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. The service was GREAT and steak sandwich was amazing!! Our server (who also might have been one of the owners???) suggested... More

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

The Sand Bar rocks. The owners are great and treat everyone with respect. The bartenders are all really cool, and let's not forget about the food. There are no overpriced burgers here, plus the steak sandwich is fantastic. It is our favorite bar in the Dells by far.

Great local service off the "strip". The Tenderloin sandwich is the best we ever had anywhere. Owners were very outgoing and friendly.

I really can't think of anything negative to say. We thought food was good and the people who served us were very friendly. It is right across the street from the sports complex and was a nice change from grabbing concession stand food in between games.

Stopped here while traveling through town, based on the good reviews on TA. It certainly didn't meet my expectations after seeing so many top tier reviews. Tried the Fish Fry and their "famous" steak sandwich. Neither really had any flavor. They weren't bad, but I don't understand how anyone would think either are anything special. The service was friendly, but... More
