Scene: Just beyond a stretch of junkyards, The SandBar is a small yellow box of a room with a covered wooden deck perched high above a picturesque marina. The real action is out front, though, where legions of young professionals gather at the 12 beach volleyball courts and three cornhole sets to play hard and drink cans of Bud Light.
Eats: Well-prepared bar food, but nothing too adventurous. If you're real hungry, a juicy one-pound burger should fill you up. The fried chicken salad with ranch dressing is a less-filling alternative. Wings and veggie wraps round out the options. (Michael Schiaparelli)
