Perfect place to watch the game. Food was excellant and service was outstanding! I ordered smoked tuna dip, hubby ordered oysters. Both were exceptionally good. This has become one of our favorite places to visit when we go to PC

They told us the wait would be 20 minutes but it was one and a half hours. The place is VERY noisy which made it hard to carry on a conversation. The food was good. I had the Grouper basket which came with fries and slaw. Really good. The beer was cold and the company good. I'd probably go again.

We tried the grouper basket and 1 lb spicy boiled shrimp with low-country boil side. Shrimp were very tasty as was the low-country side. Grouper was rubbery.

My boyfriend and I came here for lunch one Sunday afternoon with an average crowd in the restaurant in hopes for some good seafood. We ordered the tuna dip from an appetizer which was completely flavorless. My grilled shrimp and scallops were average but the roasted potatoes were under cooked. My boyfriends crab cake sandwich had an odd taste. Our... More

We ate at the Sandbar 2 nights during our recent PCB vacation. The seafood is good, we always go for a dozen cheese baked oysters, and then split a fried seafood platter! We leave stuffed!

First, I have to say, I usually love this place but not last night. They always have fresh seafood daily & believe it or not (in a beach town), a lot of places down here don't. They also have a nice outside porch to eat on or to smoke while drinking your beer & watching football. One of the few... More

On our arrival in Panama City Beach we passed a little Seafood Bar & Grill. It not being far from our stay, we strolled down to check the place out. It was at first glance your standard road house bar & grill. The patio out front was almost full so we decided to give it a try. Once entering the... More
