Good place to eat

It sits on the corner and you can watch the passing parade, food is good with great fish and chips and an ice cream bar.

My wife and I always buy fish and chips from the Sandbar, I must say they do a pack which is great value and their food is always fresh.

Worst service when we tried to order here for a child with an egg allergy and were told that there was nothing on the menu without egg. After asking if it was possible to get a toasted cheese sandwich which was on the menu until 5pm (we tried to order at 5:30), the staff told us the kitchen was too... More

We had breakfast here with 6 of our friends. On arrival we made up a table for 8 which seemed to upset the young girl who was serving. She was very snooty with us for the first 10'minutes. After that she seemed to settle down. The food was very good. My wife had the corn fritters with avo & bacon... More

As the reviews stated it doesn't look like much looking in but the food was devine. We were greeted by one of the owners and he was very friendlya accommodating when we wanted to... More

We did takeaway: $48 for a family pack. 4x Fish Chips Salad 1.5L Drink The quantity of food could probably feed more like 6 people. Chips were good and cooked perfectly. The fish (we requested crumbed) is cut and cooked in strips. It was so overcooked that you could not taste the flavour of the fish and biting into it... More
