Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Their schnitzel dinner will take you on a imaginary cruise down the Rhine river. SoTender and moist, you can cut the schnitzle with your fork. Finish with Apple Strudel that must be homeade to capture taste buds; so flavorful.

“Real German”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We went to Sandra's the week before Christmas with a large group and were generally very pleased. I had salmon medium rare, my benchmark dish, and it was prepared perfectly. And the sauerkraut, which seems to combine the onions from french onion soup with cabbage, was divine! I'd go back for that alone. Bill ordered a pork dish that was, sadly, basically like Spam. Not great.

“Try something new - Elsasser Flammkuchen (Tarte Flambe')”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The menu offers lots of choices in each course, we chose the above thin crust with sour cream, bacon and onions for our appetizer - it was excellent, definitely see if I can recreate this in my kitchen. They soup was Bloody Mary- little spicy, the Schnitzel was very good, hubby had pan fried potatoes and enjoyed them, I tried the potato pancakes and was disappointed, seemed to me they were made of potato flour with egg and milk and not cooked long enough - tasted like raw flour. The apple Strudel was very delicious served with whipped cream and ice cream. Good value for the price, they only have beer and wine so have a cocktail before you go.

“Varied Menu but the Service is not Acceptable”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We have been to Sandra's on at least three occasions and each time the service has been slow and very un-attentive!!

The menu has a variety of European selections and the food is acceptable, but not impressive. So, it is a restaurant that we feel would do much better if the service improved.

“Great European/German Food”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We went there for dinner about 4 weeks ago, based on Tripadvisor reviews. Overall, excellent. We went with a n Irish couple who had lived in Germany for 5 years and told us the food was very comparable to good German restaurants over there. They were more than impressed. We had the Schweinebraten (German pork roast), German Bratwurst Dinner and Hungarian Goulash. All very good. And the service were very way above average. My wife ordered a wine by mistake, (her fault) and they still insisted in replacing with a glas of what she really wanted, no charge. This will be the first restaurant we go to when we come back. And finally, the prices are absurdly low for the quality.
