    Made reservations well in advance-(valentines day) when our table was ready they wanted to seat us next to the kitchen door where wait staff went in and out- asked to be accommodated in a different seating area and they said it was not available at that time, although there were several empty seats…they could of easily switched us with no problem- sat at the bar where bar tender was more engaging to people he seemed to know-not very attentive us-disappointing. Would have been nice to have some entertainment Food was good tho…

    First time back in about a year. Incredibly disappointing… they used to have excellent crafted bar cocktails, our bourbon drinks were terrible. Half of the menu was unavailable (mussels, scallops, flatbread, short rib, and a few other items- it was a joke). Was looking forward to a great dinner with my wife - happy to spend $100 on a sitter and $200+ at dinner. Won’t be giving them another try. Something serious has changed.

    Very cold and side door keeps getting opened which makes it difficult to have a comfortable dining experience. Menu changes have not been great. Been here last few times and super disappointed in food and pricing for what you get. Used to love this place. I won’t be rushing back any time soon!

    We went on Thursday Jazz night, and it was great! The service and food were outstanding-we both had etouffe and loved it. The chef came by to chat as we were finishing—a thoughtful touch. The music was great - a young female vocalist and a keyboard player. We’ll be back!

    I ordered the Ratatouille for $20 and it was basically a dish of red sauce with a single layer of zucchini on top. Ratatouille is traditionally LAYERS of thinly sliced vegetables. On top of this, is was a very small portion. I was disappointed with my meal.

    I like that Sandy Point takes reservations. Our dinners were very good and our waitress was great! It did get kind of noisy when more people arrived due to cement flooring but it still was a very enjoyable dinner and place to go. We will definitely be back!

    Worst service I’ve had in decades. We waited 20 minutes for our server to greet us, then he disappeared for 10 more minutes. We were about to leave. Waited 15 minutes for our drinks, half an hour for our food, and it all came out at once: appetizers, soup and entrees. Had to go find an employee to cash out and leave. Not going back.

    We had a great meal at Sandy Point. I had theBang Bang Shrimp & a cup of the chowder. Both were excellent and I would order them again. My husband had the whitefish. He said it was good. He would have liked it to be a little crunchier and maybe have some kind of starch like a potato or bread served with the meal.

    The food was good. The restaurant was out of one of the entrees that we were interested in getting. It took a long time to get our drinks only to find out that one of the beers we ordered was unavailable. Then it took a while to get our second choice.
