Sat down and no one wanted to serve us-went to the bar and no one wanted to serve. I do not consider this customer focussed. Might be ok if you are a friend of the manager- I was looking for dinner and a few drinks...More

We used to come to this place when it was Flounders and I loveeeeeee what they've done with this space. There's an inside dining area, covered outside and a couple bars and then sand area and even fire pits for when it's chilly. They have...More

Maybe I led a somewhat sheltered life prior to hitting the Sandbar Tiki and Grille. Or maybe this was just one of the best times I've ever had. Either way, a group of us went to hear a specific band; it was a first visit...More

We visited on the evening of our 25th anniversary with our teenage daughters. It was a beachy feel but a bit run down imo. The service was ok. The margaritas were not good. Our food, scallops, fish & chips, etc were just "ok". The bill...More

Picture-perfect tiki bar setting. Bring the kids, order the fish tacos, grab a rum drink, dance to the music and don't forget to catch the sunset. And try the dessert.

Very fun and lively spot. Plenty of games, seats around fire pits, indoor and outdoor seating. There is live music during the afternoon and in the evening. We visited once late at night for a drink and once around 5:30pm for dinner. I had the...More

Flounders has been renamed to SandBar Tiki Grille, with new ownership. I'm here off-season, in June, and they are definitely open.

Hi! Not sure, but like previously stated, a party of 6 or more, you may wish to call first! I've heard they can get bogged down when a big party comes. i.e.... Long wait for food.

Yes -- I saw a few people with dogs there. It was a wonderful to be able to look over and see them behaving well at their owners feet! One came off of a boat with his/her family; another was already there when I arrived... More
