Tim Seyda

Tim is originally from Minnesota but recently chose the island life. His first step into the industry was at a high-end French restaurant, Les Quatre Amis followed by opening a 5 diamond regional American restaurant for Amfac Hotel Company. Since then, he's made his mark in Amelia Island working for The Ritz Carlton & Amelia Island Plantation. When he's not at work, you can find him on his bike, in the gym or at the beach surfing and fishing. His daughter, Karly and dog, Brodie take up the rest of his free time. Now, his passion has created Bar Zin, and he is thrilled to share his dream with all of you.


chef nathan

We are thrilled that Chef Nathan recently joined our team. He is a local from Amelia Island with a passion for creative plates and customer satisfaction. Nathan has been in the industry since his high school days and brings a flare to the Bar Zin kitchen unlike anything we have seen before. When he's not dedicating time in the kitchen, he's spending any free time available with his newborn son. 


Christina shannon

Christina is originally from Long Island, New York but we are so thankful that she made her way to the Island in 2002. She's been with us since day one when Tim gave her a shot at the General Manager position. Her knowledge of the industry has assisted Bar Zin in countless ways. When she's not at the restaurant, she spends the majority of her time with her two daughters, Brie & Kylie or helping run her family painting business.
