We had one night on Sanibel Island and picked The Sandbar based on others reviews. Our experience here was fabulous. We each had fish dishes and they were cooked to perfection. The waitstaff was very accommodating and eager to answer questions. If we ever get back to Sanibel Island that will be one of our first stops. Thanks for a great meal.

We come to Sanibel every Fall and try different restaurants every year. This restaurant has been through a number of owners but we're very pleased with The Sanbar. They served delicious bread with oil and balsamic vinegar to start. My mother in law and I ordered wine and received generous portions. I ordered the the crab cakes and again it was a generous portion and some of the best crab cakes I have ever tasted. I would definitely recommend!!!

I ordered the mixed grill...grouper, scallops and shrimp...there was nothing left on my plate. Mt husband had the seafood stew...mussels, shrimp, scallops and grouper. This dish was cooked with fresh ingredients and was wonderful. The bread was superb, service was the best and the interior was bright and clean. It was an old house at one time and had a lot of rehab. The restaurant should be on your list and should not be missed!!!

We eat at the Sandbar every couple months and have never been disappointed. The dishes are well conceived and prepared. It's tucked away on West Gulf Drive so Island visitors might pass it by without giving it notice. It should be a go to if you're looking for well prepared fish and seafood, not the over-breaded and deep fried kind.

The food was amazing and the service the same!! The portions are very generous and the staff very friendly. We felt like family. Would highly recommend every time you visit! Almost forgot to mention how clean the entire place is :).
