Welcome to the Sandbar & Grill!

“Where Locals meet to eat!”

Tucked away beneath Monterey’s Municipal Wharf #2, the small restaurant and bar hangs alongside the pier in dramatic fashion. Walk down the steps towards the water, ring the ship’s bell and enter a room surrounded by windows looking out onto the marina. Waitpersons are prompt and courteous. Uncomplicated menus & lots of tasty choices. Try a Louie Salad loaded with Fresh Dungeness Crabmeat and Prawns. Localize your dining experience with Sanddabs or Monterey fresh catch.  Enjoy our signature Calamari, so tender and flavorful. Homemade Clam Chowder is a big hit too! Dinner offers Fresh Fish Specials, Whole Crab (when available), a thick juicy New York Steak and more!

When you visit the Sandbar & Grill, you’re in for a treat. Our warm and charming atmosphere will instantly relax you while our attentive staff spoils you. Daily menu specials offer unique flavors and pairings. Full bar and beautiful wine list is available. Parking is easy.

The Sandbar & Grill is a local favorite and a great choice for a Monterey dining experience.


** A note to our customers **

We sincerely apologize for raising some of our menu prices… our cost for crab and scallops has doubled over the past two months. We hope these increases are temporary so we may lower those prices again in the near future. Other delicious seafood options have been mostly unaffected by these sharp increases: Calamari, sand dabs and other fresh local fish, prawns, clams, mussels and oysters. We’re doing our best to keep our online menus current but prices are subject to change without notice.

Hope to see you soon! Craig & Lynn
