If you're in (or near) Burwell, check out the Sandstone

This is a 'real gem'. We've eaten here often and every occasion has been an excellent experience. Save room for the dessert!

passing thru we decided to stop in Burwell for lunch. What a score finding the Sandstone Grill. Great soups, sandwiches, and burgers. Looked like delicious homemade pies although we were so full didn't order desert. A very busy place but the wait help kept up.

This restaurant is one of those delightful surprises that occasionally you will find in the middle of nowhere. We ate both lunch and dinner there and both meals were very good. The hamburgers and Reuben are delicious, as are the salads. Treat yourself to a steak when you eat here. Be sure to save room for dessert.

The food is always suitable to enjoy with your favorite glass of wine. The atmosphere is an old hotel, small enough to be cosy, large enough to usually find a seat.

The resturant was filled with patrons, mostly cowboys and their guests. There was only two waitresses, but very efficient, welcoming and attractive. I ordered fillet mignon, my wife salmon, both were prepared to our specifications and well presented, with rice pelaf and the vegetable of the day, summer squash and asparagus, both with vibrant fresh colors. The wine was of... More

OK, admittedly there is not much to choose from in this area but I would drive for miles to get here even If there was. I have dined at The Sandstone Grill many times through the years and have always found it a great experience in every way. The menu has considerable variety, the food when it arrives is well...

dined here friday 7/11/14. being a weekend and with Burwell being located close to Calamus Resovoir it was very busy. I had a wonderful double patty hamburger, it was flavorful and juicy! For soup I had polish sausage kraut soup, sounds weird BUTit was delicious! Service was good although they were very busy

I was expecting a traditional, rural, sandhills, beef and chicken with loads of carbs and frozen desserts! Oh my was I wrong. Certainly there was fine beef, but there was also so much more! Our group has diverse tastes in food, and every one was more than satisfied and all of it was excellent. The home made desserts were a... More

The Sandstone Grill is one of the best "hidden gems" in the area. It has good food, great service and a nice atmosphere.
