We have eaten here twice in the last month. The food is delicious. The site is spectacular, and everyone was very helpful. Our favorite dishes were the shrimp scampi, the tuna nachos, the calamari, the fish tacos, the key lime chicken and the pecan encrusted salmon. And the mango mousse cheesecake is the best dessert I have EVER had!

Fabulous view on the water sitting inside by the window. The food was fabulous and the server..... Sarah was the best. So upbeat and a terrific server despite the crowded evening. She made you feel special and just so fun and welcoming. An absolute delight. Ask for her and you will be well taken care of. The special..... Cobia Fish... More

We decided on getting a late dinner here. The small bar area was inviting and so was Karen, our bartender/wait staff. The food was served quickly and cooked to perfections. Two of our party do not eat meat or fish. Both found a very good entree,hence a favorable vegan rating, but it would have been better if there was more... More

So sad, this restaurant could be so wonderful because the view is spectacular and the people are so nice. Hate to be so negative but the food is really of poor quality and, after we went, discovered that many of our neighbors had similar experiences.

The Sandy Hook is a staple in Matlacha and we always make a point of eating here when we're down. Good menu for food and drinks and the service is always good!

We went here with some friend and had a great meal. I had the blackened grouper that was the best I have ever had. My husband had a seafood pasta, he said was good. We did have their onion rings which were huge, but the breading to onion ratio was way off, we did not like them but there were... More

Boyfriend had 12oz prime rib. I had the shrimp fettuccine He wanted the larger size which he ordered but they came to table and said they could give him smaller size He agreed, said it was the best prime rib he ever had. Melted in his mouth. I tried a bite and it really was delicious. My shrimp and fettuccine... More

Very friendly upbeat staff in an incredible atmosphere with a great water view. Hubby enjoyed ribs, Chicken wasn't so spectacular. 😞 Probably won't return despite Atmosphere & view because the food wasn't that spectacular :( and there are more competitive values in area.

Sorry I do not like to write negative reviews, but just not a fan of this place. Average food without much flavor. Not worth another visit from us.
