Sanford Lake Bar & Grill, Sanford MI

Sanford Lake Bar & Grill buildingNot far from TNT in Midland is a local favorite eatery called Sanford Lake Bar & Grill. The food is a few notches up from traditional bar food as they offer dinners complete with baked potato and salad bar.

Rick Fleming opening entrance door to Sanford Lake Bar & Grill, Sanford, MIThe night before the April, 2017 agility trial at TNT, I was joined for dinner with agility peeps Jackie Fleming, her husband (and trial photographer) Rick Fleming, and Nancy Brissette. Some popular favorites here are the prime rib and lobster bisque, although we all opted for other dinners or pizza. Several of us visited the salad bar, which had traditional salad toppings, as well as side salads and a few desserts. Everything was tasty, service was excellent, and the environment surprisingly quiet enough to enjoy good conversation despite the crowd.

TNT Dog Center in Midland, MI is my all-time favorite place to trial, although I have not visited every agility location yet so I’ll keep you posted. There’s magic in the air at that place. TNT’s owner, Lisa Lundahl, had the building specifically built for agility trials, along with spaces for both agility and obedience classes. Later, she added another building in back of the agility building for dock diving and canine water therapy. Although Midland Michigan Kennel club put on this trial, their isn’t much of a difference between other clubs sponsoring trials here, since the same staff usually run the trials. Same staff means familiarity, better organization, and continual improvement.
