A great location in West Dennis with unique marsh-side views you're hard pressed to find elsewhere (great for late afternoon when sun changes sky color). A fun environment with outside picnic table seating, table top Ms PAC-Man/ Galaxy and the Tiki Toss. Been a couple...More

We visited the Sand Bar twice in the last week, once just for drinks while on the way to have dinner at The Lighthouse Inn, and once for dinner. The bar and indoor dining area have a very "old Cape Cod" vibe (see my pics)...More
