Was out for a Sunday drive on Galveston West End and stopped for lunch. Unique Sandbar bar under the restaurant that had a light lunch fare. Have to say was one of the best hamburgers I've had in a long time.

West End? Small, but really good food. Make a reservation if you can or you will wait a long time. It is kind of a gem tucked way away in Sea Isle. Fish was fresh and expertly prepared. Small, but adequate wine list. Friendly service....More

Definitely don’t go if in a hurry and for sure don’t go if you have hungry teenagers. We had 2 families (9 total) with kid ages ranging from 9-13 on a Friday night arriving at 6:15 so we knew there would be some wait. There...More

Took the Family to the Sandbar Grill our first night on vacation. This is our New Regular Stop when we are in town. Great Food, Service and Atmosphere. They have ICE COLD BEER. We loved the live music. We'll Defiantly Be Back.

I've eaten here several times, but this time I was very disappointed. The service was unusually slow and unhelpful. It was not at all busy and staff were just standing around. The food was good, but the slow service kind of ruined the meal.

We ate at the downstairs restaurant for dinner one night while staying nearby with family. We liked this option over the nicer restaurant upstairs since we had kids with us. It was a little warm but they had lots of fans blowing. It seems like...More
