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.

Enjoyed the gorgeous view during a quick trip. We sat outside and watched a wedding while we ate. The food was just ok nothing I would write home about. Maybe it was an off day maybe not. We are not picky when it comes to food but it has to be cooked properly. Sent back raw fish. Drinks were delish so that made up for it. Fun location not sure if we would return for dinner.

An excellent beach setting - you can dine al fresco with your toes in the sand or on decking. The view is wonderful - long stretch of sandy beach with few people and lots of birds. Menu is varied and there is something for everyone. We had fish and we were not disappointed. Lovely. We all thought the pricing reasonable for its location and quality. We have visited this restaurant before so made a point of going there again and taking along some friends - it did not disappoint.

This place, The Beachhouse and MarVista are all owned by the same company. This shows through in their menu and philosophy of not serving the best food simply because people will still show up due to their location.

I love the Sandbar! It has the best views of the beach and ocean! Go for lunch or go right as the sun is setting. Food is always good. The service is always great! Our waitress (I think her name was Brandy) was very knowledgeable and helped us each pick the right entree. You can't go wrong with Sandbar!

The Sandbar is every bit worth the price of the meals. There food is really tasty, drinks are somewhat pricey, but the view obviously makes up for it!...
Service is Excellent!!
