We've been coming to OBX/Frisco for a few years and this year we decided to try Sandbar for dinner. Arrived at 5:00 on a Saturday night and it was pretty empty - got a great corner table overlooking the sound. Within the course of our meal, the place was jam packed and a wait.
Overall, the food was very good and service was quick - My wife got Crabcakes (they were tasty), I got Blackened Mahi-Mahi which was prepared just right and fresh/tasty as well. Kids got Fried Shrimp and the other one got a burger :-) Our waitress said the Caesar Salad was great, so we got that as a side, and she was right - (it was really large - could not eat it all!)
Her other recommendation was the Special of the Day - A Seafood Bisque with Crab, Shrimp, and Scallops. We decided to share a bowl as an appetizer. Well, the bowl was big, and the Bisque was so filling, it could have been an entree in itself. It was thick, creamy, lumpy with seafood, spicy, but not too spicy, dark flavor but not too dark - it was the best seafood bisque I have ever had.
Next time I'm back, I'm calling to see if its the special of the day, and getting a bowl of this and nothing else - simply great!
