Good beachfront fare with an amazing view! Casual picnic table dining but right above the beach. There is also a nice outdoor seating area for the full bar with fire pit.

Stopped in for some lunch. Hubby and I both had clam chowder. It came with a wonderful roll. The food was very good and the service was great as well. We have been here before and will return.

Went here for dinner. Fish and chips were amazing. Chicken alfredo would have been amazing but the chicken was incredibly over seasoned. Service was great. Restaurant very clean.

Four of us went here for dinner. We enjoyed great cocktails. We ordered a seafood sampler platter to share and each ordered a salad. This was plenty. Nick was our server-very friendly and very good at his job.

The weather forecast was for ‘gorgeous’. Mid 80’s on the coast, a rare occurrence. So it was a hands down decision to make the 2-hour drive to Rockaway Beach for lunch at my favorite seafood place the Sand Dollar. Clams so large in the chowder...More

My husband is wheat allergic, which forces him into gluten free a lot. We shared a fish platter and there was plenty on it he could eat and he had a salad also. Ask your waiter. They are anxious to meet diner's needs.
