After a long day of driving we went to this restaurant near our hotel because it looked interesting (we look for good atmosphere). The atmosphere was great, but.... We were there on a Tuesday evening and they weren't very busy. It took an unusually long time to seat the party of 3 in front of us, however we were then... More

Our family of four stopped here over 4th of July weekend for a late lunch. Upbeat music, awesome decor/atmosphere, but beyond the greeter it left little to be desired. Food was ok but it didn't even matter after our waiter managed to suck every bit of fun/excitement out of our visit. He lacked personality, enthusiasm, and motivation. It was obvious... More

Drove into Dickinson after a 12 hour day of driving and walked over to Sanfords for dinner. We both had the fried catfish with creole crawfish cream sauce and black eyed peas. Fantastic! Plus topped it off with a local brew. Huge menu with lots of choices but we focused on the more cajun-like food as it seems to be... More

We didn't get into Dickinson until around 9pm. We decided to try Sanfords. We were seated right away, but we were seated in a room with a rowdy groups of adults who had been drinking for awhile. The food was okay at best.

Service left a lot to be desired. Food was good. Bread was fantastic. Prices were pretty high and you had to figure out they were written out after description of food

The service was awful. Our steaks and baked potatoes where cold. Never go there its awful!!!!!! The menus where sticky and so was the table. They need to do a lot of cleaning and get some good cooks. We cant believe they stay in business with the poor service and horrible food. We ordered our streaks medium rare and they... More

My daughter and I ate here after our hotel suggested it over Applebee's. They were out of potato wedges. They could not modify the deep fried sandwich we wanted because they are "premade" already. We settled on a club type sandwich with fries and shared it. Definitely enough for 2! We had deep fried oreo's for dessert and they were... More

I believe everything comes frozen. Too many menu items. How can you possibly put two burgers on at the same time and one be over cooked and dry and the other be medium rare and dry. We both ordered #2 (cheeseburger) and got #3 (bacon cheeseburger) I'm glad we don't have these places in Kentucky… Oh yeah they did give... More

Cool, garage sale decor that assaults the senses in a fun way. Slow, disinterested service and it was not busy at all. When I go somewhere for a $13 hamburger I expect wait staff to at least feign interest in their patrons. I couldn't order their "famous onion ring brick" app because they were low on onions and I was... More
