Close to the beach with several seafood choices. While the crab cakes weren't the best, they were pretty good. The hot bread, however, was outstanding. They had live entertainment with a piano player which was a nice touch. Enjoyed it.

We came here the night before Valentine's Day. It was really crowded because it was one of two places open after 7pm and this was the only place that served alcohol. So, we waited half hour to be seated. After that, we waited another 20...More

We love the Sand Dollar and go there often for a casual fun atmosphere and great food. The outdoor deck is really nice even in early spring- the indoor tables by the fire are great for cold foggy nights - the staff is always friendly...More
