Restaurant Review

Sandi Pointe Coastal Bistro, formerly Mac's Restaurant, hasn't yet experienced a full summer season, though from early indications of this restaurants success, it expects to be one of the better fine dining restaurants in the area and certainly in Somers Point.

Since Sandi Pointe has only been open a few months and they have not gone through the busy summer season, along with reader feedback and critic reviews have not yet reached a level to more accurately asses it's success, this review can be considered preliminary

The restaurant is operated by co-owners Dan and Sandi Anderson.

Dan Anderson was the former general manager at the Ram's Head Inn, and worked closely with his wife Sandi who was the dining room manager before coming to the Sandi Pointe.

The kitchen is in expert hands of Executive Chef Robert Bell. With formal schooling at Ecole de Gastronomie Francaise, and a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America (CIA), he began his culinary career as Garde Manger at Resorts International, and served as Executive Chef at the Doublegate Country Club in Albany, GA, before returning to his native southern New Jersey.

Chef Bell presides over a menu that offers a bistro variety of shore favorites with a flavorful twist. The selections are mainly pure proteins including fresh fish, beef, and crab meat, that are simply prepared with the style of classic cooking and sauces.

The décor and ambience has a casual elegance.

For dinner starters, when available try the creative Filet Mignon Sliders eared filet with applewood smoked bacon compote, Caramelized shallots, and sweet Hawaiian rolls; or the Sandi Pointe Crab Cakes, three mini cakes with meyer lemon beurre blanc, garden state salsa, cajun tartar sauce.

For dinner entrees, try the Lobster and Crab Alfredo, with angel hair pasta tossed in cream sauce, basil, topped with sauteed seafood; The Black Grouper Piccata with fresh meyer lemon, capers, tomato concasse, and fresh basil; and for landlubbers, try the Filet Mignon with fonseca port wine sauce.

Save room for dessert, try the Sandi Pointe “ It’s It “, their version of this west coast treat, vanilla ice cream wafered between oatmeal cookies and covered with chocolate sauce; or the Chocolate Molten Lava Cake, with raspberry sauce and chocolate ice cream

For dessert blueberry buckle, banana cream pie and Molten lava cake to mention a few.

The Anderson's are also wine connoisseurs that can help diners pair meals with a wine selection. There are also several premier beers on tap.

The Sandi Pointe is child friendly and has a very good kids menu with a variety of reasonably priced tasty selections.
