“Best Beach Bar & Grill Ever!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Over the past few years we have walked up and down many of the beaches on both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Our favourite pastime is to try as many beach bars as we can.
In my opinion Sandbar Bill's deserves special mention. A typical Tiki Bar with 3 flat screens nicely situated if you want the latest news or sports,cold draft on tap, a couple of blenders going full time for a variety of drinks.However, what makes this place really special is "the amazing food" coming from a kitchen the size of a closet.The mega-size cheese burger with fresh toppings on the side has to be the best on the beach, maybe the best in Florida, maybe the "best ever"
We have been back 3 times to try grilled chicken,spicy shrimp wrap,fish spread and a lot of other fresh and healthy unique dishes. No fries, no fryer, not necessary!
The man behind the grill is RICK. I don't know how he does it. The food comes out extremely fast, extremely consistent and extremely delicious.Five stars!
The orders are then distributed immediately by JACKIE, the lady behind the bar who seems to have six hands, slinging drinks all the while and finding moments here and there to squeeze in pleasant conversation. Five stars!
Keep it coming folks and congratulations! We will be back tonight, our last day on the beach.

We walked down for lunch twice while on St Pete Beach. They really do have the best burgers, great service and friendly people. Would like to stay at their motel as well, Bon Aire

“Soooo Good!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We ordered from here 3 times while we were in St Pete Beach last week. We recommend the chicken fajita ka-bobs, burgers, turkey club wrap, blt, and the buffalo chicken wrap. Fresh, and yes, large portions and soooo tasty! We stayed across the street at Bay Palms so it was so convenient just to walk across the street and get some really, really, good food! And.....you can get a cocktail while you are waiting! Love the Meloncolada and I had a strawberry mango daiquiri! When we were hanging out at the beach we would get it to go and they wrapped up everything nice and put it in a white paper bag....so easy to carry!! Big thumbs up for Sandbar Bill's....I am still craving those fajita chicken kabobs!!
