We've been to lunch here many times, and also to see the Patriots games. The fish sandwich with fries or salad is terrific. Huge filet well cooked lightly blackened is a sure pleaser, and the waitstaff are the best. Can be very noisy, but that's no more than you would expect. It's a local sports bar and hangout. If you...

Met some friends for a drink at the Sandbar. It turned into dinner. What a neat little place to hang out on a Friday night. Thanks Sandbar

We've eaten here several times because the fish platters are very good and the value before 6 PM can't be beat. It is definitely not for anyone wanting an elegant dining experience, but if you don't mind...or even enjoy...the sports pub atmosphere where locals hang out, it is worth the effort to find it. They cook the fish any way... More

We visited the Sand Bar several times during our vacation to Marco Island last April. Its kinda tucked away off the beaten path, but well worth the search. Great Food, Great Prices, Great Atmosphere! We were treated like regulars after a couple visits. Wait staff new our names and drinks when we walked in. Kinda felt like Norm at Cheers!... More

This was our second visit. Huge screen TV's a full bar, Very casual atmosphere and the food is delicious. Fingers and Toes (LOL) are fish and chips and are really, really yummy. Good size menu to choose from and a little pickle barrel on each table. What is not to like?

This is a bar. Expect it to be noisy. You have to lean close to have a conversation. We had a pound of shrimp and some freshly shucked oysters. The oysters were good and cold. The shrimp was average. An unexpected perk are the two glasses with tongs that are filled with pickle chips and peppers. It's a little off... More

We found this place a couple years ago and revisited this fall. It appears there are a lot of local customers there for good food, good service and a baseball game. We think the food is very good for a sports bar and reasonably inexpensive.

Never a bad meal at The Sand Bar. Great food, good bar, and a place to watch the game as well. From the Blackened Prime Rib sandwich to the Grouper Reuben to burgers and wings and the friendliest staff on the island.
