“Waited almost 2 hours for our food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Went to get some supper with family, so we called ahead and needed seating for 8. We were seated right away when we got there and it was not real busy for a Saturday, we got there around 6:30. Waiter came by and got our drink order and then later we ordered our food. Menu is extensive with lots of options, salads, apps, burgers, sandwiches, cajun you name it and they probably have something your craving. Our waiter was gone for long extended amounts of time and we had 3 children with us who were very hungry. I then noticed that most of the people who were sitting when we arrived were still not eating so I started keeping track and the food came out very slow. About an hour into it we asked our waiter for some crackers and peanuts for the kids and to check on our food. he apologized and said it would be out soon. Another 30 minutes went by before the waiter came back and said that they had lost our order and it was being made ASAP. He apologized again and said we would not be charged for the kids meals and get a discount. It's to bad that on all the tables and the big sign by the door said "all kids eat free"! We will not be back to this one.

“Terrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

We have enjoyed Sanford's for a long time. But each time we go the service gets worse and worse. We were one if five tables in the dining room, yet it took 30 minutes to have our order taken, and another 20 minutes to get our order. Then the order was wrong, and when our bill came, it was also wrong.

“Nice place for an afternoon get together”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

When I visit my cousin it is fun to come here and get togther with her friends. Some days they make a really good mai tai drink also. The place is very different just to go to. The service can be hit or miss but we always have a great time.

“big salads”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

Service was poor, food was just ok, the salad was huge though. In walking distance to plenty of hotels which makes it nice but try somewhere else.

“Fooled Once not twice”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2010

Eating here for secong time, never again. When askd f garlic mashed potatires was all they had, the waiter said, "yea...they come in a box." Then my gf ordered a shrimp scampi pasta dish. They brought it out with fired shrimp. When confronted the waiter said "yea, we ran out of the the scampi shrimp and thought we could sneak this by you" When asked about it he didnt care to do anything about it. Too bad...lost another customer....
