Decent historical ocean view restaurant

We liked the food, our server, the view and the history of this place. It was not fancy, and we walked through the bar to get to the restaurant, but it was good.

My partner and I had a fabulous meal well presented with that touch of ocean air and sea side sounds. Our waiter was very kind and was a true professional. I will definitely be returning hopefully in the near future.

Sandbar is a lot like all the other dive bars you've been to except this one is on the beach. The floor sags to the back and to the front, its high in the middle. There is a pool table and a restaurant. We had a beer and left.

Stopped at the Sandbar for halibut and chips in a bucket and a beer. TV sets with sports on or sit upstairs and look out the windows at the beach. Enjoy your stop in and say hi to Deanie, she was a lot of fun serving us!

We discovered this little local bar/restaurant during our stay in Newport. It's located in Nye Beach, which is a very short walk, either on the beach or on Elizabeth Street headed north from any of the ocean hotels in Newport that are located on the north side of the Yaquina bay bridge. (We were at The Hallmark, and it was... More

The Lincoln City Kite Festival weekend was no exception.... 2lbs of steamers, micro brew on tap, great friends and we were happy campers! We always go in on the bar side, have not eaten from the restaurant side. Highly recommend for a fresh treat on... More
