The place looked like a fun place to have a meal. Old stuff all over the walls, even shoes on the ceiling. Went in at dinner time, only two cars in parking lot but was told immediately as we walked in door it would be a while before being able to be seated. That was fine, thought we would have... More

We had burgers and all you can eat fries that were delicious! I am a French fry snob and we tried 3 different types of fries and they were all super good! None of them were soggy! They were very busy so our waiter had to really hustle! We try and eat at a Sanford's whenever we are near one.

This was recommended by our hotel owner. The menu was huge and the food was good. Great selection of beer and drinks too. The antiques on the walls and ceiling were great to look at while waiting for our food. The only negative was that we were there a little later in the night and the waitresses started vacuuming while... More

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
