The extensive dinner and lunch menus offer something for everyone from fresh seafood and steaks to appetizers, burgers, flatbreads and salads. With our original menu that is locally sourced whenever possible and vast selection of California wines and craft beers, Sandy’s celebrates all that is authentically Californian. California is served.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Parking is too expensive, Service is not that good, Food is too salty. It is not the place to recommend."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "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."

  • "We had a fabulous dinner at sunset to celebrate a 50th birthday. Got a window seat, had great service and the food was fabulous! Oh and so was dessert!! We highly recommend Sandy's for lunch, drinks or dinner."

  • "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!"

  • "You can't beat Sandy's for location on a beautiful day in So Cal. Love the food, too. Considering all that, the breakfast was also reasonably priced."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Had all the seafood anyone could want and it was all delicious. Mussels, crab, scallops, shrimp, and the catch of the day. Beer list is good and they carry some craft beers. Wife had a martini but said it was really weak in alcohol."

  • "A spur of the moment lunch and it was great watching all the activity on the boardwalk and beach!"

  • "On a return trip to Huntington Beach, we had lunch at Sandy's with our family friends. Our waiter was great- wonderful recommendations on the menu. The setting is fun for all. Enjoyed watching the beach scene and the many volleyball games!"

  • "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."

  • "Great setting...awesome service. All of our meals were great. Cannot beat s'more dessert."

  • "Our waitress was really nice But food took awhile. Dirty plates sat and by the time I got my second drink we had finished. The drink took over 20 minutes. My boyfriends drink was wrong. Food great and the waitress you could tell was just busy."

  • "We held a company dinner for six. Had requested outside but were told it had been booked for a large group. However, I noticed others were on the patio not part of any large group. We were seated by the restrooms. Not my favorite place to sit. The service was excellent and the food even better. We ordered appetizers and a variety of items off the menu. Everything was very tasty."

  • "Had ribs--fantastic; had tomato, mushroom stack--fantastic, desserts--fantastic. We intend to return with friends for happy hour. But poorly-trained wait staff made our visit less than memorable."

  • "I booked Sandy's for Valentine's Day for my husband & myself. When we arrived, ( 7 min early), we were told we had to wait a few minutes, which was fine until 2 other couples came in and were seated by the window, on the patio with great views and NO reservations...meanwhile, we were left waiting and finally seated at a table for 4, in the middle of the room, facing the bright sun..I had asked for a table with a nice view in my on-line reservation, and the nicer tables were given to younger people, (who would probably spend way less than we would have...their loss. We went upstairs to Duke's (one of our favorite's) and were seated without reservations,, at a nice table with an ocean view, excellent wine, appetizer. food & awesome service."

  • "The noise level was almost unbearable and found myself almost shouting across our table to talk. The food was not worth even half the price. My dish was room temperature and had a bland side of steamed potatoes and green beans. I felt like I was at my grandma's house for dinner. Dessert choices were a joke. The whole menu might sound good at first but the cooking style and quality suffered in every way. I ended up having leftovers at home to satisfy my hunger. Go for a drink and the view but go elsewhere for food. Go to Duke's instead. Much, much, much better."

  • "Enjoying great food, drinks and friends. We were there for lunch on a Saturday and had an awesome time. The food was very good and they have an enjoyable beer and cocktail selection. They have a nice emphasis on California beers which was fun. The ceviche and fish tacos were very good. Make reservations and use valet parking ($6 is a steal!) We can't wait to come back"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was good, but it certainly wasn't worth the four-star prices on the menu. The mixed seafood plate wasn't as good as the same one you can get at Red Lobster, but it was $12 more. It's a nice restaurant and would likely be one of the most popular in SoCal if the prices matched the quality."

  • "We Had the best time. Unforgetable especially because I got proposed. Want to thank everyone at Sandys for the best time."

  • "We didn't have a reservetion for Valentines Day...we made a reservation on Open Table and thought we'd give it a try... The food was great, and the service was prompt and friendly. This is a kid / family friendly atmosphere...a little on the loud side. We will definitely return..."

    Dined on 7/25/2013
  • "Good food (not great), excellent service, but ridiculously expense. For a family of 4, with one of the more inexpensive bottles of wine, the total came to $185 plus tip!!! There is absolutely no way this meal was worth this kind of money. I would never consider eating here again. The owners need to come back to reality. I've eaten far better dinners on the beach in Maui for less cost. Very few people in the restaurant on a Saturday night... I wonder why..."

  • "this was a long lunch with friends. The food was good and the location excellent. The lunch menu and prices were more reasonable than our previous dinner experience when we found it rather pricy. Lunch was very good however and you can't beat the beach location!"

  • "We made reservations for 7 pm on Christmas Eve. Even though the restaurant closed at 7 we were not rushed and had a very relaxed and enjoyable time. The servers were very knowledgable about the menu and since it was the first time we had eaten there it definitely helped us choose our meals. The food was delicious!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "We very much enjoyed the sunset and view of the pier. We celebrated a birthday and the food, wine and service added to the special occasion. We have been to Sandy's before and this time was even better, our server stayed with us as we started with wine and appetizers and moved to another table for dinner. High praise for this visit."

  • "We drove all the way from Santa Monica, so were really disappointed with the room. The food and wait staff were wonderful, but the restaurant is more suited to a casual beach meal. It's a shame because the food was excellent."
