We have gone here every year while we are visiting for the Sturgis Rally. It's usually always busy. Their menu is huge. Quite the variety which I like. If you get a steak, remember this isn't a steakhouse. Just saying. I admit through the years the service and quality have varied. I always wonder what these restaurants are like when... More

Our group of 4 adults visited this restaurant on Friday, August 5th, our first night hetefor the Rally. We experienced the WORST service ever. Our table was completely ignored for at least 10 minutes until my husband stood up and waved the waitress over. Quite unprofessional and rude service. Once we finally got our meals, we needed a knife, and... More

I've gone to this restaurant several times, once a year during the week before Bike Week in Sturgis. But I didn't go this year, due to my experience last year. I usually bring a group of people with me, and have usually had fun. Last year, I took my family and the service was TERRIBLE, the orders were mixed up,... More

Saturday night during Sturgis Rally week and the place was slammed. Poor service? No, the staff really hustled. Atmosphere was roadhouse kitsch and everyone was friendly. Fine dining? No; but the eats were great! I had the fried catfish with two large pieces of fish on a bed of rice; between the fish was a crawfish cream...fantastic. The fry bread... More

We had no problem finding the sign for the restaurant, but you have to wind back behind some other businesses to find Sanford's. The decor inside is really cool...kind of junk-yard-chic. The service was a little disorganized, with 3 different servers asking to seat us and then get our drink orders. We weren't sure if we were going to get... More

this is one of my favorite places go go for lunch when meeting friends. The menu is fun, the food always satisfies and though its out of the way, its well worth the effort.

The food and the atmosphere is awesome. When we got there the place was packed and there is a reason why. The service was good but it was a long time getting our food. That said it was great and we will go back

We had high expectations for the place but only one in six had food they thought was good. Steaks were hard and tough (asked for Med-Rare), fries were cold and little and HARD. All you can eat ribs were pretty good but $20. Good beer selection.
