We had a wonderful dinner! Enormous entrée salad, decent wine options, good children's menu options and according to my cousins wonderful crab cakes! We were told the final seating is at 9pm! Thought that was on the early side. But our waitress was excellent! Very attentive and gave great suggestions! I would definitely return next time I'm on Amelia Island!

Have been out with the girls many times to Brett's. First on a fairly slow weeknight - they declined to sit us next to a window because it was a four top and there was 2 in our party. There were other empty window seats and too cold to sit outside. When the four top came it was actually 3... More

My first review ever. Usually I am just a stalker here, but figured I would contribute. I felt compelled to share our experience. I took my three kids and one of their friends to eat here on our summer vacation. The place, location and staff are great. Awesome sunset views. The food - total disappointment. Basically it is typical tourist... More

We usually come to Brett's every year that we visit Fernandina. In the past it has been very good. There was a wonderful manager who would come by and talk with all of the patrons to make sure everything was good. This year we were there for dinner. Very unhappy. It took 45 minutes from the time we ordered til... More

We were apprehensive about this place. It was recommended to us by a concierge at the Ritz on Amelia. But then I checked online. Funny, almost all favorable reviews on Yelp, but nasty reviews on Urbanspoon. Tripadvisor was somewhere in the middle, but generally favorable. Well, we pressed on. And are glad we did. The greeters were efficient and friendly,... More

Being a yacht captain, I travel up and down the coast. I stopped in Fernandina Beach for the evening and as usual eat somewhere close to the marina. Brett's is right on the marina. Walking in, the hostess was great. But when we sat down the fun started. First the food. Gotta have the fried green tomatoes. They have a... More

Brett's has the perfect location for the potential of great seafood. My husband and I were very disappointed in our appetizer and meal. We ordered calamari for an appetizer and were shocked when it arrived looking onion rings. It's taste had no resemblance to squid. My husband had the salmon and I had shrimp scampi. Although portions was good, the... More

Probably the best view to be had in Fernandina Beach, or Amelia Island. On the end of a pier, looking over the Intracoastal and the harbor. Facing west, you get a great view of the sunset. This is not a white linen table cloth type of atmosphere, but you can get food that you would expect to find in that... More

Had an enjoyable lunch. Shrimp and Crab quiche was very good as was the apple sauce. Didn't care for the bleu cheese potato salad though. My wife had the shrimp salad sandwich which she enjoyed.

Wanted to bring our visiting family here after picking them up at the Jacksonville airport. I love the location of this restaurant on the water. The view is awesome and the food is always great.
