“Calamari Salad on the Water”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

The location is great with a view of the marina from every seat. The prices are a little high but the calamari salad is awesome! It comes with peanut sauce and the flavor is wonderful. We also had the Brett's sandwich and it was flavorful. The mahi mahi was didn't have great flavor but the shrimp on top of it was good. Service is good and atmosphere is good.

“Great View & Food - Bonus”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Our dear friends who moved to Amelia Island from Cary, NC introduced Brett's to us, on one of our first trips down to see their new place! On top of the oh so delicious food, the view is spectacular! Definitely a place we are sure to visit EVERY time we visit our friends!

“Great place for drinks on the water”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Love the location, right on the water. Staff has obviously been around for years. They can recommend places to see and things to do. Nice wine menu and if you drink cocktails, they really do a nice job. We chatted with other guests at the bar and a lot of them seem to be locals. Always a good sign. I heard it's a great place for lunch.. shrimp and salmon dishes are recommended. We only went there for drinks (twice). It's a beautiful place to watch the sunset over the river. Outdoor seating is available, though it was a bit windy when we were there. Service was excellent.

“Vandy trip”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food. We visited twice. Ask for James from Valdosta. Coast Guard veteran that stayed. Harbor side if you like boats.

“Very good seafood, great service.”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

We had a group of 10 with individual checks. They were very accommodating with our crowd. They did add 20% gratuity to the check - and stamped in red that tip was included. It made it nice and simple, and CLEAR for our group.
