Brett's has a good location at the end of Center St. The view of the bay is great. The food is good, however; not the best that can be found in the downtown area. The price point doesn't match for the quality and quantity of your choice meal. This is a more casual menu sampling and could be considered as... More

Lovely environment, great service with inspired food! The grouper on bed of lobster ravioli rocked. Crab cakes and shrimp n grits were a hit. We'll go back for more!

We ate dinner here, being seated inside in a huge room where 2 large parties were going on. The waitresses were really kept busy, but we enjoyed the view while we waited for our food. Food was good, nice portions. Would return again.

Where we choose to eat is determined, first of all, by whether or not our dog can be with us. Brett's is good with our canine friends on the patio......water bowl, etc. We all had tasty mixed drinks and good seafood, and the service was excellent. Definitely will return during our two-month winter visit!

Great view of the intercostal waterway. We went for lunch and the food was good and the service was excellent. The birds on the dock where a little aggressive, but they added to the ambiance.

We wandered into Brett's early afternoon for a drink and were pleasantly surprised. While there were very few people in the restaurant, the bartender was very friendly and recommended the pulled pork on chips which was phenomenal! We were just going to order chips and salsa but this was by far so much better. There was a great view of... More

Atmosphere was great, food was plentiful and good. Price was a little on the high side but probably worth it for the atmosphere and scenery. Give it a try and see for yourself if you want to return.
