Sit on the Brett porch, having your favorite drink with appetizers, and watching the sunset. To me, this is the very best way to enjoy Bretts. Although I've had lunch here, I have never had dinner. We enjoy smaller restaurants with more intimacy. However, that...More

Lots of options. Order with confidence that whatever you get will be delicious. Drinks were good and cold. When we had the seafood or roast beef or an app it all was good.

To Bretts, My family had the most memorable dinner at Brett's. It was delicious and perfect. My Dad has since passed away but Brett's came up frequently when he and I talked about past trips and great memories. Is there anyway you could send me a menu? Thank you for giving us such sweet memories. It won't allow me to leave my e-mail. ;-(

Allmenus has a menu
Will you be open on Thanksgiving Day? Will you feature a traditional T-giving dinner? Thanks, Bernie
