Possibly best meal ever!

The food was so delicious, we couldn't stop eating. We had stopped in for an early lunch, and made our way back for dinner, it was so good! The service was delightful, the atmosphere perfect. We are definitely huge fans now.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Waterfront, sitting in the early evening sun. The cocktails were great as was the food and service. Recommended!

After a number of trips to AMI, this was our first visit to the Waterfront. They had shrimp so my wife was game as she has never had bad shrimp in Anna Maria. I was hoping to go with the Grouper Oscar, but the portion of crab meat looked to be too much for my sensitive stomach. It is a... More

There are many choices for meals on AMI but you should do yourself the favor of trying this great place. If you are staying on AMI for any length of time, you will probably be back. You can enjoy some great Margaritas ( jalapeño or smoked are yummy) great fish tacos or even try a more exotic roasted red beets... More

This was my favorite restaurant on Anna Maria Island. The service was polite and friendly. The view was wonderful and the food was excellent. This was definitely the best food we had on the Island. I will definitely return on my next visit.

Had to book a table inside as bookings not taken for outside seating. Having previously sat outside to eat, I think you lose the atmosphere by sitting inside and wouldn't eat inside again. The food was good - had the specials fish which was excellent; other people in our party had the Grouper and the Steak, all of which were... More

From the minute we were greeted by the hostess, we felt like part of their family. Very friendly, yet professional. Our waitress was efficient, friendly and knew the menu extremely well. I had a jalepeno margarita. I would call it, spicy meets sweet. Loved it. My sweetie had his usual bourbon old fashion and said it was excellent. He got... More

The food was delicious, and they have great gluten free options! We sat on the side patio to avoid a long wait, and the atmosphere was delightful.
