Good food, nice atmosphere but had a creepy server that kept getting in your personal space. if you order fish, specify medium rare or it will be overcooked. Steak was cooked well.

We went with a large group this evening and it was wonderful. Arrived early and had the place to ourselves for the first part of the meal. Had appetizers of boom boom shrimp, oysters, crab cakes. All were great,especially the shrimp. The main meals were good sized and very well done. I had the mixed grill and they did a nice job of adding the right amount of spice without being too much. The offered desserts but we were all too full. A very nice addition to the island and has the chance to be one of our must visit places.

Very happy with this new restaurant. Dined with 3 other friends. Everyone enjoyed their meal--grilled scallops, baby back ribs, seafood stew and coconut shrimp. Very clean and comfortable seating. Staff was pleasant and professional. Two thumbs up!

We ate at Sandbar last night and we were very disappointed! We ordered the bronzed seafood platter and the pork chop. The pork chop was underseasoned, very bland. The seafood platter was not worth $27- also tasteless. We are Sanibel regulars and we were excited to try a new place. We will not return!

Visited for the first time and was suitably impressed. I had cycled past it many times when it was under a different name but had never been tempted to visit until this year, glad we did. Mrs H had the Lobster tail and I went for the Top Sirloin, both very well cooked and presented. Mrs H finished the meal with an excellent Key Lime Pie with 2 forks.
