Diner Reviews
  • "Same outstanding food in a great new location. Horizons is one of our favorite restaurants. Its new location is much roomier and has great ambiance, although is a little hard to find. Take the time to locate it - it's worth it. I had the scallops and my wife had fish of the day - delicious. Fantastic lobster bisque to start too."

  • "A great dining experience. We started with BBQ Shrimp and Lobster Ravioli as appetizers. They were so good that I wish I could order each of them as a main course! Everything was prepared perfectly and the soufflé for dessert was out of this world. Can't wait to go back when I am back on the island."

  • "Horizons is the best restaurant in the Amelia/Fernandina area. I have eaten rack of lamb, grouper, flounder, filet & duck and that are all excellent... really excellent. They also have souffles so be sure to order one for after dinner. Sonny, (the Maitre D'), and Courtney, (the Chef), make everything run smoothly."

  • "This place has always been one of our favorites because the level of attention to the food and the service is beyond reproach. The seafood is one of the big reasons we go there. My wife had scallops and I had a "potato wrapped grouper"......In a lot of places the phrase "potato wrapped" could mean a splash of mashed spuds flung onto the plate but my grouper had a layer of potatoes that were sliced so thing that they" only had one side"...... Our salads were fresh and crisp with perfect dressings. In my opinion, the restaurant is too easy to drive past as it is tucked away off the main road. Missing this is a mistake because you'll have done without have a great experience."

  • "My daughter's flight was late getting in. They took us even though it was close to closing time. It was very loud when we went in, but those people left,thank goodness . I had the chippino not a classic preparation ,but delicious. My daughter had the fish special which was also very good."

  • "The owner, Courtney, is one of the few people still doing fried duck instead of just medallions. Her veggie ragout and spiced roasted cabbage made it even better. I had the potato encrusted grouper prepared to perfection. Toni was our server and did an excellent job. Adjacent to our seats was a private dining area hosting a large investment bank meeting. Some of the noise escaped but it was not distracting. We enjoy this new location for Horizons and wish them much success. My only suggestion would be to discuss the deep beat sound coming from the exercise studio next door filtering into our space that made my heart palpitate to the beat. Sounded like those cars who blast you at a red light."

  • "We live an hour & 1/2 from Horizons & drove up to celebrate our anniversary as we have dined here the past 3 years. Chef Courtney still has a wonderful menu, the horizons salad is delish, the lobster bisque & the lamb were very good. I wish she would put those fabulous sweet potato fries on the dinner menu, they are to die for!!! The new location has lost the quaintness & charm of the old one but we are ok with that, we go for the food. Only one disappointing thing regarding our dinner. We ordered the strawberry/chocolate chip soufflé for dessert which had neither a strawberry or a chic chip in it. We love a good soufflé but this was a hot mess of tasteless mush. Couldn't eat it, but it was on our bill anyway after our server took it back. "

  • "Perfect bread and house butter spread. My lobster ravioli appetizer was great. Recommended pinot noir glass was generous. Scallops were cooked just right. Well rounded and presented vegetables. Souffle dessert was a great find and outstanding. Friendly and attentive service. Pleasantly surprised on the whole. OpenTable longshot left my mood after dinner much uplifted from before."

  • "Once again, Courtney and her excellent staff provided an outstanding dining experience!! We've enjoyed the wonderful specials many times and on this visit, we asked if we could "switch-up" the Fish and were rewarded with the "Special of our Dreams"! We know what we like and Horizons is it!"

  • "When we go to Horizon's I always think of Cheers the TV Show, " it is the place where everyone knows your name". The food is always so good, I had shrimp and grits, yummy. Others at our table had pecan crusted Grouper and one had the Filet of Beef, all were very pleased. Relaxed, attractive environment, a great neighborhood restaurant!"

  • "Easter Sunday brunch was below par for this restaurant. Ham was undercook, so was some of the bacon...no sausage or chicken penne as advertised..prime rib was raw and dry, eggs Benedict was fine, ran out of some desserts and was replaced by better ones...no hot or even warm bread...people had to wait to long for resupply on buffet tables which were way too small. Service was fine. All in all, not a very good experience."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We went for Easter Brunch. IT was a buffet and a great selection of food, they even had lamb chops and beef tenderloin. Desserts were fantastic. the service was superior and the staff was very attentive to all customers. "

  • "Even in their new, Horizon is excellent! The Sonny and Courtney create wonderful dishes; unique, full of flavor and always, always great! It continues to be our favorite place to revisit!"

  • "We were pleased to see that Horizons has not lost its touch after its recent move. For our dinners, we enjoyed the grouper -- very moist, with a pecan sauce -- more than the tuna (which was the light pink variety). But both were accompanied by the same delicious veggies. Only regret was that we did not have room for Courtney's amazing coconut bombe cake for dessert."

  • "This neighborhood gem moved to a new location but is every bit as god as when in the old location. The ambiance is even better . The signature rack of lamb is superb"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Our table for five liked a lot about this restaurant, with one exception - the "Pecan Crusted Grouper with Mango Chutney" was a major disappointment. Not crusted with anything, just a few whole pecans with some type of sauce poured over a thin filet of sautéed fish that we were not even sure was grouper. The three remaining entrees were fine and several appetizer's determined top-notch."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We eat out often and have tried most of the restaurants in our area. I have to say that we had one of the best dinners we have had in a long time at this lovely restaurant. I had the flounder and my husband had salmon. Both entrees were cooked to perfection. The soufle that topped off the meal was superb. We have already made plans to return for another wonderful meal."

  • "We went here for our 10 year anniversary and had a fantastic meal. They were very prompt in seating us. They have a great menu with a varied selection of entrées. The seared duck ravioli with fresh mozzarella apptizer was divine! We chose the specials and were so glad we did; his was a veal & shrimp marsala & mine was a blackened sea bass with yellow tomatoes....I knows brief and limited description isn't coming close to telling you how incredibly amazing our meal was! The creme brûlée cheesecake for dessert was one of the best I've ever had. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Horizons new location is open, large AND inviting. This is becoming one of our top 3 restaurants in this area - Amelia Island, FL. We have eaten there 5 times since we moved here and every time the food was excellent - well prepared & presented, fresh & unique (not the run of the mill fare). We will continue to go back + lover getting 100 points on OT each time !"

  • "Horizons is one of our favorite places to dine. The restaurant have recently moved to a new location and we were a little apprehensive about that. But the new place has so many great qualities about it that I think the move was for the best. The food is always outstanding, the service personal, and everyone so friendly. The outside dining isn't ready yet, but will be so pleasant when it is finished in a few weeks. By all means, give Horizons a try and you will be a regular too!"

  • "I wanted to take my wife out for dinner to a location we have never been to before. Heard good things about Horizons and decided to give it a try. Food was great. The four course meal provided plenty to eat....and I eat a lot. Service was good. They could use a full bar as they only offer beer and wine. A simple liqueur selection would suffice."
