We just left Sandy Bottoms and are more than a little annoyed that we wasted our last night in Amelia Island. The atmosphere inside is terrible - a little like a cafeteria with an ocean theme, so we decided to eat outside. The ocean view was great, but after a few minutes we were smoked out by the cigarette and... More

Husband and I arrived late as we were just getting to the hotel right next door. Decided to stop in for a drink and a quick bite to eat. We walked in, no one noticed us. Were told to seat ourselves. Eventually waitress came over. Said they were out of just about everything on the menu-should have known! Beers were... More

Leslie is an ace bartender. She knows what I want even before I do and it appears on the table like magic. Thank you, Leslie. You are the woman! Even when it is hot (really hot and humid) Leslie has a smile on her lips.

We enjoyed the outdoor seating, on the beach. There was no wait, even in July! The food was excellent and a great value. The service was friendly.

We stayed at the hotel right beside it and decided to eat here after all of us arrived. The food was delicious! Loved watching the locals line dance. Service was good despite our large group of 20.

Larger than your average wing, fried to a crispy finish, finally covered in what has to be a homemade sauce...better get the mild unless you want it REALLY hot! Nothing better than dipping them in the Homemade Blue Cheese or... More

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.
