Very unique restaurant.

You could spend hours here just viewing all the old time items on the walls and ceiling. Sanford's gives one of the most generous portions of food in all of Rapid City. Their menu is a book so you will have no problem finding something you want to try.

Awesome menu, huge menu. For me, I found it very overstimulating. There is SO much stuff hanging from the walls and ceiling. While the place is huge, it is divided up into lots of different areas so you don't feel the size. If you get the chance, no matter what you order, you have to try the incredible Parmesan Garlic...

Great location, like the decor, and the menu variety is super. It is hard to find a good salad when traveling, and they have several.

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!

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.

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.
