The Key Lime Chicken is one of the best dishes I have ever tasted! Sandy Hook has a laid back atmosphere with a picturesque view! We've been there over a half dozen times and have never been disappointed. It's where we bring friends & family when they come to visit and recently had our rehearsal dinner there!

Have visited Sandy Hook three different times and have never been disappointed. Enjoy watching fish and wildlife activity on the water. The food is always great as well as the service. Prices are very reasonable.

We dined with locals on a week night. Our foursome were warmly greeted by the owner and hostess and given a window table, all truly appreciated! Our server was not functioning well, taking orders out of seating order, despite our group being prepared to order. The table behind us and across from us were seated after us yet were served...

Thank you for taking time for the review. We do try to offer fresh local fish along every day. We also do have some items for those that look for a more price sensitive offering. We try to make both happy. I hope you do return to find our service is usually wonderful. Not sure what the circumstances were with... More

Their parking lot is always full. So it must be a good place. Not so. Have to say that I did read the comments before and figured out that the best choice would be fish or seafood. But we have been eating a lot of fish so needed a change. Ordered calamari which was battered and deep fried and came... More

I am so glad that your dad thought our burger was the best. They are hand made to order. I wish that your calamari would have been more to your liking. The veal was hand tenderized and breaded for the special. The onion rings are one of our most popular appetizers. Most people think they are donuts. I hope you... More

Went to Sandy Hook Fish and Rib on Pine Island and as usual the service was good and food superb. The blackened Grouper was outstanding. Generous portions. The conch chowder is very spicy just as I like it. A very good casual place to go.

This is our go to place for Florida ambience water front dining. The food is well prepared, the cracked conch is my preference. Wait for a window table its worth the time spent

My friend and I were vacationing in Matlacha and actually were trying to get to a different restaurant and ended up at Sandy Hook. Food is a little pricey but the tuna nachos were phenominal!!! We wanted to go back every night just to have them. Wow!

My wife and I have been eating here for over 15 years. We bring family and friends when they visit. Great family run restaurant with a menu that can satisfy anyone looking for a variety seafood or meat dishes prepared the way locals like them. One of the few places in SW you can get conch.

Interesting decor and ambience - a plethora of artifacts with that feeling of old Florida. Food is somewhat pricey for the quality. Tends to be busy, so plan for a wait seated by the entry or the bar. Doubtful that we will return.

Have been there twice, not sure why this place is so busy. The fish tacos don't use local fish but farmed tilapia. I am a Floridian and think any fish restaurant on the water should serve fresh fish. I think they have fish specials that use fresh fish, but the fresh fish of the day when I was there was... More

So sorry that you did not enjoy your experience here. We do try to use local fish and in fact many times the fish comes from my husband's boat. We try to offer various fresh fish including amberjack, cobia, red snapper, grouper and so on. We do change it around to allow different fish to be served. We originally had... More
