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 have made it a tradition to stop at the Sandbar on our first day at AMI. Our server this time, Parrish, was friendly and attentive. The food was good, but on the expensive side. But the best reason to go to the Sandbar is to dine right on the beach.

WE had the grouper basket and it was awesome! the hush puppies best ever. We had one of their Malibu Coconut drinks and it was wonderfully refreshing and delicious.

We come to the Sandbar on our annual visits to AMI, at least twice each visit, and have never been disappointed. The service is always excellent and the food good. Our most favourite restaurant on AMI, we never tire of it.

Listen the bottom line here is the food is just mediocre. So, I have instructed my wife and kids to order up a cheap sandwich and water to drink and enjoy this wonderful beach front location, the vibe and relax enjoy life. Dont hate just appreciate ! You realy haven't arrived on AMI until you have experienced The Sandbar Restaurant. No bad waiter can ruin my experience, just take a chill pill . Life is good! This restaurant sits at the heart of AMI and the owner has spent alot of money remodeling this place.I happy for his success . We will be back again in june.

Loved the view, doesn't get any better. Grouper tacos were amazing and their fries are delicious. Our waitress, Whitney, was delightful and very attentive. We ate there twice in 5 days and it continues to be a favorite.
