The Sand Bar & Grill got national attention in 2020 for opening up "Shanty Land" during the pandemic, in which guests were invited bring their own ice shanties to the Barry County bar's parking lot for service.

Owner Kim Campbell told Fox 17 at the time,

When we had to close everything down we noticed that people just started coming out here, having drinks, then it turned into them eating their to-go orders out here. So we thought, how can we make this into a winter lodge-type place, where people can actually get together again and have dinner out, without worrying about breaking the rules or being exposed to something.

Now the 2,792 square foot bar and restaurant is for sale.

Wood TV 8 reports that Dan and Kim Campbell bought the property in 2010 and redeveloped it into Sand Bar & Grill. Their realtor tells Wood TV 8, the Campbells have decided to retire and made their staff and customers aware of the sale prior to listing it.

According to the listing, the "notable staple and thriving icon" comes turnkey, "with everything included to keep this well-established business profitable and sustainable."

All the equipment, furniture, recipes, and even owner-provided training are included in the sale, plus an additional 30'x40' commercial building that's currently leased.

The Sand Bar and Grill's current menu includes nachos, chicken wings, sandwiches, wraps, salads, burgers, fried fish, pasta, steak, and more.

The listing notes,

The Sand Bar isn't just a restaurant. It's a community center. It's where people gather to make great memories and to make and maintain friendships. It's a fun place where everyone knows your name.

What do you think? Do you want to own Middleville's "Cheers"?

I LOVE the nautical decor, the ceiling, and the outdoor patio!
