You are paying for a presentation and location near the Marriott, not for food. Food is good, but definitely not worth the price.Take a cab and get some real food at a decent price.

We visited this bar on the 21 February 2014. We wanted a bite so we decided to order two burgers, one french fries a coke and a US beer. We paid 73 dollars including 20% gratuity which was automatically added to the check. I know that the Virgin Islands are really expensive, but I really do not find this fair.
Yes, the location is close to the beach, but still I sit back with a mixed feeling, since the outside area is not that fancy.

Thank you for joining us at Sandbar, Otic. We hope you enjoyed your meal while dining here. We apologize if our prices come off as a little on the high side, but this is staying in competition with other restaurants on property and on the island. We do hope you enjoyed your stay and come back to dine with us again soon.

Best Wishes,
SandBar Management

The tacos are fantastic best any of us ever had, service was by far the best we have had in the 3 trips we have made to St. Thomas. Alex was fantastic she even said the gratuity was included which many times doesn't get mentioned

I had only few hours to spent on Morningstar beach and sand bar was right by there, I love their blue and white theme w great views of beach and carribean coast! The drinks are a bit weak and on a pricier end, but we can't fight about it cos it's one of two bars by the beach! the lounge seatings are comfortable, good for couples and large groups and if you just wanna hang by the bar area, there's plenty of bar seats. Staffs are friendly and laid back. And if you got bored, you can get some sun on the beach or walk to the next restaurant/bar on frenchman reef side w slightly different vibe and equally good views!
