We had a great evening out to celebrate 2 birthdays. We had everything from perch to fish tacos to pasta and everyone enjoyed their meals. Our server did a wonderful job. We will definitely come back!

We were so impressed with the food...servive...everything. The steak special was amazing which I had and my husband had the Philly Pizza...which was equally awesome!

Our Server was most wonderful, welcoming and very thorough ensuring our first time there was perfect and of course we will not hesitate to return

Thank you!! Till next time!!!

It was my first time eating at Sandbar with my fiance. You've exceeded our expectations. The only thing I would advise is servicing your customers within 5 minutes of being seated. We waited awhile with enough time to know what we wanted to order before she offered us water and specials. Overall, great place!

all in all a great night with friends. We had made a reservation for 630, due to a party having a great time we didn't get our table until 7 But Lisa our waitress made up for it. An amazing talented employee made us feel at home and welcome, entertaining and delightful - Lisa you are amazing...

`the only issue my wife and I had, we booked for" main dining area only'...and they wanted to put us in the BAR AREA.... We had a table where there was a little too much traffic and a child actually ran into our table. This was disturbing to us . THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT.....

It was my husband’s birthday celebration. We had a delightful time and delicious dinner. The perch was the best we have ever had and two of the guests had jambalaya which they really enjoyed. The restaurant was completely booked and the service was still impeccable. Our server Veronica was fantastic and had great attention to detail.

My husband and I had a delightful night. We had a table by the water. Cozy atmosphere. Food was outstanding, best perch in Essex county! Lightly breaded, not greasy. A little pricey, but definitely worth it!

My husband and I went for dinner. The food was great - my husband had the perch and I had the Mahi Mahi. Portions are generous so great value. We had a reservation - which I recommend as on Fridays and Saturday they are very busy. Only one hiccup - they wanted to seat us at table right at the Front door. The restaurant wasn't full when we arrived. I asked if we could sit by the window but was told they were all reserved so I said how about the wall. After a few minutes they seated us by the Window! I think they could be better at this part of their service.

Had the butternut squash ravioli special. Sent it back as ravioli was undercooked. Staff very apologetic.
Second order not much better. Still undercooked. Received free dessert. I eat here at least once a month. Will for sure go back, but would not order ravioli again.

Server was very sweet and personable, when my Dad accidentally spilled his beer staff was very helpful and understanding.
The food was great and served quick and hot even though restaurant was very busy!

Sit out on the patio under the awning. The ambiance is awesome, feels like you’re on vacation!

Totally recommend the mussels marinara, ESPECIALLY if you like garlic!

Always like the Sandbar, food is great. Service this time was slow and it seems some groups are served earlier ... not sure if food choice or better waitresses....

Will still go back and chalk this one off to a bad night

Overall, good place for food

I was very disappointed to hear upon arrival that the musical entertainment that we were specifically going there to hear had been cancelled because of weather. This was especially disappointing when I had been assured on the phone that they would play indoors in the case with of inclement weather.

Delicious meals, but pricey. Beautiful waterfront ambience. Great service. Convenient. Frequently long wait for food, due to high capacity.
