“Really Yummy, Great Place, Fun Shopping”
Reviewed January 2, 2011

We went for dinner our first night. Very short wait that we spent in the gift shop (they have some great items at very fair prices). We were seated by the window on the beach, it was after dark but still beautiful. A really fun menu, great selection to make everyone happy, wine was nice and everything tasted great. This needs to be a stop on your visit to Anna Maria.

“Sandbar is Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed December 15, 2010

Set on the beach, with spectacular views, one can't help but wonder if they've gone to heaven. Like everyone in Anna Maria, the employees are wonderful, attentive, and laid back. We will definitely be going back.

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed December 11, 2010

I went toward the evening so they played this game where you guess the time of the sunset and win a bottle of champagne. I was one second off and someone guessed the right time!! haha
The setting is sooo romantic, its right on the beach and the food was wonderful. The service was great too, attentive but not annoying or anything.

“Great View, Great Service, Decent Food”
Reviewed November 30, 2010

Right on the beach, tables in the sand. Very personable and knowledgeable wait staff. Food was not gourmet, but neither was it bad. As long as you don't expect 5 star food, you'll have a good meal and a great experience
