Good food, nice view

We haven't been here in a while and decided to swing in for an early dinner. The Prime Rib was delicious!! Love the decor of the place and the view is great.

The view was great and our wait staff was very friendly. The food was alright and the price of it didn't help. The restaurant wasn't very busy and it seemed to take long to get our food. I would recommend the restaurant to someone, but I feel like you'd get a better deal somewhere else.

I had the pleasure of dining here on my last day on Pine Island. You can tell the restaurant is a labor of love, with some of those labors including the carving of the totem poles outside of the doorway. Its eclectic inside but worth a couple of pictures, and its fun to just look around while eating! The best... More

We have a place in Pine Island & try to eat here as often as possible. The cracked conch & Key Lime Chicken are my favorites.

We were looking for a nice place to eat rather than bar food and fries. Sandy Hook was within walking distance from where we were staying in Matlacha. The food was fresh and the view was amazing. The family has collected lots of items of the years and the restaurant was full of them. Staff was extremely helpful and polite.

Typical fisherman town decor and atmosphere. The staff was friendly. The food was plentiful and best of all FRESH!! The bread was out of control, my shrimp and grouper were literally right out of the gulf. Living in Florida I have visited many waterside restaurants and you'd be surprised how many serve Frozen seafood!! Two thumbs up for Sandy Hook!!
