First time visit St. Patrick's Day for dinner. It was busy and they took phone reservations even during this very busy time of year for area. Biggest problem getting there was terrible parking limitations. Menu different and included many types of food, but of course beer....imported on tap varities. Salad greens crispy. Did not try the soup. The main course... More

I've had pork schnitzel in Koln and Munich at fine dining places and Sandras blew them away in quality, preparation, and taste. Unheard of fork tender schnitzel, and this was on the lunch buffet. Also on the buffet were sausages, potato salad, sauerkraut, dark bread, and sauces. Typical that the German owner sat down with a beverage and joined some... More

Met some friends here based upon the other trip advisor reviews. Well the place is small and quaint. They do have a good beer selection. However I thought the menu was pretty limited and no sauerbraten. My pork cutlet was just ok as were the other meals. They have music, of sorts, including an accordion player. They play quite a...

The planning to eat at Sandra's was done through Tripadvisor. My wife and I overall very pleased with the lunch buffet. Our guests were two elderly lady friends (85 and 90) who totally enjoyed everything on the buffet and both commented how good ALL of the food was. All four of us agreed this was like excellent German home cooking.... More

I love good German food and the food at Sandra's is very good. In all honesty we have only been there for lunch but have ordered off the menu and chosen the buffet. The buffet changes daily but is always great. Typically buffet food is so-so but the schnitzel is first rate as well as the soups, breads and side... More

We stopped in for lunch, one afternoon and really enjoyed our food. The wait staff was great and helpful in our decision making. The food was great and very reasonably priced. I would like to go back again for dinner next time in town. Be sure to stop in if you have a taste for German sausage sauerkraut or wiener... More

We went for the Tuesday night special after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. It is a great deal at $35 for 2 with soup/salad and 2 entrees and 4 beers or glasses of wine. The meal tasted like authentic, homemade German food. There were 4 of us and we all had different meals and all thought they were great. Weiner... More
