Sandy's Ratings and Reviews
The food was absolutely delicious! The servers were fabulous and went out of their way to get to know the name of the people in our large group. They were very accommodating to everyone. A wonderful experience for everyone, many people in our party commented on how great the entire dining experience was. We would definitely be back.
Went with a couple of friends who had never been there. Personnel was super friendly and the service was excellent. They have some interesting choices on the menu and all of us enjoyed the food. Our table on the patio was perfectly located with a lovely view of the beach and pier. We'll definitely be back.
The food was EXCELLENT from the appetizers thru the main courses we had!! The location of the restaurant, right on the beach overlooking the ocean was really great! The only thing I would suggest is, that if the restaurant knows that the dining is for an special occasion, i.e., birthday, anniversary; something along those lines, that they put a white table cloth, some candles, and flowers on the table, ESPECIALLY if it is for a birthday and of course anniversary. It just seems like it would make the dining experience that much more pleasurable and enjoyable for the couple(s) and families.
Dinner at Sandy's was a pleasant experience. Our server was very attentive and answered all of our questions about the menu. We found a good wine that they were serving by the glass. Our shrimp appetizer, salad sand our entrees were delicious.
We particularly like watching some college kids playing volleyball and several families out walking with their young children.
We make a point of dining at Sandy's on our yearly trip to Huntington. It is our favorite restaurant on the water.
We've been enjoying Sandy's great view, with food to match for a couple of years. On our last visit, right away we noticed the food was different. The normally delicious fish tacos were dry and the sauce had changed from a spicy green to a really spicy yellow. Waiter told us the restaurant had just been sold to Fred's and would become more like it - more televisions, (isn't the ocean enough?) more raucaus, younger crowd. Sad to hear; one more reason not to come downtown HB any more. Back to Pacific City
We recently celebrated our anniversary on the patio and the staff went above and beyond. Sandy's is where we had our first date, so going back for our anniversary just made sense. :-) They included a card and dessert which made it even more special. Thanks!
Great place for a Sunday lunch. The location is great for people watching and the food never disappoints. I had the fish tacos and they were the perfect blend of fresh and spicy. There was a small side of salsa on the dish that was a magical blend of avocado and jalapeno which made my tacos sing! My husband ordered the Ahi tuna sandwich, and was pleasantly surprised by Sandy's interpretation which included smoked bacon, a balsamic aioli to die for on flat bread. All in all a delicious meal in a beautiful location. Next time we will order brunch!
Fantastic dinner! Entertained a friend who just moved here from TX. We were seated on the patio and had the wonderful view. Service was fantastic and sorry I can't remember his name. Outstanding! We had the filet and ahi tuna which were delicious and flavorful. My friend had the shrimp pasta, which he devoured. Will definitely return. Only negative was that there was a private party on one end and children were allowed to run around the restaurant by inattentive parents. Take your kids to Ruby's or get a sitter. Geez! Paying for the ambience, food and view without your children present. Just sayin'. Overall, great job Sandy's! Thanks for a fine evening out.
Unfortunately our service was very slow. We got our cocktails and then we were forgotten about. We asked finally if bread was served with the meal as we were starving. The waitress said she would put in an order but still no bread. We had to ask a second time and finally got it.
We are a group of non complainers but this was really beyond slow. After telling our waitress that I was really disappointed in the service our meals came. She knew her service should have been better so a complimentary dessert was served for us all to share. Bottom line we just wanted good service because your restaurant is very nice. I have been there before and service was far better so I had no hesitation to make this reservation. There were empty tables as other people had been served and finished and they arrived after us.
Sandy's is right on the beach so there is a good view of beach activities and sunset through the Huntington Beach Pier. Food was good. The scallop appetizer was good. The flat Iron Steak with Chimichuri Sauce was a little disappointing. The sauce was good, but overpowered the taste of the steak. The kale salad was very good.
Sandy's is always a great "go to" place right on the boardwalk in Huntington Beach. It's much more quiet than Duke's above, which is perfect for romantic date's. Food is outstanding, reasonably priced and very quick from the kitchen. The valet out front is only $7.00 with a receipt from Sandy's, which is the way to go during the busy summer season! Bar is experienced with all the favorite's available. Always a great experience here
Simply awesome evening. Made reservation and asked for a table with a great view. Informed them we were celebrating a 50th birthday. They had a Birthday Card and PERFECT table waiting for us. The ceviche appetizer was fresh and delicious. My wife had the Filet and I had the
Sea Bass. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and the Sea Bass had a pecan crust that perfectly complimented the dish. The dessert they brought out was their SIGNATURE S'MORE
chocolate graham cracker brownie, chocolate ice cream, marshmallow fluff pile of awesomeness. This was a perfect ending to great dinner. Thank You so much to the Sandy's staff for a great evening!
I brought my family here to celebrate the end of summer. Brooklyn was our server and she was amazing! She had spot on wine recommendations, she took great care of my kids, and was very attentive as each course of the meal progressed. The food was great too. I'd eat the ceviche every day of the week if I could.
We went to Sandy's for my dad's 80th birthday. They were able to accommodate 9 of us and our table was great. The server was attentive and helpful, which is hard with a big party. It's a great location right by the beach. Everyone liked their food except the fussiest foodies at our table who had some small gripes like the thickness of the cut of the fish. There was a good range of options for 80-year-old dad (meatball pizza!) to younger foodies. The server brought a birthday dessert which was nice, but I would have suggested pulling one of us aside to set it up in some special way rather than bringing it to table unlit, lighting it in place and saying "this is our birthday dessert." It was totally fine though and nice enough for Dad. My only small quibble is that it's VERY loud. Dad had a hard time hearing or talking to anyone so we were a little isolated in small conversations. But we got to step out to the beach and get some nice photos, and I really liked my food a lot. I'd go back there any time. It seemed like there were quite a few bigger groups there so I'd recommend it for a group outing or a regular dinner.
