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.

Dinner on the beach.

The great thing about this restaurant, is the fact you literally can eat on the beach if you choose. Indoor, patio, and beach seating. The food is great.

I hit the outdoor patio on a weekday during happy hour. Strong $2.50 well drinks served by very friendly waitstaff (even those that aren't your server). The view and the breeze can't be beat. My grouper and mango bean salad (tasty) were small portions for the price but the happy hour drinks more than made up for it.

Food was good, not great but we really enjoyed the location and atmosphere. Two adults and two preteens. Right on the beach and convenient if staying at Seaside Amelia Inn.

$2.00 domestic drafts for Happy Hour, great tasting fresh seafood, and most importantly great service. Beach view and sandy toes only perfected the experience!

As a party of four, we ate here for lunch. The menu had a nice variety from seafood to pizza. One friend ordered a shrimp and rice dish, which she said was excellent. Two others ordered a pizza, half plain cheese and half with toppings. Although the pizza was very good, it came out with the toppings on the whole... More

Sandy Bottoms is great! You can actually get a table on the beach. We had excellent service from Bartender Leslie. She is very knowledgeable about the food and is very friendly and helpful.

Great food good value. Music can be a little loud. The seafood is very fresh. Try the local shrimp, they are GREAT. Dinner on the porch overlooking the beach is a nice touch.

So we made it back and it was a good afternoon to eat on the beach. Location can't be beat. I think management is taking their unique location seriously. We had garlic scallops, blackened grouper, prime rib, and a mango mahi mahi the grouper was very good, fresh. The scallops were a good portion about 10 but flavor was average... More

This is a unique restaurant because it was on the beach and had live music. The drinks were cold and the waitress was very attentive to our needs. I would definitely again and again.

The food is average to less than average. Lots of fried choices, not much healthy. It's a bar more than a restaurant so drink up and eat elsewhere.
