Good choice....

If you're looking for atmosphere, this is the perfect place. We were a party of 7 and we all enjoyed good food and great service. I would recommend and return.

This was our first trip to Amelia Island and the cafe was recommended by the kind ladies at the Welcome Center. We squeezed in at 2:20pm as they close at 2:30pm to prepare for dinner. We asked to be seated on the outside deck over the water but, before we could order our meal, a storm blew in and we... More

This was probably our least favorite meal of our trip to Amelia Island. The food was average at best, the drinks were overpriced, and the waitress was borderline rude. The pier around the restaurant makes for a nice view but we wouldn't return. This was also our most expensive dinner and the one we enjoyed the least during our trip.

There are only two restaurants with views, here and Sandy Pelican (also reviewed). We came to Brett's for dinner on a Wednesday night. They have outside seating, but we sat inside at the windows with fabulous view of water and marina. Quick, really pleasant service. Had a delicious Reisling and a local beer, Duke's, from a Jacksonville brewery, both very... More

Great restaurant. Good food. Good view. The sunset was amazing. The dock beside it is a great place to take a picture.

Great food, great views, good service - what more can you request? Ok the muffins at lunch could be a refill item and available at dinner. They are so good I would pay for them. And I very rarely eat bread.

We were staying at one of the mega resorts farther south on the island, and made a point to head out to the historic district of Fernandina Beach a couple of times. When near the shore, we typcically like to find a place on the water with an extensive seafood menu. Brett's did not disappoint. I had the low country... More

Lovely village, great location near the marina. Good and friendly service. But the food was average at best. Too expensive for what you get. I can get a seafood meal this good or better in Tennessee.

Stopped for lunch as a single. Felt easily at home and treated no differently than a four top or two top. Had the Shrimp and Grits with Tasso gravy. It was easily the best I have had. Great mixture of shrimp, grits and tiny chopped vegetables in a spoonful covered with a great, smooth gravy that added to the taste... More
