I don't know if the economy has hit the Sandbar hard or if there is new management, but what I do know is that the Sandbar has changed... My first experience was 6 years ago (2006) and the food, service, ambiance was great. Visit #2 was about a year after my first and I was blown away!!! The seafood tower and entrees were fresh and impressive. Unfortunately my last couple of visits have been sub par and my last visit was the last nail in the coffin. Spending $30+ on an entree at a nice restaurant is totally acceptable, however when your entree arrives and is the size of a Weight Watchers meal, it's a problem. The piece of fish was small, which is not a huge issue, however the fish was accompanied by 3 small vegetables and, at most, 1/3 of a cup of plain cooked rice. Come on Sandbar, put a few more vegetables and some more rice on the plate and while you're at it, maybe opt for a wild rice mix for extra colour/texture and season the vegetables please. Totally disappointing.

My husband and I were searching for a local diner/deli for a refreshing lunch. We initially went to Inno, but they do not provide a dine-in option (no tables & chairs). My husband and I then went next door to Polonia and while the restaurant was empty and decor on the kitschy side, we decided to give it a chance. The staff was friendly and efficient and the food delicious. The deli carries authentic polish meats and cheeses and the homemade borscht was to die for! I emptied the bowl and vowed to try making borscht at home. We both left with a smile on our faces and will certainly return. The $15 price tag for 2 sandwiches (freshly made), a big bowl of borscht, a polish donut and a soda, can't be beat!
