everytime I go to mcfaddens they are very rude and all the bartenders always have really bad negative vibes.....i went to mcfaddens for my sister in laws birthday on Friday feb.8,2013 and the bartender was really rude and ignored us until we tipped him.....I don't tip until I am leaving not after every dink I order you need to earn your tip and not by being rude...the bartender was also working in sweat pants and tennis shoe sitting on the bar I thought that was really ghetto and unprofessional looking. They are really pricy as well so you should at least have good customer service. Such a waste of time and money never going there again I will stick to margaritaville .

On February 2, 2013, my boyfriend and I traveled from the West Valley to have dinner and drinks with friends who live out in Chandler. We started off at RA, which was excellent. The food and service were great, we should have stayed there. We then headed over to the Sandbar. We were there for an hour or so. We had a few drinks, probably around 2-3 each one of us. Out of no where, a bouncer taps my friend on her shoulder while she's sitting at our table having a conversation, she turns her head and he asked "are you okay?" to that she answered "yes, I'm fine" and turned back to continue with our conversation. He then yelled, "that's it, you're out of here!!!" At that point all four of us were stunned and a bit confused as to why he was so rude, yelling and kicking her out. Our friend, her husband asked the guy why he was kicking her out? The bouncer said "because" you're out of here too. The Bouncer continued to be obnoxious saying "yeah...I'm the guy who kicked your wife and you out!!" then requested back up. We found our server and told her we needed to close our tab because we were getting kicked out, she too was stunned and asked "why?" but rolled her eyes when she notice who the bouncer was, she then said "I'm sorry, but I'm not surprised" Once we were trying to leave, we had bouncers all around us. The walkway between the bar and pool was crowded and very narrow. As we tried to make our way out, we were shoved forward by the bouncers which caused my friend and I to trip over what seem like sandbags and fell into the pool, it was freezing!!! I requested to speak to the manager and this guy came out, couldn't be older than 25 yrs. and basically was just trying to brush us off by handing us his business card. The bouncer who started all this disappeared once the cops were going to be called. This was so humiliating. I've never been embarrassed or treated like a piece of trash instead of an appreciated consumer/patron. Needless to say, I was furious at that point for we were trying to leave, there was no reason we needed to get shoved. I filed a report with the Chandler PD. They didn't seem surprised to hear that the bouncers are jerks and aggressive. They said they have been called out for the same reason. The cops were so nice and appreciated our situation and understood our frustration, disappointment and anger. They said, you guys seem like the kind of people they should want here, but unfortunately that's the treatment you get when you come to places like the Sandbar. The cops continued to tell us to stay away from Sandbar and try dive bars, they gave us a few names, saying that it's highly unlikely you'll ever be mistreated at a dive bar...
If the lodge didn't over charge my card 3 visits in a row, I would recommend this place. Instead I have to expose them for the repeated credit card errors they have made! Maybe this will force them to hire some honest servers, but probably not! This has also happened to two of my other friend several times as well... very disappointing. This past Saturday, We went to the lodge at about midnight for some late night snacks we ordered $30 worth of food and drinks. My friend and I split the bill (So about $20 each after tip). She messaged me today to see if I was billed for the meal, because her card was charged $30. I checked my account and they charged me $40, and these were posted charges, not pending!! This has happened too many times and every time I have to call several times to dispute it, and a manage never happens to be around. At this point I'm convinced that their servers do this intentionally in hopes that people will be too drunk to remember what they did or leave their receipts behind, so they can't dispute it. Well I definitely was NOT drunk and I know I was ripped off. You have lost a customer because of your bad business practices and dishonest servers.

AMAZING!!! WOW!! HOLY CRAP!!! This bar is by far my new favorite place!! I walked in here last year after a football game and it was packed. The girls are so hot I almost couldn t control myself. I was living out of town but business has thankfully relocated me to AZ so I am now able to get back into the place I have missed so much. Did I mention that I bought the shirt the waitress was wearing. I guess it s something they do there. NO complaints from this gal. They rearranged some of the tables and I was slightly thrown off with the the new decor, but hey every place needs a facelift every now and again. I only recognized maybe a couple girls from last year and that was a pleasant suprise. Can t wait for Cards games to set in full motion so I can see me girls more often. Great drink specials, very Coyote Ugly themed atmosphere, hot (i mean HOT) girls everywhere you look and the best variety of music in the area.

Maybe it's that I'm used to Texas strip clubs or maybe that I have a huge problem with unclassy strippers. "precious" aka Angelica is a dancer there she's also the reason for a lot of divorce and antibiotics in Maricopa county. I'm sure she alone is the reason for the antibiotics resistance strain of the clap going around Phoenix. She's a super young female that thrives on the fact that men cheat on their wives or gf with her and lives being the reason people break up. She got the restaurant manager fired for sleeping with him and she's known to take home clients aside from that she doesn't have the body of a good stripper she's just stick skinny and easy. I'd say drive the extra miles and pay the higher cover for a Scottsdale strip club abc is a low class place
