The location is great - right on the beach with patio seating as well as an inside bar, dining, and dance floor. We were there during 'Happy Hour" and even though the entertainment was excellent. (I would give "The Macy's" Phil & Kathy 5 stars plus.) the restaurant itself is just adequate. The food was good, however the wine was... More

Decided to go hear some local live music, The Macys, and had a few Yuenglings and a few appetizers. Our server Jersey was attentive and kept my beer mug filled. She was always available and making sure we were taken care of. The appetizer was a potato soup and crab dip which was excellent. We dined inside since the weather... More

Rode up from Jax, stopped to eat at Sandy Bottoms. Leslie warmed us up at the bar, and her menu suggestions were a hit. The food was great, served up hot and fast, and our glasses were never empty. Thanks, Leslie and the rest of the staff!!!

When you find a place with outstanding hush puppies, cole slaw, fish fingers, beachfront ambience and friendly folks (in our case, provided by a lovely lady named Leslie who combines expert bartending with flawless food service), you'd be crazy not to spend a few hours there. Sandy Bottoms sits on a beautiful stretch of the Atlantic on Amelia Island and,... More

Sandy Bottoms is a quintessential beach restaurant serving families during the day and offering a bit of beach night life in the evenings. I enjoy having a late breakfast or lunch out on the veranda overlooking the Main Beach area on Amelia Island as the families enjoy the pristine sand and warm ocean waves. There always seems to be a... More

Leslie is so polite, happy and an asset to Sandy Bottoms. I visit at least twice a week or more. She remembers all orders even though we were snowbirds.

Leslie is a pro - great attitude. Ocean view cannot be topped. Best gumbo on the island. Weekly specials and daily happy hours available with entertainment that's family oriented. Burgers, soups, chowder, and salads are fine eating. We visit from Ohio every year and enjoy everything about the "Bottoms" - service, food, atmosphere, and menu.

Another tough day in paradise, sitting at the outside beach bar listening to and watching the surf roll in. Had an excellent lunch and drinks. Happy Hour prices on drinks was a nice surprise. The bar keep Leslie was attentive and very pleasant which made the experience even better. Highly recommended.

We had a good seafood meal on the opened dinning area directly off the beach. There was live music, good food, and a wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean. This was a great adventure that you will enjoy .

Terrible weather on Amelia Island today so we ended up at Sandy Bottoms for a couple of cool ones. From our bar perch we had an excellent view of the waves crashing the beach. Burgers were tasty, and service was attentive. Looks like it is big enough for a party; unfortunately time of day, day of week, and weather didn't... More
