Located on the north end of Anna Maria Island, The Sandbar is the perfect place to enjoy the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico from our dining room or on our covered deck. It has plenty of room for kids to play on the beach while parents enjoy the view, a tropical drink and fresh seafood. Since 1979, people have been visiting this iconic restaurant with their families and loved ones, creating memories that they come back to relive year after year. The menu features traditional beachside bites inspired by coastal communities around the world, including our own. Locally sourced, fresh ingredients are always at the forefront of everything we do.
With the gulf coast of Florida just steps away from our deck, we have a front row seat to how important protecting our natural resources really is. Upholding coastal traditions in a sustainable way is embedded in everything we do, from the vendors we choose to the eco-friendly methods we implement. Composting, oyster shell recycling, promoting local and sustainable products, and pledging 1% of our annual revenue to environmental causes through the 1% for the Planet organization are all initiatives our staff is exceedingly passionate about.
