We are a local business located just minutes before the beautiful beaches of Grand Beach. Great for swimming in the summer and ice fishing in the winter. We offer a variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items as well as a full service bar and vendor.

Visited the restaurant during a day trip to Grand Marais. Sandbar offers great food with a good portion. We tried the Kahuna burger and beach bar burger and the fish and chips and nacho grande. Shout out to Alexis who gave us a very good service.

My partner and I met Ariel today when she served us. She was a very attentive and personable server. We came for lunch, and were going to go somewhere else for dinner, but decided to come back, knowing Ariel would be working and that the service would be excellent. Well priced meals. Great portions. Good quality food. We will return

I really can’t say enough about this often underrated place. We went there this evening for an absolutely delicious meal. Everything about our meals was perfect and the service was outstanding. Things have really changed in the last few years for the better and I am never disappointed when I come to The Sandbar. For dinner, we had some of the best french fries we’ve ever had (they double fry them!) and my quesadilla was fabulous - not an ounce of grease to be seen! The Ruben sandwich was fresh and delish and the chicken caesar salad was a very large portion and super fresh. Even the Coca-Cola was brixed properly! More local folks need to start supporting the small businesses in town if they want them to survive, and I highly recommend getting down to the sandbar ASAP to enjoy the great food and service!

Spent the whole day around the Grand Beach area. Finished our day on the patio at the Sandbar. Our first server never had a smile on her face once and couldn't seem to care or answer our questions. Thankfully a new server appeared and saved the whole experience. She was very attentive to our needs and answered all of our questions about the menu and the local area. I never got her name but she has very long hair.

The food was excellent and the staff was incredibly family, had an amazing time from when I sat down until I left. I come here to eat and get drinks every time I am in Grand Beach, I highly recommend to come here when you're around, I can't find any complaints about the service I constantly get

Good deal for 14$. you get a sirloin steak or chicken fingers, coleslaw and baked potato or fries as well as a beer or shot. We have always had good steaks when we have eaten here- tender and tasty. There is an outdoor patio or AC inside.

I went up for a visit in the area and stayed at the Sand Bar Motor Inn. I was very impressed with the changes from the last time I had been there. They have done a lot of renovations and the place was clean and comfortable. Had the steak special and enjoyed it very much. A lot of food for the price. Will definitely visit again.

Recently, my wife and I were on the way back from Victoria Beach and just wanted a quick something to eat. Well, it didn't turn out to be quick but both of our meals: a Denver and Oriental Chicken Salad were very tasty. There was a bar atmosphere but regardless, the food was good enough to entice us back. An outdoor patio was available but we opted for the air conditioned dining room on a very hot day.

We weren't looking for a gourmet meal. How could someone make nachos taste horrible?!?! We asked the waitress if there were any hot peppers on the nachos [because we usually ask for more jalepenos]. She said they used banana peppers. No problem. What we got was DISGUSTING!!! The nacho chips were stale. No banana peppers to be seen. Maybe a tablespoon of cheese. The only veggies were diced up green onion. We asked for the ground beef on the side. It was ice cold. I will never eat there again and discourage anyone from eating the food.
