Great Grouper!

We dined here and enjoyed our meals. The fou of us enjoyed our meals, two grouper, one mahi mahi, and one had sea scallops. My husband chose the blackened grouper which had pronounced flouvor, almost sweet and very meaty. I had the sea scallops which were smaller than the large ones that I'm used... read more

Very interesting place for lunch. It's very popular, so expect a wait - although you can make the wait more pleasant with $1.50 drafts and a nice spot to sit in the sun. We were seated outside in a corner table which had limited views of the water and was kind of cramped. The food prices aren't nearly as inexpensive... More

This tiny restaurant was difficult to locate, but well worth the effort. The food was very good, the view was excellent, the staff were friendly and attentive. What more could you want?

Stopped to rest our rear ends from biking. Lovely day, a bit cool & windy. Stopped here last year for the same reason, still had the Grouper Fingers on the menu. $12.95 for 4 decent size pieces of fish, light, crisp breading, excellent french fries and great Cole slaw. Hubby and I split and had a Yingling beer, nice and... More

No trip to Anna Maria is complete without eating a meal at Rod & Reel - and usually we eat several meals there. The dinner is always good, no matter what I get. Very fresh seafood. The breakfast is to die for - love the seafood omelet! And if going for the food wasnt good enough - fantastic sunset views.

This restaurant is located at the end of a fishing pier with a great view of the Sunshine Bridge and Tampa Bay. Its quaint, family friendly and has the best serving staff. They're famous for their fresh fish entrees that you can have prepared grilled, blackened, sauteed in lemon butter, etc... If you can't decide, they have a great "sampler"... More

While driving around Anna Maria Island we stumbled on the Rod & Reel Pier for a late lunch. A small eatery with a wide selection of sea food sandwiches and plates. They have a small selection of wines and beer, but no mixed drinks. Nothing fancy but good food. Go for the grouper fingers. The birds on the pier are... More

Had a wonderful lunch. The view from the pier is excellent. We had the clam strips and blackened mahi mahi. Both were excellent. The draft beer is good and cold.

Just an amazing place to eat! Walk along the pier, admire the egrets and pelicans, and enjoy the fresh & tasty food! We were there for breakfast and service was fast and friendly.

It's not fancy but it's a great place to stop for a drink. $1.50 draft. Excellent grouper fingers and outstanding French fries. Friendly service. We sat outside to drink our beer and watched the fishermen. While sitting there we saw dolphins swim by. It was perfect
