Oysters (raw and smokin' cheese baked), grouper sandwiches, and steamed mussels--oh my goodness, so good! Love the lively atmosphere and the many TVs to keep up with football games. Great friendly service!

Fried avocado appetizer was very good. We both had blackened grouper. Mine was terrible, very rubbery. My mom’s was better but still nothing to brag about. Not sure I will be back. Staff was friendly.

Husband and kids enjoyed the food, however I felt it was below average for coastal seafood at an average price. The shrimp was rubbery and the crab legs were subpar. The best part of The Sandbar is the service, especially for the kiddos.

As long as time allows, yes. This time of year we normally do have time. The fish must be cleaned and ready to cook, a nominal fee will be added depending upon your total purchases.
