The waitress was nice but the food was not the worst but not the best either. My fiance and I had the American burgers... and 2 of the same cocktail.If you want a side like fries, be prepared to pay extra as it didn't come with the meal.My fiance ordered bacon for an extra $3 but only got one strip. 🤨 The burger wasn't super big and to add an extra patty would have been $6. I added the seasoned fries for an extra $5, which were decent but again not the best.The cocktails were delicious but with how much they were, about $12, there wasn't as much alcohol as we thought.The outside seating was for reservations only, which is fine as we didn't make one. The view to the beach was beautiful though!read more

We love stopping here as we stay nearby often when we visit Rockaway. I loved my Steamed Clams and everyone else was... happy with their meals. The Garden Salad, as a starter, could be a little bigger with more toppings for the price. Other than that, nice prices on drinks and good pours for the adults - don't change that please 😊 Also appreciate the service, enjoy the decor inside with painting on the walls and other themed elements, along with knowing it's a family owned business.read more

Crowded, they don't pick up the phone, ran out of fries (their poutine is legendary) and very expensive. Food was all... excellent. Staff very friendly, but long wait for takeout. I'd go back but would make reservations.read more

We stumbled across this place on a day that was a little cloudy. Even though the weather wasn't great people were... eating outside on the patio as well as inside. The food was good, and the portions the right size. Be having amazing waitress with the most beautiful vivid blue eyes. She had a great personality and was patient with my crazy ordering habits. We will definitely be going back when we're in town. I mentioned the place to my daughter, who lives down there, and she said she loved that place tooread more

What a wonderful experience. We've stayed in Rockaway before and now I'm sorry I missed this last time. If you blink,... you might miss it. It's at the end of the street at the beach. They have a great selection of drinks and the food menu rivals everything you'll find on the coast. It's not a huge menu, but that's a plus. Our server, Maia, was awesome. She made us feel at home. I'd highly recommend the Sand Dollar to anyone staying, or even passing through, Rockaway Beach.read more

We ate at a lot of different places on our trip to the Oregon coast and this was by far our worst experience. The food... was horrible. We had the fish and chips and the scallops with saffron sauce. Neither were edible. The scallops were the worst I’ve ever had. Very off in texture and color and they had an incredibly bitter flavor. The fish was not any better, the batter was not cooked all the way and the fish was also off in texture and color. Grey and rubbery. I’m used to flaky white fresh tasting fish and this was not even edible. Very disappointed that we wasted our money here.read more

The last 2 times I visited this restaurant I walked out. The first incident was waiting several minutes to be seated. ... I was first in line. A couple came into the waiting area several minutes after I walked in. The moment they walked in they were acknowledged and I was ignored. So, I walked out. The second incident happened a year later. After being seated in the lounge (I wanted to have a drink and dinner) I was ignored for almost 30 minutes. There were 2 people working in the lounge and people were being served from staff coming in and out of the restaurant. After the 30 minute wait I walked out and went home. I felt embarrassed being there and will never recommend anyone to this place.read more

One of my favorite places on the coast. Dinner is better then lunch even if you order the same thing. Great music.... Chill times.2020 update. they got rid of my favorite menu item... and replaced it with something that made me some just the same.I never have to ask for anything, everything brought to me was perfect. Maya (sp?) was not at all intimidated by the freedom I gave her and brought me the perfect food for the evening. thank you so much!read more

They have gluten free clam chowder, so that was a surprise and was yummy. It's a rare thing to find. The aioli that... came with the calamari and the euro fries was amazing. But the 2 pasta dishes we had lacked flavor and were very oily. No seasonings. Bacon and egg linguini and the clam linguini... could have been great if it had either a sauce or seasonings. If you use olive oil as your sauce, you need to season it, and probably use WAY less oil.read more

We came to eat here on Thursday afternoon, it was a warm sunny day so we decided to request outdoor seating. When we... actually got outside I realized my 6 month old didn’t want to keep his sun hat on and it might be a little too bright and for him to be in direct sun while we wait for our food. I saw there was a shaded patio area and i asked if we could possibly get a table in the shade. The hostess told us it was the bar area (no problem, i had no idea it was the bar and we had 5 kids with us so i knew it wasn’t an option at that point) but the hostess gave a snarky tone and said, “And you have minors so you cant sit there.” Like yeah you just said it was the bar... I just felt her last comment was unnecessary and I didn’t appreciate the tone she was taking, but I brushed it off. We said okay and she went to help another family who were waiting to get seated.After chatting with my boyfriend we decided it was probably a better idea after all if we sat inside, I didn’t want my baby to get sun burnt! I get up to ask the hostess if it was actually possible to get the table inside after all. Her response was that we would have to wait while she sat the family she was currently helping, (which again, is fine, i wasn’t rushing her i just wanted to inform her we would like a table inside) but then she put her hands up and gave another snarky remark, “I can't do two things at once” and speed walks away from us. I told her, “No one asked you to.” And informed my sister in law i would not be giving this restaurant my business. My boyfriend and I ended up walking across the street with our baby and ate at Old Oregon SmokeHouse. We got amazing service and exceptional food! There was also shaded seating at the tables. My sister in law stayed to eat at the Sand Dollar with her family and she said the food was fine. Unfortunately with this experience, i will not be giving the sand dollar my business when we come back in September.read more

The menu doesn't have everything and the one online is out of date (no more chicken pasta). My wife and I ate here for... our anniversary dinner and it was just right. We ordered the cod fish/chips and the chicken tacos. The fish was excellent (I'd ask for extra crispy though), fries were good, tacos were great too. We also had the raspberry mocktails, yum. We recommend this place. Just don't sit by the kitchen door, it's noisy in there.read more

The food was absolutely terrible. I got the surf and turf for 45$ the crab was old and yellow . There wasn’t even a... full steak and it was the toughest steak I’ve ever had in my life. Sooo hard to chew!! There was a huge party before us so it took 45 mins to get our food but it wasn’t the waiters fault he was actually very nice. Loved the view . No one else was wearing masks but I’m not here to judge that. Legit the worst meal I’ve ever had in my life, didn’t want to complain to the waiter because it wasn’t his fault.read more

We were treated like less than being in existence. Attempted to get service as staff walked right by us by asking,... calling to staff by saying ma'am, standing up to get attention, staff looked other direction, failed to acknowledge me, a veteran, like we should not even be in the establishment. I will never give this restaurant any kind of positive acknowledgement to anyone traveling to Oregon.read more

Phenomenal food, was quite pleased with it! The shrimp scampi and the soda battered cod are deliciou . The scampi at... first feels like its gonna be too rich in flavor, but it smooth sauce really takes you in. And the cod! Oh it was so soft and fluffy and juicy I couldn't believe it! Paired with a beautiful view of the coastline its above and beyond worth the price here!read more

Really great food & excellent service. We came in tired & hungry, were seated right away. The server overheard my... husband saying he was cold & immediately let us know he was going to turn up the heat, then he returned with a mug of hot water to warm his hands - and that was before we even ordered our food! I had a chicken sandwich with melted brie & mushrooms and my husband had a burger with bacon & we split some fries. They were all great & perfectly cooked. Very reasonable prices, generous portions & excellent quality. Will definitely be back.read more
