The Sandollar Restaurant & Marina — Beach Bar Review

The Sandollar is located right on the St. John’s River and this affords its customers scenic views of Fort George Island. This well-established restaurant and watering hole is home to an older set that enjoys watching the Mayport Ferry make her way out to Fort George. There’s plenty of seating indoors, out of the sun in this beach bar but it also has a large deck for those who enjoy lounging in the sun while sipping a cold drink.

On high-season weekends, the Sandollar provides live entertainment evenings from 4pm to 8pm. However, if you’re looking for loud, head-banging music, this is not the place. You might hear some loud noise sometimes, that’s a Cobra or a Blackhawk helicopter heading toward Mayport Naval Base. But, the music, like the food is consistently good.

The Sandollar does have a pretty view of the St. John’s and a relaxing atmosphere for a visit and pleasant conversation without trying to shout over the music.

We came for lunch and had the Calamari and a Seafood salad to start and I caught the Sandollar Sandwich, which is a grilled Blackened Redfish and I always get the sweet potato fries as my side, while my friend had the Seafood Platter, which is supposedly for one. This platter has plenty of scallops, shrimp, clam strips, fish strips, and deviled crab, she had it fried, but you can get it blackened or grilled with your favorite side.

Our conclusion and Beach Bar Review Drink Rating

Whenever we come here for dinner, I always have the Black Angus Prime Rib, Au Jus & horseradish, with loaded baked potatoes and she has the Bourbon Street Salmon (grilled in a succulent bourbon sauce) with Black Beans & Rice. We come here for the relaxed atmosphere and excellent food, but the service is always great!

Nice quiet conversation with a singer softly strumming a guitar and singing old time favorites you remember from childhood. You really can’t find a better atmosphere than here!

We give The Sandollar a 4-drink rating for providing great drinks and Prime Rib to die for.
