Description: 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.

Decent food @ a decent price for Amelia Island. Right on the beach so it's a relaxed atmosphere not fine dining. Has a nice bar & patio. Great for to-go also. All the staff we encountered were pleasant which is always a plus!

We only had drinks here one evening in their beautiful outdoor deck, watching the sun go down. You really will not find a better view, with the exception maybe of Slider's. My husband ordered one of those over-priced specialty drinks, but then switched to beer, saying the drink was watered-down. Service was slow...they could sell a lot more drinks if they had a few more servers, though it was very busy. Food coming out of the kitchen looked okay, though we didn't try it. They had a live band, which catered to the old crowd who was there. My husband marveled at the fact that we were the youngest people there...which definitely does not happen often.

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 cigar smokers on the deck. We moved as far away as we could, but there was no escaping it. We asked to have our meals brought to go. We should have checked our orders before we left. Several items were left out and our side orders were wrong. My shrimp scampi was fried, and my son's burger was grossly undercooked. The pizza was inedible & the crab cakes were terrible. The only positive thing was that the hush puppies were ok.

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 cold and cheap. Fried shrimp basket (about 6 shrimp) was ok. Ordered the fish taco which came out on a cold taco shell and the fish was not blackened. Don't bother with the food. Guess we should have stuck with the "bar"!

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.
