This establishment is located on Pine Island overlooking the water, as many restaurants in the area. They have a varied menu with good service. (We had a trainee accompanying the regular waitress which made for a lively and fun service experience!) The food is very good. We had lunch at 12pm on a Sunday. There was no wait for a... More

I had tilapia, scallops and shrimps, cooked very well and presented well. Staff we responsive to our needs, (even the wobbly table was fixed quickly) and the atmosphere, as it was... More

This is a great local restaurant run by a local family who care about your experience with them. The view is beautiful and the food even better. Try the conch it's delicious. Don't leave with the key lime pie in your belly! Enjoy the experience!

This was our first time eating at the Sandy Hook Fish and Rib House. The food was excellent! We had calamari as a starter that was excellent. Pecan encrusted salmon, ribs and scampi were all very good. We'll go back for sure.

The Hubster loves surly waitresses! He has a lot of fun with them and it usually makes for an entertaining dinner! I have not written an updated review for Sandy Hook since we first moved here a few years ago and need to change some information! Sandy Hook is now the Hubster's favorite place for ribs - which makes me... More

We have eaten at the sandy hook many many times. Once, I had a bad piece of prime rib. Told my server and she brought me another one which was much better. The general manager or manager will accommodate you if they can.

Tried this once and food was decent enough, blackened fish of some sort and a seafood platter. Bad biting bugs when we tried to go outside that were not experiienced other places on water. Decent at best. Visit was 9/15.

I told the host this was to be a romantic dinner, so we had to wait a minute while they cleared a waterfront picture window table for us. Good food, generous portions. Excellent service. Been here before, always enjoy it. No waiting off season, which is good.
