We've been coming to the Waterfront Restaurant for 6 or 7 years now. The food is always great and the view of the bay is very nice. They have a very good selection of whiskey, wine, and specialty cocktails. The grouper tacos are awesome!

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor my wife and I visited today. Words can not do the food justice well presented tasty, they just melted in the mouth. The ambience is perfect with Anna Maria Pier and Sunshine Skywards in the background, you could want for nothing more. Although we shared the starter and desert (maintenance of diets -... More

We had a very pleasant dinner here. The service was very good. The fried green tomatoes were good, but the sauce needed a little more zip. The fish tacos were a little over cooked. The shrimp and grits were good; but different than Charleston shrimp and grits. They have a very rich cramy Parmesan sauce and a grit cake rather... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at the Waterfront on our last day of vacation. We've been coming to the Longboat Key/Anna Maria area for many years, but this year we vowed to get out of our rut and eat at places we've never been to before. We used tripadvisor to make a list and we were never... More

Went last night, given the menus and we initially thought there were no prices. Gulp. Asked the waitress and she pointed them out - just numbers no $ symbol. Food and service was great. We sat inside.

Having been born and raised in a tourist orientated town filled with restaurants, I found this place to be a cut above. The food is local and delicious. The staff goes out of their way to make your experience with them fun and interesting. I had the the Pulled Pork Tacos that I just can't say enough about. Our server... More

We would have given this restaurant a rating of five if it wasn't for the lack of any choice of vegetables or potatoes. Mash, green peppers and sweet corn is not my choice with steak. The food was excellent but this lack of choice let it down. Services was very good. Great location and view although we sat inside.
