Great food and service in this local restaurant. Their Chardonnay Wine List is outstanding with many wines to choose from at very competitive prices. Definitely will be back again.

We have enjoyed dining at Horizons for years. The food has always been fresh and excellent. We are at the beach and expect fresh seafood. Horizons does not disappoint. Please do not expect deep fried. This seafood is much more elegantly prepared. My father prefers beef and he declared the medallions excellent. The waiter did an excellent job too.

This restaurant greatly exceeded my expectations! There were so many entrees that appealed to me and everyone in our party loved what they ordered. The appetizers were excellent, salads were fresh and the main dishes (rack of lamb, seafood cioppino, chicken piccata and salmon dish) were all amazing. We will be back. Great find and would definitely recommend!

Food great as always. Gumbo awesome. Groper prepared perfectly. Soufflé amazing. Wines are amazingly inexpensive. Hard to find a better on the island. Just a little hard to find, in the back of Berkshire/Hathaway.

Great food meets great friends. Just off First Coast Hwy, a restaurant with gourmet food that you are craving. A relaxed island atmosphere . One side with while linen table cloths and the other with booths and place mats. I met a charming and loving couple, The Hooves, so delightful and friendly. Chef Cortney ( and owner) is wonderful...so talented!! The food is good; cooked to order. Gluten free available upon request. The day I went, they launched a new menu.

Disappointed in quality of food that was not freshly prepared. How else can you explain a rack of lamb appearing 7 min. after ordering. The mashed potatoes tasted like they came out of box. Food was not hot either. Shan’t be going back.

Our local "go to" place for consistently great cuisine and friendly attentive service. Owner- chef Courtney is always on site, and the main engine for Horizon's success. We especially appreciate her care and attention to our special dietary needs (vegan).

I was vacationing in Ameilia Island and my friend and I went there for dinner based on a review I saw on-line. The grouper was outstanding authentic southern cooking. I had gone to another restaurant at Fernandina Beach that touted authentic southern cooking and it was high priced and disappointing. Horizons is moderately priced excellent food. The service was amazing very attentive. 10 out of 10!
