AN ENIGMA

What can I say. Service makes or breaks any establishment. Service definitely ruined our meal. Food was good but expensive. I had the house specialty which is Shrimp drenched in spicy butter. Hubs had the fried shrimp basket. He said shrimp was really good but the cheese grits were so-so. As for... read more

This was our first time at this restaurant and we were very impressed. The shrimp were delicious! Fish and chips were crispy and not dry. Cheese grits, slaw and fries were prepared to perfection. Our server, Taelor, was very polite and attentive and had great knowledge of the menu. We will definitely come back again.

Looked on TA and found this restaurant. Everything looked good and we made the trek to get there. When we got there I inquired about the oysters on the half shell as advertised on TA on their menu. Turned out all of the pricing was out of date and the oysters were twice what they advertised. Everything was priced wrong.... More

The oysters were good and the food was average except fish N chips and 2 for 1 drinks. Fish in my fish N chips were soggy and cold inside. If order this, make sure that the batter on fish is crispy all around. On 2 for 1 drinks, they must have used same amount of alcohol for one drink to... More

Had a very fun time at the Sandbar. The food is excellent with the emphasis on seafood. Very friendly staff. Not the best decor but the food and service more than make up for it. Funky in a good way.

I am a regular at Sandbar the seafood is fresh and the preparation is excellent. Great oyster bar, very fresh and cold! If you are a sports fan has huge screens located throughout the bar/restaurant. Great place to eat, and prices are competitive!

We were looking for a place for good food, and good seafood would be even better. We had heard good things about Sandbar, so we tried them for the first time, but it won't be the last. This place doesn't look like much on the outside, but the oyster shells in the parking lot was a good omen. After we... More

To start with we had fried pickles/jalapenos. They were delicious. Several of our party had the red snapper and it was great. Several had the "award" winning barbque and they loved it. All of the individuals who went with the barBQ stated that they would order it again. Will definitely go back

A whole bunch of us go to PCB fairly regularly - together or independently. It turns out that the group of us that went down after NYE, a group that had never traveled there together, all had one thing in common - we all believe Sandbar is the best seafood and seafood value near the beach. It is the favorite... More
