“Savor the Good...Endure the Bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Was looking forward to a nice steak dinner while on a family vacation to Omni Plantation Resort on Amelia Island and Brett's looked like it would fit the bill. We enjoyed the nice location and atmosphere while we had a drink at the bar...this gave us a good feeling from the start. And then we got seated. Our server was clearly in over her head as she couldn't really manage a "crowd" that filled maybe 4 out of the 6 tables she was serving. Appetizers came right out and were decent, but then we waited, and waited, and waited for our steaks. So we nibbled on what was left of our appetizer as our mostly-finished appetizer plates and platters sat in front of us seemingly forever (at least 1/2 hour) before being cleared. Then we waited some more. After a few piercing looks to the 'manager' by the kitchen door, our main dishes came out in a flurry. Nice steaks, perfectly cooked, tasted great. Then my water was empty for the first-half of my steak, and the wine that I ordered to be brought with my meal had still not arrived. I really didn't want that glass of Merlot with my steak anyway...[yes I did!]. After filling my son's glass of Sprite with water from a pitcher on her way by (my water glass remained empty), I asked the server for my wine. It came when I was 3/4 the way through my meal...yes, too late to enjoy. When we finally got the check I almost laughed out loud. Great steak (and you pay for it), good atmosphere, decent appetizers, horrible service.

“Nice views, good food except for the kids menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Enjoyed the beautiful views and an absolutely breathtaking sunset. The price range is more the $20-$30 range with a few meals under that price. The adult food was very good and the service was quick. They were kid friendly and sat us right away without reservations. My only complaint would be that the kids meals were not ideal. My daughter ordered pasta and she literally just got plain pasta with butter and cheese. There were no vegetables or fruit to go with it so completely lacked nutrition and my son ordered chicken nuggets and fries and McDonald's looked better than it. We had ventured off the Ritz Carlton property for a more affordable meal, but the difference was only about $30 and the children had beautiful, healthy food with grilled fish, mashed potatoes, and vegetables for only $3 more, so we will be sticking with the Ritz! I don't regret our meal and the adult dishes were wonderful and enjoyed walking around the historical region. We just wish the kids meals were more nutritious even if it cost a few more dollars.
