“You get no bread with one meat ball.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

My wife and I went this past Saturday to see Rock King perform. I was a bit misguided because I thought that the Sand Bar was in the Lighthouse Inn, which it is not. If you look at the addresses, this will become painfully clear. That is my rookie mistake.

We went at around 20:30, and about a little under half of the tables around the piano were used by patrons. The bar itself was mostly empty. The inside of the Sand Bar is quaint, and exactly what I would expect of a cape bar: Plank wood floors, whale hunting paintings, port and starboard lights. Drinks are a bit expensive from a central Wisconsin point of view, but everything is more expensive while on vacation.

The staff was rather polite and quick with new drinks, water, or popcorn for the show. We were also advised of the breakfast that they have on Sunday, which seems to be a big hit (we were not able to attend).

There was a $2 cover for entertainment, of which we were not charged. We did make up for it with our quantity of drinks. If you do go, please try to go on Saturday night for Rock King. He is an acquired taste, but will make for an unforgettable night.

“best breakfast on the cape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2007

The Sand Bar is a family-run establishment just shy of the Lighthouse Inn in West Dennis, serving breakfast and open as a bar in the evenings. A quaint Cape Cod decor, friendly and polite waitstaff, and fresh food cooked to order within eyeshot make this one a keeper. Wear your bathing suit to breakfast, hit the beach, and come back at night for a few drinks in the friendliest bar on the cape! The Mudslides are to die for!
