The Sandbar is a new bar and grill in Westover that boasts itself as a slice of paradise. It's located in the former Weezie's Pub and Club location, at 417 Holland Ave.
This Hawaiian-inspired bar has an area for tables and chairs, as well as a dance floor. The interior has what looks like new finishings and lots and lots of wood. The menu has items like lettuce wraps, coconut shrimp, burgers, sliders and ribs. They also have a whole menu of themed cocktails.
My friend and I ordered pork spring rolls, and for our main entree, we asked the waitress what she recommended. She told us their ribs and their chicken dish were really good. So we each got one so we could try both.
The spring rolls were really tasty. Were they homemade? I doubt it; but they were pretty good. The sweet and sour sauce was like a sweet chili sauce - pretty good. The main entree, though, was nothing to write home about. My ribs didn't have bones? I was kind of surprised - pleasantly surprised - by that, but not until I tried them. 95% of the pieces were grisly, fatty, chewy and just all around not good quality meat. The sauce on top was sweeter, but I think went better with the chicken dish.
The chicken was much more ultimate crowd-pleaser. I mean, it's chicken. The same sauce was used, but it was clearly made for the chicken dish. Or at least it should've been. My sides were rice and macaroni salad (my choice). I actually found a small hair, so that kind of did me in.
Not a whole lot to say about this one, but in my personal opinion, I'd move along.
