Something Special All Week Long

Mix incredible bay views with live music, lunch specials, happy hours, and other special events. It all happens throughout the week at Sanderlings, your Santa Cruz beach restaurant.


Tiki Fridays 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm, May 24 - Aug 30, 2019

Hawaiian hits, Beach Boys tunes, and Caribbean and calypso beats by Victor Ohana Band, Island Breeze, and Steel Drums by Timo Guttierez set the tone for Tiki Fridays. Join us for sips and savory bites, including four hand-crafted cocktails by Lindsay Eshleman (served in tiki mugs, naturally) and Chef de Cuisine Skye McDougall's inspired tiki-style appetizers. 


Live Tunes 8:00pm - 11:00pm, All Summer

Join us at Sanderlings every Friday and Saturday this summer from 8:00pm - 11:00pm for local live music featuring an array of genres from Calypso and Jazz to Pop and Flamenco.
