Having a meal or a drink at The Baja is a longstanding Sandbridge tradition in our family, and while it offers casual classics such as burgers and pizza (both very good), we tend to try their non-menu seafood specials and are never disappointed. I had a Caribbean influenced jerk-flavored tuna dish with lime cilantro rice and black bean and corn... More

Located at the end of Sandbridge beach, this place can get wild. Food is just ok, go here for the drink specials and summer party atmosphere. Beach volleyball and corn hole predominate with a mixed crowd later when the band's start playing. Recently refurbished and bar is bigger with better sound system.

Calamari is awesome! She crab soup is tasty, pizza is terrific, fish tacos yummy. The seafood combo with linguini was so-so, but rest of food was really good.

We went to this restaurant hoping to get some lunch. When we got there (around 12pm), we were immediately seated, which was nice. We ordered a pizza and waited. And waited. After about 30 minutes of waiting, the waitress came out and said there was a problem with the pizza oven but they were trying to fix it. She didn't... More

We are staying in Sandbridge for the week and really wanted to try this restaurant. It had a very limited menu with high prices, My husband after asking about the lump crabcakes was not happy, there was lump crabmeat but mostly backfin and claw. They were loaded with old bay and some other spice. For the person who said they... More

This is a small restaurant with excellent food. My husband had the fried crab cakes and he said they were the best he has ever had hardly any filler and didn't know how they kept the from falling apart. He has eaten a lot of them to know what he is talking about. On weekends during peak season they even... More

We live in the area but had never been to Baja until recently given how far down Sandbridge it is. That said, it's become one of our new go-to restaurants. We love sitting on the outdoor patio as it has a beautiful view of the bay and a big grassy area that our son can run around in while we... More

When you vacation in this area of town you will find that there is not much around you except vacation homes. No gas stations, no restaurants, no beach shops....just ocean and sand. We were overwhelmed with excitement when we discovered the Baja Restaurant was within walking distance from our stay. All 15 of us packed it up and walked to... More

We live local, but hadn't been here in years, and it has had lovely refurbishment with beautiful ocean-themed artwork. My husband had broiled crabcakes, and girlfriend had fried crabcakes and they both raved they were full of crab with very little filler, very good, and the sides of french fries and herbed rice were tasty. The kitchen was very accommodating... More
