Diner Reviews
  • "It must be good, We keep going back. We've been there a dozen times since it opened. This time I tried the baby back ribs.....fall off the bone good. The staff is always friendly."

  • "Loved my first time experience here (recommended by a few local Huntington Beach friends for my casual business lunch). Can't beat a table next to the beach with the strong waves coming in that day. We had great service throughout despite lingering to finish our business chat -- she still checked in and provided more water, etc. Loved my tuna sandwich done perfect with a light seared touch and the bread was super thin flat bread. It was a little tricky/messy to eat for business lunch -- but hey that's my fault for ordering a sandwich vs. a salad and it didn't prevent me of eating the whole thing anyway! My fellow diner loved his surf burger. Both clean plates. Will go back and enjoy bar scene with my BF soon!"

  • "It was all good except when we ordered coffee and tea; the decaf coffee tasted old and was not that hot, and the waitress brought a tea cup and bag, but no hot water. We had to ask for that after a several minute wait."

  • "We had a party of 12 with reservations. The restaurant is right on the beach, but we couldn't see the ocean due to an event tear down that made it feel like we were under a highway overpass under construction. We ordered and got appetizers fairly quickly, but 30 minutes after ordering dinner we were told that they were out of the special. The restaurant wasn't crowded (our reservation was at 8 PM), but it was almost 10 when we got dinner. My salmon was overdone, and others in the party were underwhelmed. The staff and our waitress were very friendly, but we were ready to leave by the time we ate. We weren't asked if we wanted dessert, and our wait wasn't acknowledged."

  • "My family and I eat here several times a year. Sandy’s has an interesting menu offering and several great vegetarian options for me. The food is almost always great. I say almost because two of the last four times eating there, my fries have been cold and old tasting. My daughters agreed but offered to share their perfectly cooked fries with me. When cooked well, they are one of my favorite fries! This visit, I only gave the service a “good” rating but that is because we had a newbie server. Nothing wrong with that but he didn’t have the quality nuances of service down yet that are prevalent throughout the rest of the great staff at Sandy’s. I’ll keep coming back, regardless!"

  • "Seven old high school friends gathered at Sandy's for a mini reunion after not seeing each other for 38 years! We were seated on the patio facing the US Open Surf competition and the whole experience was perfect. We enjoyed a delicious lunch while catching up on each other's lives and being catered to by a very attentive staff. They did not seem to mind our boisterous excitement during our 3 hour visit! I enjoyed a tuna sandwich that was scrumptious, and the watermelon martinis were tasty. Everyone was very pleased with their meals. The salads were large and looked delicious. This was the perfect place to hold this small, very fun and meaningful get together!"

  • "My wife and I went for an early dinner and watched the sunset. The food was excellent and the service was great. I highly recommend Sandy's. Duke's, upstairs, is owned by the same place and is also very good. The seafood offerings are fantastic both places, too!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "This place is sits right on the beach next to the Huntington Beach pier and has a great view with plenty of seating. The weekends get very busy here but we since I booked online our table was ready and the drinks are spot on. loved the Bloody Mary's just the amount of spice."

  • "Vibrant restaurant almost right on the sand in Huntington Beach. Our server, who was in training, could not have done a better. My three lady friends and I were there for a birthday celebration, and the server brought out the most delicious dessert (free) for all of us to share. The restaurants version of a "s'more" - best one of those I've ever tasted. Nice touch!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was cold, greasy & had to wait over 10 minutes for our food to be reheated. We had to ask for salt & pepper, bread & water. I waited so long for the salt & pepper by time it arrived I was already done with my salad. It was also very loud, I could barely hear my wife talking to me. The waited gave us a complimentary S'mores dessert because I think he knew we weren't happy. It cost $97, I've had better meals at Denny's & the food is always hot there."

  • "Overall we had a great dinner. The ceviche has a little too much lime. The polenta is a little too salty. But Jessica was really great. Love their bread!"

  • "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!"

  • "Sandy's is just below Duke's. It took us a few extra minutes to find it from the fee pay to park lot next to it. But that's what you get if you want to eat as close to the beach by the pier. The decor is nice but a noisy from the crowd around the bar which is in the center. Eating inside is better than eating outside you don't see the beach as well inside. We tried one of their combinations specials and found out that some of the fish items were missing. It took two waiters (which was not ours) and a manager to get this resolved. The food is good and they have a pretty good menu selection. Our free desserts were very good!"

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!"

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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. "
