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, Mark bought what was then known as "The Draft House", now called our “old location” because it’s closed.  Within a few years we outgrew that location and needed new and bigger digs with a bit more class and in June of 2017 we opened our location on Arizona Ave.  Mark having worked with Jon Taffer from Bar Rescue had learned a lot about bar design and combined that with his engineering background, came up with the design for The “New” Reef.  What’s in the future for The Reef?  We’re currently looking for a location in Scottsdale as well as an exploratory trip back to the Caribbean for a spot as well.  Mark is also a Licensed Realtor and Bar/Restaurant consultant.

Why "The Reef" Name?  Mark, a Buffalonian by birth and a NAUI-PADI Master Diver with over 3,000 hours underwater,  participated in many ocean reef conservations projects..hence "The Reef"  Mark contributed his many years of bar experience from Buffalo New York and around North America (many as a bar patron) and his taste and recipes for some really good food to make The Reef the place to be.  Every item on our menu is Mark’s favorite!  Take a look at the bar top, embedded are many of Mark’s shark and underwater photos taken over the years including a couple that were published in Dive Magazine. ​

"Best Wings of the Valley" voted by a few different organizations, including editors of The New Times weekly magazine and many Reef Wing Fans helping us sell over 2,200lbs of wings every week!!

The Community 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 2012 thru 2016, we collectively raised over $55,000 for many local charities

We're a friendly neighborhood bar & grill where Sports, Spirits, Food & Fun all come together to help those in need.
