The service was great, good music (Wed and Fri nights), food good, not gourmet, but what you would expect from a beach bar and grill..would definitely go back!

This place was within walking distance from our hotel, and we wanted fresh seafood. We had the grilled shrimp and fresh catch platter (which happened to be red grouper). We split it and it was plenty for both of us. Service was great, too. The fish and shrimp were delicious, but the hush puppies were only okay. I would go... More

Wonderful beachside restaurant. The meals for the three of us were delicious. I did notice the ic makers sitting idle. As a lover of wine slushes, I recommend during the slower winter months trying to create a wine slushee to offer to your guests, to utilize the ic makers during the winter months.

I am reviewing for a private party we had upstairs in the restaurant. The food was set up buffet style. The prime rib was very good, the rest of the food was average. The staff and service were excellent. There was several staff on hand to make sure that everyone was eating and had a fresh drink. It was very... More

Great place to eat indoors or out. They offer a good variety of food choices. Our group found something everyone liked. We had the misfortune of being there on a windy (very windy) day and had too move inside. The place is right on the ocean.

Late lunch in this older Fernandina Beach bar hangout - right on the beach. Great setting - outdoor bar. Typical menu. Fish tacos were fine - needed a little boost / sort of bland. Cold beer - pleasant service. Great lunch place while coming off the beach in wet suits. Nothing fabulous but hit the spot.

Had a quick dinner here and sat outside. Very pleasant location and good menu. Good food, nothing over the top. Reasonable prices and good service.

Right on the beach, which is nice. Atmosphere is better down the road at Sliders, but food gets an advantage here.

Ate dinner at the bar, very friendly bartender and great red grouper sandwiches. Seems like a local spot, everyone knows each other but are very friendly to visitors . Also cold beers and good cocktails for reasonable prices.

Always here for the FLA/GA game in Jacksonville, FL for the last 4 years (2012). This is a quiet/older aged town (I'm only 39 years young). But the food/service is hands down fantastic. Seafood is not frozen, beer is always cold, and again.... service at the outside bar is spot on. This coming from a man that travels the entire... More

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.
