Review and Testimonials of Sandbar:


"The Sandbar was the perfect location "

The Sandbar was the perfect location for our beautiful beach wedding! We were unfamiliar with the island and the area, but we were lucky enough to have gotten a wonderful recommendation from a family friend who also had a wedding there. Throughout the entire planning process, Patti, the event coordinator, was incredibly helpful and accommodating. Any little questions that I had, she was more than happy to answer and very quick to respond.

When we made the trip from Indiana to Anna Maria Island to meet with our vendors, the chef and Patti were both very receptive to our vision and preferences. The staff went above and beyond for our food tasting and provided many options for us. All were delicious and it was very hard to make a decision. When meeting with Patti, I was able to show her all of my pins from Pinterest and she had all of the decorations that I could ever want there, in house. She even had options that I hadn't even thought about! They definitely know how to create a beautiful beach wedding and make the bridal party and families feel special.

"Patti was great  "

Patti was great she helped with all my crazy questions and made sure everything was perfect on our big day the sandbar is a great place to say I do... It was beautiful romantic and laid back excaxtly what we were looking for... The food was amazing! Everyone is still raving!

"The Sandbar's team  "

The Sandbar's team and especially Patti did an amazing job!!! Everything went perfect and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding day! I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a beach wedding at the best location in Florida.

"We had our Wedding and Reception "

We had our Wedding and Reception at the Sandbar Restaurant on 1/24/15. If there was only one word to describe the entire day it would be "PERFECTION". We only took 2 months to plan the entire wedding and selecting the Sandbar for not only the beautiful location but for the services that they provided made our lives so much easier.
