Good food. Fun atmosphere. Nice outdoor heated seating.
Great spot on State with a killer outdoor dining room. Food was great and very reasonably priced. Definitely on the list for a return trip
Sandbar has been our go-to Mexican restaurant for the past 5 years we've lived here. We were devastated when they had a fire and ended up being closed for several months. Thrilled to have them back open! Dustin is our favorite waiter! Great guy.
Ate their for dinner. Sick the next day.
After 6 years spent in Mexico, I am usually disappointed by the Mexican restaurants whose food is nothing like what you eat in Mexico. But this restaurant is different and makes tasty real Mexican food!
We used a $20 Open Table certificate, part of the problem. The restaurants were limited to 3 in Santa Barbara and 2 more 60 miles away. We decided to take a chance on this one. Even the bar (it is a bar after all) wasn't very good with flat tonic in our drinks. The food really is terrible, fortunately not very expensive. It would be lovely if Open Table let the diner choose where to use the certificate.
Delicious food - HUGE portions! Great chips and salsa.
Friendly service and great food! We will definitely go back!!
I'd driven or walked past this place innumerable times. Was happy to see they took reservations and was able to reserve a table on a day when everything near the beach had a 90 minute wait (hard pass on that). Food was delicious and chairs were comfy. Lived up to my expectations!
Everything was fine, they were busy, our food took a while, was expensive and never asked if we wanted another drink when they were empty (water and beer) they just took the glass of beer and walked away. We wanted more beer but didn't see the waiter until we were asking for the check. My Q salad was good but pricy, it came with steak. It tasted good and was well cooked but was a little too expensive for the quality. Wish they had hot salsa. Cool place and odd fun outfits but had better of everything.
Delicious! It's been two years since our last Santa Barbara stay and Sandbar was very better than I remembered it.
This is a hot spot in Santa Barbara! I love the outdoor seating and the heaters or fire pit when it's a bit chilly! The chips and salsa are addicting and the food is top notch. You can eat your typical Mexican dishes or even order a more Vegan meal. I like the option.
Good food, lively atmosphere and reasonable prices.
Vorab das Positive: das Ambiente, die Gratischips mit Salsa und der Quinoasalat..
Dann hörts aber auf..
Das Wasser stank, der bestellte Bacardi-Cola war durchsichtig mit einem Tropf Cola, dafür viel zu viel Eis, als hätten die das noch nie gemacht..
Der Burrito war ganz ok, aber geschmeacklich kein Erlebnis, auch nicht die schlecht zerkleinerte Guacamole...
Hinzu kam ein Kellner der mehr demotiviert als sonst was war...
My first time coming to santa barbra with my boyfriend and everything was great it was our first time at the restaurant and he enjoyed the food and the game was playing so that made him even more excited. Great customer service
