There are so many outstanding restaurants in Charleston and Folly Beach. The Sandbar is not one of them. It has a privileged location; looks funky and laid back; and could be something very special. It's not. It took 2 hours from start to finish. First, no table was available .. although 3 sat empty and 2 booths were dirty and... More

The worst experience ever! I took my visiting family members there for seafood. It was awful. The food was salty and the steaks were paper thin and way over cooked. I was so embarrassed. The bartender was out of crown royal. Instead of telling us he tried to "make" some by mixing liquors together. Really?! It has such potential. It... More

This place has tons of potential and a great view. Go here for the ambiance and maybe a drink or dessert (but they don't always have dessert). Sit on the deck with live music surrounded by gorgeous scenery. Good service but whatever you do, DONT GO HERE TO EAT A MEAL!! Typical food service fare overcooked even though place was... More

Absolutely the worst seafood I have ever experienced...ordered biggest seafood platter, highest priced menu item...Both oysters and scallops were fine but the rest was garbage...hush puppies cooked nearly black, small creek shrimp appeared to be warmed over from the broil menu and re-heated, so tough could not...

Best I had ever eaten. My friend had seafood and loved it. I told 3 other friends that were going to be going to... More

I have been to many restaurants in my time, but this was TRULY, the worst. I ordered crab cakes, told they were lump crab, and they would be broiled. All filler, tasted fishey, just awful. It came with fries that were out of a bag, and they were cold and under cooked. I was with two friends, we left without... More

Oh well we order michelob ultras instead, no biggie. She brings us a basket of hushpuppies w this magic dip. They were so awesome! Best puppies i've ever had! We order all u... More

All you can eat shrimp for $15 and the shrimp was amazing! The portions were generous and delicious! They really know how to cook some fantastic food! The most amazing sunset as well! We will absolutely be back soon!

Our family enjoyed the restaurant in the 70 and 80's and then a few years ago we enjoyed it more. But now... There is a damp musty smell in the restaurant. No flounder on the menu only whiting fish. What is that about?? No soups or Caesar salad. The kids chicken was seasoned with too much...say white pepper. The cole... More
