Loved the food, can't wait to go back. The beer and wine was also better than most. I like the little cozy atmosphere. The only thing I don't like is the bathrooms are one seaters, I saw women going into the Men's many times because the ladies was occupied. I personally am not comfortable with that.

The portions were very small and or no flavor. I had the wiener schnitzel which is a good yardstick. It was served very hot and had a light batter, a good sign. Unfortunately the veal was not pounded thin before cooking. Also the red cabbage did not have much taste, perhaps toned down for local taste? My wife and i... More

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
