THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS The Sandbar Fish House & Market Restaurant Review

: Now that diners are used to Sandbar’s evening-only hours, the seafood eatery seems to have settled into a comfortable scene of its own. The basic menu doesn’t change much; clam chowder and crab salad are perennial and there’s always a spectacular sushi and sashimi of the day. But the oyster selection is in constant flux, depending on sources from East and West Coasts (Belon, Kumamoto, Deep Bay and Malpec are just a few of the contenders), and pink shrimp find favor in winter over the browns of summer. Salt-cured scallops get a quick marinating with sugar, and are then thinly sliced and served with a passion fruit purée. It’s tempting to imagine what the denizens of the Greyhound Bus depot across the street wonder about the white-tiled and brightly lit interior visible through large panes of glass. Perhaps they hardly notice the caviar tastings or the Key lime pie that is the standout dessert. In an environment where everything stands out, nothing does.
