Customer Review

I had an amazing tea. I like my steak med/well which in turn can make it quite tuff. But this wasn't the case it was the best steak I have ever had. Well done to the chef. I am staying the night and I am very very happy with the accommodation. Five star service and food.

Thank you to the all the staff today who helped create a seamless lunch for our group of 13 today.
The service was really wonderful and lunch really was delicious.
It was our first time dining with you and will happily be returning. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Have eaten here several times. The view is great. The menu is large with lots of options. Today we had the porterhouse steak and pumpkin curry. Both were enjoyable. The serving sizes are also generous. Def worth a visit.

Attention Area Managers!!!!
More staff, More staff, More staff.....!

The Sandy Pub Front Sports Bar is our beloved local pub and it is a truly a delightful experience each week, week in week out. The atmosphere, the overall local vibe of the place is top-notch, making it a favourite spot for the local community to gather and enjoy some quality time.

First and foremost, I must commend Mick and his Front Bar team (Pia, Max, Oscar, Lewis ets) for always creating such a warm and inviting environment. The Front Bar exudes a sense of camaraderie, respect and unity, which is exactly what you want from your local pub.

However, as much as I adore my pub, there's one aspect that could use some improvement. On busy days, it's clearly evident that Mick and the team are working tirelessly to ensure everyone is taken care of. While they do their best, it's clear that they could use some extra hands during peak hours to maintain the great level of service we've come to expect at our local. Time for the Area Manager to step up and fix.

In conclusion, The Sandy Front Sports Bar is an outstanding place that has won the hearts of the community. While it's truly a gem in our community, a bit more support and additional staff on busy days would ensure a better experience for staff and patrons alike.

Came here for a Parma Meal with my husband and it didn't disappoint. Food was great and the service was excellent. We got served by Catherine and she was a delight, we got served really quickly and overall the service was great. The chicken crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside and the chips were nice and crispy and not too salty. Will definitely be coming back for date night.

Didn't stay at the hotel.
Enjoyed a great pub meal with the family today.
Ribs were perfect. Not over sauced and fell off the bone. Caesar calamari salad was tasty.
Good wine selection with options at reasonable prices.
Overall good experience and recommend.

For the rooms, they are small with no space for putting your clothes if staying for a few days. The area is ok interms of restaurant or food shopping. The hotel is closed to a train station. The beds were too soft for my liking.

Visited this place for lunch on our way to half moon bay. Nice vibe, ample seating and clean area. The staff is friendly. They have a sufficient range of food options in the menu. Had a mushroom burger with added grilled chicken. Loved it. Generous portions for the price. The chicken bao buns were tasty too.

Ordered from table looking forward to the lobster but unavailable so ordered the chicken ceased worst I've had in my life egg wasn't even cooked properly no option to remove anchovies. Daughter had the pork ribs which she said were very fatty...won't be back.
Michael Julier
This place exceeded my expectations. My Daughter and I ordered the Feasting Board to share. We were expecting to order more food after. By the time we had cleared the Board we were full. All food presented was very tasteful. Great value for money. The menu varied and atmosphere was as you would expect from a large pub.

Have come to the bistro here before, and every time it has been excellent. Although it was very busy this Easter break, the team were super friendly and the food was of exceptional quality.

The eating area's ambience is also modern and pleasant.

Highly recommend!!

One of the best pub meals I've had in a while! Hubby and I walked in randomly for dinner on Easter Friday after a beach walk and were not disappointed! Absolutely demolished our plates of chicken parma and fish and chips. Excellently cooked fish, crispy chips, and super fast service using the online ordering system. We'll be back!
Matthew Holmes
The food was excellent! The Southern Fried Chicken Burger was absolutely delicious! Very friendly staff also!

Would definitely come back!

Thank you Sandringham Hotel!
Every time we come to the Sandy we are always walk into a welcoming and professional establishment. The food is excellent! And the server Josh is always helpful and a legit champ!

Had a wonderful lunch at the Sandy Hotel yesterday - friendly staff and great food. However was very disappointed that the outside tables for 4 people had been removed which didn't enable my wife and I to enjoy outside dinning, which we have done constantly for many Sundays and the reason which specifically make us visit the Sandy (all the way from Templestowe).

The staff were polite and friendly and the venue itself has a spectacular view, however, they have a very limited number of vegetarian options and the only one I found appealing they had run out of. When I asked for a bowl of chips, they said they couldn't sell me a bowl of chips and if I wanted chips I would need to order a kids meal (which is $4 more and would have to come with some form of meat). I understand there are shortages but the solution was quite illogical.

Excellent value! Spotless, comfy room, with no noise transfer from pub. Very comfy bed, generously stocked fridge and coffee area, and 10% off pub meals. Free off-street parking, water views (albeit over roof of bistro and its aircon outlets), and across the road from the beach. If you're OK with stairs, you cannot fault this hotel for value and friendly service!

Pre covid there was table service and experienced wait staff. Now order at bar and pleasant but very young wait staff. Food was very good but wines ? By the glass we tried 4 different ones. All poor. Couldn't finish any of them. Tank beer excellent. Good for young families (which comprised most of the clientele) but doubt we'll be back.

There seems to be ample parking beneath the venue. Order at the bar and they'll bring out the food to your table. They were very busy on a Thursday evening but the food came out pretty quickly after ordering at the till.

The best share plate we had was the sweet potato fries, crunchy with the perfect dip. We wanted seconds for the fries but already had so much food! We also enjoyed the calamari, which was seasoned well, soft all throughout. The Korean fried chicken was too salty for my taste however and I wouldn't have it again.

For mains, we had the bbq pork ribs, served with a large baked potato, coleslaw and grilled corn. Pork fell easily off the bone and the dish was delicious and filling overall. The seafood paella was surprisingly good, the rice was soft and full of flavour. We also had lobster and steak. The lobster was cooked well but it had a strange, old taste as though frozen for a long time. The steak tasted much better, quite tender at medium rare and bare except for salad and chips.

In all, the Sandy served up good food with impersonal but effective service, in a large and airy space, which was fit for a casual evening with friends. We certainly enjoyed the food, had very little interaction with staff, and had a spacious corner to ourselves for a long catch up.
Deb Begg
The main meal was outstanding, even though we had to wait 45 minutes for our food to arrive. As we were there for a special occasion we decided to order some desserts to celebrate. After waiting for nearly an hour we gave up waiting as it was too late and we had young kids with us.

Very disappointing, as the main meal was delicious and we were all saying how we'd definitely go back, but now, not so sure.
Brendan Thomson
Great combination accommodation meal and drink package. Quiet,comfortable room. Downside was the hot water was just above lukewarm. Definitely no need to add cold water to the hot in the shower. Would definitely stay again
Jane Oliver-Rutherford
It was my firs time here thanks to some trivia friends of mine and I was floored. The staff are so nice and smiles, it was also a busy night but their coordination and attention to service was impeccable. The food was divine, my eye fillet was exactly as I asked (Medium) and the prawns were so fresh I thought they were caught that day. Decent choice in alcohol and the overall atmosphere was electric in the Sports Bar. Definitely coming back

Beer on tap selection was great... menu carried a good variety with plenty of options for all tastes. Has the Southern Fried Chicken Berger... awesome.
The only negative was the tables didn't have everything you needed, so you ended up walking around finding salt/pepper and coasters etc from various tables.
The food was tops ??'?
Adrian Gale
Large portions, we had a parmy, slow cooked meat pie decent mash, peas and onion rings. Pumpkin curry, and southern fried burger all meals were well presented not bland over or under cooked nice plates. We are not locals but recommend it with a ocean view and great atmosphere what's not to like.

Great Bar with nice view from the balcony. The Furphys was only $7 a pint!!! Also, the steak was pretty good, the only downside was the waiter at the bar where we ordered our steak wasn't that friendly and hence the 4 stars.

Terrible service, came to our table after around 30 minutes and then took another 45 minutes for us to receive our food. The food was overall average, way too big and looked like dogs breakfast. I then wanted some dessert at around 2:30 and after several asks for a waiter, one finally came at 3:15 and were told that you can only order desserts before 3:00 after they didnt send a waiter for 45 minutes and their excuse was that they were under the pump. I will not be returning here because of this terrible experience.

Excellently priced Seniors Meals. My partner and I had a steak and fish & chips which were delicious. Would not hesitate to return. Great views of Port Philip Bay were the plus.
Shirley Green
Had a family lunch at Sandy recently. We were seated on the balcony and found it hard to hear each other. Next time, we will sit inside. The food and service was good.
