We have not really tried authentic German foods but wanted to try something different then we're use to. The reviews were good so we gave this place a shot. Glad we did! We stopped in right at opening and we're allowed to sit anywhere. Our waitress was friendly, though a bit inattentive. The buffet was not big like many places... More

After my first visit to Sandra's, I thought it was the closest to the dinners I had in Germany many years ago. I have returned to Sandra's several times and it JUST GETS BETTER !! I try a different meal each time I go and everything is as remembered if not better. The beer is authentic, desserts are fun and... More

I look forward coming to Sandra's while I'm in Florida. I love the schnitzel what else can I say. The German potato salad was also very good. I never had a bad meal there. I found the service fine, my husband is always asking for refills on his soda and they accommodate him with a smile.

With authentic German food, beer and owners this is a great environment! The food is always delicious and they have great lunch specials for the local businesses.

We had RESERVATIONS with a large group. The wait staff was either understaffed or not trained well enough for the crowd. Service was slow and it took forever to get our dinners. We were over charged for a few beers. When we confronted the waitress and owner about this they were adamant that they were correct. The waitress had to... More

Visited this German restaurant with a group of friends to celebrate Octoberfest. Their idea of "celebrating" was a gentleman playing the accordion. We ordered a pretzel for an appetizer, expecting something more than what you can purchase in the frozen food section of any grocery store but that was just what we got. We had 12 in our party and...

We had a great meal and a fun evening! Coming back next week. :-) We all had a different meal and everyone in the party was happy. I love this place. Never disappointed.

We stopped in to enjoy their Oktoberfest celebration. The food and atmosphere were great. Reminded me of Oktoberfest in Munich. We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more in Germany. The food was authentic and the apple strudel was very European, by that I mean it was not too sweet and you could taste the apples.

I stopped in at this restaurant for a quick lunch before my drive home. I enjoyed their Weisswurst sausage with a side of sauerkraut (served warm!), spaetzle (little homemade dumplings) and a delicious bavarian pretzel with spicy honey mustard for dipping. The food was filling and tasty! Unfortunately I didn't get there in time for the lunch buffet but I... More

Was there yesterday for Original Octoberfest Beer and the first keg was FREE BEER ! It was empty after a bit over 1 hour and we stood there until 7:00 as the food, the atmosphere and the folks were just awesome.
