Today Charles went exploring and found The Sandbar Tiki and Grille restaurant on Manasota Key
He liked that they have special dog bowls, just for him. The restaurant is right across from the beach and he loved that he can lay in the cool sand to stretch out.
The Sandbar has live music in their tiki hut many afternoons and evenings. Today the band was The Lazy Daisy’s with a mix of folky pop music. The restaurant has a very Jimmy Buffet vibe to it with many of the picnic tables placed in the power white sand. For chilly evenings they have fire pits to huddle around
We started with the Spinach Artichoke dip. It came out piping hot with fresh baked bread and crispy chips on the side
For an entree all had the shrimp burger. I’ve never found this type of burger at any other restaurant and it happens to my favorite dish at The Sandbar. The burger has succulent gulf shrimp fashioned in a circle to form a blackened shrimp burger. The burger comes with lettuce, tomato, dill pickle, onions and a side of remoulade sauce. The sweet potato fries were lightly dusted with a cinnamon sugar.
This beachside restaurant also has water access and views of the expansive canal.
Charles gives this restaurant four paws 🐾🐾. He loves being right across the beach with the warm breezes blowing in as you dine. He also likes that nearly each table has a fan with a soft water mist to keep you cool in the dog days of summer.
