We had great raw oysters for a snack and then returned with friends for dinner. The grilled snapper was fantastic, the best meal we had while we were in Panama City. Service was very good and the Margarita's were tasty. The decor is not fancy but the atmosphere is just right for the beach.

I have been here a few times now. I like the atmosphere. It's more of a sports bar than anything else. I would say make a meal out of appetizers and oysters. Or chow down on a good po'boy

We visited the Sandbar on the recommendation of a friend, and we weren't disappointed! I had the mussels as an appetizer & my husband had the gumbo; both were very good. For the main course I had the Grecian Grouper... I cannot rave enough about this meal... delicious! I would never have thought to put these flavors together, but boy... More

The reason that I gave this a 4 is because of the smell. There was an odor to the place, however the food was extremely good!

We were visiting from the northern states and wanted a good classic southern food experience. One of the servers there took time to explain what we should get for our large groups...14. We took their advice and were VERY pleased. Great experience. Great food.

My boyfriend and I recently ate here. The prices are high, the food was mediocre. My boyfriend was trying to find more of a local place to eat but it was sort of just another tourist place with a big bill not worth the meal at the end. We left a little dissatisfied and felt robbed of our money. Atmosphere... More

A little hole in the wall and it was great. The service was good and the food even better. Oysters were fresh and delicious and the BBQ is excellent. Would definitely go back!!

This place has the potential to be a great dining option for locals and visitors. First they need to find someone in the kitchen with some basic cooking skills and then hire all new staff. The quality of the oysters were pretty bad for a place who brags about their oysters. We tried to play it safe by ordering "bar... More

The visit was suggested by our hotel. We arrived and the waiter , Dennis, was great , friendly and very thorough. He was a bit overwhelmed but so nice. We had a variety that he suggested , the only problem was a few of the sandwitches were cold inside but I think its just how busy they were. Ask for... More
