Good Food, Friendly Staff

We went to the Sandbar on a Sunday afternoon around 5;pm. We were promptly seated, and our orders were taken. Their drinks were reasonable. There were four of us and three had sandwiches, and one had prime rib dinner. All agreed the food and service was very good. I would surely go back to this... read more

It was late and we were hungry, so it was just satisfying. I had the shrimp and scallops, and for 18 bucks it was just ok; but the asparagus was cooked to perfection!

I love the Sandbar. It's my MUST in PCB... nothing fancy.. their prices and their food are top notch.. Never had a bad meal there. Never had a bad experience there. It's like coming home.. every time we go! Suitable for all ages, and all occasions..just one of those places.

We were not completely through the door where we were greeted by the bartender and Shelby who turned out to be our awesome waitress. She took the time to talk and listen and came back often to check up on things (that is sometimes rare elsewhere). Had great raw oysters, blackened scallops and shrimp, and royal red shrimps. We fought... More

The Sandbar is nothing special inside, "Sports Bar" with many TV screens,but their food and service is quite good. My wife had the BBQ ribs and raved about their flavor, and I had the grilled grouper and was quite happy. Great friendly service and great food, what more could you want? Highly recommend.

Wife was craving fresh oysters. Invited another couple and went to the Sandbar. Upon arrival we were greeted by the hostess who put us on the "list". Went to the bar and ordered beer on tap and wine. Chatted with folks at the bar and were seated sooner that expected. The waitress was prompt and friendly. As we arrived the... More

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 the service, the place was not busy and... 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
