Great location right on the sandy beach of the Gulf. Very busy, noisy and crowded. We wound up getting drinks and appetizer and heading to another place. This is all about location, location, location.

Fab Seafood (mainly) restaurant at the end of Pine Street. Lots of outdoor tables for watching the fabulous sunset, but advisable to book at the weekends or in season. Indoors is nicely air conditioned as well. The staff are all very friendly and there is valet parking available should you need it. The food is excellent and well presented. Too... More

This is the best restaurant on Anna Maria Island for folks who are looking for an on the beach dining experience. And you can eat literally on the beach with your feet in the sand watching a gorgeous sunset. It can be a little on the pricey side but definitely worth it for a special experience.

And while you're at it, guess what time the sun will set and win a prize! Beautiful view, the best oysters in the area (all their food--nice variety--is very delicious), nice restrooms, the colossal shrimp are just that--ginormous--biggest ever. Right on the beach with nearby parking. Prompt service... If you want it, otherwise it's 'at-your-desired-pace' dining.

We eat here all the time when we have guests. It's the perfect spot for dinner on the beach. The view is awesome and the new decor here is excellent. Looks great and the foo foo drinks are delicious.

I like to bring guests from out of town here. For two of us have never had a problem getting a spot on the rooftop, even without a reservation. Last time I was here the waitress didn't come to check on us as often as I would have liked, but otherwise was fine. I like the grilled squid.

Our waiter was very personable, attentive, and efficient. His menu suggestions were excellent. There were four of us and all of us had excellent meals. The sunset was exceptional.

This restaurant is THE place to go to watch the sun set into the Gulf, enjoy great food and drinks, and be served by friendly staff. Patrick, the Manager, is a fantastic guy who knows how to take care of us travelers! Ask for Karen as your waitress. You won't be disappointed. The attached picture doesn't do the justice of...

Description
The Sandbar, at the north end of Anna Maria Island, has for decades been a favorite for locals and a great place to impress out of town guests. Enjoy our inside dining room or relax before an unforgettable sunset on the Gulffront deck. Sink your toes in the sand while enjoying a signature Pina Colada, the freshest seafood the area offers and farm fresh produce from our own farm. The Sandbar is an unmatched setting for any special occasion, especially weddings.
