Locals type restaurant with seafood and more. Small outdoor eating area where you can look at the pretty dunes. Right next to free public parking and large parking lot at restaurant. Convenience store attached to restaurant. Had crab cakes and quesedillas - both good. Very...nice staff and good service. Very casual place and casual attire.More

For our COVID escape vacation, we planned to cook in every night, but first night carry out pizza and a 2:00 Friday lunch were at Sandbridge Restaurant. Highly recommend. The pizza was great and reasonably priced. For lunch, the oysters rockefeller were the best I've...ever had. Others dining enjoyed the steamed clams and clam strips. Mandy was our server and she was top notch - friendly and efficient.More

We ordered pick up two times from here. First time ordered dinner for 6 and only cost $150. Hush puppies were good. Cheese steak sandwiches were tasty. Second time I ordered the Stromboli. It was GIGANTIC. Easily could have fed 3, if not 4.

Best food ever! My favorite is the boiled shrimp. My husband's favorite is the philly cheese steak sandwich and the hushpuppies (which have corn inside..not seen this before where we live). Everything we tried was delicious! My niece loved the calzone. The have seafood, pizza,...salads, sandwiches...just a great variety for everyone in your party!More

We arrived on a Friday for a late lunch. Hostess had a mask, gloves and disposable menus. All tables were social distanced and had butcher block paper on them for easy disposal. Staff - wiped every chair/table down when a group left. Mandy was our...server - she knew all the beers on tap, didn't rush us, super nice. Bottled beer - was the coldest I had ever had!!!! None of us were disappointed in our food. From raw bar to pizza slices. If this isn't a family run business, it sure looked like it is - the staff all worked together very well and all had the same welcoming attitude. The area is prime for business - I can't image what it is like in a regular summer....packed! My only complaint - flies, anything at the doors to keep the flies out would be fabulous.More

Great dive bar in Sandbridge! I’ve been coming to this restaurant for over 10 years and never left a review. I thought it was time. Great tap beer selection and other adult beverages. This place has never disappointed me and I’ve tried most of everything....This place during the summer season is always packed and they do not take reservation. If you are looking for something other than sea food get their Chicken cheese steak, it’s a rich but tasty. Their oyster Rockefeller or clam casinos are always good. Fried oyster basket is also a good bet. Again, the title of my review is great dive bar... they surly could use a slight remodel. Since I’ve been coming here, it’s been the same droopy sealing tile. I get it the owner is afraid of opening a can of worms or maybe he/she/they are cheap. Regardless I recommend this place.More

Service was a little slow during a busy Saturday afternoon but the eventual shrimp was worth waiting for....as was the local beers.

I have to say the food was great but the flies in the Restaurant ruined our meal. Not only were they landing on our food but landing on us. I know this time of year its hard but they should take the effort to get...rid of them. I could see if we chose to eat outside but we were inside.More

Ordered the Calzone with pineapple and ham, but it came out as pineapple and hamburger. Not a big deal, still tasted good, and big portion too! No splitting checks though, as that made it a bit difficult with everyone paying by cash and three different...parties. Otherwise i would go back.More

This is a regular stop for us each year. This year we got carry out due to limited time before a scheduled tour. Our order was ready on time for our party of 10. Everyone enjoyed the lobster rolls, wings salad and pizza. They forgot...to give us one item. They called even before we realized it and offered to deliver it. We were staying on the far end of the island but delivery was fast and courteous! Mistakes do happen but the staff went over and beyond to make it right!More
