Great location if you want good fried seafood while gazing at the ocean. Very laid back, good service and value! Delicious and freshly brewed iced tea, frozen cocktails and portions that need to be split. Walk right up from the beach and enjoy!

Whenever I come to Amelia Island, I make a point of dining at Sandy Bottoms. I love sitting outside feeling the breeze of the ocean and tasting the delicious food. The desserts are my favorite. Yesterday, stopped in for dessert, and our waitress, Kat, made the experience better than ever with her friendly smile and efficient service.

We had lunch at this restaurant and hamburgers are $10 and $11. Way too expensive. My husband had a hot dog and it was $8. We would not eat here again due to the prices. The food was good and atmosphere was great. Right on the beach.

We have been vacationing on Amelia Island for the last seven years. We discovered Sandy Bottoms last summer. This has become our favorite restaurant. You can't get any closer to the beach than their back deck. The food is delicious and fresh. And the servers have always been very friendly and accomodating. They have live music on the deck. Our...

Our server (Lori) was fantastic and the bartender (Lisa) knows how to make a Margarita!! We eat here often, especially when these ladies are working. The location (right on the beach) is perfect.

My company has had several corporate functions at Sandy Bottoms. Great food, incredible service and remarkable view! If you are looking to hold a corporate event or just having a nice family time out, I highly recommend Sandy Bottoms!

Seafood was frozen and very generic. Horrible service!!!!! Will not revisit. Will not allow small dog's on deck because a server got bit by a dog. Witnesses servers petting dogs on the beach.
