We got into town late on Thursday evening and hadn’t eaten dinner. Everything was already closed, but a local gentleman recommended Sand Bar. Thank goodness he did ... it’s a little off of the beaten path so we never would’ve found it by ourselves. Excellent...More

The name tells you a lot about the atmosphere of the bar. Cute beachy decor. Beer was served in frosty glasses which is a plus for us! Regular burgers are served wrapped in paper. Food was just ok, but the atmosphere made up for it....More

1943 building with a lot of charm. Friendly atmosphere and great service. Quite place for an adult beverage. Food menu is excellent. Half naked cheese curds are a must

This place hosts Karoeke on weekends which creates much fun. The bartenders treat all very well which isn't seen much in this town. The atmosphere is homey and makes you feel like a local.

Our first time here. Very friendly staff. I had the cod perch combo and my husband had the combo platter, which came with cod perch and shrimp. There was a choice of fries or roasted little potatoes. Reasonable prices !!!

Tried their fish fry. Service was a bit slow and not super pleasant. Food arrived quickly. The food was hot, tasty, and plentiful. I wouldn't say the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome...but they sure doted on their regulars.

Our family of five had lunch here on our way out of the Wisconsin Dells. What a fantastic find! Joe, the owner, was so hospitable and fun and we were comfortable immediately with the outdoor seating - a beautiful day. He put up two umbrellas...More
