First of all, I hate to give bad reviews. But, I was not aware of the "age" requirement to just eat until we arrived. Now for one, every review from our AIRBNB host, to the website looks and sounds good. However, when you try to...More

Sandbar is an eclectic, noisy, modern pub with club atmosphere. Great drinks, very good service and excellent chow. It was an obvious popular taco night and the place was abuzz, with a DJ playing during dinner hours. The tacos were very good, the Philly sandwich...More

Ordered fish tacos and they were even better than the Mexican food we had for lunch in a reknown old Town restaurant. Great atmosphere, staff was great. Will definitely be returning. A must visit if you want a hang out. Enjoy!!

We have been to Sandbar many times and it doesn't disappoint. Food selections are huge and very good, the bloody Marys are well worth the trip

Test your margarita skills on the margarita mixing bike on the rooftop bar! Fish tacos, guacamole, salsa, and chips are all awesome, too!

Another hyped-up venue that will disappoint you. We visited on a weekday morning: the place was almost empty yet it took ages to place our order. Drinks were average but the waiter kept coming back to convince us to order more. The hyped-up tacos came...More

Stopped in for a quick dinner on a Wednesday night when the place was pretty quiet. Waited for some time to get a beer, then waited more time to order food. The tacos were spectacular and came quickly but the service was poor. Slow and...More
