“Back Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

If you want some place to go and feel like home and family try the Sand Bar. I hadn't been in for awhile and treated me just great. The food is still great and all the staff where outstanding.

“Been going to the Sand Bar for 25 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Great people own the place. Been stopping here since college. Any trips from Chicago to Minn, this is a regular stop. GREAT steak sandwiches. I have had nothing but here, but alcohol. If your nursing hang over, one of the best bloody mary you will ever have.

Thank you! The best compliment a restaurant can have is when customers/friends return and tell others they enjoyed your place. You've been returning and spreading the Sand Bar name for many years, thank you! We truly appreciate you!

“Slightly off the main drag”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Unless you wander the sidestreets or head over to the Amtrak train depot (itself worth a look because it's a beautiful, classic old station), the Sand Bar is off the regular tourism radar. We went last trip (to best take advantgae of the Great! 2-for-1 drink cards each member of our group had) and will go again on all future visits. Friendly, clunky, unpretentious, smalltown, folksy atmosphere with excellent prices (even without a 2-for-1) and none of the noise/crowdedness of the main drag during peak season. If it's primarily peopled by locals, they're friendly locals, and if it's mostly peopled by other visitors who stumbled upon it, they should feel as upbeat about this trip-from-a-trip as we did. I'd bad mouth some of the other Dells bars in more premium real estate to upsell the Sand Bar but: 1) that wouldn't be very constructive; and 2) I bet lots of their employees come here to drink.

“Fish fry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Great fish fry and very nice servers. I don't do bars but I do like to eat out and this place I would look forward to eating at.
