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

Sandra's is noted for their German food. But they also have other european fare as well. There is a great buffet. We had great service. There is indoor as well as outdoor dining.

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

I have eaten here 4-5 times and it's has always been good and everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was excellent. I have tried and enjoyed the goulash, schnitzel, bratwurst and the beef tips. All good. My favorites, however, are the Thursday and Saturday specials. Rouladen and Sauerbraten respectively. I'm crazy about their red cabbage, potato pancakes and potato salad.... More

Sandra's has the BEST Deutsche Essen I've had since being in Germany 9 years ago. Unparalled quality, taste, and generous portions. Always feel like I'm dining with a family at Sandra's - the staff has the great German spirit of Freundschaft, Gemütlichkeit, und Wärme. Vielen Dank für alles !! Glenn H.

Excellent German cuisine. To start we had a lovely tomato mozzarella. Wow, they really know how to make a good tom-mot! I had the Lieberkase with the roasted potatoes and potato salad. I love my starch!! It was D-E-licious! My wife had the mixed European [she's not so good at picking one thing haha] and naturally I also got to... More

I love this food. I've eaten here a couple of times and have had the pleasure to have several different dishes. Sauerbraten is my favorite special and the goulash is my favorite regular dish. I can't wait to go for their $10 buffet. However, I might end up waddling out in that case haha!

Awful from the second we set foot in the door. Poor quality meal, horrible owner berating staff, just an all around horrible experience. Tried it a second time and JUST as bad. Stay away, plenty of other choices!

German cooking class with host/owners Sandra and Rainier. The experience was a blast, the food delicious and the host & hostess were delightful! From the Salmon,Spinach & Feta flatbread appetizer to the Strawberries & Speatzle dessert, the recipes were a nice blend of 'Old-World' with a fresh and healthy twist...and the kitchen was spotless! Highly recommended for dining or a... More
