Fantastic food with a great view!

We stopped in for a late lunch / early dinner. We were seated outside, across from the beautiful Anna Maria City Pier. The kale brussel sprout salad and orchard salad were delicious! The truffle Mac n cheese was great; best of the others that we tried on the island. The turkey Brie sandwich was... read more

This restaurant really does care if it's customers are happy with their experience and they go to great lengths to satisfy. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary here on Wednesday night and the food for the most part was excellent. My husband's steak was too salty but the management were quick to make things right. My frutti di mare was really... More

My husband and I dined at Waterfront twice in March 2015. Our reservations were made at 4:30pm. We were offered both the lunch and dinner menu to order from. The servers were very helpful. I loved the smoky margarita, not to sweet very ginger based. We also loved the raw Brussels sprout salad, unlike anything we have ever tasted. All... More

We dined at Waterfront Restaurant with dear friends on a cool evening in February, 2015. My spouse and I had not been here for a couple years and we were delighted we didn't have to wait to be seated. It is perfectly located at the north end of Anna Maria Island across from the pier. We had excellent food and... More

I have a friend who lives in the Bradenton area. Every time I visit, I insist we have lunch at The Waterfront. I always sit outside on the patio, even if I have to wait for a table. The service and the food are both fabulous. I have never had a bad meal and the service has always been top-notch.... More

We ate at the Waterfront twice last week on our Spring Break vacation, and though I've eaten here many times before and already reviewed the restaurant, I loved both my most recent meals so much that I had to write another review! Our first meal this time was a late lunch--one thing I love about Waterfront is that their lunch... More

We had a group of ten and reservations were tight, but we just showed up and were seated within twenty minutes an a fun, outside venue. We dined there for two evening meals and one lunch. Great food, excellent menu choices. Fun service, great wine list and excellent choices.

Had a wonderful dinner here recently. Server was a young gentleman who was very personable and did a very good job. Caesar salad was fresh and dressing was good. There was a bug crawling around in my salad so they brought me a new one...it was sooo teeny that they would have prob never been able to see it, probably... More

We had our one big family meal (2 families vacationing together) at the Waterfront. We had an early dinner reservation, 5 0'clock to accommodate the Little ones, so it was also possible to sit outside on the side patio. First of all, our server, Ashley, was outstanding. So patient and helpful. She could not have been any better. As for... More

Our dinner here was excellent. Grouper Oscar, pork with apricot glaze were wonderful. We sat inside this time. It's relatively quiet, very comfortable, but sit on the patio if you can. Even on a chilly day, it's a great spot. Prices are in line with the upscale food and setting.
