The view is second to none. The food is always good and freshly made. A nice variety of seafood and meat without over doing the selections. If you want something that isn't on the menu, just ask. The adult beverages are outstanding.

This is an average restaurant. They are located on the water which is nice. No booths, only tables. I ordered the rib-eye steak along with crab legs. I asked for medium rare and got well done. Also the crab legs were not fresh and difficult to get out of the shell. The key lime pie was good. If you are... More

We arrived on a recommendation for an early dinner; 4:30. We were seated at a table in an empty restaurant next to a couple with two very young, and ill mannered children. I asked to be moved slightly further down in order to be able to have a business conversation without interruption. The hostess shot me an "eat it" look,... More

I do apologize for your experience. I can assure you that we don't discriminate between locals and tourists when handing out earlybirds. I am not making excuses for anyone as it may have very well been me that forgot to hand out the earlybird. I will however address this all of this with the other hostesses. I hope that if... More

Service was good, food wasn't anything to write home about. My soda was great! Place needs a good scrubbing. We won't be back.

I wish we had come to this place sooner but ended up eating here on our last night in town. So glad we did. Everyone is super friendly, service is great, and food was the best we have had the entire week while on the island. I highly recommend.

I eat here a few times a month, the food is always good and the staff you just can't beat. The view over the water is perfect, lots of fish jumping and wildlife to see. I have never had a meal that I did not like. If something is not right they will make it right. Sandy Hook is a... More

This restaurant is in a fantastic location looking out over the bay watching the birds a fish jumping. The interior is quite eclectic with fishing related decor. We ate at approx. 7.30pm when the coloured lights and lamps were lit. Wish I'd had my camera. The food was delicious and plentiful - no room for dessert. Waiting staff were friendly... More

If you're looking for laid back atmosphere, good food and one heck of a view, Sandy Hook is the place to go. The drinks are awesome, the service is as it should be. The food is top notch.
