I was here with my family for a birthday. Strand's seems to be very hit & miss with it's service and food, but I will say that there was enough 'hit' to go back to give it another chance. The Good: The main course meal. There were six of us eating, and everything was fabulous. We ate every last drop... More

Everything we order at Strands is always delicious! The service & ambience is some of the best in the valley. Love the live music. Try the house salad, Wiener schnitzel, tuna sashimi, and chocolate mouse. Everything is home made!

This restaurant is in a lovely old house. There's a lot of character here.. we received a very high level of Professional Service from our waiter and the food was absolutely wonderful. We ordered from a special three-course meal menu. We both opted for the goulash soup to start. We followed that with an absolutely mouth-watering sauerbraten served with red... More

I enjoyed the spätzle but not so much the snitzel.... More

This Restaurant is Amazing, words can't even do justice to explain it. The service was 10 out of 10, the waitress was always there and poured our wine before we could. The food was out of this world, so tasty and big servings. I had the stuffed chicken with crab and it was real crab meat, not that canned stuff.... More

Finished golf early and decided to try Strand's for an early dinner. We were there very soon after opening. Quick service for drinks and they were offering a local brew along with an extensive wine list. We ordered from the early bird menu. Soup, schnitzel and dessert. The meal was outstanding. Start to finish. So delicious. Even a fresh edible... More

this was our first experience at Strands. Words can't do justice to explain the evening. This old house has been restored to transport you into the past. The Decor, furniture, lighting, are perfect. The food was superb. The environment is Devine. Highly recommend it for a simply enjoyable meal and atmosphere.
