We stopped in on a Friday night based on reviews. This is a mid sized traditional Wisconsin bar/restaurant. The service was very good and the fish was good. We will be back!

The locals know where to go for a great burger - now so do you! Just off the main drag in the Dells, the Sand Bar is a great place to hide from the din of the tourists. Friendly, comfy, great food and wallet-friendly prices. Try one of the local beers - they are all good.

Like your corner bar back home, the sand bar is friendly and has a good atmosphere. We had the Friday fish fry, good portions, reasonably priced and GOOD.

The fish fry was very good and service was fast and courteous! The only thing I would have changed is that it was confusing where to sit a d how to get someone's attention

The title tells you what you need to know. I wished the service would have been better. People go to the Dells to have a good time not feel like an inconvenience to the employees. The atmosphere, well, it's a bar. That said, the steak sandwich is worth going for and they have a fantastic selection of bottled beers.

We were looking for a place for my son's birthday dinner. This place had great reviews so we tried it out. Food was fantastic. However, be sure to look on menu to see if gratuity is included on your bill. We paid with a visa gift card and left a tip. The next day we checked our balance on the... More

If you want some fun you have to stop at The Sand Bar. Great drinks at a good price. They have live music, with sing a longs. It gets a little crazy on the weekends, but it is good clean fun. Enjoy my friends.

We at dinner on Saturday during the 4th of July weekend. We ate early before the crowds (it was PACKED on the 4th). After reading the reviews of this place online we thought we would give it a try.

My bad, we of course offer sautéed onions with our steak, guess that means you'll have to come back and have another one! But seriously, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your vacation to the Dells! Hope you and your family enjoyed! More
