Great view

Enjoyed a great break from the tourist - filled streets of "old town" Fernandina...the food was excellent and the view of the river was superb. Very relaxing

My wife and I ate at this restaurant tonight and everything was wonderful. We watched the sun set over the harbor while we enjoyed the crab cake appetizer. We ordered the grilled salmon and grilled white fish (mahi). The meals were among the best we can recall ever eating. We will be back anytime we visit Fernandina Beach.

We stopped here for the view, which is a nice dockside view, and the food is good but not great. Decent service and an overpriced drink menu. Hold off for dinner, just do lunch.

Best view of the marina, water. Large restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Very nice place to dress and enjoy a delicious meal. We initially sat outdoors, but the gnats were in full force, so they graciously re-seated us indoors. View was still very nice. Some creative dishes and lots of seafood and steak options. The BBQ shrimp and collards... More

The shrimp bisque was exquisite. I'll have that every time. This place is right on the harbor so the atmosphere is wonderful.

The setting is unbeatable and the food is quite good. I have had consistently good meals every time I have dined here. You can sit outside on the deck and take in the harbor activity and have any sort of cocktail. Service is always prompt and pleasant. Many entrees have old south flair, and there are many seafood options. I... More

We loved the location right on the water with the boats bobbing in their slips. On a Saturday night we had about an hour wait but it was a busy event weekend on the island. Sangria was good. Service good. No one in our party of four had any complaints about our food but it was nothing remarkably memorable either.... More

Nice casual place to enjoy some food and drinks with friends. Nice view of the bay from almost any seat. Try it out and enjoy!

Had a late lunch at Brett's Waterway Cafe and it was an excellent dining experience in a casual environment overlooking Fernandina Harbor and Marina. This is a very popular dining facility and one should expect to wait for 15-20 minutes for service during certain times of the day, but the wait is definitely worth it. Once seated, the service provided... More

Some of the staff were less than welcoming, service was slow and we did not get what we ordered. The location is however great.
