I love finding places close to home that I can regularly go and always enjoy the food, not just on a special occasion but just because it's a Tuesday. The Sandbar has the liveliest bunch that work behind the bar and keep conversations flowing while you watch the big screen or the fellow shucking oysters alongside the bartender. My absolute... More

My wife and I went to Sandbar on a visit to PCB. I went specifically because of the ratings for Tripadvisor. The place is small, but worth the trip. I got the fried platter and the food was very fresh and there was a lot of it, especially fried clams. The one complaint is that they didn't allow me to... More

First time here. Value for the dollar was extremely poor. Very small portions. Had to keep asking for sides. Waiter gave friendly but,fake service. After the payment and criticism of the small portions and my youngest sons uncooked meal the waiter told me not to tip him. Spoke to one of the two owners and told him of our experience... More

Tonight was the worse meal I have had in PCB in a long time! I have condos for rent on the beach but would not recommend this restaurant for my tenants. By the way, I am now local after retiring to the beach. Go to Dustys, Saltwater Grill, The Terrace, Firefly! Too many other good restaurants!

There are a ton of restaurants in Panama City with a lot better food and service. Portions were small, food was below average for the price and the service was awful. Go somewhere else!

This place was recommended to us by a local so we thought we would give it a shot. Prior to going we checked out the menu (decent variety of oysters and shrimp as well as fried seafood baskets, steak and BBQ ribs/pulled pork, etc.). We also read some reviews with a couple of negative comments statements like it "stunk like... More

We've been coming to pcb for over a decade now, but tonight was our first time trying Sandbar and I'm sorry we hadn't tried it sooner! The absolute best food around and service that will exceed all expectations. The scallops are to die for, hush puppies delicious, and shrimp is superb! Even the pasta and baked beans were good. Sandbar... More

We were looking for fried scallops but found so much more. From the house made chips smothered with hot wing sauce and melted blue cheese to the oyster po' boy...all the food served was delicious. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for great food in a kid friendly atmosphere.

Excellent food and service! We had the buffalo chips, blackened snapper sandwich, and the Commander Dave's shrimp. Everything was good, the shrimp was awesome! We will definitely return, maybe even this week!
