“Without the ocean view, just another touristy restaurant.”

The Beachhouse, the Sandbar, and Mar Vista all have the same owner. I have never eaten at the Mar Vista, but the Beachhouse and Sandbar are very similar -- casual setting, nice view, great for sunsets, similar unimaginative menus, average quality and the level of service varies. However, if you have enough drinks, you probably won't notice the mediocrity and will just enjoy the camaraderie and beautiful sunset. We won't be rushing back to either place.

“Touristy Fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

This great location with difficult parking is always fun and good, but if you are looking for a meal that knocks your socks off, it isn't the place for you. Stop there for the beach, the people watching and the flavor of the area, and expect good, but not spectacular food.
It never appeals to me to have cool fries with a burger or a fried fish platter, but so often, the waiter brought them to me that way. I try this place once a year, and it is consistent. Go and have fun, but don't expect anything other than a beach bar with nice atmosphere, calm and serenity upon occasion.
This place can get absolutely packed during December-April, so expect some wait time, and do expect so cool food on a plate you ordered.

“Always a Favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

We have been visiting Anna Maria Island for more than 20 years and always eat at the the Beach House and Sandbar restaurants. We much prefer the outside decks at both - there is no place better to dine and watch the sunset and there is usually great local entertainment to enjoy while you dine.
