I love discovering funky restaurants that serve good food! Sandy Hook fits that description perfectly.
I've been looking for a restaurant that has outstanding crab cakes, and while Sandy Hook serves up a good crab cake, I wouldn't call it outstanding. The fact that they offer crab cakes made 3 ways is interesting. I tried the Imperial Crab Cakes and thought that they were very good. I wasn't too sure at first, but then they grew on me. I'm looking forward to going back and trying a different style next time. I am a french fry junkie and thought that their fries could have used some salt on them when they came out of the fryer.
My husband had the ribs and didn't like the fact that they left the connective tissue on the backside. He enjoyed the ribs but says that he really prefers dry rub ribs and these are cooked with a sauce on them.
We started the meal with a cup of the Conch Chowder which was very, very good! I hadn't had conch chowder in a long time and I will definitely order that again! We finished the meal with Key Lime Pie which was velvety and had a subtle lime flavor that was different than other Key Lime pie that we've had before which are very "limey".
We enjoyed watching the birds flying back and forth from the big Australian Pine near the restaurant and seeing the Mullet jumping all over. The view is very nice and if you're lucky enough to get a window table it's great!
So far, this has been the one restaurant on the water that has good food. The others we have tried have had a nice water front location and views but the food has not been that good. We will definitely be returning to Sandy Hook!
