Diner Reviews
  • "If you're looking for great food, great Huntington Beach atmosphere, and great service - look no further. Sandy's is my go-to for a casual meal that won't break the bank, but WILL satisfy EVERY taste bud I have. I've dined here dozens of times, and not once have I left unsatisfied. This place is a gem! My personal faves: BREAKFAST: Short rib breakfast burrito, sweet potato chorizo hash, surf burger LUNCH: Layered Seafood Coctail, Arugula Salad, the Jalepeno Date Burger, and the HULA PIE!! (of course) DINNER: Ceviche/skillet corn bread, sea bass, jidori chicken, Fig,Pig,& Bleu Cheese flatbread, and the s'more! Seriously, one of my favorite restaurants of all time!"

  • "Food is amazing and the staff is super nice. The view of the beach/ocean/pier is awesome. Some dinner portions are bigger than other but if you are looking for quality rather than quantity then this is the place for you."

  • "Sandys was a great experience from the beginning. A really friendly staff and great location on the beach. The food and drinks were exactly like the service. Started off with a Mai Tai and Ceviche. They were both really fresh and delicious. Dinner was a nice perfectly cooked Rib Eye with Kale that was to dance on top of table and scream; Yes! Too full for dessert but what a great place next time I am in Huntington Beach I will go back to Sandys. I highly recommend!"

  • "Recommended to us by friend-res made to build points!We arrived early-hostess offered to seat us! We sat in bar to wait 4 friend-drinks:the "strawberry/basil tea"&"vanilla soda w/oranges"-both xlnt! Buckler NA avail-we do not drink, loved this option! DH-flat iron steak w/chimichurri + fries, me: wedge + ceviche & friend: Mushroom flatbread. DH meal xlnt-steak perfec! My wedge very tasty & ceviche was really good - chips need improvement - too thick, not much flavor-meant for sturdier scooping? Friend had the mushroom pizza, which I almost ordered-she shared - OMG, so good!! I wish I was returning today! Varied seating options- in, bar and patio, which did have heaters and looks like roof will open, too! Will return next time here 4 sure!"

  • "I've lived in So Cal all my life & have spent a lot of time in Huntington Beach, but had never eaten here. Came here this week to try it & had a great experience. Wait staff was attentive and friendly, the food was really good. It was lunch & I had a burger, but it was good & nicely presented! Will definitely come back!"

  • "Even though we were late for our reservation, the servers were VERY friendly and considerate! They even gave part of our group free appetizers when we had to move to a smaller table (after our group went from 12 to 6). They gave my sister a free dessert and drink because it was her bachelorette party! The food was delicious. We had an awesome experience! "

  • "Staying in Huntington Beach for a few nights, we wanted dinner and to watch the sunset on the water. Sandy's fulfilled everything we wanted. Their appetizer menu offered so many intersting items that we ordered 3 to split along with wine and just took our time to watch the 'show'. Beer battered green beans, skillet cornbread and a California cheese and sausage platter more than filled us up. The restaurant is right on the beach so it's a great place to people watch. The servers were very helpful but not intrusive. We capped our meal off with Hula Pie, 3 different flavors of ice cream with chocolate crust and hot fudge! We saw families, other couples and a large party of friends while we were there. I highly recommend it. "

  • "Originally had a reservation at Duke's Sunday Brunch.... at the last minute decided we wanted something more casual and less expensive. We ended up at Sandy's and I am so happy we did! This restaurant was awesome! We had a nice table with a great beach view and the food was AMAZING! I highly recommend the Breakfast Burger!!! Walked out only spending about $50 (before tip) for a party of 4. We will definitely be back!"

  • "This was a special treat for our family and my wife and daughter for Mother's Day. This is the second year in a row we ahve chosen Sandy's for Mom's Day. Godd choice again. The menu selection was excellent and the food was awesome. Both my wife and daughter had a great time and enjoyed all that Sandy's had to offer. Service was good too."

  • "Prompt and friendly service. Nice view. Loud bar with the tv on during Mother's Day brunch - poor choice to leave tv on. They were screaming over the dumb basketball game. Food was tasty but portions are too small. I had a shrimp salad and had to request bread as I was still hungry. They should have added more lettuce at the very least. My relative had the mahi Mahi special and it was the smallest portion of fish I have ever seen served. They need to let up on their portion controls."

  • "5 of us ate at 630 reservatuons.. we were 15 min late .. they still got us a table within a few minutes.. service started slow. drinks took a little long ... everything else moved right along perfectly...Dessert took a little long... but well worth it ( bread pudding cake) That stuff is amazing!!! Food was great.. Popcorn shrimp was probably the most OK food of the night, all the entrees everyone loved. and the other appetizers were Superb. "

  • "My family and I went there for a Mother's Day buffet, but no buffet. I ordered the breakfast pizza, which I would not recommend. It was tasteless, crust was hard, and the pizza was cold. The others in my group kind of liked there meals, but they did not order the breakfast, so maybe the lunch menu is the way to go. "

  • "Had never been to Huntington Beach so I had to simply pick a spot to eat..... Everything was terrific ....food....service and location. I had the fish and chips and it was absolutely delicious !!"

  • "Was a fairly quiet night at Sandy's. Food was quite good; I enjoyed my sea bass with shrimp cous cous and Caesar salad. The service was maybe a little over eager, asking us pretty regualrly whether the food was "amazing". I'd tone that down a bit, although it is better than a totally uninterested server."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "First, I made the reservation to sit on the patio and enjoy the beach but they decided to sell the entire patio to a party that didn't use the whole patio. Our food was average at best and undercooked. Service was good and polite."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "I loved the atmosphere at this restaurant - casual and beachy. The menu was great - not too many options to choose from but at the same time was just enough variety of choices. However, the foods to me tasted nothing special. I believed I could probably have gone somewhere else and had the same thing which tasted better and costed much less. Although the server and staffs were friendly and did an awesome job while we were there, I am not sure I will go back to Sandy's again."

  • "Always a favorite, The menu is always varied and good. However do not frequent as often, as they have taken our most favorite things off the menu. Hope they return them to menu soon, as promised. Will check back fairly often to see…. and of course have a wonderful lunch or dinner. A great neighborhood restaurant with a terrific bar!"

  • "I have not been here since it was previously Chimayos and was pleasantly surprised. Ambiance was great for a business lunch meeting or an afternoon date. I don't know what the evening scene is like. The service was 5 star and the food was as well. I will definitely keep this on my list for a go to place and I am looking forward to trying breakfast and dinner as well."

  • "We love coming to Sandy's. The food is good and the view is amazing. Located "on the sand", next to HB Pier, Sandy's offers a casual place to dine and enjoy the beach scene. My wife and I are vegetarians, so we stick to to their Heirloom Tomato Stack or Veggie Burger which are both very good options. The service is always good and the staff is very friendly."
