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.

Close to beach--nice view

This was more like a large sports bar--lots of tv's around and a stage for live music. We ordered the blackened mahi mahi which was ok but lacked the flavor one would expect from blackened fish. The service was quick--prices were reasonable and wait staff was friendly.

The BEST thing about this restaurant is that it is located on the beach. We spent the day on the beach, and was able to sit on their patio in our swim suits with shirts, and get a cool drink and light lunch. The seafood bites were excellent. Their peel N eat shrimp was not the best I have had.... More

We eat here regularly when we are in Fernandina Beach. This is the best choice for beachside eating in Fernandina. It is right on the beach. The menu has something for everyone. They seem to have added a lot of grilled or smoked items recently. I had the fried shrimp which were excellent. My mother in law had the Brisket...... More

Great place to eat on the beach. Good menu that has something for everyone. Even the pizza is great! The music is always good, lots of local groups perform regularly. The night we went they had line dancing lessons!

We ate a very light lunch while spending the day at the beach. It's a seat-yourself establishment and it took a while for us to be recognized and waited on. We were noticed eventually and the service was good overall. We had to ask for utensils but they were brought promptly. I ordered a small pecan mango salad and my... More

We arrived today and were able to get a seat immediately as it was not crowded. It took about ten minutes to get menues and drink orders. We ordered fried pickles as an appetizer. They came out quickly and were pretty good. We then placed our food orders and this is where things went downhill. While we were ordering, my... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The atmosphere was fun and the staff and patrons were friendly. We chose to dine indoors because it was so hot out. We ordered the combo appetizer that had the bites, mushrooms, and peel and eat shrimp. The bites were really good as were the mushrooms. The shrimp were just shrimp. =) We... More

I shared the garlic butter shrimp with a friend and it was delicious. The Sandy Bottom bites were our app and they were yummy. But what makes this place is sitting on the literal beach with your toes in the sand and seeing the ocean. It's gorgeous and a fun atmosphere. We were there for lunch around 2pm so not... More

We had to go inside to eat- no outdoor seating available . Service was not great, waiting 15 mn to order food. We had shrimp tacos and shrimp poboy. The food was good better than expected, the black bean salad was tasty.
