This summer, Sandra's had one of the best deals in town--dinner for two, with two entrees, two 16-oz. beers, and two wines--for $35. I'm afraid we couldn't finish it, but we had dinner for the rest of the weekend. There are many delights on this menu, so we're going to have to work our way through them. Pork hock was... More

Sometimes a place is so straightforward and obvious that it's easy to overlook. Sandra's Restaurant is a good example. It's completely German. German food, German atmosphere, German beer and wine, and very delicious. It's a plain building on a one-way street with a small sign. Blink and you'll miss it. My advice is: don't blink. Stop in and check it... More

It is almost hidden in plain sight. The unassuming building with the nondescript name hides a restaurant with great German food and beer on draft. The staff is patient and answers questions. My wife and I were both very happy and very full when we left. The beers on draft are mainly German brews that you do not see elsewhere.... More

Went with another couple for dinner there and the German fare was excellent! Three of us had the sauerbraten which was flavorful and tender. Even the sides are well prepared. Our fourth diner had the beef tips which she also found well prepared. Our other companion also wanted to try a brat link, which has convinced him to return on... More

Defintely a TEN PLUS, when it comes to the delicious, generous portions AND SERVICE of Sandra's. The Buffets are the BEST for the money anywhere. It has become an enjoyable HABIT to dine regularly at Sandra's !!

If you like genuine authentic German cuisine then this is the place for you. From soups to breads and in between, this place serves up hearty German staples like Wienerschnitzel and Bratwurst with Sauerkraut, hot potato salad, etc. All homemade and delicious, and you can wash it down with a good draft or bottled brew. They have different featured foods... More

The food is really really good and the service is great. They had this dessert called spaghetti ice that was vanilla ice cream made to look like noodles and a homemade strawberry sause that was to die for. I inquired if they would be willing to sell some and they did. Sandra came out to thank me and that was... More

We visited around 4:30pm on Saturday, June 7th. We made this our 1st stop after checking in to our hotel and a short walk to Sandra's. From the website I saw they were closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday over the summer. So our only option was our 1st night. I am so glad we visited! We were greeted by Sandra,... More

I had the wiener schnitzel and it was amazing! Probably one of the best that i've had outside of Germany. On Saturdays and Sundays they have an excellent deal where you can have two meals for $35. The two for $35 additionally comes with a choice of soup or salad for each person, and a choice of a bottle of... More
