Perfect place to eat

Perfect place to eat in your dinner, looking at the most wonderful sunset! The food was good and the service was quick. The portions were big and could be shared by a child and an adult

Great atmosphere but the food is not worth what you pay. Get some drinks and light food. at best the salad and deserts. avoid fish.

It's ok. If there were more alternatives on the island we would be going there first. Standard issue beach food, all with a couple of bucks added to price for the location.

If you are looking for a wonderful place to have a wedding the Sandbar is it! Patti helped us through each step and made the day perfect! The Sandbar honors their military with a discount on the food for the reception.

First Ashley was a great server!! Clam chowder was fantastic!! We each had a grouper dish. Sandwich and tacos. All was delicious. Beach atmosphere was nice even though it was a rainy day. We were actually there about 3 years ago with friends and returned during this visit.

My husband and I both had Grouper sandwiches. To me there was a lot of bun and not much grouper. Fries mediocre. The Chicken Anna Maria was a tiny portion for the price. Caesar salad didnt look very appetizing. $150 and our server was not very attentive or friendly! Disappointed. Atmosphere is very nice, however.
