A sign was posted that stated your entire party had to be seated together at the same time. Our 8 family members were seated together at a large table and we let our hostess know that Charles might be arriving late due to being at the hospital; the hostess pointed to 2 chairs in the corner by the bathroom and said that we could just pull a chair up when Charles arrived. The restaurant was very busy due to it being Fathers day and they appeared to be short staffed because we had to flag down our waitress each time we needed a refill on our drinks (and they will not allow you to refill your own drink at the entrance). Charles called us from the parking lot and said he was going to come in and eat with the family. When my husband went to bring Charles inside he was refused entry, they stated that he could not sit with our family at our table and that he would have to stand in line and wait to be seated at his own table. My husband asked to speak to the manager, and not only the Manger, but his wife and another employee were rude and dismissive to my husband, which in turn upset my husband. He tried to ask for an exception to the rule, since Charles had just left the hospital, had not eaten yet, we were not done with our meals and he just wanted to update our family on his wifes condition and it was Fathers day after all. They still refused to admit Charles, said he had to wait behind 6 other families and that they would not be able to seat him at our table even once he made it to the front of the line. My husband and the owner had some choice words and then told us that they wanted us to leave, and that they were calling the police. We did not finish our meal, we simply left. I understand the need for rules, I know that it holds up other patrons if a party sits down and everyone is not there, then the table is occupied longer than usual, all I am saying is that if you are looking for a compassionate, family owned, love thy neighbor as thy self service, this restaurant is not the place to eat. Our family owns and runs 3 successful businesses in Fayetteville and we would never treat anyone the way we were treated, we choose to spend our money and dine at your restaurant which we have done for years. Now that we see the type of people who run this establishment, we will take our business elsewhere.

I leave stuffed full of good food every time I visit. Never once have I left unsatisfied with the service or the food.
PROS: good food, good selection, good service
CONS: packed on Sundays which means a very long wait

This seafood buffet-style restaurant is not want you want in seafood unless your into "every thing fried" mood. The fried shrimp had no taste, the fried oysters tasted like the fried scallops and the fried fish, be it flouder, trout or blues all seemed to taste the same. I would not recommend this restaurant unless your into "same tasting" fried seafood.

I try to go this restaurant whenever I'm in town. This is the best buffet styled restaurant that I've ever been to. It is clean and the wait staff is very helpful..Be prepared to stay a while!

I've been going to the Sandpiper since 2001 and it's the best food I've ever had in a restaurant. Nothing has changed there either since then and SHOULD NEVER change a thing about it.
The veggies are soft and delectable i.e field peas and baby limas and the entrees are incredible, especially the sausage links. They even give you your own pitcher of tea( sweet only) like it should be.
The banana pudding is perfect with just the right amount of brown.
Plus it's priced reasonable too. Fried chicken and bbq is good too.My name is Sterling Ashby and I approved this message.
