Went here for dinner one evening and were impressed enough to return for lunch later in week with some friends. BIg mistake! We arrived at 13:00 hrs when they seemed to be winding down. The grouper sandwiches and tacos were ok but the fries were stale and rancid and we left feeling ill afterwards. A big let down. How can... More

Obviously an off night with the staff. 2 of our group had their food served to them cold. When this was pointed out, no apology made and it was taken back and reheated in the microwave!!! When it was brought back, again no apology made. I would say the food was average. Much better at the Signs of the Mermaid.... More

Every year we have dinner a few times during our visit. We even ate lunch on outside patio as we had our dog with us. They are very accommodating.

What a heavenly spot across from the north pier on Anna Maria Island, FL. We slipped in for lunch, didn't know what to expect, and had a fabulous lunch for a reasonable cost. The cole slaw and bean and corn salad outstanding dressings and flavor. The fried oysters were perfect; the potato bacon soup very tasty; and the grouper sandwich... More

Had a very nice late lunch here during our stay on Anna Maria Island. My husband, father and I enjoyed delicious crab cake and grouper sandwiches. We tried to come for dinner the night before but were not able to get a reservation. Recommend reservations for dinner as it is small inside although there is outdoor dining as well. We... More
