We went to the Sand Bar expecting a bit more, based on other reviews. We walked in, wandered around for a while, wondering if we were to seat ourselves and be waited on, or if we were to order food ourselves at the bar. We finally asked a blonde woman (who had walked past us several times earlier, but ignored us) what we should do, and she said "whatever". Wow. We started to walk out, as I hate an attitude. Then a man from behind the bar saw us leaving and ran after us, offering to take our order. He was sincerely nice, so we stayed. We ordered the steak sandwich, the Nico burger, and fries. We didn't add toppings to the steak sandwich, so what came was a lonely piece of steak in a bun. But, the meat was tender, and the bun was of good quality. The Nico burger was larger, and tasty enough, but not over the top great. The fries were excellent, though. The "secret sauce" we didn't touch, as it just sits in a jar on the table, uncovered, open to the sneezes, coughs, etc. of everyone who sat at that table before us. With two sodas, the bill was about $23.00 plus tip. We really appreciated the younger guy who ended up waiting on us, and he did a great job. He explained he doesn't own the place, but is passionate about it. Because of him we stayed, but we won't be rushing back.

Truly sorry your visit to Sand Bar was not up to par. As I personally was working , I remember you and the day perfectly. Large tournament at JAG and completely full, people were standing and eating. My server was delivering trays of food to people waiting, was not being rude, was getting food to the customer while it's hot. I'm not making excuses and really am sorry we didn't make your visit a better one. Please, try us again, nothing bothers me more then people unhappy with Sand Bar.sandbardells.com. Thank You!
