Brett's was on a list of suggested lunch spots provided by the concierge of the Ritz Carlton's Ameila Island resort. The atmosphere and service were friendly and designed for tourists. Our estimated wait for for a table on the deck was 30 minutes and they were were exactly right in their projection. The menu is mostly American comfort food with... More

One of my favorite place to eat on the island. Views of Amelia River are great, have seen dolphins while eating a crab - cake... I love the fried chicken salad, loaded with pecans and a nice house dressing. While you wait, enjoy their out door rocking chairs and watch boats go by

We've never been disappointed eating at Brett's. You can eat inside or many days out on the deck. It's right on the harbor. Our favorite is lunch. The evening menu is not the same but it's just as delicious, though more spendy. Children are always welcome.

Local spot with great views - I would rate a 5 for views. Food is ok, service decent but not what it used to be. A little pricey for level of service a food.

We got rocking chairs on the porch, ordered cocktails and enjoyed the live music as we watched teh sun set. It was the perfect view of the setting sun on the Marina with sailboats passing.

A great place for lunch and I am told the sunsets are even better. Sitting on the deck overlooking the waterway and the marshes is Greta relaxation and you get to watch Pelicans and other birds swoop around the marina. Lunch was good, seafood tacos were really good, served with an excellent salsa, very good chicken sandwich. The staff very... More

There are some things we instinctively like about a restaurant, and then there are some things we distinctively do NOT like about restaurants. Brett's is full of both. We live on the most special Island in the world, Amelia Island, for 35 years, so we know Brett's very well. They've hop-scotched all over Amelia and now have the primo location.... More

Best meal we had during our week on the island. Grouper with lobster sauce was perfect. BBQ shrimp and collard greens! Yum! Large portions.
