Best birthday experience on the island! Food was EXCEPTIONALLY good! Wings, crab dip, and the nightly tuna specials were on POINT. Great atmosphere! When the entire restaurant sings you happy birthday, that’s something special! Highly recommend them!

COVID presented no real challenge for these aces. We ate outside, on magnificent picnic tables, with a busking master guitarist. Song choices were almost as awesome as my Tournadoes of beef and fresh shrimp, or my bride’s shrimp and grits. Cold beer, incredible and funny...service staff, and a night I won’t forget. (You can eat INSIDE, as well, if you aren’t as worried about the virus.)More

Two of us who are good eaters yet lucky enough to have enjoyed some excellent meals thoroughly appreciated our dinner. One ate the plentiful shrimp and grits with excellent, nicely seasoned sauce. The other enjoyed two large crab cakes with ample lump crabmeat. Decent prices...and great service. Wait was easy. Great place to watch the sun set too. Better than Pangea and Cafe Pamlico, though they were good.More

Outside seating wasn't attended to, so tables were unclean and too close together. No service. Food was just OK. Oysters Rockefeller using fried oysters and no shells? Made no sense. Probably was a great party place before Covid. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g48993-d1089576-r760050344-Sandbar_Grille-Buxton_Hatteras_Island_Outer_Banks_North_Carolina.html#

Loved our meal choices. Leftovers were just as good the next day. The staff are professional, friendly, and accommodating. The view while dining is amazing.

You will choose well if you get here early enough to get seating inside. The food was VERY fresh and well prepared. The service was spot on, and the atmosphere cozy and clean. We loved the Widespread Panic band posters. If you can't snag a...table, they have spots outdoors for parties to wait for takeout, but I don't think they are serving sit down dining outdoors, at least not on the weekend we visited. Overall, our dinner and dining experience were very enjoyable, and we would happily come eat here again.More

Visited this restaurant during covid and they have tables set up outside by the water on the sound side. The food was excellent! They mostly serve seafood but have a couple of things for the non seafood eater! Staff is friendly and organized. Fabulous martinis!

Fabulous from start to finish. Special tonight, Hatteras Chowder - wish I could’ve taken it home. Service outstanding - thanks Jeremy. Drinks and dinner delicious! Waterfront dinning and views are breathtaking!

This restaurant is opened seasonally. Located in beautiful Hatteras Village. The best seafood in town, Kudos to the Chef, plus the service is impeccable. Highly recommended

While on our Anniversary vacation we had dinner at Hatteras Sol. The parmesan clam strips were awesome. We also had the shrimp spring rolls and the lump crab cakes. All were very delicious. Would definitely love to go back.

Better check their Facebook page. I’m sure they were affected by hurricane Diorian.

They have a great menu, am sure they could cook your fish the way you prefer it.
