Description: We are a casual dining restaurant located on the Pamlico Sound in Buxton. We have been serving lunch and dinner on the Outer Banks for 20 years now, six in Hatteras until Hurricane Isabel took our building away, and then we blew up the road to Buxton for the last 14 years. At this time lunch is served daily 11:30-3 in season, and dinner is served nightly at 5pm. All of our soups and desserts are homemade, we serve an assortment of fresh seafood daily, as well as sandwiches, steaks, ribs, and pastas. We have live music on the deck Thursday & Friday nights this summer. Hope to see you there!!

Tasty food on the sounds with plenty of deck space. A good spot to take in the sunset and enjoy an evening with family. The arcade is also a nice touch for the kids after a well-behaved meal. This is a repeat eatery for us.

We were driving towards Nags Head from Hatteras Island in the evening. This restaurant showed like oasis. It turned out to be one of the highlights of the day. Pretty big restaurant, excellent natural view, live music. The parking lot full, people were waiting to sit down, they can kill time in the game room or just listen to music or enjoy nature.

My family loves this place. Good drinks and great food. Oyster Bay Sauvignon with bisque and stuffed flounder are excellent. Definitely try the Caesar salad. Seafood Alfredo and king crab legs also excellent. Can’t go wrong w anything on the menu.

I liked that we got to sit on the deck and have a drink while we waited for our table. It was very busy so we waited about an hour. I liked the mahi mahi fish bites and sauce. I shared my husbands combo meal with him. Unfortunately it was fried but he enjoyed it. Our friends really loved their non fried choices.

The reviews for the Sandbar and Grill, as well as the view of the bay, convinced us to go. We went for dinner and were seated quickly even though it was packed.
The menu had a large variety of choices that'd make pleasing everyone in a group easy. We are Italians from NJ, and chose pasta against our better judgement. We were happily surprised! I got the mozzarella chicken (chicken parm), the sauce and chicken were yummy. My husband got the shrimp and crab alfredo, which he said was delicious. He'd go back for it. It came with caesar salads to start, and two pieces of garlic bread. We were stuffed by the end of it!
