My husband and I visit Sandwich often. We were there last week and on the last day of our vacation, decided to have lunch with our family at Hemisphere. We had only been here twice before, once for lunch and once for their New Year's Celebration. When we were there during this visit, we wondered why we didn't choose this restaurant more often. The food was very good, the service also very good. The menu might be considered by some to be a bit limited but, there was a sufficient variety for our party and the prices are very reasonable, especially for ocean side dining. The drinks are also very good and reasonably priced as well. I would definitely recommend a visit to Hemisphere on your next stop in Sandwich.

That just about says it all. It was our first trip here this summer. We do usually go at least once a year. This time the food was noticeably better. In the past it has been a bit hit and miss - you have to know what to order. We just had appetizers and drinks this time, though. But the seafood was perfectly cooked. Nice view!!! That's the main reason to go.

We visited Hemisphere's twice during our stay in Sandwich and each time was at the end of a long day in the hot sun.
We were looking for a place with a patio facing the water and Hemisphere hit the nail on the head. The bar and patio are on the second floor of the building and we opted to sit outside. Service was good and friendly and there are assorted cocktail specials to make the visit easy on the wallet as well as enjoying the view of the bay.
The bar looked like a good local haunt and we will try it if we return in cooler weather.

We had an extremely disappointing experience here. The service was horrible (Our waitress seemed like she wanted to be anywhere but there....and it turns out she was also a manager!) Had to send an expensive mixed drink back because it was made wrong and tasted like they forgot the alcohol. The waitress took it back and said she would take it off the bill...but never did.

The food took a long time to receive and when it finally did arrive it was terrible. The two salads that we ordered that had lobster in them were beyond soggy and the lobster was obviously from a freezer bag. Another salad that contained "grilled chicken" tasted like cold Perdue, pre-made chicken strips and both kids dishes were cold to the touch.

We vacation in Sandwich every year and we will NEVER return to this dump. In desreve this economy, I am going to give my hard earned money to local restaurants that make an effort and know what they are doing.

They have a great location and a staff and kitchen that is not even trying. Save your money and pay attention to the majority of negative reviews on this site. Don't be fooled!
