Great sports bar. Had a great waitress. The beer list (at least 100 varieties) is reason alone to visit. Loved the old terrazzo floor. Roomy for an older type bar but not run down. Saved the best for last...The GREAT Steak sandwich. As good as the ones they made in the old location years ago. It's a must to top... More

We were at baseball tournament in the Dells. In a Sea of over priced junk, the Sand Bar was a welcome spot for lunch. It's a couple blocks off the main drag, therefore not a zoo. Found a place to park easily. 4 out 6 of us had the steak sandwich. They have a special home made sauce. It was... More

We were looking for a good Friday fish fry when in town on vacation. The hotel concierge led us to his place in the downtown of Wisconsin Dells. Great beer list and quality food at an economical price. If in the area again, we will be back.

Took a break from the basketball tournament to enjoy some great food. Atmosphere was friendly and the food was a great value. Didn't seem like a touristy place - check it out when you are in the Dells!

I stopped by Saturday night for a bite to eat. What a great time I ended up having. They have great food and the best bartenders in town. Jeremy and Tommy I believe were the most friendly wait staff I've seen in a while. They also had Karaoke going on which made for a great time. Definitely a must stop... More

February in Wisconsin and its 60 degrees maybe there is something to global warming. Having a drink outside on their big porch with friends was a great way to take a mid afternoon break. The service and drinks were very good

This is the place you go for reasonably priced drinks, beer, and food. It has a great atmosphere, attentive servers and ample seating. They don't jam the music at night till your ears bleed like the other places on the strip, and that is welcome for most of us.

The staff here was very friendly. Nice atmosphere. The food was very good. Only complaint would be paying $3 for a "basket" of fries which was the size of a small saucer plate.
