Looking for a new restaurant on Sanibel I read about Sandbar. Decided to try it and was so pleasantly surprised. The grouper was terrific, the seafood chowder was the best and the crab bisque was loved by all at our table. My husband thought the scallops were better than the ones he had in Nova Scotia.

I enjoyed the Sandbar Margarita which was a winner. The bartender, wait staff and owner were terrific. Even for the non fish people the Chicken parm was wonderful. So when looking for a reataurant come to Sandbar you will not be disappointed.

We tried out the Sandbar since we were staying right down the road. It was a nice and clean but it seemed a little classy since we were dressed in jeans and t-shirts. The food was average and the kids burgers were huge. I personally think the wait staff was over dressed and would have felt more comfortable if it were a more "beachy" atmosphere. We paid about $90 for two adults and two kids. I didnt feel the food was anything to write home about. The wait staff was good but we probably would not eat there again.
