Visited for a second time for our anniversary with family! Our waitress, Leena was beyond wonderful. Food was delicious as usual. Request Leena, order the stuffed shrimp, and enjoy the view!

Delicious muscles, scrumptious salmon pate, and a delightful mozzarella salad. Friendly and helpful service, and what a view. Hard to beat, highly recommended

Was here a few weeks back right when the restaurant was about to close so we expected bad service, but our server Christian was outstanding made us feel like if we're at home. The food is great, service great overall a great experience. Would really recommend anyone to eat here.

On September 6, 2014, my wife and I were exploring the keys near Sarasota, Florida, when we discovered the Sandbar Restaurant by chance at lunch time. We were lucky to have done so. The setting for our meal was spectacular. Our table was on the beach that stretched into the Gulf of Mexico. The sky was blue, and the beach... More

Have dinner with my family while on vacation at AMI. Gorgeous dinner on the beach. Very reasonable priced menu. You find all the seafood you want on the menu. Watery drinks, ask for double shot. Parking is hard to find but if you drive around you"ll find it. Good service

Sitting on the terrace, sipping a margarita and watching the sand and the ocean ahead it paradise! So is the food at this restaurant -- I have had the salads and the seafood dishes and all have been expertly prepared. . The staff is friendly and courteous -- how about two waiters opening the doors to the terrace for you!... More

For a unforgettable view on the beach this place has it. You can actually sit at a table in the sand and get great food and service. The sunsets are spectacular as well, looking out over the Gulf to the west.

We went to The Sandbar while in Florida in August and we had a wonderful dinner. We wanted to sit outside to enjoy the sunset. Our waiter was very attentive and quick with service. It was incredibly hot but the staff did their best to make it comfortable - tilting umbrellas to give us shade, adjusting fans, etc. We would... More

Visited here after a bit of a let down on AMI pier. The lunchtime menu was gorgeous and I had stuffed Shrimp and rice, yummy. So reasonable in price, really good value, nice view, tasty food and friendly staff. What is not to like.
