Strolling around downtown Fairhope on a Saturday afternoon and decided to get a piece of pie for a sugar fix. Mistake! Ordered a slice of chocolate creme and a slice of another creme pie--very average, little flavor--definitely not worth the calories. But the worst part was the service. A lady, acting like the owner, was loud and disruptive during our... More

On a nice day, get a table outside at Sandra's downtown. My go-to is the chicken salad melt. Never disappoints!

Mostly outside seating, with limited daytime hours, the salad & sandwich choices were very good and with very reasonable pricing. The desserts looked good but we passed on this visit. Very pleasant staff and quick service!

We've been having lunch at Sandra's for 20 years now during our 2 X per year vacations there during summer and winter. Their food is always freshly prepared, the staff is friendly and welcoming, and the food is delicious. The chicken salad is their specialty, but there is nothing bad on the menu. The desserts are to die for, but... More

Sandra's is a MUST visit darling experience in Fairhope. Right on the corner, you can sit outside in pleasant weather and enjoy the downtown area as well as great sandwiches and desserts. Whenever in Fairhope, I do try to eat here! It is ALWAYS good and NEVER disappointing. Do try the reuben! Yum.

We went here for lunch on Black Friday and found shrimp salad as a special today. There was so much shrimp and the dressing was home made. The shrimp were perfectly cooked. What a pleasant surprise.
