The food was good service was something else we gave the guy $100.00 on a $16 dollar bill and he gave us $74 back. Now my math 100-16 is 84 we said something to the server and he went and got the ten without an argument. Which tells me he knew what he did

Food was great, it did however take an hour to get to us. This was surprising since you appear to be at only 50% capacity and we arrived early (4 pm) to avoid the rush. The server was good it was just the kitchen.
Our table had 2 prime ribs, one ravioli, and a cobb salad.

Sandhill Cafe is not just for those using the Casino. This is also a great place for lunch or dinner for those of us who work in the area. The food is good and the service even better.

Our waitress Lindsey is great. We normally get her as a server every Tuesday when we
go on Tuesday. She is very friendly and follows up frequently after food is delivered.

Not a good experience. The waitress was not knowledgeable about the menu. She did not listen when the order was placed, and tried to tell me that nachos always have beef on them even if there are ordered at chicken nachos when they came out. She was argumentative instead of listening.

Everything food wise was good, but it took over 30 minutes to get our food
The restaurant didn't even look that busy for us to have to wait that long!

Service was extremely slow and I can’t stress this enough. Very few items to choose from on menu. There were no sides to pick for breakfast. Plenty of empty tables that were well 6 feet apart but took forever to get seated.

The wait is so slow and while your waiting no one acknowledges you. I think that was the worst part for me

We always have good meals at Sand Lake. Our experience this time was good good but poor service. We waited 35-40 minutes for our food. Our waiter disappeared after serving us our drinks until we had finished our meals.

My wife and I shared the prime rib 16 oz which seemed to be rather chewy and not as tender as i have had in the past... (frankly disappointing)

It took 45 minutes to get the food. It was cold. Waitress was just blah. Took her 20 minutes to notice we needed more coffee. Took her another 20 minutes to get it to us. It was absolutely freezing in there.

Great food and good service. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. We had to wait a while for our food and our check at the end of our dinner, but otherwise we were very pleased overall.

Food was good ! Server was very nice. I made reservations at 4 pm on Saturday for 8:30 pm I arrived at 8:22pm to tell them we were there and they said oh sorry you still have 28 minutes left... not sure why? Then it was 9:15pm and we still were not called back so I went up there and they told me oops you got removed by accident. No I’m sorry no free appetizers or anything . Just very poor service if you ask me. I won’t be back.

We use come there all the time before COVID, just came on Saturday and it was just okay. Our food was not very warm and the toast was quite hard. Not the same as it was before kind of disappointed.

We have dined at your restaurant several times. We both ordered the open face prime rib. The meat and potatoes were good but the gravy stayed with us all day and night. And for the price a side salad wasn't included. Thought of ordering the wedge salad but was off of the menu? There was also some very annoying flies in the restaurant!
