Like your corner bar back home, the sand bar is friendly and has a good atmosphere. We had the Friday fish fry, good portions, reasonably priced and GOOD.

If you want some fun you have to stop at The Sand Bar. Great drinks at a good price. They have live music, with sing a longs. It gets a little crazy on the weekends, but it is good clean fun. Enjoy my friends.
