Ate breakfast there twice during a weekend stay. We had omelettes (Western for me; cheese for my wife) that were outstanding. Coffee was good. Service was quick and friendly. It's a casual, homey little mom and pop diner so don't expect great ambience. However, both times we were there all the tables were full, and most folks seemed to be... More

We only had breakfast there. Food was decent. Nice "mom and pops" restaurant. Very casual. Would probably go back but wouldn't consider it a must do at the lake.

One of the few places in Deep Creek where you can have breakfast in the fall don't know if others places serve during the summer. Local spot for regulars.

My partner lives near Little Sandy's so we frequent the place for breakfast, lunch and or dinner. The food is better than average diner type food. All manner of breakfast type food all day. They serve specials that are priced well. We had buckwheat cakes during the Buckwheat Festival, and they had a special on a complete turkey dinner on... More

I love crispy bacon and Lil Sandy's does it up right!! The French toast was yummy, and a large amount of food. My husband is a huge fan of the buckwheat pancakes and was excited they were in season! (I never thought they were a seasonal thing) we will be back and will ordering extra bacon!

Wow, we went there all the time 20 years ago when we owned property on the lake. We went back when we visited this time and really we loved it again. The staff was so nice and the food was excellent. We went other places for breakfast and none compared to Little Sandy's Take the time to go there. It... More

We stopped by twice on our stay in DCL. It would be 3.5 stars if I could. The first visit was for breakfast. I tried the french toast which was good, big portions, other member tried the blueberry pancakes and they were good and big portion as well. We tried the sausage. It was overcooked on the grill and the... More
