Pretty good

Called here for lunch one day. Waited for about half an hour for table, entertained by thunder storm. It didn't look much at first impressions. Waitress was straight to the point but accommodated all our needs. Delighted when food arrived, even kids commented on flavour. Very good value for money... read more

You can sit inside or outside. We choose outside. Beautiful view of the blue water. People also fish on this pier. Friendly staff and great service! We had the grouper sandwich, it was wonderful!

Based on reviews and recommendations, we drove out to Anna Mara Island from Siesta Key where we were vacationing, to have dinner. I have to say the view is great and we even got to see dolphins swimming by! The menu has a good number of offerings so i was excited to try the food. While it wasn't bad, i... More

This is a fun place to eat just because of its location t the end of a pier. However the food was average and overpriced... $16.50 for a lunch grouper sandwich. I had mine blackened and it was very salty. The staff was friendly. We got there betweencp crowds so service was pretty quick.

The Rod and Reel serves delicious seafood that is definitely fresh. You can see plenty of people fishing from the pier as you walk to the end of it, where the restaurant is located. Don't feel the need to get all dressed up. It's very humble and not fancy. The wait staff is friendly and helpful and the meals are... More

Terrific! A fun quaint local place on a nice little pier. We stumbled by this and decided to try it. We enjoyed the bar and restaurant so much we went several times. Food is excellent and staff are very friendly. It gets busy andyou need to be there early or plan to wait. It is well worth it! Will go... More

The food was very good and the server knew about everything on the menu. The server was very helpful and the service was excellent and quick. If you are going to dinner here, arrive early around 4:30. The restaurant is small and will get packed quickly.

We dined early afternoon while out exploring. The view from upstairs was fabulous, with the whole of the Bay spread out from side to side. The "special" was fried grouper, and we all had some. Delicious! While getting out to the end of the pier to the restaurant, be aware of the folks casting off the sides of the walkway.... More

Every trip to Anna Maria requires a visit to The Rod and Reel, for only One reason, their seafood omelet. It is packed with lots of shrimp, crab, and scallops. That being said, in all my travels and all the restaurants that I have eaten in, I have never run across a conglomeration of ruder employees. Busers, rude. Waitstaff, rude.... More
