The restraunt has outdoor seating right on the sand if you prefer. Unfortunately when I went the weather was not cooperating. It did not diminish a good time had by all. The food was great, especially the stuffed mushrooms. The daily fish entree was excellent and we were served a meal we could not finish. I will be back.

We always come here for the pizza. Thin crust & cooked fresh. Last time we went by -- appeared they are remodeling or they have changed ownership. I hope not as I'm not sure where we will go for pizza now.

This is the place in the beach where you will see it all. Nice for a sunset cocktail. Live music and good beach food but nothing fancy. Typical beach bar in every way. The staff isn't as friendly as it once was and they tend to favor their local regulars so getting a drink at the bar is a bit... More

This is basically a casual bar on the beach sort of place. We love Fernandina Beach and usually stay either on or close to the beach. After a long walk or day at the beach we hit Sandy Bottoms. Staff are friendly and service good. Food is average to above depending on your choices. Happy hour bar prices are good... More

We stopped in one afternoon to quench our thirst after a walk on the beach. Susan the bartender was very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed our cocktails and a bowl of Gumbo. The Gumbo was excellent but it's the customer service that keeps us coming back!

Wife and I ate there 12-17-16; we were greeted by the very friendly bartender Susan who recommended the most delicious nachos we've ever had. The blackened grouper and chicken wrap were great too. Susan even came in from the outside bar to check on us twice! Great service and food in a laid back atmosphere ... too bad they are... More

We tried the chicken salad and lobster dip. Both were excellent! The beer was really cold too! Nothing fancy but right on the beach and the food has always been tasty!

We booked Sandy Bottoms for my sons rehearsal dinner on November 11, 2106. Russell was very accommodating for all of our needs. The food and service were good and we were very pleased at having the upstairs to ourselves. They even had an elevator for one of the brides elderly aunts to use.

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!

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.
