Good food and great water view

We went for dinner and was surprised that we were seated right away and by the window looking out over Matlacha Pass. Salmon was a very generous piece and tasty. Fish tacos were also good and spicy. Chocolate cake was really good. I would definitely go back.

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!!

We had dinner here recently. The food is great. I had the frog legs and the portion was generous and delicious. The water view was beautiful.

Loved our burgers, fried fresh grouper, and ribs. There was a rainbow over the water during our meal. The wildlife is so interesting. Ron our waiter is a local and gave great advice. Locals like to sit at the bar. Very friendly bartender. We ordered bottled water since the local water has a funny taste. That's the only suggestion I... More

People venture out to Sandy Hook from North Fort Myers as well as South Fort Myers especially for the Seafood most often. It is a main stay for many of the residence of Pine Island and Matlacha as well.

This restaurant has very good service and good typical florida fare. Love the view from the restaurant looking South! It also has a full bar which not many of the restaurants in this area have.
