Good bar food

Outdoor seating. Seat yourself. Quick service both when seated and food delivery. Cooked to order. Not a big menu but plenty to choose from.

Was at the Justagame Fieldhouse and stopped in for a quick bite to eat and a couple drinks. The steak sandwich is what they are basically known for and it doesn't disappoint! Nothing fancy but it hits the spot and was very tasty! Basically a typical WI bar/restaurant but worth a stop if you are in the area and don't... More

We ate here last year and enjoyed it. We had a hard working waitress back then. This time, they were extremely understaffed given it was a Sunday Packer game and the place was packed with people from across the street at the basketball tournament. We had to go looking for someone to wait on us and no one was visibly... More

Wow! So, FYI, your food was served exactly as it was when you gave a good review last year. One way we can keep cost down is using wax paper, this allows us to provide FRESH, REAL food at prices LOWER than your place with the tray! You might want to google ingredients for the tray place! As for understaffed,... More

If you are coming to the Dells for an event at Just A Game Fieldhouse then you need to stop here. The prices are great, the bloody mary's are awesome. We had the fish fry on Friday night and it was very good, the next day we had burgers and they weren't anything extra special but good enough! Several TV's... More

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
