Great Beach front seafood. We dine with visiting friends here. Arrive early for parking and good seating.

We went in for lunch on a nice sunny Sunday. The beaches were crowded and the restaurant had a 30 minute wait. We were seated in 15-20 minutes (shorter than we were told!) and had a scenic table on the deck. We ordered our drinks and then our lunches. We had the chicken quesadilla, grouper sandwich (grilled) and the fish and chips. We were told the fish in the fish and chips was not cod or whitefish, but another fish that had more taste. The fish and chips were good, but still very bland, just like a standard whitefish or cod. The grouper was grilled properly but also bland; a little salt, lemon and tartar sauce helped. The quesadilla was good, not stellar. The sides were all good. The lunch was a decent fare, and the location wonderful, overlooking the beach but this was not an award-winning lunch.

We waited to sit on the beach deck and it was worth it!!! The food was amazing. It came with salad, potato, veggies and your entree and the price was reasonable. We also had drinks .. very good frozen drinks.
I had the crab encrusted scallops ... best I have ever had. My husband had the crab stuffed shrimp and felt the same about his meal. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed sitting on the beach deck .. great view and great sunset!

We stopped by the Sandbar's beautiful bar for a drink on Wednesday the 20th of March. We were considering eating lunch there but after the horrible service we received at the bar by the most unfriendly and arrogant bartenders, we got completely tuned off. We are mature seasoned travelers and this service was the worst we ever received at a bar. It was not just us who were treated this way but in observing the service to others it was the same. Shame on the owners for not training their servers to treat customers with friendliness and courtesy!!!
