This is our go to place. Consistently great food. Very clean. Thai and American food. Beer and wine. Salmon dinner is wonderful. Favorite item is the grilled chicken wrap with cole slaw.

My husband and I went with a friend for dinner. Our friend eats here often and raves about the Thai food. He was 100% correct - the Thai food was wonderful. My husband had Pad Thai. I had two appetizers for my dinner - Tangy Shrimp and Veggie Rolls. We both enjoyed our food very much. They also have an... More

No matter how well behaved your children are do not take them to The Sand Trap. Sue, the owner is not child friendly. She will make your visit as uncomfortable as possible until you leave. I can't comment on the food. We never even got to order. Our children didn't make any noise. They stayed in their seats. My 3... More

We ate dinner here on a Friday night around 7:15. We waited about 15 minutes for a table and then another 15 minutes to order. There were several specials for the night, but we ordered 2 Thai dishes from the regular list of Entrees. The vegetarian Panang Curry was good, with nice vegetables (and tofu if you want it). My...

A typical sports bar atmosphere with a lot of dark wood and multiple tv screens, but the food is far beyond sports bar fare. The menu includes a wide choice of steaks and seafood and also a good selection of Thai food. My wife had a seafood stir-fry and I had a tilapia with mango salsa. Both were excellent and... More

As usual food is good and our waiter was very quick & thorough! I thought the Pad Phed Pha (sp?) did not have enough eggplant which is supposed to be the base ingredient compared to last year. It was still delicious though but I will not have it again if they continue to skimp. My wife had their lobster roll... More

Wow- I really enjoyed my dinner. If I lived in the area this place would be on the top of my list. Great friendly and attentive service. Good drinks. And best of all, my meal was very tasty as was my lemon soup (really tasty). I'd easily give this place a 5-star rating if the atmosphere was more- subdued or... More
