Great family dining

I really like this place. I think they have the best Cobb salad in town. I have never had a bad meal here.

Very good food! Interesting back story on how the restaurant was started.Generous portions and interesting names for menu selections. It's like dining in a museum. The staff are very attentive and courteous.

I liked Sanfords. They have an incredible selection of craft beers. That said, my wife is not a beer drinker. She ordered a mixed drink and it was so sweet and syrupy that she couldn't drink it. Then they brought something less sweet and syrupy but she still wasn't impressed. The service was just Ok. I would have expected better... More

Poor service. Food mostly fried. Huge servings--but of what? I was not impressed. In addition, I visited during happy hour but did not receive the discounts. Upon inquiring, the waitress told me the "website was all wrong, and there was no happy hour." Every establishment gets one chance.

I was part of a large party (10) in Rapid for a concert. We selected the restaurant based on the menu and the proximity to the concert venue. The place was very busy, but not so crowded that our experience should have been so lousy. The menu is huge and boring. Most of us ordered salads as a result. Three... More

I was with a party of ten on a Friday night. The restaurant was very busy and several at my table waited ten minutes longer than others to get served. The salad I ordered was disappointing but I guess this restaurant is not famous for its food but it seems to be a happening place on Friday night.

Interesting and varied menu, with lots of options that you just won't find at other places.. The food is good, the prices are reasonable, and if you're looking for a casual place to go with friends or family, this is it.

We went here for lunch and had the appetizer sampler. Overall, the food was decent, but our bloody marys were so salty, we couldn't drink them. The fried onions were tasty and the service was good.

Great memorabilia on the walls to take you back to yesteryear. Pretty good menu. We've tried quite a few things..Nachos are always good. The Groovin' Reuben is good too. My boss likes the BLT and garlic parmesan fries. Large portions will fill you up. Sometimes things aren't as hot as they should be when they get to you, but that... More
