Customer Testimonials


"Good home style country food . Fried cauliflower and wings were super crisp and very good. Has a bar next door with local brew on tap.

Excellent gem in the middle of the grain road."

-Erik S., Isabel, SD



"This bar/Cafe is not only a provider of excellent food, it is the social hub of the area! Owner/Operator Ryan Maher and Christi, his outstanding manager provide a warm, friendly atmosphere where folks are welcome and often tables get pushed together if newcomers to the are wander in to join in conversation with locals. This is the kind of place the hospitality industry would love to emulate, but it is because of the people that make it special, and they aren't just everywhere.

The food is very good. People come from an hour away to eat here. Saturday nights offer prime rib, and if you want some, come early because when it's gone, it's gone. Even if you come late and the prime rib is sold out, the steaks, burgers, and drinks are great. Although it is a bar and cafe, it really runs as a restaurant until 9 p.m. and families with children are commonly in attendance. Shoot a little pool, have great conversation with good people. It just doesn't get any better than this in these parts.

The only thing I wish they had is to put mashed potatoes on the regular menu, but I guess I can live with the half dozen other kinds of potatoes they offer!

Visit Sparky's - you'll be glad you did."

-Ken K., Davis, CA
