Great food and view!

Typically you sacrifice food quality when the view is great..But this has both. The tortellini seafood special was excellent!!! My husband loved the Grouper Oscar. Great service. Wish we saved room for dessert as the descriptions were mouth watering. We got there early and were glad- was an hour... read more

My favorite restaurant on Anna Maria Island is the Waterfront Restaurant. Here's why... Whoever's in the kitchen obviously cares about the customers. When you order a menu item, the kitchen staff gives you their best...with what they have to work with. The fish is not over cooked. It's cooked perfectly. The food is flavorful, with a gentle, pleasant balance of... More

Appetizers and meals were great. Our waitress was super nice and helpful with selecting our meals. Steamed clams were great and the shrimp was awesome. Highly recommend for a quality meal.

Can't say anything bad about our experience at the Waterfront Restaurant , since we've dined here several times in the past. The wait staff is sharp and attentive , the food is better than most restaurants on the island. Since my wife and I have dined both at the Waterfront Restaurant and Sign of the Mermaid an equal amount of... More

This medium sized restaurant has indoor and outdoor space. The location is lovely, and you can see the water easily. The diners at dinner dress a bit less casual than at lunch. Not a huge menu, with some elegantly presented specials every night. Everything they do is done well. My husband loved the grouper tacos and the Scottish salmon was... More

This restaurant was walking distance from our motel. I had one of their specialty drinks while waiting for our table. The drink was fabulous and refreshing made with vodka,cucumber and not sure what else. For dinner I had scallops and my dinner companion had shrimp. Both were delicious! Reasonable priced,casual dining. I will definitely go back. Great food and service!
