We love the fish and chips here! No grease at the bottom of the basket or plate! Their breakfast is also great! My husband likes the seafood omelet, and I recommend the Spinach and feta cheese omelet! Local Florida flavor and a good place to take out of town guests! Our family from Ireland really enjoyed their lunch here! Great... More

Rod N Reel has always been a FAV on Anna Maria -- Cold beer - outstanding view and a really great grouper sandwich -- after the fire, we were hoping for better - and many new physical enhancements were added. Beer still very cold, lower bar turned around to improve the guest view - but - the food was somehow... More

Fresh catch of the day, with many choices on how you want it prepared, grilled fresh veggies, and a setting out in the bay with wildlife galore. What else can I say. I missed them while they were closed last winter, but so happy when they reopened.

We were in Anna Maria on vacation for 12 days and ate at the Rod & Reel Pier for 5 meals. It's THAT good! We ate there for breakfast 3 times, lunch twice, and dinner once. The seafood omelette, bacon/egg/cheese sandwich with home fries are amazing. The grilled mahi and grouper sandwiches are amazing for lunch. And for dinner the... More

First visited six years ago with my family. Back on business and decided to visit The island. Enjoyed a $1.50 tap and a Grouper Reuben. Sandwich is so good we have been making them at home for the last six years with any good and available flakey white fish.

Had a very nice lunch. Perfectly fresh fish prepared simply. Very friendly waitress from Romania. What more can you ask for. Pricing was reasonable, food was delicious. Cole slaw was excellent. Not too tart, not too tangy, not too sweet, cabbage had great texture. No wait at lunch. Maybe it was the overcast, slightly drizzly day. Either way, great lunch.... More

The food is basic Florida coast diner stuff but is always incredibly tasty. Dandy Grouper sandwich, yummy fries, fried clams, slaw, amazing fresh fish, icy cold beer... Nothing fancy here, just real good food made by real nice people in a super amazing location atop a small pier. Eat and watch the folks fishing just below you or just gaze... More

Good time watching wildlife and fisherman below. Food is great for a small kitchen. Rustic tables not fancy and great for kids and adults. There were a lot of flies that were unpleasant, give me a swatter and I'll handle it.....they need to work on that.

We tried The Rod and Reel on a Monday night in July. The wait was quite significant, about 45-60 minutes but we had a large party of 12 so we kind of expected that. Time passed quickly as we relaxed on the pier and enjoyed drinks watching the beautiful views surrounding us and the kids enjoyed the beach area. We... More

We ate here tonight, arrived around 8, just after a big storm that reduced the numbers waiting considerably so we got a table straight away. Great food, good value, 5 of us ate for $70 + tip, good old simple food!
