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.

“Beachside casual dining at it's finest”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

We have had lunch here twice this week. A great place to have a beer while watching the waves crash on the beach. Burgers and sandwiches comprise the bulk of the menu. Fried oysters are wonderful. The saute of lobster and scrimp far exceeded expectations. Nothing better than walking in off of the beach for a beer and lunch. Laid back feel.

“Sand under your feet”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

For my birthday, my family and I went to Sandy Bottoms for dinner. Since this place is located right on Fernandina Beach, I was wanting to be seated outside. Fortunately there was a table available that was outside and literally on the beach. They have deck seating and tables placed on the beach as well. This was the best seat in the house. Where else can you go wade in the water while you're waiting for your dinner to arrive?

Our waitress, Lauren, was very nice. She was attentive and friendly. She was helpful in explaining their specials, and her recommendations were spot on. My family said the oysters they had were the best they had ever eaten.

We went on a Tuesday night. I believe Wednesday-Friday (and maybe Saturday) they have live music, but just hearing the sound of the crashing waves was enough music to my ears.

“Good food and great view”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We stopped at this place at the "end of the road" on A1A on Amelia Island. It's a large restaurant with a stage that makes me think it's probably a happenin' place on weekends. However, we were there at 5:00 on a weekday, so we sat outside on the deck that couldn't be any closer to the edge of the ocean. We had a mahi sandwich and a grouper sandwich with well-seasoned black beans and rice. They were all very good. We especially liked the dill tarter sauce. We also ordered Frickles, which are fried dill pickles. They were some of the best we've had! We were bothered by flies, but that's to be expected when you choose to eat outside. It's a great ocean side, casual place to eat.

“Nice Spot”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

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!
