Went there to celebrate the 4th of July holiday weekend and it was so fun!!! Live music, friendly staff, and great food. I got the beer cheese pub burger with sweet potato fries and I would order it again and again! All of the staff had protective masks or shields on and the tables were all a safe distance from each other.

What a lovely evening in the midst of all this craziness! Wonderful live music, efficient service, delicious food, cold beer and an atmosphere that can't be beat. The best beach-vibe restaurant in the area with sand to sink your toes in, fan misters, harbor view, tiki hut and the BEST part is the live music and overall atmosphere. I couldn't have asked for a better break from life than a few hours steeped in pure beachy bliss relaxation with an icy cold beer in hand and music to lighten my soul. Much needed and much appreciated 😊

Honestly one of the best places I have eating. Sandbar has a perfect menu with a unique style. The brisket sandwich was spectacular and cook to perfection. The loaded fries has the perfect amount of ingredients enough to enjoy every single last bite. And let's not forget the drinks are mixed to enjoy. The perfect amount of alcohol that is not over powered by the perfectly blended ingredients. I will end up coming back anytime I'm back in town.

Charles restaurant review-

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.

Great place to hang out and have a few drinks and food. Atamanchuk Family is awesome. They also own the Lock @ Key. Moved here from Chicago in 2005 and have been to both places plenty of times. Ukrainian people know how to host for sure. Best 2 restaurants in Englewood.. Highly Recommened.
