I go to The SandBar Tiki & Grille everytime I visit my family down in Florida!! The laid back atmosphere is fantastic, friendly staff, great food and live music, love it!! It was crowded during this visit as it was during spring break, but we had no wait for our table. Crowd was friendly. Our waitress was excellent! I really enjoyed the music too!I had the pulled pork sandwich last time, along with one of many great cocktails offered and it was great! They have a children's menu with highchairs available so my daughter really enjoyed their mac & cheese while playing with the coloring page and crayons they supplied!The location can't be beat, as it's just steps away from the beautiful beach! Great place to enjoy dinner and a drink with family and then watch the beautiful gulf coast sunset!Highly recommend!!(I've added photos from 3 different visits)

Super fun! Not good for a quick bite, but why would you want to simply stop in when you can hang out and have a great time?! The singers aren't that great, but the band certainly is. There is dancing and dining and fantastic staff. It's literally the perfect place to hang by the beach, eat good food and soak up the atmosphere! The drinks are also amazing which makes you enjoy the band even more! More of a local vibe rather than a tourist spot. Worth the wait!

Was here 5 months ago for vacation and just had to come back today for our next vacation!! The atmosphere is incredibly chill, the drinks (even the House Margarita) are worth every penny, and the food is ALWAYS perfect. This is my new favorite restaurant when we come to Sarasota. Good day on Manasota Beach, then a nice drive down Canopy Road until you hit Sandbar Tiki!! Looking forward to the next one🤙🏼🔥💯✌🏼

The only bad thing is the parking. Go early, eat and drink awhile. The Fisherman's Feast is just that, be hungry. The Pina Colada is thick and cooling.

Always a must stop when going to the beach. The smoker can be smelled from the beach and the meat that comes of it is so good. There's e entertainment everyday.

I came here JUST to hear The Boomers band!! I had heard them before here and made the hour and 20 minute drive again, when I learned they were here again! Awesome 60’s band in a relaxed setting! Love the multiple fire pit seating areas/outdoor bar, too! I didn’t eat, but the drinks were good. Waiter did a good job. Fun spot to dance & enjoy! I hope this band is a regular! I’ll make the drive!

We are at the SandBar Tiki & Grille. This is NO April Fools dance. It’s rocking! Great food and fantastic music!! The Boomers from Florida are shaking the place up with their 60’s music and the dance floor is filled! This band is the bomb! They engage their audience, pass out peace sign necklaces and occasionally a hand-made daisy flower “hippie” headband. Love this band and this venue!! Can’t wait to come back to hear The Boomers and have one of their tasty brisket sandwiches!
