While imperative for navigating the sea, using a compass to directly locate food will result in a plate of silver dollars or a bowl of bionic hands. Send your taste buds in a different direction with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of surf 'n' turf and drinks at Sandy Bottoms in Fernandina Beach.
With its ocean-abutting locale and umbrella-shaded beach seating, Sandy Bottoms combines tempting surf 'n' turf with the relaxing backdrop of the Amelia Island seashore. The varied menu siren calls with starters such as quesadillas ($7–$12) and fried Krabby Bites ($8). The eatery’s arsenal of fishy dishes, including mahi-mahi ($14) and the hearty seafood platter with fish, shrimp, scallops, and oysters ($24), diverts mouth while ambidextrous toes construct miniature sand castles under beach-planted tables. With three bars assembling a wealth of beverages, guests can indulge in thirst-quenchers that complement each dish, from the Texican burger and its ensemble of chili, cheese, and jalapenos ($9.50) to a grilled-scallop po' boy ($11).
The sweet citrus flavors in a slice of key-lime pie ($4) blend comfortably with the casual oceanfront ambience and live entertainment from local musical acts on Sandy Bottoms’ patio. With plentiful indoor seating bordered by flat-screen TVs and large windows, patrons can savor the ocean scenery inside without hitchhiking grains of sand encroaching on their personal space.
