Sandbridge Island Restaurant is a casual eatery with great food and service. We went at lunchtime on a Friday; the place was crowded but we still got timely and attentive service. They have a diverse menu, which was perfect for me since I don't eat seafood. But my friends do and they all loved it. Some in our party ordered a pizza and commented that it was wonderful. I got the Carolina barbecue sandwich and it was just as tasty as any you'd get in NC. And they have crinkle cut fries, which I love. There are only a couple of restaurants in Sandbridge, so it's a good thing that at least one of them is great for seafood lovers and non-seafood lovers.

Staying on Sandbridge Beach, and opted to try it for the first time. It is a local restaurant, and is quite crowded as is only one of two directly at the beach front area. We ended up at the bar as the place was packed and over an hour wait for 2 people. Had their raw oysters, which were great. Their sandwiches were fine, nothing outstanding. Bar service was wonderful, never really felt overlooked.

They also have a pizza place, and they do deliver or you can pick up.

Saturday Check in day dinner for us is traditionally a pizza from Sandbridge island. At the end of the week we usually stop in for their AYCE crablegs and shrimp for a 'seafood night' before we leave the beach. The atmosphere is casual beach bar/seafood house, with paper table covers, classic beach house decoration and a friendly staff, Sandbridge Island is a must do for us on our trips to our favorite beach. With the back deck overlooking the dunes of Sandbridge Beach, nothing quite puts you on 'Island Time' like a stop at Sandbridge island restaurant!

My husband and i decided to go for a drive today....a sunny but chilly Sunday .....one of those days where you want to get out of the house but not do too much of anything.......anyway,ended up driving here and after a short stroll on the beach(was colder than we thought once we got out the car.lol)decided we felt peckish, and we were parked right outside this establishment. Lazy Sunday feel to it, only a couple of guys having a drink at the bar, and only ourselves and one other couple sitting down to eat. I had the Clam Chowder,hubby had chilli, then we shared some wings.We both ordered coffee,and tho the waitress said she was just putting on a fresh pot, it tasted like coffee that had been sitting a while,there was a burnt tang to it.The food was good,nothing startling,service good, everyone friendly.
I think a few things need "tweaking" here n there......such as the cistern in the bathroom without a lid,or the bathroom stall without a lock. Otherwise, a nice quiet sleepy place to spend an afternoon. I have read the other reviews and seems this place gets exceptionally busy at times.
