Review №1

Came in for a nice dinner. Unfortunately I have a condition that renders me unable to wear a mask. I explained this to the hostess and she said there are no expectations. I even offered to walk to the outside area WITHOUT ENTERING and sit down. Nope....the Americans with Disabilities act is not honored at this establishment.

So I loved the environment very much. Their choice of music was really good and diverse. I loved that they had big screens all around the restaurant. I sat at a booth not thinking about TV, but when football started all of the TV's were turned on to the game. I liked how they had it set up when the game was on the music turned down and the was heard throughout the whole restaurant, but when there was a commercial the music was back. Our waiter was very nice and attentive to us and would come over very often to ask how we were doing. Now on to the food. I ordered a chimichanga enchilada style and it came with beans and rice, and for the most part it was good but was missing a little of that authentic real Mexican food taste. My kids got nachos and I tried some of them and the nachos were pretty good, but then again it now hard to mess up nachos. My only complaint is that the chips or the nachos and my chimi were kind of burnt like the cook got a little and forgot about the food and it burnt a little. I can honestly say I will return, but I will try something else...... maybe the fajita.

First time here and i must say, it has a very upbeat atmosphere and the wait staff was very friendly! Our server, Andi, did an excellent job keeping me full on Pepsi! I ordered the Honey Jalapeno wings which were delicious! Great place to go watch your favorite sports team! Highly recommend going here for lunch or dinner!

Review №4

They were operating as a restaurant which is completely fine. What wasn't fine was literally everything else. They charged a cover fee as if they were acting like a bar, which they weren't. Why charge a cover then tell us you're operating as a restaurant? What restaurant charges cover? Also, there was never a cover even before when they operated as a real bar so where did that come from? In addition, they told us we could not go between the patio and the indoors, could not stand up at the table, and could only go to the bathrooms and back. Not allowing people to stand is a truly insane rule. They were playing Latin dance music and when we requested to hear a meg thee stallion song we were told they were not allowed to play "twerking music" as it encouraged people to dance. As if they weren't already playing dance music. The wait staff also continuously brought incorrect drinks and orders to our table and our waitress 1. Never brought back the change when my friend paid for drinks and kept a $9 tip that my friend did not authorize and 2. Kept taking off her mask every time she spoke like either wear it or don't

Great good. Great atmosphere. Been here multiple times during the years I've lived here. Always a good time!

Review №6

Glad to be getting out of the house again and seeing people enjoying themselves. Sandbar is handling the distancing very well.

Review №7

This place is great! It's a Mexican Food place but their wings are awesome! And the beer is cold! That's a win win! Andres the manager made sure we were taken care of!

Review №8

Went there in a Friday night. They were doing a pretty good job of adhering to the vivid regulations. Good was decent. Being the type of place where people gather for her together and hang with friends the music was kept way too loud for a place without a dance floor. Could barely hear each other over the music.

Review №9

Was a long line to get in... naturally on a Saturday night but food, staff and music were great. Social distancing was in place which was nice. Great first visit will be back soon.

Review №10

Jasmin was so sweet. The drinks were amazing and the service was perfect. We will be coming back to this awesome bar!!

Review №11

Great place for a Taco Tuesday. Tacos are great and the margarita special makes it all perfect. Think Sandbar on Tuesdays!

Review №12

Great music... very clean, there is a wait time due to covd19 so get there by or before 7pm.. we sat at bar.. but patio is a 30+ minute wait.Frozen Strawberry Margaritas are the Best!!

Review №13

Great spot for lunch! I usually order the Baja tacos or the Ahi tuna salad. Plenty of parking and great service. 5 stars!

Review №14

Good food, but the staff was NOT following or enforcing any CDC or mask guidelines... very dirty.

Review №15

Worst service imaginable. Ambiance is all off. Dog food is more flavorful and doesn't make you regret your morning coffee. Just don't do it.

Review №16

This is the first time I come to SandBar in Chandler and let me tell you, I'm impressed. The staff was very friendly and on top of their game! Karli was our server, top notch service and the manager Andres was very energetic giving this place a great feel! Will most definitely be back! Thank you Karli and Andres!

Review №17

I love the carne asada tacos. Good beer prices. Always enjoyed my time here.

Review №18

Stopped by for my birthday. Beer was cold and they give you a bunch of chips and dip I liked it

Review №19

Four stars for my food. The veggie tacos were delish. The noice level is soooo loud. You also have to wear a mask walking to your table which seemed silly when we sat close to the door.

Review №20

Everything was great We got kicked out on Thanksgiving because of our drunk uncle... Staff handled it and us so professionally!!!

Review №21

Great service on the patio. Fish tacos were good

Review №22

The beer wasn't even cold, the food was horrible not to mention the service was ok but she didn't even ask if we wanted boxes and she noticed all the food still on our plates and didn't say anything. The only good thing about the entire time there was the frozen margaritas so basically we paid 60 dollars for one frozen margarita cuz we didn't touch anything else.

Review №23

Poor is virtual and selection is basic. I could get better food at IHOP!. And waitresses need ppl skills. Just because you hire good looking ppl. Doesn't mean they have great ppl skills. Superficial to the T at this establishment!

Review №24

Great atmosphere, food was good and love that it's open late.

Review №25

Food and service are fine but not worth the airport goose price for titos.

Review №26

Waitress super friendly food was good. We had a good time.

Review №27

Who says you have to drive hours to find the beach? Just a few miles down the road @sandbarchandler they bring the beach right to their front door. Want to catch the game? They got it! Great food, great drinks, great service and a phenomenal atmosphere. Check it out! #sandbaraz #sandbartv #lfthx #organicad

Review №28

Went there on Saturday night and it's very militant now. You will be seated and you can't stand up. You must be seated to take off your mask.

Review №29

Great place to watch football with attentive service keeping up with drinks and food.

Review №30

Such a fun place! We got jalapeno margaritas and they were AMAZING. The bar tender was super friendly and great. The chips and salsa were the best I have ever had. I got tortilla soup and steak tacos and a side salad and they were also sooooo delicious. Great drinks, food, and service. I will definitely be coming back!

Review №31

Love being greeted by friendly staff! Place is cool and plays good music. The waitress was super attentive. I came to try the tacos, but before I having them, I had to try the Mild Bufflo Wings - you can order all wings or drums for $2 extra. Then I had the Shrimp Tacos which had Pineapple-Mango Salsa which I totally enjoyed. Also, they give a good amount of shrimp in a taco - splendid! And it came with Rice and Beans!12.2019

Review №32

Jasmine & Ashley are the best bar tenders!! So kind and efficient. Thank you!

Review №33

The wait that night was long. Due to covid things arent the same.

Review №34

Atmosphere is great! Bright, lively, loud-Holy hell they were drilling inside, so you couldn't hear, then outside was cold and rainy.Our server was truly clueless about the menu and food they serve. Unfortunately I have a gluten allergy.Food was flavorful and I was able to adapt a few items and still have great food.Seriously though. The service. Good golly. The second server we had wasn't much better. She took my water glass to refill and never came back with it!When did they take glasses to fill them?There are pitchers for that.Anyway.., sorry guys

Review №35

Great staff. Awesome taco Tuesday specials. Came here with a group of friends on Tuesday afternoon and was seated right away.

Review №36

Food was really amazing! Service was pretty slow but I think it's due to Covid and reduced staff so I'm not turned off by the place. Yum. I'd go again when I'm back in town.

Review №37

They literally told us (2 of us) they could let people in then proceeded to let 2 Other girls in to the bar. Absolutely disgusting of the staff!

Review №38

Service was fast and the whole restaurant was very clean.

Review №39

My boyfriend and I came in last night just to have a drink. We waited about 10 minutes for someone to serve us and nobody hasn't even acknowledged us at all. One employee was refusing service to us, but didn't bother telling one of her employees to help us. We didn't had the same problem the first time we came in.

Review №40

Nice staff, good food, good music, all around good vibe.

Review №41

So pleases with the quality customer service and food at the Sandbar. Our waitress Andy provided the best recommendations from our dishes and special fried ice cream, which is so rare to see these days. Delicious!!! Be back soon.

Review №42

I used to like this place a lot but things have changed a bit. One thing they still have a pretty decent happy hour staff is still friendly Services fast food is okay. But definitely still come back for the happy hour and outside area. Good place to watch the game or the fight lots of TVs good music at night.

Review №43

Best wings ive had in a while! Lots of meat on the bone! Great presentation and fantastic blue cheese! I should have taken a picture. Went with the sweet chili sauce. It was a great time with friends on a warm Saturday afternoon before an escape room. Would definitely do it again!

Review №44

I went out with my besties I never been here it was nice food was Great!!

Review №45

Honey jalapeños wings still on point!!! Service still A1

Review №46

Very nice place. Was glad they are practicing social distancing. Music was great. Crowd was all ages.

Review №47

The staff here are on-point! Even with the social limitations in place it's still a great time here.

Review №48

Great food with a fun and enjoyable environment!

Review №49

Called ahead specifically to make sure the kitchen would be open, only to have the waitress tell me it is closed when I arrived an hour later. The manager Sean offered a bottom shelf drink to compensate, and they watered it down. Pathetic service, and pathetic customer service after the fact. I recommend not banking on their service or kitchen at any time.

Review №50

GREAT Saturday afternoon vibe!! Excellent food and service too. They have plenty of TVs showing the sports games and people coming to root for their team!! It was a fun time at Sandbar Chandler and will definitely be back! Oh, and they have the best chips and salsa

Review №51

I came in today to watch the game with my kids and it was great ! Had some appetizers, and beers. Had a comfortable booth, with tv up close. I love that all the booths have tvs available, and this place is kid friendly. Great service too !

Review №52

Nice restaurant. Great food with authentic flavors. Loved the beach style decor. Great place to watch all your sporting events!

Review №53

Food was good and the waiter was very attentive. We ate outside, the misting fans made it really comfortable on a hot day.

Review №54

With a cool vibe, large patio and diverse mix of patrons this place is a favorite for happy hour and more. Never had a bad time coming here. Definitely worth checking out!

Review №55

Nice place to go to let loose ciroc drinks are a little over proves ($12) per drink. Other than that not to bad

Review №56

I like this place but the bar stools are dangerous the legs on the chairs are so uneven that it's a hazard someone is going to seriously get injured. Please fix.

Review №57

Extremely great food Taco Tuesday is also great Taco for 2.00 very good dill. Very tasty food. Will be back. P.S. they also carry gluten free items on their entire menu. 5 STAR Restaurant.

Review №58

Great open patio area with fun bright colors reminded me of Cancun Beach bars. Happy hour had a nice variety of adult beverages & tasty food. Guacamole & Queso dip are the bomb!

Review №59

Headed here on a Friday, after starting out at Dos and I think the bartender heard me say my birthday was the day before & bought me a shot which was super cool! Also, he was super hot along with the other bartender. They were making very good drinks & sometime during the night, they disappeared & it was different bartenders. Made me kinda sad. Anyway, definitely recommend, great staff & cool atmosphere.If you enjoyed this review or found it helpful, PLEASE, give it a LIKE!

Review №60

Enjoyed some delicious mango margaritas here! The ambiance was comfortable. The table was clean. The bathrooms were tidy. Our server was great. I had a good time here! Be sure to ask for Tajin on your mango margaritas, it makes it soooo much better.

Review №61

The absolute best way to spend a Friday or Saturday night. Or even both. The atmosphere is so chill. Everyone just wants to sip on a drink and clear their mind while having fun.

Review №62

Great place to hang out and meet up with friends for happy hour

Review №63

Great staff and extremely kind manager! So much fun for families during the day and going out at night. Highly recommend!

Review №64

Great food, great service!

Review №65

Always a good time at the "cat box" better known as the sandbar. Never deal with bad waitresses or waiters, is a kick back place to relax with friends after a long week of work. The food is rather decent as well as the drinks, reasonable for the most part and worth the stop. Gonna hit it up again real soon!

Review №66

Chill atmosphere, decent music, drinks priced right

Review №67

Great service, drinks, food & patio!!!!!

Review №68

Good food great service I'll definitely be back

Review №69

Excellent atmosphere good people!!

Review №70

Great ambience and crowd.. Try to be there before 10pm else you might have to pay$10 convert charge. Food and drinks were both excellent

Review №71

It was a birthday party for a young man that was killed in a car accident the weekend before. It was his 30 birthday. All the friends and family that came were such a blessing. Staff was remarkable. I only hope they were tipped well. Thank you Sandbar

Review №72

Nice and chill i do hope they fix it up more like San tan.. at least actually put liquor in the mix beverages

Review №73

Great food, great fun, surfboard tables are awesome, it's a great atmosphere, an all around great place to chill, have a couple drinks with friends and play a little cornhole to see who's buying.

Review №74

I had to change my seat at the bar multiple times just to pick up a take out order. This is more of a night club than a restaurant. Horrible service and mediocre food.

Review №75

I have been here several times and just can't excuse the staff behavior sometimes. The atmosphere keeps me coming back. Patio is great if you can avoid the smokers. Pool table is in a horrible place and bad condition. There are alot of very snotty slow waitresses and there are some great ones. Food depends on what you order but I've never had anything to write home about.

Review №76

Casual dining.

Review №77

I've never eaten here but the grill smells delicious on Sat night. Its crowded with a lot of good looking people usually. Good music for the most part

Review №78

Went for a healthy lunch of shrimp and vegetables, and wasn't disappointed. Festive atmosphere, large patio (dog friendly until 9 pm), ample parking.

Review №79

Food was good. Service was great. Fun atmosphere. Portion size was kinda small for the price. Overall a fun place!

Review №80

The drinks were good. Decent service. Food was....not something I would eat again.

Review №81

Great place to party on Saturday night never ate the food though too busy partying they do have somebody there making tacos in the front

Review №82

It was loud and their speaker system was awful. Had it sounded good it wouldn't be a problem. But it was just harsh and irritating, I couldn't understand people talking that were sitting next to me.

Review №83

I love this place!! Great Atmosphere!! The bartenders that come out to take your order werr a little slow on bringing my birthday drinks. The bartender Chrissy hooked me up!! Thank you Chrissy!!

Review №84

The bar was packed and had great music to dance to. However I didn't know the fight was on and had to pay a cover charge. Had to wait for the fight to go off before I could attempt to enjoy my evening. I an not into sports and.the reason I came to the bar is because I'm tired of looking at tv at home.

Review №85

Always good always fresh and always super sweet staff thank you for making our Valentine's so special

Review №86

Management and one server really disrespectful. Told me my time was irrelevant. Told me follow guidelines that they weren't following

Review №87

Great happy hour place! The guacamole is excellent!

Review №88

Great place for a large work team or group event, which is what I went to. Would have been even better if tgey can raise their bar on the food. Still highly recommend for the ambience and the service. It also is a pet friendly place.

Review №89

Service at this location is great.

Review №90

Fun events on the weekends and holidays, strong margaritas, cute outfits, nachos and the seasonal salted caramel martini are mouth watering. I do not recommend going during the sporting events, unless you are really into sports. In my opinion its always packed to the brim, aggressive, and they charge a hefty cover during those events (normally no cover).

Review №91

The Fresh Tacos that are made in front of you are the best. The drinks are okay but the food makes up for it. If you like hip hop and Latin music this is a great place to dance and get some great food after.

Review №92

Fun hip place to hang out . Brews could be colder . But had friendly service, clean bathrooms, great music . I'll be back Thank you Sandbar got another great place to hangout. Just work on the cold suds and ima give the the only 5 star .The only one I've ever given.

Review №93

You want hip hop with some Latin flavor? Come here for some eye candy, drinks. And good food. Chicken nachos for LIFE.

Review №94

Great atmosphere. Good staff. I enjoyed myself.

Review №95

Fish tacos were great, service was ok because i didnt order alcohol. The manager was great and comped our beverages

Review №96

Cool atmosphere - good music - nice place to hang.

Review №97

I'm so beyond disappointed. The service was awful. The food wasn't good. I'm vegetarian. I ordered impossible tacos. I was so excited that they served them! I ate one taco and took the other two home. My significant other started to eat the other two and he was 100% sure this was ground beef. Rewind to when our food arrived and the waiter said beef tacos? We said no. He put the plate down and served the rest of our table. He then handed us that plate and we confirmed they were impossible tacos. He said yes. Our experience was nice. I liked the environment but I'm really sad I just ate ground beef. Hopefully they don't make that mistake for future people. :(

Review №98

I visit Sandbar quite often with my girls and always have an amazing time. The sweet potato fries and the guacamole are very tasty. I usually order the Prickly Pear frozen cocktail and three of those will make for a good night! Their happy hour is amazing, outside of happy hour things can get a little pricey. A great atmosphere for whatever you feel like that night, games, dancing, sitting and talking you can do it all at Sandbar.

Review №99

I absolutely love this spot. Anytime you need to catch the game or fight, you can count on Sandbar to display it on one of their TVs and enjoy a delicious meal while you're at it. Of course their drinks are always on point as well. Also, shout out to Troy for his wonderful bartending services and sharing his hilarious stories with us.

I loved coming here. It's a cool spot I had my bday party here.
