“We enjoyed Sand Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The coconut shrimp appetizer was amazing, as was the bread. The rest of our meal was quite good. Nice service, no pretense, comfortable dining spot.

“brand new excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Just taken over be new owners from the previous Stone Crab, great simple menue selections and not overpriced, very pleasant service. They do take reservations, not a large space but very open and nice comfortable bar. I had the shrimp scampi, 8 very tasty large shrimp over a bed of linguine, not too oily but seasoned just right. Friend had scallops over a special rice, excellent, salads included, very fresh.

“First visit, new restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Everything about this place says "I can't wait to try it again". We had good food, good service, and a pleasant atmosphere. The open kitchen is a nice touch.

Our waitress, Rene, was a delight.
