Very Relaxing Place

We stopped here when family was in town and it was good. The atmosphere and service were great. The food is your usual local choices food. While it is good, there are better places, however, the views are nice because it is on the inter coastal.

We had lunch here during our first visit to the island. We had great food and good service. Our food was delivered promptly and the beer was nice and cold. The portions for lunch were very good sized. It is located right next to the fish house and bait shop so some might be bothered by the smell. We found... More

Not the best of surroundings and I wasn't filled with hope about the 'seat yourself' sign, but we lucked into a table and all good from there. Service was friendly, if a little slow, but the food was fantastic - a haven for seafood lovers. Not typical Anna Maria, but well worth a visit.

We took some guests to the Cortez Kitchen as we were looking for a casual place with fresh seafood. What a disappointment. We were seated immediately, although they were quite busy. Drinks were ordered and delivered promptly with the assurance a waitress would be right over to take our order. Almost thirty minutes later a waitress took our order, which... More

Quaint little seafood joint right in front of the dock where the fishing boat dock to unload their catch. I had the scallops dinner while my wife opted for the shrimp. Grilled to perfection and reasonably priced. Could watch the wide variety of pelicans soar and glide over the bay. Nothing fancy, dining under an open air roof, but enjoyable.

Of course you know Cortez is an industrial town and the industry is fishing, Know what to expect and the sights, sounds and smells are amazing. Cortez Kitchen was a very positive surprise. My wife had the grilled grouper and it was very fresh and tasty. I had the Buffalo Grouper and it was one of the best fish sandwiches... More

Located in historic fishing village of Cortez, FL. We started with coconut shrimp and shared a Steamer Pot. The broth was so good that I asked the server for a "to go" coffee cup to take the rest home to use in a dish I had planned for the evening. I asked her if they sold the broth. I would... More
