    Many go for the beer, but don't skip the food! Shrimp and grits, buttermilk fried chicken, and the pork enchiladas were all very good. This was my first time going to SanTan in several months, but without a doubt, I will NOT allow as much time to lapse before my next visit!

    Food is really good and fresh, san Tan has the best craft beer in the valley. Great for dates, especially on Monday nights where the bar turns into a "movie theatre". Light down, beers up and a movie playing through out the place. I've been coming here for years and never get tired of the place

    The San Tan Brewing Company makes a great variety of beers, and you can see parts of the brewing and canning operation in action. The food is better than standard pub fare with a heavy Southwest influence menu. I keep coming back for loaded nachos and Devil's Ale

    This was our second visit to San Tan Brewery. Our first visit, about 6 months ago, was great so we decided to come back for the special occasion of my birthday. Overall, the visit was not really special. I had made reservations so was expecting what I would hope to be a "nice table" with a view near window, etc. The service was "fine", no mention of my birthday. Service was not slow nor was it prompt. Just about average. No mention of any dessert specials, specifically directed at my birthday. No drink specials, etc. We did order a pumpkin cheesecake and that arrived with no candle or anything special. So, I guess in a nutshell the evening was not "special" in any manner.

    This was only on of numerous trips my wife and I have made to SanTan Brewing Company. Food is good, a little more than just "bar food", and portions are large. The specialty brews are great and can be purchased for take out. The beer/ale brews have something for everyone, plus there is a mixed drink menu. We went to watch the World Series game and have dinner. It's always fun. As a bonus we got a favorite fall seasonal earlier than it hits the stores. Parking can be scarce during the day, but easy at night. Noise is much better on the large covered patio dining area, but games are not visible outside. If you want a local brewing company with a restaurant and sports bar this is your place.

    I was in on Saturday aug 24th with my mom & stepdad in the table in the back corner. We had a 1:00 reservation. I have to say I was in the restaurant business for over 10 years and now work at a call center. Our server was by far one of the best I've ever had. I could tell she was pretty busy and yet she handled our table with grace and professionalism. She made great recommendations and made me and my family feel special and that along with the delicious food made it one of the best dining experiences I have had here iin the valley. We will definitely be back because of her! I'm only sorry that I do not remember her name.

    San Tan is a popular place and getting a table sometimes requires a wait time. But, booking a table online completely smoothed out the experience, we were able to walk in, go right to our prepared table, and get settled immediately. It worked very well.

    The food was fantastic, and the service excellent. It was Father's Day, and the restaurant was very busy. Our server was friendly, speedy, and efficient. The food was delivered at the right temperature by another server, which demonstrated to me a good team effort to make sure we had a great time. And I now have a new favorite beer, their Gordo Stout. My only complaint is the restaurant is loud, and conversation is difficult.

    Celebrated Fathers' Day with first visit to San Tan. Very busy time with wait at the door. Our table was waiting with our open table reservation. Fun atmosphere with families and groups enjoying the late afternoon celebrating Fathers' Day. Large contingent of staff in the restuarant visible, and frequent checks to take care of our needs. Tried the sampler of steak, shrimp and ribs on special. Food was excellent with a bit of southwest flavor/spice in the ribs/sauce and fantastic flavor in the steak. Table ordered Bangers and Mash as well and would certainly recommend as well. Of course, then there is the beer, which had options for everyone's taste. We'll definitely be back!

    We had Father's Day lunch at the San Tan Brewery and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place was packed but with our reservations we were able to be seated right away. The servers were a little overwhelmed with the crowd, but we never felt neglected or failed to receive drink refills. Although we went for the beer selection (which was great), the food was amazing - try the stuffed bacon cheeseburger!

    The food was great! This is a very loud restaurant it made it hard to have conversation with the everyone at our table. We had made reservations and had hoped to sit outside. However, they do not have outside misters or ceiling fans over all the seating. With the AZ warm evening, the table they offered us was in a very stifling area. We chose to wait for a table inside which, like I said was very loud. Not all expectations were met but we made a great time of it anyway.

    Dined on 6/4/2013
    It is noisy and busy during the dinner hour and is a popular spot for dinner and beer right in the middle of the historic downtown Chandler, next to the San Marcos hotel. You have to book well in advance for a dinner reservation on the weekend. It is certainly the atmosphere of a sports bar with the added benefit of the brewery's excellent beers. We got a flight of seven which were a generous 4 oz each that we shared. The food was very tasty and very good, far better that a typical sports bar, almost gourmet. Service was friendly and just right - not too much or too little. We enjoyed taking a stroll around the couple blocks of downtown after dinner before driving home. We'll be back.

    San Tan was great. Food was really tasty. Started with like cilantro hummus and then chicken street tacos. The chicken was well seasoned and plentiful. Got a local beer and it commie tee the food very well. It was a Tuesday night and every table was full. Very casual scene, loud and energetic so was a nice departure from the stuffy corporate dinners my staff expect when traveling. Downtown Chandler is pretty cool, I will go back.

    We went on a Thursday evening on the cusp of Happy Hour so we could get our appetizer and drink orders in. The beers were great but was very disappointed with the appetizers, especially the hummus platter that had a micro amount of hummus and very poor value. The wings were fine but nothing great. The entrees were much better especially the mac/cheese burger, other burgers and the pork with beans and rice. Loved the place and the ambiance and the service was excellent. Food was good but they sure need to work on the appetizers to make it a better value.

I went back the following sunday for Mother's Day with my whole family and had another great experience. I was in and out in 45 minutes with a full belly and an impressed family. It was a win for me and a win for the people I brought, as they have visit the establishment since.

    We went with both of our daughters' families for Mothers's Day. It was crowded, noisy and not really family oriented. I have enjoyed dining at San Tan Brewery in the past and think they have a good menu. It was just not the right place for a Mothers' Day buffet. They had typical bar food rather than brunch and many of the patrons were there to enjoy the brewery not Mother's Day.

    I must admit I was extremely disappointed with the service, food, and attitude of our server. I have been to San Tan at least 50 times and this was the worst experience, which has me thinking if I want to return. I had family in town from out of state who are serious hopheads. They enjoyed the San Tan products while attending the GABF last year. To our surprise you were out of all IPA's on Sunday. They then ordered the soup and special pulled pork sandwich from the special menu that the server provided, only to be told that neither was available or ready yet. Why put out a menu that the food was not available or ready? Why not have the server tell us that there were no IPA's available instead of waiting for us to try and order them?

    We're new to AZ. Our friends in Chandler suggested meeting at San Tan Brewing. We were pleased to find that they accept reservations and we easily got one for 7pm. We were seated within a few minutes of our arrival. My only complaint is that they seated us right next to the kitchen area so there was a lot of foot traffic. But the waitress did a great job and the food and drink were good. We will return.

    We were disappointed when we were shown to our table - It was right next to the kitchen door and the door was actually touching one of the chairs. Plus, it was about 95 degrees. The air conditioning was not on because the doors to the outside were open. They moved us to another table after we complained but it was still very hot. We made the reservations because we had visitors from out of town and were looking forward to going to a great local spot.
