The Reef held a Benefit Rally on Jan. 30th 2016 for Ofc.Tyler Steward of Flagstaff PD that was killed in the line of duty working a domestic violence call. Together we helped raise $11,000+ to build a memorial and start a foundation to honor and never forget our first responder heroes.
The Reef is always striving to give back to our community and honor those that protect us 24/7. Thank-you to all of you who currently and previously served.

A Little About Us
In 2012, new ownership (Mark) took over what was known as "The Draft House". After some remodeling and a whole lot of cleaning, "The Reef" was born in Chandler Arizona on June 18th 2012.
Why "The Reef" Name? Mark (a NAUI-PADI Master Diver with over 3,000 hours underwater and participation in many Reef conservations projects..hence "The Reef" and "Dive-Bar") contributed years of bar experience from Buffalo New York and around North America (many as a bar patron) as well as his taste and recipes for some really good food. Since then, Reef Wings have won every contest they have been entered into and have been named "Best Wings of the Valley" by a a few different organizations, including editors of The New Times weekly magazine and many Reef Wing Fans. We got rid of the bad (attitudes mostly) but kept most of the excellent staff. In 2014 we celebrated Dave's 20th year behind that same bar, many other staff have logged over 10 years on the job. That's some real dedication and love for their jobs, and a big reason we're successful today.
The Reef is not just about Wings, we set ourselves apart from most bars and restaurants in Chandler because we're always coming up with ways to give back to the community. From the Boys and Girls club of Chandler, the 100Club and Yarnel Firefighters' families which were struck with forest fire fighting deaths to more recently the St. Baldrick's Foundation that helps fund Childhood Cancer Research and Lymphoma Society. The January 30, 2016 charity event to support a fallen Ofc. T.Stewart of Flagstaff PD built funds that will go towards a memorial and a foundation to forever honor this fallen hero. We helped the charity raise of $11k in just 5 hours. Over the past three years we have collectively raised well over $45,000 for these special charities.
We're a friendly neighborhood bar & grill where Sports, Spirits, Food & Fun all come together to help those in need.
