    A great location for a drink, staff were lovely but food was disappointing. Pizza burned on the crust and the fish and chips were not good, batter was thick and very little fish. Will go back for a drink but will not be ordering food again

    The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. The service was lacking. The waitress never brought the condiments she offered for our meal. I had to take it from an empty table! Service and waitress were slower than expected for not being overly busy with lots of staff bouncing around. Not sure why they asked if there was a special occasion because there was nothing special offered. Took an excessive amount of time to check out as well!

    Food and service was good. However we were seated in the hot sun and asked for an umbrella but we were told it couldn't be done. Thought when I made the reservation we would be on the deck. Would have been better if an actual person would answer the phone. Was disappointed where we sat

    Our waitress was excellent and was taking care of our orders. The food was very good, and we did not feel any urgency. We were able to take our time, talk, and relax, considering that it was Mother's Day.

    Dined on the outdoor deck for Mother’s Day lunch. It was beautiful! There were 6 of us and all enjoyed our food very much. Highly recommend the Lobster and Crab wonton Nachos! So delicious. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We were actually 1/2 late for our reservation and we still were able to sit where I requested. Only concern was the service was very slow for how busy they were at the time. We were in between lunch and dinner therefore it wasn’t very busy. Overall great friendly service and food!

    We came to the Sandbar for Mother's Day Brunch and as always, everything was exceptional. We originally booked inside but changed our minds once we saw the weather was beautiful and asked for a patio table and they quickly and helpfully accommodated us. Our server, Jules, was pleasant, quick and very helpful!!! Our food choices from their select brunch menu was exactly as described. It was hot, quickly delivered and delicious! The prices here are always very reasonable, as well. Will definitely be heading back, as we always do! The Sandbar has always been a favorite for delicious food, great service and great location with nice views!!!!

    Our waitress was awesome. We were on the patio and it was a little chilly in the shade fir my grandma. Out waitress moved us to a table in the sun. It was much appreciated. I missed the buffet style brunch but all in all it was still excellent.

    We came Saturday night for dinner to celebrate Mother’s Day…There was 6 of us. Left a little disappointed. Unfortunately, both Pizzas we ordered were cold when they arrived. We ended up taking almost all of it to go so we could heat it up when we got home. Our waitress was pretty busy and we didn’t see her too often. She didn’t smile or seem friendly and we kinda felt like a bother to ask her for something.

    Keith was very caring and helpful with our reservations. The welcome was warm. Jennifer, our server, was patient, great listener, had great timing on checking in with us, took good care of us, and was friendly. We were thanked by bar staff for coming in. Just a great, relaxing experience for my family. Everything was perfect and we will definitely return. We would recommend you get OV on tap however! It’s very popular and we’ve convinced two other popular establishment to get it. They both have sold out at times!

    It was an amazing brunch ! Fresh and tasty..We had Caesars and as usual they were the best...Not many places can make a Caesar cocktail like THE SANBAR does...Love the huge fresh shrimp and pepper as a topper...sometimes they even use a slice of pepperoni as a cocktail topper and it really makes your day Our daughter who frequents Toronto restarantts just loved us bringing her there!
