Help picking restaurant for alumni reunion

I work for a small liberal arts college in central illinois. I am planning an alumni reunion for March 8th and would like to see if there are suggestions for restaurants where we could go and have private seating for 20-30 people. I also am interested in only restaurants that have items on the menu less than $20.

I would suggest contacting Chandler's Visitors Bureau for assistance.

There's a bunch of places that come to mind, but I think the suggestion to contact the cvb is a great one.

Offhand, if you like Mexican, El Zocalo in downtown Chandler has a great patio, and could probably section off a portion for your group.

What part of Chandler are you looking at? Not that it is a huge city, but it is about 10-15 miles from one end to the other. It is a part of the Greater Phoenix area, with nearby cities of Tempe, Mesa, and Gilbert (as well as the Ahwatukee part of Phoenix) that could possibly be close to where you want.

I can't really think of any restaurants that have menu items over $20 (though I'm sure there are some), so I think you'll be in good shape there.

The Waterfront in Chandler might be a good choice for you. Their regular menu is pretty basic (burgers & sandwiches), but they have a 5 star chef and do catering and special menus if you plan ahead. They also have a pretty good night life, if your group wants to stay and party a little. You should try contact them at 480-732-0929. Ask for the owner, Jay.
