My friends and I were looking for a joint to watch the Packer Game while in the area. The Sand Bar has a good beer special and endless wings for 10 dollars for game day. Free shots served at touchdowns. There were some fun guys working behind the bar. When they left, we felt a bit under served by the... More

We decided to go bar hopping in the Dells for my birthday and on the way stopped at The Sand Bar. We ended up staying the rest of the night. The bartender, Tommy, was incredible. Very friendly, easy to talk to and an all already great guy! He was quick for refills and helpful when deciding what to drink. When... More

We stopped here for a fast drink or two and maybe an appitizer. The service was friendly. The young gal behind the bar was awesome. The beer selection at this place was amazing. I think they had almost 100 some beers. I will be stopping back just for that! Food smelt amazing. We only ended up getting a few appitizers.... More

If you like a great selection of beer, this is the place to go. There were over 100 beers to choose from. The owner served us and he was very knowledgable about the selections, in addition to being very friendly and attentive. Great wings that are made in a slow roaster, giving them a unique flavor. Would highly recommend this... More

First off I love that they allow dogs on the deck. We brought our lab mix and all the employees and a couple of patrons all had to come see our dog Abby. We ordered our food and I had a brat and my other half had a ham and cheese, and cheese curds on the side for both of... More

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.
