Where do you go when a new town member says that they want to try something different? Everyone has been to the beach bar/restaurants. 'Not another burger' - please! I remembered that I have always had a delicious, relaxed meal at the Sand Trap. Today did not disappoint. My friend and I sat at the bar and ordered draft beer... More

We are new to the area and picked this spot because it was on the way to another destination. What an interesting place. I don't know too many restaurants where you can order great Thai food, hamburgers, or a taco salad. Our party of three had a grilled chicken salad (good), a hamburger (also good) and Thai fried rice (excellent).... More

It is amazing to get both the Thai and American food under one roof. This is great since I love Thai and my husband loves his hamburgers. My mother has eaten the fish here and said it was the best fish and chips she has ever had.

The restaurant was clean and the staff super friendly and fast. It is sort of a mixed bag as it has a sports bar atmosphere yet serves pub food, American standard and Thai. Interesting combo of foods on the menu. I think that if some of the Food Channel chefs were to give a critique they would say too much... More

I found this restaurant when visiting for work. It was so delicious I went back twice! I had the drunken noodles and they were great with tons of good vegetables. The menu was half Thai and half American. I'm new to appreciating Thai food, so I can't speak to how authentic it was, but it was delicious! I appreciate they... More

We visited The Sand Trap with friends for dinner. The menu offers quite a variety of both American and Thai food. There is a $15.00 per bottle corkage fee if you bring your own wine, and a $4.00 split plate charge. While the food and atmosphere are OK, this wouldn't be one of my "go-to" places.

Good service is the hallmark here, food is just average, brightly lit interior and sports bar atmosphere. I had the Philly Steak Sub, which was good last year, not that great this year. My wife had Lobster Tails, (floating in too much butter). Owners are great people, also serving Thai cuisine.Give it a try.

Very good food. Had the Taco Salad and chicken fingers. Service was good. Would have given 5 star but was disappointed that the bar only served beer and wine.
