“Good Recommendation”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

One of the locals told us about the Sand Bar for reasonably priced food with local appeal. We ate there twice (if I hadn't gone back for lunch, rating would have been closer to excellent) and had no problem finding the place either time. The first evening I had the wing appetizer (not much flavor), but my almond tilapia and my lovely bride's grill chicken cob salad was delicious. Our food came out very quickly. I was overly impressed by the service provided by Nicole and Tony (TC). Not once did they come by our table without asking if we needed anything, great tag team!
Our lunch visit was a combo of Finger and toes, mini sloppy Joe's and mini naked wiener on tough bread. Nicole's service was great, but this meal was lacking. If you get the opportunity to go be sure to ask about their fish bowl for your drinks. $13 will get you a fill up. Bring it back on your next visit and get an $8 refill. Trust me, they have some killed drinks and this is a great deal!

“Bar with good food”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Not much to look at...but it is a bar with good food. Took the family for dinner...great drink specials and nice assortment on the menu. Peel and eat shrimp were very good. Calamari and stuffed jalapenos were just ok...coconut shrimp were tasty. Shrimp and clam basket was great. Clams were tender and sweet and shrimp were large and delicious. Great place for a good meal, cold drinks, and reasonable prices.

“Good food with a bar atmosphere”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Local bar that is hard to find but worth the trip. The menu consists of your typical pub food but also offered different seafood baskets. They are known for their raw oysters and they did not disappoint.

“Better than I expected.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

The fingers and toes (fish and chips) was excellent. Fish and fries both tasted fresh. I got the crunchy batter. Also the chicken tenders are great and taco salad. Service was excellent. It's kind of loud so if you want a quiet dinner save this for another night.

“Always makes for a fun evening”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

The Sand Bar is a small locals bar off the beaten path of the hotel crowd. It's a fantastic place to watch a Rays/Marlins game and have a few beers. They have a fantastic selection of beers on tap and the staff is readily available and very welcoming. The blackened fish sandwich is one of the best on the Island.
