Sand Bar in Delray Beach
Sand Bar, located on S. Ocean Blvd. in Delray Beach is an aptly named night spot that has a relaxed, college-like vibe, great nightly drink specials and a sensibly priced menu to top it off. Part of the Boston’s on the Beach group of restaurants in Delray, when the weather is right, this is one of our go-to spots to grab a drink with friends, kick off our shoes and relax.
Fire pits surrounded by colorful Adirondack chairs, tiki bars, covered lounge areas and sand on the floor bring the beach to you (even though the beautiful beaches and water are just across the street). We’ve visited the bar/restaurant on both a Friday and Sunday night during different weekends and if you arrive early enough, there is plenty of seating, so there should be little or no wait. The seating is first-come, first-serve, so there is no reason to try and obtain a reservation. On weekend nights there is a live dj, so it can get fun and loud pretty quickly. Dancing is encouraged.
There are four areas to enjoy the American menu and great drinks (we enjoyed the Raspberry Mojito and Bloody Mary). The lobster roll (not pictured – $17) was how we like it; large chunks of lobster, not too much mayo and served on a fresh bun. Beyond that we also shared wings, fried to perfection and enjoyed a variety of other dishes, such as a salad with grilled shrimp and their grilled chicken cabana, topped with cheese and bacon.
We love Sand Bar for what it is. It’s an unpretentious bar and restaurant where we can let our hair down, enjoy the outdoors, feel the sand in our toes and relax. That’s everything that we want from a restaurant.
