    SANDBAR DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU. They have the worst management and employees I have ever seen. Why would you want to go to a business that disrespects their customers? STAY AWAY FROM SANDBAR!

    What could be better than an ice-cold beer and some Mexican food for lunch or dinner? How about the feeling of sand beneath your feet on a comfy patio that hollers "tropical island paradise!" Read more

    On Monday and you can get $3 Dos Equis, and $5 house margaritas from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sandbar will also have drink specials, live music, and DJs on Saturday and Sunday.

    Everything about this place screams "overrated." The menu is rather limited and the nachos are awful. Wait staff is painful to look at. I've seen better in Wichita.

    I can't seem to stay away from this place. Decent drink prices, nice staff.. Although it would be nice to turn down the douche quota on Fridays and Saturdays.

    Service is hit-or-miss, at least on Friday evenings.. Group of friends and I went earlier in the year and got outstanding service.. Went again later in the year, 30+ minute wait in between rounds..

    A sandy, misted haven for 20-something singles & we have to admit -- there's something sort of charming about sipping cheap beers (and the occasional shot of tequila) with our toes in the sand. Read more
