Serving Muskegon for More Than 35 Years

The Sandbar has been Muskegon’s favorite place to meet friends and grab amazing grub for nearly four decades. If our walls could talk, we’d get an earful! Sandbar is truly a legacy.

In 2018, Kristi DuShane became the community favorite’s newest proprietor. With more than 30 years experience in the food and beverage industry, Kristi is an expert in customer service and restaurant management.

“People visit the Sandbar for the ice cold beer, our delicious comfort food, and our homey and welcoming atmosphere,” Kristi shares.

To carry the torch of a beloved establishment like Sandbar is no easy task. Long-time regulars agree that the legend, that is Sandbar, is alive and well with Kristi at the helm.

More Food

And Breakfast TOO!

During the height of the pandemic, the Sandbar listened to its customers and added breakfast to its offerings. During an uneasy time, it was a risk. It paid off in spades!

Today, Sandbar opens everyday at 7am for their early morning breakfast crowd! On the menu you’ll find omelets, breakfast sandwiches, and you can never forget the always adored Bloody Mary’s and mimosas.

This addition expanded Sandbar’s kitchen from one individual to a team of four. With a fry station, a grill, and the more robust offerings, the kitchen is always hopping!

 

Wednesday nights are special at Sandbar!

Join us for Lori’s Wednesday Night Specials!

What started as an occasional offering has now become a staple that draws in weekly crowds. Depending on the night, Lori may whip up anything from chicken alfredo and beef stroganoff to meatloaf, goulash with garlic toast, and chicken and dumplings. The Sandbar’s Wednesday night specials are comfort foods that transport you to simpler times.

Visit us every Wednesday to see what seasonal offering Lori will whip up next!

The waitress was super nice, if it was not for her great attitude I would have refused to pay. The Philly was... tasteless, I could not finish it. It was like eating cardboard. The jalapeño popper was disgusting, it was served cold with NO bacon or seasoning. I spit it back out, it tasted like wax. I could make a better one over a camp fire. The famous wings were ok, but they were way to over seasoned. I wish I went somewhere else. 🙁read more

Food was decent, service extremely friendly. Only reason it is 4 star is the one person working the bar and dining... room made service a little slower than one might expect. If you have the time to wait though (45-60 minutes total time), it is worth the wait.read more

Awesome Breakfast. And because not many people think about going to a bar for breakfast there's not a wait for seating... nor a long wait for food.read more

Sandbar is by far one of favorite dive bars in Muskegon! Service is amazing, food is always hot, beer is ice cold, and... prices are great. A casual place to meet and catch up during winter months or after fun in the sun.read more

There are some characters it was a experience. Not a upscale joint just bare bones old bar. Better than djs on par with... pop a top maybe depending on night. Regular clientele with a dash of riff raff.read more
