For some of the most relaxing and picturesque beachfront dining that you can find on Anna Maria Island, be sure to reserve at least one dinner at the Sandbar Restaurant.
This beautiful Anna Maria Island restaurant is one of the island’s longest running establishments and often the preferred location to host community events, weddings, corporate events, and other get-togethers.
The refreshing atmosphere of being right on the beach along with the extraordinary architecture, relaxing lighting, superb food, service and ambiance all combine to make The Sandbar an authentic Anna Maria favorite for family vacations or any trip here.
A spacious covered deck to dine and watch the sunset on
The Sandbar Restaurant is very pleasant to visit around sunset time, as you’ll be able to choose a seat on the covered outdoor deck and watch the sun set on the ocean while sipping your favorite drink.
It’s really hard to beat the experience of sitting out on the deck and dining here, and that alone draws many people return. You can also choose to sit indoors in a very elegant and well-decorated dining room, but it’s best reserve that option for your second visit!
The food quality is the main factor that makes The Sandbar one of Anna Maria Island’s best and highest rated restaurants. The food is consistently good, and the menu incorporates locally caught ingredients with creative dishes that entice any seafood lover. They take their food very seriously just as you would expect at any top tier Anna Maria Island restaurant.
The menu offers a perfect balance of ingredient quality with price whether you stop by for lunch, brunch or dinner. You can also order your meal to go if you so choose. Some of the entrée choices include chicken, shrimp, fish or pork tacos, fish, burgers, sausage sandwiches, lobster roll, steak burger, chicken or veggie sandwiches, shrimp or softshell crab po’boys, oysters, stone crabs, and salads.
A lunch menu includes specialties such as grouper, fried shrimp, fish or scallops, chicken and waffles, crab cakes, or stuffed shrimp. The menu is very seafood focused as you can tell but there are a few land fare items to satisfy those who are in the mood for it.
