Sisters with a vision

Jenna Ghilain, Briana Ghilain-Scanlan and Danni Lynn (Ghilain) Smith,  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!
