Description: The Sandbar Restaurant, located on the north end of Anna Maria Island, has for decades been a favorite for locals. Dine with your toes in the sand and a drink in your hand on our waterfront deck or enjoy our inside dining room. We offer gulf to table, farm to fork, and pasture to plate sustainable menu items. Our menus reflect our commitment to serving our guests the best in local and sustainable seafood, produce, and land fare. The Sandbar is the most popular place on Anna Maria Island for beach weddings and sunset receptions. The award winning venue is perfect for intimate gatherings to elaborate affairs, especially weddings.

We always stop in at the sandbar when we are on the island. We stopped in the other night for a late dinner. A bit of a wait but you don't really mind once you get to your table. Our table had a panaramic view of the gulf. We had a party of six. We all had great food from the chicken, to the steaks to the seafood.

What a great restaurant this is! My partners parents live in Florida and took us here when we visited. It was lovely especially as it is on the beach. If you visit Anna Maria then you must try this restaurant.

This is one of three restaurants owned by the same firm. The other two are the Beach House and Mar Vista. All three are very nice. The Sandbar is overlooking the Gulf with a very fine view. The food and service were what you would expect from a more costly restaurant. BUT you definitely get your money's worth. I'm not a fan of valet parking so I made sure to visit it in non-peak hours.
