Sandbar Bar & Grille, originally established more than sixty years ago, has been run by Nancy and Al for close to nine years. Like many restaurants on the Chain ‘o’ Lakes, Sandbar is tucked away at the end of a gravel driveway. The restaurant overlooks Lake Marie and is easy to reach by boat. This location is also great for fishermen and snowmobilers. Fishermen love coming in and using one of Sandbar Bar & Grille’s many docks, and snowmobilers love riding around on the vast plots of land.
In addition to its perfect location, Sandbar is known and loved for its food, a testament to Al and Nancy. They believe food is best served fresh. Regulars can’t get enough of their homemade pizzas and signature sandwiches including Reubens, Burgers, and Italian Beef. It’s Sandbar Bar & Grille’s quality of food that differentiates them from other restaurants and bars on the Chain. With their large deck and huge beach area with picnic tables, there’s room for everyone at Sandbar.
