Stellar, outstanding and amazing as always!
Food is delicious and good portions. Service is stellar (I’m a former waitress so have very high standards) and management knows their stuff (very charming manager stopped by our table to see how things were going / love that!) and the place is BEAUTIFUL! High ceilings and beachy vibe.
We will be back!

Excellent, safe experience. So cozy inside and very spaced out between diners. Our server spoke as if he owned the restaurant - he was so knowledgeable and helpful and always on point. This was a special evening out.

Sandbar is a local favorite, and we also go a few times per year. Food and drinks are fantastic, ambiance great, and they've always done a little something special for us when we go for a special occasion. Never had a bad experience, it is a great restaurant!
