BarFly's Review of Chan's Steakery
Conveniently located only for the less mobile, more unsavory, denizens of downtown Milwaukie, Chan's draws a salty crowd of mostly over the hill hoi polloi. Karaoke is the only draw at Chan's; the enthusiast will find it here seven nights a week. Non-smokers beware as air circulation is non-existent. Full menu till 10pm, bar "snacks" until close.
Well drinks start at $3.25, beer from $2.25, regularly. Open at 11am to whenever bartender wants to go home. Karaoke 7 days beginning at 9pm.

Pretty good food and decent drinks... but if you are going to call it a "karaoke bar" then invest in a modern sound system and get a KJ who actually gives a shit about music.
I have been coming to this place for ten years and never once had bad food or drink. The staff are friendly and the food is the best Chinese out there for the price. Not to mention the size of the dishes are good for two. They could use a remodel but that would not make my food taste any better. Not the place for uptight judgemental people, but for someone who wants good food, drink, and friendly people. One of my favorite places to go and I will always be a customer of chans.
Worst bartender I have ever had. Never been treated so poorly in my life. I don't care if you're having a bad night there is no excuse to treat others like she treated me and my family. I will never go back. Oh and the food was not good and the rest of the staff treated my family and I like we needed to leave just because we weren't regulars. I was called names and pushed out of the bar all because I asked what time it was and why the bartender was being so rude. No I was not "86ed for being a complete douchebag" and I have at least ten other people that would testify to that. I honestly had bad service and want others to know about it.
I used to go to Chans for their food ALLOT, have not been in almost a year,,, we went and had dinner there last night, I must say, I was VERY dissapointed and it will be a LONG time before I go back. I ordered a TOP SIRLOIN steak,,, I received a T BONE.... when I brought this to the attention of the waitress she simply told me they would only charge me for the price of the Top Sirloin since the T Bone price is more expensive,.,,, oh what a great deal, so I get to pay for something I ordered but did not get,,,, I think the correct thing would have been at the VERY LEAST to cut my dinner price in HALF since I did not get what I ordered. The steak (nor the fried rice) had the flavor it used to have since the last time I was there... probably new cooks, anyways, its not the food I remembered and probably wont be back.... left VERY dissapointed and still hungry.... I used to leave very happy with left overs for lunch the next day... but that was when I would get what I ordered.
I've been coming to Chan's for a while and it's always a good time for karaoke. They have the best bartender of anywhere I've been. The crowd ranges in age from 21 to nearly 80 which I think says a lot. The atmosphere is fun and friendly. I meet someone new every time I go. The singers range from ok to great but no one rolls their eyes or judges. Dancing is encouraged but the best part is the prop guitars. Chan's brings people together.
Chan's is awesome. I celebrated my 21st Bearthday there and had a blast. I was new to the whole karaoke thing, but everyone there (people I didn't even know) made me feel so welcome. Good drink prices and food is good too! It's a really good crowd with all age ranges. Going there again on Saturday to celebrate my 22nd bearthday. I recommend it to people who like to have fun and be around very friendly people! :)
Someone really needs to control the Rabid Waitress, Before she verbally attacks any more customers..... otherwise.....The food and drinks were good.
Chan's is a great place to eat, drink and socialize. Found the daytime bartender, "junebug" was an exceptional personality. She is always smiling and joking with everyone. It's a place I will revisit next time to the area.
Yes, Chan's is a neighborhood bar, and whether young or "not so young", they always make everyone feel welcome. It's like "Cheers". Is it a meat market? No. Need a ride home cause ya had too much? It's the kind of place where you will be taken care of! The crowd is constantly different every night, and yes, there are quite a group of regulars, which in itself says something for the place. The food is awesome...drinks are good and reasonably priced. And for those so narrow minded as to belittle and make condescending remarks about anyone older than themselves, well we don't need "little" people like you anyway!
Yes, it CAN get smokey but all in all it's a great place for a girls night out. It's no meat market.So,if your lookin to hook-up? Best make other plans. I have to say tho over the "years of karaoke" my friends and I have done, this place is almost always a groove!
The karaoke host here don't know what a mixer even does! Seriously. The smoke is heavier later you stay and your guaranteed to go home smelling like a huge ashtray, used to be an okay place to go, now the crowd seems to be a group of regular drunks who know each other a little too well. There are better places to go in my opinion.
My bros in Milwaukie swear by this place.The few times I've been here it was a hell of a lot of fun.The Chinese food as well as their steaks are fuckin amazing.Who would think you can get one hell of a steak at an Asian joint.Def. will go back!
Chan's is amazing I go there 2 or 3 nights a week. The croud is of all ages from 21 - 75+. You can go and do Karaoke 7 nights a week. I live in south east portland but would drive out to Chan's any day so not to deal with all the hipsters portland has to offer. Chan's is a place where you can sing and be yourself. You dont have to worry about image at chan's. It's just a bunch of reall people having fun with real people!
Chan's Steakery in Milwaukie, OR is on of my favorite places to go for a good time! Not only is the food good, but the best part about Chanís is the fun crew and customers that frequent the bar. Karaoke starts at 7:00 p.m. every night until closing. The karaoke is fantastic and the KJís (Justin, Mikey & Craig) make (even me) sound like a superstar! The KJís are the BEST in town and they really know how to make everyone feel comfortable and show them a great time. Also, the bartenders (Missy, Shanae, Joan) and servers (Joyce, Ruthie, Pauly) are all AWESOME! They all go above and beyond to make sure everyone is taken care of and having the best experience possible, every time they come to Chanís. Thereís a wide range of people that enjoy going to Chanís. From young to not-so-young, a variety of personalities to benefit from. I will continue to visit Chanís and hope you give a try too! Donít forget to tip the crew bigÖthey deserve it! ~Regular Customer/Worldly Goddess :)
Ok, it can get smokey at times. But it's the only place where Karaoke starts at 7pm, except on mondays (8pm). And yes the regular karaoke "stars" there do alot of crooning from 7pm till about 9pm, but often a younger crowd filters in later and things pick up, alittle. Sound system is pretty good with a floor monitor to help with your performance. Very gratious KJ's especially Justin, who seem to like variety.
Chan's has a great bartender on Monday nights. She is adorable, always smiling, and you never wait long for a drink. The KJ looks a little like Vince Vaughn and he is just as hilarious! The only reason I go to Milwaukie is my girls night out at Chans's. Bottom line: It Rocks!!
First impression. Bad! I got a raw steak that had more gristle than meat. I'm talking so raw that the inside of my steak was purple. I sent it back and it came back just as raw. As far as the customer base. Pretty much all septuagenarian's. Not going to make that mistake again.
