While visiting the area, you would be remiss if you didn't take the time to visit this beachside restaurant. The outside bar with live music or the inside dining is the perfect start or finish to a beach day!

The newly renovated infrastructure of "The Sand Bar" (which I thought was the name of this restaurant) is quite nice. That being said, all three meals I have eaten here have been rather unimpressive. The food was either cold or it was soggy. The taste...More

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.

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.
