Dinner for a group

We will be in town for a wedding on the weekend of Sept 30th and are looking for somewhere for the party to eat after the rehearsal. We are not having the traditional rehearsal dinner because we are taking a water cruise that evening. We are looking for somewhere close to the Ritz, preferably with an ocean-setting(either on the beach or with a view of the beach) and with a price range of about $10-$15 dollars. We would appreciate any suggestions you all may have. Thanks!

Assuming you are meaning entrees priced in the $10-$15 range; although that will be a challenge. check out the menus at the websites I have listed, but you will generally see entrees in the $15 - $25 range. Surf Resturant has an outside deck (about half covered other half open) with live music. The Surf is across the street from the ocean with a condo complex directly in front but there are some ocean view corridors from the deck and generally a nice ocean breeze. There is also an inside dining area, but no real view of the water. (www.thesurfonline.com)

Other option would be Slider's Restaurant which is finishing up their construction. They are oceanfront and have a large outside dining area, Tiki bar with live music as well as inside dining. Surf is probably 1 - 1.5 miles from Ritz and Sliders is 3 miles, both straight north on A1A (S. Fletcher) www.slidersseaside.com

A couple other options if you would be going directly from the restaurant to your water cruise (assuming you would be departing from the City Marina) would be Brett's which is located directly on the Amelia River with beautiful sunset views over the river and marsh (not ocean) www.brettswaterwaycafe.com. Sandy Bottoms is a more casual bar & grill (www.sandybottomsamelia.com) with an open and covered deck directly overlooking the ocean by Main Beach.

A major issue you might face is if the restaurant will take reserverations since you might be on a tight schedule between the conclusion of the rehearsal and the water cruise. I think most of these will depending on the size of your group but be sure to check.

Congratulations on the wedding and hope that you enjoy your visit to our piece of paradise. It would be extremely helpful to others to post your experience afterwards.
