“Dinner on the Beach!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

We visited the restaurant after sunset and ate outside with fabulous views of the ocean. The food was good but not fantastic, perhaps that was just our choice. The waiting staff very attentive and overall we enjoyed our evening and would probably return!

“Lovely view and service, but food just OK”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We had a very lovely evening thanks to the service and view of the beautiful beach, but the food was just OK, for the price.

“Great Service and Bartenders!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Outstanding drinks, service and food. Ryan and the team of bartenders at the Sandbar always go out of there way to ensure that my wife and I have an great experience! Our favorite restaurant on AMI. They have the best drinks including the best pina colada and rum punch buckets! The inside was recently remodeled and is outstaning With out a doubt one of the best places to watch a Sunset in the world!

“Beautiful setting, great food”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

We had a late lunch inside because in climate weather on Tuesday and dinner on the beach on Friday. Both meals were very good. On Friday there was a large crowd for the sunset, and we had a rather long wait for the 11 of us to be seated, but it was worth the wait. My favorite meal was the Seafood MarVista. The servings are large, so I recommend sharing, if you aren't a heavy eater.
