April Photo Contest Winner
Stacy B. is making all of her friends up north jealous by showing them her drink with the view of the beach at the Sandbar. Stacy says, “We visit as often as we can, about 5 times per year and cannot wait to call AMI our permanent home. I have a bit of trouble dealing with Michigan winters, so my loving husband decided to make my Valentines Day extra special this year. He scheduled a trip to the island with dinner at our favorite restaurant – The Sandbar! He knows the perfect way to my heart. 🙂
We used to live there 31 years ago, but moved back to Michigan to raise our children around family. When our oldest son was married he planned a destination wedding on AMI. The Sandbar catered it and did a fabulous job. Whenever we have friends visit, we always take them to The Sandbar. Thank you for 30+ years of wonderful meals!! We love everything about The Sandbar – the food, the atmosphere, the way your staff always makes us feel appreciated, Mr. Chiles checking on us while dining there, and the improvements. There is just too much to mention!! I could go on and on…..”. Wow, thanks Stacy. We love to hear all the great memories our guests have made with us. We hope you enjoy your complimentary $50 gift card.
