Sandbar Seafood Restaurant1535 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Great View and Location!
Submitted Thursday, January 27, 2011 - 6:07pm [Dine in]

I was pleasantly surprised with the location and ambiance of this restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed the view and service. It was outstanding and a very good time. The front of house service staff seemed very busy but overall they were great. On the other hand, I was less than impressed with the sushi (appetizer) and the fish. If you are unsure of fusion restaurants, this is not one to come and try first. I think the executive chef has a long way to go with his menu choices. There was a distinct smell of sterno wafting throughout the patio area...it was very warm though! Overall, I will return to The Sandbar because of the ambiance and patio bar atmosphere.

This is our last resort restaurant. Having said that, I will always come here because there is such a wide variety of dishes on the menu that we both enjoy. Unfortunately, the staff here are very pushy and many times unprofessional. The food is worth the price. The HK BBQ is sometimes dry and is better other places. Oh and most importantly, They DONT accept credit cards. Many restaurants in Richmond are this way. I have a tendency to have a lack of trust with these 'cash only' businesses because many avoid paying taxes. Other then that, if you need to have a bite to eat at 2am, this is the place.

Hog Shack3900 Bayview Street, #160, Richmond
Boiled and Coated, not actually smoked.

I was excited to hear that a new BBQ was opening in Richmond. I was even more excited to read that their BBQ meat was smoked in their own smoker. Unfortunately, I have been to many great BBQ's in my life and this wasn't one of them. I know from experience that the ribs and brisket were far from smoked for the correct time in an actual smoker (should be 8 hrs or more in a wood fired smoker). I am sure that my ribs were boiled prior to being cooked up on a grill. Many Barbecue restaurants think that they can get away with this. Fortunately, for the sake of the people of Vancouver, let me tell you that this isn't authentic at all. The atmosphere was pretty good. I really like this location and hope the owners see this and read up on how to correctly prepare themselves for their future as a BBQ restaurant named 'Hog Shack'.
