We have eaten at the Sandbar on consecutive nights because of the great food and service! The first night we had a brand new server new to the restaurant, and she was excellent! My wife loved the seafood salad, and I had grouper. Both were cooked to perfection. The cheese grits were great too. Yes, it was noisy and very... More

Not tops on my list for dining atmosphere. Somewhere between a beach bar, like Dusty's Oyster Bar and a full restaurant. The food was excellent. Not many specials or happy hour, but I'd go there again for the food.

We are visiting Panama City Beach for the first time. We asked the front desk person to recommend restaurants. She recommended Sandbar. We went there for dinner tonight. We ordered one appetizer each because the menu was mostly fried items, which we do not eat. The service was poor. We were disappointed, we will not be returning.

I had grilled snapper filet which tasted fishy. The waitress stated it normally does like grouper? The sautéed squash was great but the cheese grits both of us sent back tasted off. My friend had steamed shrimp & New Orleans scallops platter which she found good but had better. I had a pecan bourbon martini which was very good!
