Beautiful Sunset and a Meal That Fits the Setting

Sitting by the window at sunset, you might think the food is an afterthought, but it is far better than that. While I found the shrimp bisque a little light on shrimp flavour, the main courses were simply excellent. My wife had the scallops and they were some of the best she has ever had... read more

The view and atmosphere were very nice. The food was great but it was all a la carte so it was a very high priced dinner for our family of four.

Fantastic dining experience! We stopped in for dinner on a Friday night and although they were busy we had no trouble finding a place at the bar to wait. Only 20 minutes and we were seated. Great seating inside and outside. We had a beautiful water view at sunset. The staff is extremely attentive and pleasant. Food service was quick... More

Stopped here after taking the Cumberland Island cruise. This is a great location downtown Fernandina Beach with a fabulous view of the Inter-coastal Waterway. It was lunch time when we went and had to wait 20 minutes for a table, but the bar kept us well occupied until a table opened up. The service was excellent and the food we... More

Brett's is at the City Marina on the ICW in Historic Downtown Fernandina Beach, FL. You can enjoy your meal either inside or outside on the covered deck. Our favorite meal time is either for lunch or early in the evening and before the sun set and look for the green flash. The inside bar is very friendly and they... More

Been going to Brett's for probably 20 yrs and I've never been disappointed once. You will be amazed at the view, at the service, and at the food. By all means, don't miss this one.

Has a great view of the water and boats. Good for families, a variety of food to choose from. One of the few water front restaurants in the Island.

It's the second time I have used Brett's for a business luncheon while in the area. Parking seems to have become a problem since my last visit, but that is a sign of success, so I don't complain. Solidly executed seafood and low-country fare, attentive but not obtrusive service and a pleasant view make for a very good dining experience.

We went to Brett's for supper and give it high marks. Service excellent and the food great. I had shrimp and grits, which there were more grits served with it and less sauce. Hubby had the chicken Cordon Bleu which was also yummy. Would definitely go back.
