The Sand Bar Restaurant is one of the most widely recognized restaurants in the entire area amongst locals AND tourists! Ever wonder why? Well, we have found out the reason. Featuring mouthwatering seafood, pristine views, incredible weather, and hands-on service, it is a no-brainer that The SandBar Restaurant is one of the top options for families and friends alike for a dining opportunity unlike any other. Feast your eyes on the food, and the sunset, during your evening(s) spent here.
If you want to come here for lunch during your time in the Sunshine State, the Raw Bar is the best way to start the meal! Check out the Aguachile Ceviche with cobia, avocado, pickled onions, plantains, and Anna Maria Bake House’s hemp crackers to share with your friends. You can also try the Oyster of the Day or the Peel and Eat Shrimp for a fresh start to the meal.
For those who want to come here for a fine-dining evening or a date night with their partner, you won’t be disappointed with the dinner menu. We recommend starting with the sandbar Smoked Fish dip with pickled vegetables, red onion, capers, Anna Maria Bake house crackers, and enticing spices. Another great dish to split with the table is the Two Docks Clams with bacon, tomato, garlic, white wine, cream, and herb oil.
If you want to try and stick with your diet during your stay on Anna Maria Island, getting a soup or salad is a perfect, well-rounded start to the dinner. We recommend trying the Burrata with arugula, heirloom tomatoes, and basil balsamic glaze.
For the main dish, you can’t go wrong with the Chargrilled Octopus with achiote spices, aji verde, corn relish, and Bahamian rice. Another tasty dish is New York Strip with chargrilled steak, caviar butter, French fries, and braised greens.
Do you want something a bit more casual to eat during your family-friendly dinner by the water? We love the Sand Bar Restaurant Burger with spicy Pimento cheese, fried green tomatoes, tomato jam, brioche, and French fries as a savory side!
You can also get the braised greens, wild mushrooms with thyme, hush puppies with corn and sweet onion, or cheddar cheese grits as filling sides to split with the table. Wash any one of these shareable sides down with an ice-cold craft beer or specialty cocktail as you watch the sun go down over the bright blue water, feel the cool breeze on your face, and plan the rest of your fun-filled trip in the Sunshine State.
