You don't go there for the food it's the drinks! As long as you have the right bartender, not some young snotty collage girl! That works there. She makes week-drinks for $9.99 and when question her she denies her bartending skills!

We travel to eat at the Sand Bar each March while in Fl. I am delighted to report the dinner was a complete success. It was also to celebrate an anniversary. We had Debra as our waitress. She is wonderful. We had a table on the sand and enjoyed drinks, snacks and the dinner. We were not rushed and watched... More

Extremely casual beach bar/pub with nice views just ok. I have been here twice and leaving both times wondering why I went. I would say target audience families with small children or stop by for a cocktail after a day at the beach. The menu is small and very basic – standard Cape fare – plastic cups for drinks, food...

Decided to try this place for something to eat and drink. Our meal was sub par and the drinks were not very good. Attitude of staff was poor as well. Don't bother stopping.

Looking for a quick drink after a great day at West Dennis Beach. Stop at the Sand Bar for one & done. Good frozen drinks, cold beer and a raw bar on the weekends. Live bands at night- not the piano bar of years past. Give it a try!

I have never been to any of the places mentioned in your ad. I live in Harwich year around and for quick snack type restaurants go to a pizzeria and/or Hot Stove bar in Harwich Port. But I have been to the West Dennis beach many times. It is one of my favorites in Cape Cod: long and wide with... More

Great stop for a drink at the bar or on the patio. There is nothing fancy or pretentious here. Simple and local. No fancy or trendy updates here - simple and real. Staff is friendly and accommodating.

Love this place- great outdoor patio, tasty summer drinks and friendly staff. Really helped me get in the holiday spirit sitting on the patio by the water with a rum and coke!

Reasonable prices and good food. Comfortable environment. Just the place for "shrimp and grits." Friendly and attentive service from our waitress, Kiara. Great food from our cook in the kitchen, Josh K. We will definitely return.

Haven't been inside because I'm so pissed off about the band noise and am tired of calling Police, etc.
