Nice meal

The food was good, the beer cold, service was ok. It wasn't very busy and our waitress wasn't as attentive as I would have liked. Husband loved the decor.

Has a very roadhouse-like feel to it. All sorts of crazy stuff on the walls. The menu is jam-packed full of any kind of food that is absolutely terrible for you, but SOOOO good!. The portions are not for the weak of heart. If you walk away hungry, you did something wrong. They also have ridiculously good beer prices (I'd... More

Delightful people working there, parmesan garlic fries that were incredible, and a Cajun Bleu Burger that is one of the highlights of my trip. Workers and a manager that love to visit and aren't to serious about themselves. Will make this a regular stop when I come to Rapid!

Sanfords is always a go to place for me when visiting Rapid City. The decor is fun, place is clean and staff is friendly. They have a large selection of beer and food. The menu is cartoonishly large and hard to look through but have always found something good to eat. Always leave full and enjoyed the visit.

We stopped in for beer and dinner. My rueben was severed with a healthy amount of meat and a pile of fries. Service was very well done.

Overall, I liked Sandford's. It was within walking distance of the Holiday Inn near the civic center, has decent food for a fair price, and quite a few beers on tap. The only compliant I have is the menu is a bit to busy and I found it difficult to read.

Years ago when driving thru Wyoming and Montana, we stopped to eat at Sanford's. After one meal there, we would stop and eat there whenever we came across one. We were happy to find out Rapid City had one when we visited there this year. We were seated quickly and we happened to be there during their half price appetizers... More

My baby turned 15 this month and he always picks Sandfords for his birthday dinner. The food is so amazing and the service was fantastic.

"If you don't order the 'waldren wall banger' you're wasting your time. " A friend passed that knowledge onto me on my first visit to Stanford's, and three years later, it's still true. I pass that knowledge on to friends whenever I visit, and many of them end up disappointed when they don't heed my advice. It's a good place... More
