You will spend your hard earn money on frozen pre packed food. This place is only good for drinks that's it. If you are expecting to have a nice dinner do not go there

There were six of us celebrating Valentine's Day. The food was authentic German dishes.....tasty sauerkraut, red cabbage, potato pancakes, roasted pork, bratwurst, spaetzle and beer. Apple strudel for dessert! Great service! Eat here if you are near Punta Gorda.

I reviewed Sandra's last in 2013 and it is still wonderful. Visited last with another couple and we all had a great meal and service, plus Sandra has added music--a singer on accordion. I had the Schwein Haux (pork hock) and others had the Bratwurst; Zürcher Geschnetzeltes (Tender beef tips cooked in our delicious homemade onion-mushroom crème sauce); Wiener Schnitzel;... More

Whenever people come to visit us, we take them to our favorite new restaurant. The food is superb, the service was attentive, the beer was awesome and we were lucky enough to have live music the Saturday night that we came in. My guests wanted to come back again.

Kind of a strange atmosphere. I felt like I was in a David Lynch movie. There was an accordion player and a woman at a table, who was having dinner with others, started singing. Her voice was very nice, it was just different. I had the platter, my favorite on it was the potato pancakes, the schnitzel was good also.... More

Enjoyed a very authentic German dinner at Sandra's in Punta Gorda, Florida, last night with friends. We sure often under-rate this country's delicious cuisine - such a nice change of pace from the usual Italian, Chinese or American fare - we will absolutely return. Both men ordered the Friday night special - pork hocks - and said they were SO... More

My husband had the sauerbraten and I had the Wiener schnitzel. Both very good. He loved the German potato salad and we both liked the red cabbage.

Four of us ate at Sandra's last night for the first time. We wanted some good German food, and we got it. The men had the pork hocks, my friend had the schnitzel cordon bleu and I had the Schweinebraten (pork roast and gravy). All was tender and tasty. We had red cabbage, sauerkraut and potato pancakes for sides. Delicious.... More

We have not really tried authentic German foods but wanted to try something different then we're use to. The reviews were good so we gave this place a shot. Glad we did! We stopped in right at opening and we're allowed to sit anywhere. Our waitress was friendly, though a bit inattentive. The buffet was not big like many places... More
