A quest for wings to equal or better than the real wings found in Buffalo New York, Mark opened the original location in 2012. Within a few years we outgrew that location and needed a newer and bigger location and in June of 2017 we opened our location on Arizona Ave.    Mark is also a Licensed Realtor and Bar/Restaurant consultant.

Why "The Reef"?  Mark, a Buffalonian by birth and a NAUI-PADI Master Diver with over 3,000 hours underwater, participates in many ocean Caribbean reef conservation 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 that makes The Reef the place to be.  Every item on our menu is one of Mark’s favorites!  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 2019, 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.
