We like this AMI restaurant so much that we annually end our vacations with a dinner at the Waterfront ! One of the best spots on the island, the first thing you need to know is that a reservation is necessary if coming for dinner. Lunches can get crowded too and they do not take reservations for the porch area... More

Situated across from the beach, this is a lovely and lively restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. You can reserve the indoor but no outdoor. We have dined in both locations and have had a great experience both times. I recommend making an early reservation as you may have to wait if you take the 8p seating as we did.... More

Excellent restaurant with inside and out side seating. Located close to the water. Parking is limited but food and service is great. Try the grouper tacos for lunch.

We visited Waterfront for dinner while visiting AMI. We arrived around 5:30 to put our name in for a table and were seated on the outside patio within an hour. The wait time gave us an opportunity to walk to the end of the Anna Maria Pier and take in the sights on the pier. Our food was very good... More

We dropped in for lunch and had a very nice meal. The House Smoked Pacific Salmon was excellent for lunch - great fish, smoked perfectly and nice portion with a glass of wine. Everyone happy with food choices. I would also recommend dropping by for Happy Hour - good prices & good company.

Enjoy a great meal on the porch here, but don't be shocked by the price. While I don't mind the price, I would expect slightly better food for the sticker price. That's why I am giving them 4 stars.

Just after we arrived they were turning a lot of... More
