The Craftsman was inspired by a simple, hardworking farmer who loved his family, the land, and working with his hands. His headstone reads, ‘A Craftsman’. Today, his traditions and the spirit of American craftsmanship live on.

Craftsman Distillers creates a wide range of high end, small batch, hand crafted spirits. We produce all of our products on a 300 gallon copper hybrid still built in Idaho. This hybrid still allows us to craft any type of distilled spirit we can dream up. Craftsman spirits are highlighted throughout our cocktail list.

    This was our first-time dining here. It is a small restaurant which also makes it intimate and comfortable. I ordered wine and my spouse ordered a craft cocktail which she said was delicious (wine is wine so no comment from me). We like to share so we had two small plates and shared an entree. The portions were generous (we had to take some of the entree home even sharing), the food was creative and delicious and the service attentive and friendly.

    We had some friends in town staying on that side of Phoenix not knowing where to go we elected to try Craftsman. It is a small restaurant and quiet First the drinks were great, fun tequila drinks. Appetizer was tasty. Our main entrees were huge and certainly big enough to share. Volcano Pork, outstanding, chicken, fish and chips all got rave reviews. We can most certainly recommend you give Craftsman a try!!

    This is a neighborhood gem, and we love it. They revised their drink and food menus- we enjoyed the rum rebellion, and enjoyed the duck ramen; both new additions. We miss some of the burger options though, maybe they will come back sometime. The pizookie of the week was outstanding - s'mores- and we loved the way they cooked the marshmallows. The wait staff is also top notch!

    We were seated right away. Food was very good, drinks were very good, service was excellent (especially considering it was Valentines Say and there were only 3 working the bar/dining area), and ambience was meh. They can only do so much with that given the space. Overall, very good.

    We ended up sitting at the bar for brunch and had a great time with excellent food and cocktails! I had the rancheros, and my husband had the tiramisu French toast. The corn with the rancheros was very flavorful, and, while the description sounded very sweet for the French toast, it ended up being the perfect balance (especially enjoyed with a side of bacon). The Bourbon Buzz and Blackberry Bail Smash were great cocktails as well.

    This restaurant is ok, not as great as some of the reviews implied. The food was just ok. We ordered the lettuce wraps which were good. The lettuce used was romaine - a crunchier lettuce would have been better. The meat was tasty, sauce was overwhelming. We shared the volcano pork. The portion was huge - my husband and I couldn’t finish it. It was good however a little bland. Needed more spices. The waiter was disappointing- he brought our lettuce wraps and two minutes later brought our entrees - didn’t time the serving well. Probably will not go to this restaurant again.

    Service was excellent and the were extremely busy for a Wednesday night when we went in. We were celebrating the wife's promotion and the host immediately congratulated her when we walked in. The drinks were very good and the was also. It took the kitchen some time to get us our food I assume because they were so busy but we weren't in a rush so it didn't matter.

    We had an amazing four-course dinner experience last night with Mitch Cosentino the owner of PureCru winery in Napa Valley and Jason Conti who is an excellent chef for Craftsman Cocktails and kitchen at Tempe location. As always - food was delicious and service was great. We learned about new wine from Napa Valley and had plenty of it as well. Looking forward to more events like that.

    I love this restaurant. Every time we eat there the food is great. We’ve branched out and tried some new things on the menu and they are always good tasting and well prepared and plated. The service is wonderful and their kitchen is very efficient in getting things out. It’s not a large place so it must be very efficiently run. They are now one of our favorite places!

    Milah & Des are gracious hostesses and Joe is a great mixologist. The bar is well stocked with higher end libations. Jason's wine list is admirable as is the way he treats the Steelhead and the Volcano Pork shank entrées and in fact ALL of his creations. Simple considerations like Haddock instead of Cod make for an elevated dining experience. Sample the Champalous Vouvray which I've yet to find anywhere else. But leave some for my next visit !!!

    The food was tasty however the charcuterie board had no price to it (it read Market Value) well that was about $50. You got a lot of food however I don’t feel that’s fair to customers. You get blind sided with that on your bill later. We sat in the back corner and the place was freezing (felt like we were sitting outside in the 35 degree weather). Drinks are on the pricier side.

    Tried Craftsman for the first time in a date night. New local spot near our home… ordered lettuce cups and the lettuce was room temp and soggy. We needed up sharing the green chile burger and that was not very flavorful..lacked some spice and kick to it! When you hear of a green chili you would assume a flavor profile that fits the description. Drinks on point! Great bar service & both knew how to create the custom drinks!

    I love this restaurant. We’ve eaten here around 5 times alone and with friends and the quality and service is always excellent. We love the birria, the Pork Volcano, the Craftsman Salad, and the truffle fries. Everyone’s food order has been terrific regardless of what they ordered. They also take reservations which I love so we know we can get in when it works for us. Sitting at the bar is fun as well. Desiree took good care of us the other night. They all work hard and do a great job- it’s such a nice addition to the neighborhood.

    We love having this neighborhood bar that is relaxed but with an elevated drink and food menu. Service is friendly and attentive. Recommend it for a low key date night. I recommend the mac n cheese especially if they have the crawfish in stock...so yummy. The craftsman salad is delicious too and it is HUGE so plan on sharing.

    If you are looking for a new venue with excellent food and a warm, inviting dining environment, you should definitely try the Craftsman in Tempe. It is not as "pretentious" as the one is Scottsdale and the food really is special. Service is impeccable with Milah and cocktails perfect under Joe's hand. If you are from the midwest and looking for THE Friday "fish fry," this is the place! Using haddock, it reminds me more of the fish and chips I had in England, but super delish and real beer batter! And it you want a real treat, try the Volcano Pork - YUMMO! Seriously, put this on your list to try and enjoy!
