The Sandbar is a popular hangout for Vancouver's yuppies and tourists alike. It's situated right underneath of Granville Bridge. Try to get get a table by the window so you can watch all the comings and goings in False Creek. In 2005 they raised an old fishing boat up on pillars to make a more interesting view than the grey wall that had previously covered the bridge support pillar. It was then restored (at least on the surface) to pristine condition.

Favorite Dish: They offer a wide selection of seafood, with a number of fresh items.
