Can't wait to go back!

Our favorite bartender, A.J. from Bayou on the Beach quit and started working at The Sandbar. We wanted to see her again so we decided to check it out. We are glad we did. It is past Pier Park and a bit of a drive from Thomas Dr. (about 20 min. depending on traffic) but well worth the drive... read more

I ate at Sandbar this past April. We ordered food, but weren't told that they were out of one of the things we ordered until 25 minutes later. I didn't notice until a few days later that we were still charged for the food that we never received. I reported this to one of their Managers and gave them my... More

My party arrived hungry and early. We were seated immediately and Taylor served us accurately and quickly. We are on the Gulf to enjoy seafood and weren't disappointed. The Sandbar has an extensive menu ( everything I like, except a baked potato)

This place is within walking distance from the Beachcomber where we stay every summer for a week. This was our first year trying The Sandbar. It was excellent! The shrimp are out of this world. I also had the red snapper sandwich, which was just as good. We have learned to get to this place early, because it fills up... More

Wonderful place for seafood. My grandson, age 12, always orders shrimp and sits at the bar to talk to the oyster remover from the shells. Good food, good service. T shirts are available.

We drove a long way to try this restaurant. We were a bit skeptical when we pulled up, but a family member urged the Shrimp Royal. Two of us ordered the fish and, although it was delicious and fresh, the shrimp were the largest and tastiest I have ever had. The large portion was big enough to share. The shrimp... More

I ordered the barbecue (outstanding), my wife got the blackened grouper tacos (also super) and my kids got the baked oysters. How could one place do them all so good? Service was also great. The prices are truly beach prices, but we had a Daily Deal from the local newspaper (News Herald) and got a super deal!

My husband and I shared 1 pound of the Royal Reds. He ordered the low country boil for a side and I got hush puppies with cole slaw. We also... More
