April 1, 2023 – Campbellsport, Wi – A difficult announcement from Kevin and Laura Stautz as Sandpiper Inn on Lake Bernice is closing.
An announcement was posted to their social media page thanking customers for their support but recognizing they couldn’t keep up top-notch service without sufficient help.

The full announcement is below.
The Stautz family and our employees would like to thank everyone of our customers and friends who have supported us the past 5 plus years. We have seen and weathered many unusual and historical periods in the 5 past years. The Covid shut down, the supply chain interruptions, transportation issues and now the employment situation of not enough workers in the market willing to work.
The Sandpiper Inn & BBQ has never had a larger & better customer base in its history here, as we do now. All of us at the Sandpiper greatly appreciate your generosity!
However, we have found ourselves short staffed on many occasions which has forced us to be closed occasionally because of lack of staff. Also, the irregular availability of certain items on a fairly consistent basis has become a problem.
So, we have decided end our time at the Sandpiper Inn & BBQ. We have always tried to give outstanding customer service along with outstanding dinners.
I would like to acknowledge our AWESOME STAFF who have unselfishly helped by picking up other shifts and filling in when needed. Please remember, they all have other jobs, so it’s been tough on them also. Their dedication will never be forgotten!
We have been so blessed with the opportunity to make so many new friends and being able to see our old friends on a more consistent basis because of our time at the Sandpiper Inn & BBQ.
We will never forget you!
Our new journey will begin in mid-May, early June as we start our fleet of food trucks. We will be serving several of the same items we served at the Sandpiper in addition of several new items.
When our food truck Facebook page is up and running we will have a complete schedule with locations we will be at as well as times we will be there. You will also have an opportunity to receive our locations weekly by signing up.
Again, it has been an honor and a privilege to be able to serve everyone with a servers heart! Thank from the bottom of hearts!!!
Kevin & Laura Stautz and family and all of our wonderful employees!
