“Good food,painted but still worn....”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Was looking forward to a delicious meal at the Sandpiper,and since they have been closed for some time due to construction,we expected to see an update modern restaurant......fooled again!!The front of the building was expanded as a waiting room,and in the furure a small bar for when patrons were waiting,but the rest of the building may have been painted,but no further updating.

The hostest greeted us with an arrogant attitude,and seated us at a table,with vinal table cloth..which had a hole in it the size on a quarter.Now this is supposed to be a five star eatery,with the prices to match,but it fall short of the billing.

The same old crackers are perched upon the table for one's enjoyment while they wait for thier meal.On the brighter side when the seafood was served,it did have eye appeal. And yes ,the entire dinner was delicious..Would we go back?Maybe,if the wait staff paid as much attention to the dinners as they do the drinkers,where they make all of their profits.

“Best Food in Lancaster Virginia”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Excellent food, service everything. I always thought the Tides had the best seafood bisque but theirs is much better. Have gone there for years and always been great, and this last time was no different.

“The highlight of our weekend: Friday night at The Sandpiper”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

For 18 years we have joined friends (Customers and Staff) at the Sandpiper Restaurant every Friday night we are in town. The service is wonderful; the food is consistently well prepared and delicious; the atmosphere friendly. Our out-of town family members and house guests always try to arrange their arrival time for Friday afternoon so they can share the dining experience. Famous for preparing high quality seafood and steaks just right, Sandpiper offers other options to add variety to the menu. When we travel we always look forward to returning for a great meal!

“If you are looking for a great dining experience, go where the locals go.”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

The Sandpiper provides a warm, comfortable atmosphere where you will enjoy consistantly fresh and well prepared meals! I highly recommend their fresh fish specials and their hand cut steaks cannot be beat. Whether you are talking baseball with Jimmy the bartender, discussing the must sees in the area with friendly wait staff members, or hearing the history of this long time family owned restaurant from owner, Kelly, your evening will be a true Northern Neck expreience!

“Spectacular!”
Reviewed November 5, 2011

Spectacular every time! Quaint and classy and never disappoints. Seafood is always great, always fresh choices for specials, Filet mignon will melt in your mouth. Their soups are always my favorite. We frequent this restaurant and have never been disappointed.
