Waterfront is by far my favorite place, and I think the wife finally fell in step with me. The bar is a blast while you wait, the menu is brave, adventurous, and everything super delicious, you really cannot go wrong with anything. Great location, nearby is the best ice cream on the island and the best t-shirt shop. Don't miss... More

I had the best crab cakes I have ever eaten at this restaurant! The champagne and wine were excellent too! You should also try the key lime pie, if you have room. I can't wait to go back to this restaurant! It is pricey, but well worth it!!

Stopped here for lunch. The menu had a lot of options and many of the items could be made gluten free which our daughter appreciated. I had a chicken sandwich special. It was served on a ciabatta roll with melted cheese and mango salsa with a choice of fries, salad or pasta. It was excellent. My daughter had fish tacos... More

This place is a must on everyone's list of restaurants on Annamaria Island. The food was great. Seafood and beef were stupendous. Great view of the water. Great staff.

Last evening we continued our annual tour of Anna Maria Island restaurants. The Waterfront is becoming one of our favorites. Last evening's red snapper special was just what my wife wanted and she reports that it was excellent. I had the crab cakes and they were excellent, prepared as those I've had in Maryland. Started with an excellent cheese board... More

What a great place. Had lunch on the terrace. The food was great, the service was great, and the prices are reasonable. They have a great selection of wine and beer.

We ate dinner here, just a five minute walk from where we were staying on Anna Maria Island. I'm sure it must be a contender for the best on the island (couldn't resist the movie reference!). It was busy but not full at 7.30pm and mostly empty by 8.45pm; the atmosphere is very casual and the feel of the place... More

We ( 6 adults & 2 children ) ate here last week and it was all we had heard it would be. Quick and attentive service from the minute we stepped in the door. The food was fresh and tasted great. Obvious the menu was composed by a local to showcase all the island has to offer. Worth a visit!

I have celebrated my birthday with my boyfriend for the past two years at this restaurant. He is vegan and it is extremely difficult to find a restaurant that he will feel comfortable eating in. Each year he has cleaned his plate.He loves the grains as a side, I would love to have that recipe to make it for him,... More
