Nothing extraordinary but not a bad lunch choice. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the chicken salad. The best part was the soup bowl of bisque we had as appetizer. You pay for the view, not necessarily the food.

Stopped by this location before a river cruise. Sat at the bar. The atmosphere was pretty but it was a much older crowd than expected. Our server was not very friendly and my one peach beverage was $12. Left a lot to be desired.

This restaurant was close to the jet ski rental so we tried it for lunch. Our service was ok, the BBQ appetizer was outstanding but all our entrees were ok at best. Just kind of dissointment for $15 per lunch entree . Great location at the marina. Views were great, the food just did not match.

Go for the Barbeque Shrimp and Grits!!! I ordered the scallops and pork belly which was good. My wife ordered the shrimp and grits and the taste I had was AWESOME! Eat outside with water views but sit where you are protected from the sun and wind.

Had lunch here with my husband. I got the buffalo shrimp salad. It was ok, shrimp was fried and lightly seasoned. My husband got one of their lunch specials; blackened shrimp salad, and really enjoyed it. Waitress was very nice and attentative. We sat on the patio and there were only 3 full tables. The food server mixed up 2... More

Just arrived in Amelia Island with our grandkids... Everyone was "hungry" so after checking into our hotel we drove to Fernandina Beach for dinner... Our youngest grand wanted to "eat on the water" so Brett's was the 'unanimous' choice... We stopped in the bar for a drink and view, Waiting until the restaurant opened at 5:30. The view was sooooo... More

I was with a large group. Service was petty good considering the size. We also had a wide range of food to try on our large table. I would say that nothing really stood out. Most items were a little over seasoned or over sauced. For being on the water, the seafood items were just okay. Overall, the food was... More

I never knew barbecued shrimp, collard greens and grits could taste so good. That must be how food tastes up in heaven! I don't even like grits and I nearly cleaned my plate. The collard greens were tender, sweet, and savory all at the same time! Never had anything like them in my world travels! Service was great and the... More

First time here and absolutely loved it. The view is just spectacular during sunset! I attached a picture of the sunset so check it out. We ate light, my wife and I ate big at lunch, so we just had house salads, but we did add the grits topped with shrimp, sun dried tomatoes, and fontina cheese as a starter,... More
