    Everything was very good. The chairs were a little uncomfortable, and the end of the dock seating was somewhat wide open empty space. A little awkward. The linens gave lint on black clothing. Menu was a little pricey, but the food came in reasonable amount of time and portions were a nice surprise. Our server was great, the Hostess was super, the drinks and food were great . The music was very very loud however… it was ok for a fun Sunday, but we were seated close to a speaker so it was difficult to have conversations. Overall very nice. Will go back .

    We had reservations to dine and was seated at a table with no umbrella. The seats are real small and uncomfortable. The service was subpar. Drinks were late and not cold due to no fault of the bar but waiter just forgot to deliver My recommendation is to just sit at bar and order food and drinks. You will get great service period!

    What a beautiful place to dine on the water. the hostess was extremely outgoing and pleasant although we had a reservation we did not have to wait more than two minutes to be seated. It was awesome to see boaters pull up to the restaurant dockside, which was a form of slight entertainment. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

    Love this location. All food is delicious and good portions. We had the mahi tacos, beef skewers, & Cajun chicken. Krystal was a great server also. Attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We were sat by the pool and there were 5 or so kids playing Marco Polo, but it wasn’t too bad.

    I thought our server Nadia(sp) did an excellent job. I do however remember seeing something about each person on my party getting a free drink when I booked this on open table but that never came up during our dinner. I absolutely love the way things are set up out there and had a good time with my team. I would recommend trying to expand your menu slightly as it is somewhat limited in my opinion.

One free bar drink for 1st time dining experience. The portion sizes were good. It was extremely windy so we didn’t get to experience the celebratory sparklers with our dessert.

    We had a great time having brunch. The restaurant is part of a hotel so there will be people around and in the pool. We sat by the water beautiful view of the boats and yachts. We had the huevos rancheros spicy yet savory. There was a DJ playing music great selection so the environment was pleasant. I’ll definitely come back!

    I’ve been to Sands Harbor a few times. It’s always a great time with the waterfront setting, live music, and amazing staff. I recommend it all the time to folks I meet. My last visit in particular was outstanding due to our server Steve going out of his way for my two boys. Well he back! As always.

    Loved the setting and our server Nadia. The peel and eat shrimp needed some flavor as Old Bay and was a little skimpy. The Mahi tacos were very, very good. The Greek salad dinner salad was small and they forgot the salad. More salad on it would make it worth the value. However, Nadia made sure she took good care of us. Definitely would go back.
