Head here after a day at the beach, freshly sunburned, with sand between your toes. Down the road from Sandbanks Provincial Park, this former diner has a party vibe that just won’t quit, between the washrooms labelled “Dudes” and “Dudettes” and a serious sound system propelled by the Clash, Bob Seger and Talking Heads. Reserve the screened-in porch for a feast of Fogo Island crab legs, buttery lobster rolls on pain au lait and Manitoulin Island trout niçoise salad that pops with pickled green beans and lemony crème fraîche. Wash them down with Parsons Hula Hoop Sour beer or a Huff Estates pinot gris. - En Route Magazine
We fell in love with Prince Edward County - like everyone does! After a weekend invite to pick grapes with friends at Domain Darius the decision to find our own spot to call home began.
1705 County Road 12, had just what we wanted! Roadside restaurant with land, trees and a potential to become anything we wanted. We took the leap and started to build our dream restaurant -Sand and Pearl Oyster Bar is the result of our efforts!
A place to eat, play and collaborate with friends - old and new. A space without limitations to express ourselves with food and the things we love! Campfires, yoga, live music, theatre, family…
Join us in the summer and fall in love too…
xx Nathan & Nicole

Hubbs Creek Vineyard — Beloved Battista Calvieri was one of the first people Nathan and Nicole met in PEC. They became friends at a wine harvest dinner in 2013 and have been drinking and serving his wine every since.(when he isn’t sold out!) If arriving in the County from the West, make a stop at Hubb’s Tasting room in Hillier and tell Battista we say, hi!
