My first time at Sandy's Pub and we enjoyed it! The service was slow to start but it ended excellently. I would recommend the nachos to share. The two bean chili was disappointing because it didn't have a hearty texture and too much chicken not enough beans. The brownie could have been heated up because it was cold and hard... More

Stopped here for a quick light dinner one night during our stay. Good selection of pub food, service was excellent and the vibe was friendly and lively.

My husband and I were staying at the Squaw Creek Resort, so Sandy's Pub was convenient for us, but it was also a very delicious decision. My husband got the pastrami sandwich with sweet potato fries - both were so good. Sweet potato fries are no good if you don't cook them right, and this place did it right -... More

We both enjoyed our food. I had the Ahi tuna salad which was excellent, and my wife had the chicken tortilla soup. Both were excellent. We were out on the on the patio, and since there were more people inside, our server forgot about us. I finally had to go inside and ask her to come back out for us.

We only ordered from there once while sunning by the pool. The turkey club was very good along with the french fries.

Everything we ordered was really salty and the service was really slow. This place seems like a better bar rather than a family restaurant.

Sandy's is located in the Resort at Squaw Creek. It features plenty of seating inside and out, and a nice friendly staff. The food is typical bar/pub food, with standard après-ski fare. They have a great happy hour with discounted beverages and food items. Just be aware that some of the discounted items are variations - for example, the happy... More

Thought I was going to get the same ol boring pub food, but was pleasantly surprised with the tasty food. We had a semi large group, 6 for lunch, 8 for dinner, and pretty much everything was fresh and well-prepared. The flavors were good. I had the strawberry arugula salad and the steak sandwich, sampled the nachos and bucket of... More

This is a casual cafe in the lower level of Resort at Squaw. We ordered arugula strawberry salad with prawns and calamari for adults to share. Burger for kids. Calamari was perfectly executed just lightly dusted in flower (not heavily breaded as you commonly see). Salad was very tasty as well. One comment: burger was over-papered especially for kid's palate.... More
