Good food, good drink, slow service

Very very slow service, but the food was great, the view was FANTASTIC....you are right on the beach. I'd eat there again.

It had a nice happy hour & great music. Food wasn't consistently good. Dined here a couple of times for the convenience and the atmosphere.

Normally I would not mind such slow service on a vacation but we had our four year old son with us and kids like to eat in a reasonable amount of time. The food was okay.

Wow! What an unexpected pleasure. You are right on the beach. You have a choice of sitting at a table/large beach umbrella and your feet in the sand; or outside on the covered patio. Good food. We tried the "appetizer" Caribbean Nachos; delicious and big enough for a meal. The fried shrimp are so yummy! Had a cool drink.

Easy bar and grill, right on the beach with a really cool vibe. Definitely your $11 cheeseburger kind of place, but the food was good and the location was perfect!

The restaurant is right on the beach so you can come as you are. We ate there twice and both times the food was great and the staff friendly. There was live music at dinner time and a upbeat party atmosphere. It wasn't to loud or too drunk just people having a good time. The portions are large and most... More

I first went to Sandy Bottoms a year ago and the bartender was named Leslie. She is a fantastic bartender with an awesome personality. I have traveled back to Sandy Bottoms a few times from Savannah just to see her. I went with my family once and sat at a table and had awful service. The waitress messed up the... More

Sandy Bottoms has excellent food and service. The daily special meals offerings are specially chosen by the chefs each morning to highlight the fresh seafood available for the day. The service was excellent and the prices and drinks during happy hour are wonderful. Eat outside under the patio and enjoy the sound of the surf.

Had great duo playing guitars and singing Sunday right on the beach. Sand in your toes, good food, cold drinks, great music. Can't get any better. The appetizer plate we had was huge, tasty and inexpensive. Can't wait to go back.
