The Sandbar Seafood Restaurant

1535 Johnston St, Vancouver, BC V6H 3R9
The Sandbar Seafood Restaurant on Granville Island is a 300-seat fresh seafood and fish restaurant in the heart of Vancouver's world-famous Granville Island, perched over the waterfront with views from every seat. Guests can enjoy the bustle of the market, the non-stop energy of False Creek and the shores of Vancouver's West End. Walk up the wood post staircase, the only item that was salvaged from the historic Mulvaney's Restaurant site, and elevate your view of the city waterfront. The busy animated open kitchen gives the guest that "Granville Island Market feeling" plus an up-close look at the chefs as they prepare their seafood creations. The Sandbar serves up the freshest seafood in a warm, sophisticated atmosphere. Suspended above the bar in the Teredo Lounge is Kivi, a 24 foot salmon troller hand built by Allan Farrell, one of the West Coast's finest craftsman of wooden boats. Fresh oyster bar, tapas, Hoshi's Sushi Bar, dinner and dancing. More...

Great location for a special occasion!

Recently had a family event here and it was great! We had a dedicated server to our party, which was great - it meant we never got ignored. The seafood here is very fresh and tastes wonderful! The fresh sheet has a great selection - highly recommend the sable fish (black cod) it was very good. The wine list is somewhat limited, but they have picked some of the best wines from BC, which is nice. The rooftop deck is one of the best in Vancouver! Just amazing to sit up there and watch the boats go by... highly recommend Sandbar for locals and tourists alike!

This restaurant is one of my favourite destinations on a sunny day. I prefer outside seating, which positions you directly below Granville Bridge. Great view, great food. Service is always friendly. We ordered: Eggs Benny bacon, toasted english muffin, hollandaise, roasted potatoes $12 Wild Salmon Burger grilled $15 The only dish which disappointed us was the red beat salad. It used to be my top item on their menu. Not sure what happened, however, portion was extremely small and taste was off.

Sandbar is in a fabulous location, under the Granville bridge and overlooking the vista of blue, but the food is only average. Funny: all five of us, when given our menus, said the same thing: 'This is hard to look at!' They really should hire a good graphic artist and give it a makeover. Someone that charges more $ but does good work. Ask for a table upstairs.

Sure, there’s no shortage of seafood options on Granville Island, but you can’t beat the view at The Sandbar. Tucked away under the Granville Street Bridge, the waterfront restaurant treats diners to a lovely view of False Creek and the city skyline. The diverse menu has a little something for everyone (sushi, seafood platters, pastas, mussels and clams) and will appeal to devout seafood fans and picky eaters alike, with plenty of landlubber alternatives such as salads, flatbreads, steak and even pad Thai. We love the signature Sandbar cedar plank salmon served with rice and seasonal veggies.
