Phoenix East Valley - Sports Bars with good food

The Euro2008 soccer tournament kicks off today.

Does anybody know of any good bars/restaurants in the East Valley area
that would be a good place to watch soccer and also enjoy a nice lunch?

I know I can probably go to most any sports bar to see it, but I was hoping
to find a place that has good food too.

  1. I know the Skeptical Chymist in N. Scottsdale is showing the Soccer....
    I would think their sister restaurant Fibber McGee's in Chandler would be as well....

    Love the Fish and Chips and the Irish Breakfast...
    Get a side of the curry sauce to dip your chips in to...yum!

    1. I've had some good lunches at the Half Moon Sports Grill. There's one on Kyrene and Elliot in Tempe, as well as some other locations in the valley.

      I'm not sure if Four Peaks would be showing it, but they're definitely a good choice for grub and drink as well.

      1. I agree that Half Moon and Four Peaks are good choices. I've also found good food at CK Tavern in Ahwatukee and McDuffy's Grille in Chandler. Both have tons of TVs.

          Although not a "sports bar" , the bar @ Grainbelt Grillhouse is beautiful. There must be 6 or 8 TV's and they have great food.

        2. Haven't been in years, but Eli's in Scottsdale is awesome. We've enjoyed salad and salmon sliders. They're known for their filet sliders. Amazing homemade dressings too!

          1. I like the food at the Baseline Sports bar. It's pretty standard bar fare, but doesn't seem as greasy as some others. Good grilled chicken wings & nice crispy curly fries.

            I think the George & Dragon draws a big soccer crowd, but I can't comment on thier food.
