“Excellent Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We had a lovely dinner at Brett's, tonight. It was for my husband's birthday. We sat on the porch and enjoyed the view. My husband's steak came out a little too well done. They immediately took it back, without fuss, and replaced it with a perfectly cooked one. I had the Carolina BBQ shrimp and grits with collards...delish!! Our server, Laree, was excellent! Would definitely return.

“Just ok ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We ate dinner here and loved the location and appetizers. We were not as impressed with our entrees and found them to be overpriced.

“Heard good things, but we'll never know for sure”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Apparently, you can't eat a late lunch there on a Saturday. We stopped in to eat at 4PM on a Saturday, lunch service was done at 2:30 (or thereabouts) and dinner didn't start until 5:30. We were offered a very skimpy bar menu, but opted to go accross the street to Marina Seafood Restaurant (where the food was quick, simple and easy).

“Very Accommodating for a large group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We recently ate at Bretts with a group of 26 people, and I felt that they handled the group extremely well. When you have a group of this size and the only complaints are that the servings were too large, it was a successful evening.
The shrimp and grits, as well as the other grits options were great. My step-father-in law ordered a country fried steak, and it was probably the largest I have ever seen. All of the fish dishes were excellent.
Will return next time I am at Amelia.

“Great location....terrible staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We stopped in one eve to have a drink & watch the Sun set as it's right on the water. Being fairly early, there were only 2 other couples at the large circular bar inside. We thought we may eat dinner there at the outside deck & asked the hostess for a table outside as we saw a couple empty. We were told it would be a 1/2 hr wait...?
When I mentioned there were empty tables we were finally told they were short on waitstaff & couldn't seat us (There were THREE girls at the hostess station giggling among themselves????)
We stayed for the Sun set & each had a mixed drink (once we got the attention of the disinterested bartender)
The bill was $16.00. Glad we didn't stay for dinner.
