We chose to book our after wedding lunch here. We not only had family but friends as well. The service was incredible, the food was amazing, the waiters were hands down the most detail oriented people we have ever dealt with and it was true...breeze having these folks involved with our big day. We were SOOOOOO pleased and happy that we had the quality of service that we did and will be going back for not only food but a stay at opel sands!More

The location and view of the ocean are top notch. It’s such a relaxing spot to unwind and enjoy the ocean. I would imagine at sunset it would be perfect. The food was also good, a small menu but everything was tasty. Our only issue...was the service. We were sat after being on a 30 min wait and no one greeted our table for 20 min. It was a weird situation, because there were servers helping tables all around us. We finally had to go to the host stand to find out if we had a server. If the he service would have been decent, I would have scored a 5.More

Spent the afternoon hanging out here having drinks, appetizers and a late lunch. Andrew R provided great service and has a great attitude! We had the tempura shrimp appetizer and the only complaint was that there weren't more! (It comes with 3 shrimp.) The sauce...was amazing! One of us got the grouper sandwich which was cooked perfectly and another had the fish tacos. Excellent food and drinks! Great atmosphere for a lazy Sunday afternoon hanging out overlooking the water!More

We had a delicious lunch here and every precaution is being taken to keep guests safe and for them to feel comfortable. My husband and daughter had fish tacos, and I had the grouper sandwich.

Fun in the Sun! Precious waitstaff, Alana W., took care of us for lunch. She kept checking on my husband and I, keeping our drinks refreshed and answering any questions we had about the property and the local area. We both had drinks and Caesar...Salads. You can’t beat the view!More

We visited the Sand Bar with the intention of only getting a drink until we we’re going to head out for dinner at another restaurant but we then ended up getting a the fish tacos as a snack and our server Andrew was phenomenal so...we decided to forgo our original plans and just stay there. Andrew was attentive, on point, friendly and made our dinner a great experience. The food was exceptional. We had the fish tacos, grouper sandwich and burger. The drinks were delicious and the view was super !!! Thanks Andrew for making our night great ! We are going there again tonight !!!More

Sand Bar has amazing food and drinks. I had the blackened fish sandwich with fries and grilled shrimp. I also had Killer Colada and Blue Hawaiian. My server Beckah was amazing and friendly. I did have to wait 30 minutes to be greeted but she...was able to turn the negative into a positive. When I go back I have to be seated in her area. I highly recommend Sand Bar.More

We spent the afternoon on the beach & decided to get refreshments at The Sandbar. We were tired & thirsty. We were welcomed by your staff and seated in Andrew P's section. He was fabulous. We had two young children with us. He didn't miss...a beat making sure they were comfortable & happy. My daughter and son in law enjoyed their drinks & appetizers. Means a lot when you see someone working hard to make a difference. THANK YOU ANDREW P!!!😊👍More
