Amelia Island's only TRUE restaurant that is located directly on the beach and has oceanfront dining where you can put your toes in the sand. There is a large covered patio right on the the beach, tables in the sand, and the Ocean Oasis Beach Bar that has the only unobstructed view of the beach and ocean on the island. There is live entertainment on the patio almost every night, featuring everything from Reggae to original music by some of the best local artists in town.

Ok food but good beach location

Food Most of the food was fried, we had the calamari and the chicken wings. The calamari was a little fatty but tasty and the wings were good. Service This was quick to serve the food and beer but slow to pay the bill. Location It is right on the beach so a great location

While walking the beach we heard the music and decided to give it a shot. Turned out to be a nice fun place right on the beach. We had an appetizer and some drinks, these were good but we did not have dinner so we can't comment on the food in general. The staff was friendly and attentive to our... More

The restaurant was extremely busy when we arrived and we had to wait for a hostess to seat us. It was totally worth the wait. The food was good the wait staff friendly and professional. There was live entertainment and the views incredible.

We don't go to Sandy Bottoms for the food, but for the ambiance of eating on the beach. On the sand actually, although the large patio that fronts the ocean is cool, too. Don't get fancy with the food which I'd rate as a B. Overworked wait staff at peak times tries hard. Go at twilight for a romantic evening,... More

The food was typical bar food. Good size portions and friendly staff. Live music frequently. Don't miss the Salted Caramel Cheesecake!

The location is great given that it's right on the beach and right next door to the seaside amelia inn.....service was pretty good. The day we went they were having new furniture delivered and one of the employees told us on her way out of the door that we had to sit at the bar or on the patio because... More

Happy hour says it all! 2-7 on the beach. Every day relax with a few $2 beers and snacks to unwind after a grueling session sitting on the beach and enjoying the warm Atlantic ocean
