Sisters with a vision

Jenna Ghilain and Briana Ghilain-Scanlan, South Padre Island Texas  natives, opened Nautico Island Grill on January 26th 2023. With an influence from their past family owned restaurant, Amberjack's Bayside Bar & Grill, the sisters wanted to take the nineties Caribbean style and recreate the  ambiance with a modern twist. Featuring seven local artists and new clean crisp look, Nautico evolved into what the sisters like to call a fun, modern, tropical vibe. The menu is comprised of fresh salads, sandwiches, amazing burgers, seafood, pastas and classic Tex-Mex. Nautico's features are dynamic; from the famous and nostalgic menu items you found on the old Amberjack's menu to the classic cheese enchilada plate.  Nautico prides itself in offering choices - fresh green salads and nine homemade dressings to choose from. A yummy signature basil limeade frozen mocktail or cocktail to delight on the new deck. Nautico's mission is to impress from the moment you walk in the door!
