Great food. A great atmosphere. Views of the beach. Does this sound appealing to you? Because it certainly sounds appealing to me!
And this is exactly what you get at Sliders Seaside Grill. Sliders Seaside Grill is a restaurant my family first discovered around five years ago when we first started traveling to Amelia Island in Florida a lot. We’ve loved every hotel we’ve stayed at in Amelia Island, but there is one we like in particular. And that hotel is Amelia Hotel at the Beach. You can see why we like this hotel so much in our list of reasons you should stay at Amelia Hotel at the Beach.
So the first time we stayed there was when we first tried Sliders Seaside Grill. It made a lot of sense to try the restaurant, namely because it is right across the street from the hotel.
So we tried it.
And we are sure glad we did! So glad in fact that now every time we visit Amelia Island, we make it a point to visit Sliders Seaside Grill.
So what is it about Sliders Seaside Grill that makes us keep coming back? Well, a big reason is the location. It is right on the beach.
They have a lot of seating outside.
Depending on your seat, you can literally see the ocean and the waves from your seat. You really can’t beat a view like that. And even when you are not looking at the ocean, you can breathe in that wonderful ocean air.
Sliders also has seating inside. This is good depending on the weather or if there is a game you want to watch since there are multiple televisions inside. It is also has a wonderful beach atmosphere.
I do prefer to eat outside, though, but be warned you might have a bit of a wait if you eat outside.
Of course, waiting here is one of the best places you can possibly wait. You get a buzzer that goes off when your table is ready. And then you can literally go walk on the beach. How great is that?
Now, if you have kids, you might be concerned that they’ll get bored while you wait. But here’s another reason my family loves Sliders. They actually have a play area kids can enjoy while you wait!
It is even close to tables so let’s say after your meal you want to sit and enjoy talking to other adults and enjoying a good drink. Then your kids can play while you relax with a drink!
So the kids’ playing area is a reason why Sliders is one of the most kid-friendly restaurants in Amelia Island. But is is also one of the most pet-friendly restaurants in Amelia Island. You can have your dog with you as long as they are on a leash.
This fits the great, laid-back atmosphere this restaurant (which is fitting for a beach restaurant). Another great addition to the restaurant’s atmosphere is that they’ll have live music. The musicians there when we were there played great music. It really added to our own enjoyment of the evening.
Food & Drinks
So I’ve talked a lot about the atmosphere, which is, in my opinion, the restaurant’s best selling point. But what about the food?
Well, luckily, the food is great. I love having seafood at the beach, so I like getting seafood here. The best seafood dish here in my opinion is the shrimp.
It’s some of the best shrimp I’ve ever had. You’ll really like it. It even comes in a cute plate shaped like a fish which is fitting for a restaurant right by the ocean!
I would say the seafood dish though I like the least would have to be the oysters. The oysters were fine, but nothing special. So if you are in the mood for seafood I would recommend getting the shrimp over the oysters.
If you are not in the mood for seafood, don’t worry. They have plenty of great non-seafood dishes, too. For example, we love the salads they have here, like the goat cheese and pecan salad.
They also have great drinks. We liked the Sauvignon Blanc by Oyster Bay.
So the food and drinks are also great.
Sliders Seaside Grill is a great restaurant to go to if you are visiting Amelia Island, especially if you are staying at Amelia Hotel at the Beach. It has a great location right on the beach. There are ocean views outside and TVs inside to watch games. There’s live music and a play area for kids. It is pet-friendly. And the food and drinks are great, too. So if you are lucky enough to be traveling to Fernandina Beach, Florida, you should check out this great restaurant!
