I have been going out to eat on the island here at SandBar Tiki & Grille for a few years now. Their food and drink options are the best. The staff do a great job taking care of the patrons. I personally enjoy the various craft beer choices they have. The wings are by far my favorite. The portion sizes more than fair and generous. The indoor & outdoor seating is a great balance. Live music and games for the kids outdoors in the sand. You must give this place a try, you will not regret it. The prices are mid range, not cheap and not expensive. Just right in my book.
Update: we had Stephanie this evening for our New Years eve dinner and she was great. The friendly service, awesome food and drinks along with the atmosphere keep bringing us back!! Awesome place! Everything was fantastic from the food to the service. Even got to play corn hole on the sand.
Went to the Sandbar last night for a special occasion (gender reveal). Big disappointment!! This was surprising because my husband and I have been coming since 2018. We don’t frequent as often because we live about an hour away but we were making the drive and were so exited to go back like old times. We have spent past anniversary’s there etc. Last night we were with a large party and when we walked up to our party they pointed us to the last open table they grouped near each other. The table was still dirty but no big deal. We took it upon ourselves to clean the table off. This is when we were rudely told by Emily, the waitress working in our section, that she didn’t know how long it would be for us to get food and drinks because she didn’t know we were with the party and just doesn’t know who is going to serve us. I explained that we were with the same party. Then a second server, who was just as rude, started arguing with her over who was going to serve our table! Right in front of us! I’m not sure if we sat in the wrong section but if that’s the case please just communicate that as we spent the entire time wondering what WE did wrong to be treated this way. We could tell they were frustrated and overwhelmed so we just let it go. Again. This event wasn’t about us and we tried our best to just move on. After 15 min Emily came back to order our drinks. I have never in my whole life been treated the way me and my husband were last night. Part of our party caught a glimpse of what was going on so they waved us over to sit at their picnic table hoping it would help everyone out. We didn’t want to upset our server any further or make things more difficult but wanted to interact and celebrate with our party so we went and sat with them. The entire experience after that was down hill. Numerous people in our party were appalled with the way we were treated. Any word we spoke to this girl she was nothing but nasty. It took 20 minutes for drinks, over an hour for food, rude servers and feeling as if we are inconveniencing you while we are paying customers who drove over an hour to come here? Never again. Quite honestly if my husband wasn’t a diabetic and needed to eat I would have left. My husband and I both respect hospitality workers and are never ones to complain let alone take the time to leave a bad review but last night was just unacceptable. When it came time for me to order food I passed. Sad because last night was supposed to be special. Take your hard earned money elsewhere.
It was a busy night but literally took 25 minutes to get our drinks at the bar. When they know they will be busy due to a great band, they need more servers and bartenders. Maybe a special set up for just beer to give the bar a break on simple things. It does have a great relaxing atmosphere and nice view on slower nights.
Tried the Grilled Shrimp burger, island style. It was very enjoyable. A nice compliment of flavors. My wife had the brisket sandwich. The meat was tender and nicely roasted with good flavor. She enjoyed the they're site made barbeque sauce on the side. We sat outside and enjoyed a good live musician performing a variety of cover songs from the past. It was a nice evening with a gentle breeze .
