    We waited forever to just see a waiter. After we ordered our drinks and food We wanted to order another round of drinks but no one came around. Had to find our own utensils too. Waiter apologized and said they were very busy but someone should have at least come around to fill our water or give us silverware.

    We had reservations for 5:00 pm and arrived about 15 minutes early. There was no hostess, so we asked a server where we should sit. She responded with “choose anywhere over there” on the “restaurant” side away from the bar area. We chose a table and a few minutes after we sat, another couple did the same. Five minutes later a different server came over and greeted them, left menus, and walked away. He returned a few minutes later, took their drink orders and left, clearly seeing us at our table. Fast forward ten minutes, their drinks had been delivered, the server still ignored us, and my husband had mentioned to one of the bartenders that we were still waiting where we had been told to be seated. After 25 minutes, a boat had docked, a different server stepped up to it to take their order, and we left. We have been coming to Pompano for several years, and even had a very expensive dinner New Year’s Eve this year next door at The Rusty Hook. Don’t waste your time at Sands Harbor.

    Sands Harbor is a great find - just the right vibe - casual, not a crazy scene like Shooters - darn good food - approachable - good service. A little bit honky tonk / Old Florida - but on a high note. Priced right too. The hostess was overwhelmed the night we arrived - but it all turned out great. Super apps - try the tuna app, the guac and the boom boom shrimp. Book the South Dock for pool-side / super waterfront dining - best ambience. Our server, Nick, was great.

    Went for the NYE 2023 experience. It was so fun! Food was amazing, good drinks and the service was great. Thank you Nick. You did a great job! The water front and fresh air was so perfect. We will be back for sure. Our only complaint would be how loud the music was. We did ask if it could be turned down, however, it couldn’t be done. We all had to talk so loud, my throat hurts today.

    Great restaurant. We sat near the water and watched the boats go by. Our waiter, Nick, was awesome. He recommended the Bang Bang Shrimp, Blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich and the Swordfish Skewers. All were excellent. We have another favorite restaurant!!

    This date night was one to remember, we had the best waiter Nick and a perfect view. We could have stuck our toes in the water we were so close… but really it was perfect. The weather played a good part to allowing us to enjoy our meal outside in the middle of summer. The food was excellent, every detail was cooked perfectly and Nick served with a smile every time he approached the table. So happy with the service and food, we’ll be back for sure! Thank you.

    I waited 15 mins for the staff to acknowledge me so that I could be seated, one employee looked at me 3 times and never walked over, instead she continued closing one section of the restaurant. Another employee at the Bar looked over at us and when we made eye contact he turned his head and acted as if we were not standing there waiting to be seated. A 3rd employee was so confused when we asked him questions about being seated. This was by far the worst experience I have ever witnessed at a restaurant. And I will be reporting this to the BBB.

    I took my mom here for Mother’s Day and she absolutely loved it. We normally drive all the way to Miami for special occasions but we wanted to try somewhere closer. This find is such a hidden gem! It was very quite and lowkey. They had a special Mother’s Day brunch menu which was delicious. We went at 11:30 which was not busy at all but by 1pm which was the time we left, it gets a bit crowded. The restaurant is right on the water with an amazing view. Would definitely go back!

    They tried to do a Cinco de Mayo themed menu and sadly they substituted Mexican foods with cheap, generic and awful substitutes. Nacho cheese from a machine as the queso dip. Boo. Stick to their regular menu.

    It was Boca Bash weekend and Sunday night at 6:30. The restaurant should not have taken reservations for high top tables in the bar area. We had a party of 4 and there were only 2 chairs. The hostess had to search around for chairs for us to be seated. We got off to a very bad start and people around us who had taken the chairs were rude. Once chairs were brought to our table and we got settled in the service was wonderful. Would only recommend during an off time.

    They recently renovated the Luxor patio bar/restaurant and it’s so nice! The location is great , you can eat lunch and watch the boats go by with a cocktail. Food isn’t outstanding but still worth the view on a day with great weather!

    It started fine and we were with my 87 yo mother. It started to rain and the staff were minimally responsive. I went to the restroom and saw our food come out and the waitress said leave the food there and grab there appetizers. So overall glad the rain storm came and we had to leave the restaurant as we were drenched.

    The service and setting were fine. We ordered fish tacos that appeared to be out of a package and were not tasty. Even the side dishes of fries and onion rings were tasteless. Poor value for the cost. Would not return there given the quality of the food and the extremely limited menu.

    This is my second time eating here and I was surprised that the menu was smaller than the first time. Only appetizers, salads and hand heads were available. No entrees at all. We ordered fish sandwiches with fries (fries are extra). The drinks were good (a bit expensive but you pay for the view). Next time I’m going to try the other restaurant attached to the hotel. If you’re looking for a light meal not actual dinner with a great view then go here.

    When we made our reservation the on-line reservation system said there were no outside seating reservations available - only inside seating reservations. On arrival, half of the outdoor seating was available - none of the outdoor open tables were reserved for reservations. Extremely slow kitchen and bar. Menu has been reduced to 1 page with minimal number of entrees - old menu has been minimalized significantly. Used to be one our favs, but after this visit I'm not sure I'll go back. Table next to ours got up - all of them, they went to the host, they asked to speak to the manager and all boisterously complained about the service and delay in getting their food.
