“Nice place to walk around, but typical mall fare.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Mostly clothing stores, food "court", and outer perimeter shops and upscale casual dining. Not a bad place, open air, and clean. But not a place I will drive out of my way to go to. I was in the area so stopped in for lunch and to kill time at a bookstore.

“Always Something To Do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Whether your shopping, wanting to eat, or stroll the breeze ways Tempe Marketplace has something to do for everyone. I find it versatile as well, if your hanging out or simply just running in and out of a store the selections and crowds are always manuverable. There is only one place I'd steer clear from is the restaurant Cadillac Ranch. The atmosphere is cool, but the food is not great at all! So meeting friends for drinks is cook, but dinner is a no-no!

“Cute outdoor mall, much better shopping than Mill Ave in Tempe.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2010

This mall isn't very far from Mill Ave and the ASU campus when driving, less than 15 minutes or so. I planned an afternoon of shopping at Mill Ave, but after finding that they didn't have many stores, drove to Tempe Marketplace instead.

It is a very pleasant, cute outdoor mall. They have big outdoor fireplaces, fountains, and seating areas. The mall is one story, it's pretty much a straight shot from one end to the other. I think they have some big stores around the outside, not attached to the main mall, but I didn't get to them. The main mall has stores like Victoria's Secret, Gap, Barnes & Noble, and the Coffee Bean. They had a food court as well as some sit down places to eat.

Overall it was a pleasant way to spend a few hours. There's not much here that you probably can't see at a mall at home. They didn't really have souvenir shops like Old Town Scottsdale. I wouldn't say this is a can't miss, it's basically just a mall although it is a nice mall. They do have a movie theater as well.

Bottom line, if you are in Tempe, this mall is fine, but I would rather spend more time in Phoenix, Scottsdale, etc.
