I go here every time I visit Panama City Beach. Each time I always sit at the oyster bar and eat the steamed oysters, so that's all I can recommend. And they are great! The beer is cold, and the people working the bar are on top of their game.

We dined outside with a large group. The food was fabulous and the fresh crayfish is best ordered on Thursday we were told.

This was our first dining experience at the Sandbar and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Very low key, casual surroundings - friendly staff - great food. We will go back.

Was trying The Sandbar for the second time. The first time ended with us walking out after waiting for 15 minutes and being noticed by no one. This time was the polar opposite of that visit We did have to wait for a minute but before long Tiffany was at our table taking our drink and lunch order. Wife had... More

On the sign it said cook wanted, and we couldn't agree more. They need a new cook. And when you are out of something, like all of the BBQ, you can't tell the customer when the other dishes are ready, resulting in 2 of 5 having to choose something else only to have it rushed out not properly cooked. Got... More
