Sandbar Waterfront Grill invites you to enjoy this hidden waterfront gem! It is our absolute commitment to our employees, suppliers, guests, and the community at large that makes the Sandbar so unique.

Using local growers and suppliers as often as we can, we promise to tantalize your taste buds with our fantastic menu of favorites and some new menu items as well. While we are known for our perch specials, our wood burning oven pizzas have fast become another favourite. Our steaks, chicken, ribs and other new menu items guarantee there is something for everyone at the Sandbar!

Currently, due to restrictions surrounding covid-19, our largest table size is 8 and we are unable to combine tables to accomodate any larger sized groups.

Turkey was vey dry. Seemed probably day old. Salad was good & soup was good. Roll was so hard could not even break it. Stuffing ok. We were here last year & many years prior & Thanksgiving dinner was great. Portions (turkey) very small. For the price, dissatisfying. Apply pie was good.
Service was great. We had "Cole". Nice young man & very obliging.

Went for my husbands birthday..the hostess wished him a happy birthday as we entered and then the server did as well as soon as she came to our table. I ordered the crab wontons which were fantastic and also I had the clam chowder soup. The soup was one of best best ones I’ve had. My husband ordered the perch tacos which were delicious. I had the steak dinner which was ok. I knew it was a top sirloin so I wasn’t expecting 100% quality. The flavour was great but it was tough. Just a suggestion to maybe have a strip loin steak or ribeye on the menu instead. Everything else was wonderful and we will definitely be back!

We were very pleased with the ease of online reservations and the space between tables as well as the service. My perch dinner was very good. My husband ordered the pizza special however he felt the crust could have been cooked more and was not that pleased with it.

This was our first trip to the Sandbar since the pandemic. Our waitress was very informative, cheerful and the service was great. A limited menu was offered with a very nice selection. Everyone at our table was very satisfied. The food was delicious as always.
We will definitely be back.
Take care and stay safe

Used to love dining at the Sandbar especially for the perch, however, the last visit was not an enjoyable one. The perch was extremely greasy not like before and the waitress did not attend to us even though there were very few people in the restaurant.
