This is a very popular place with locals, but I assume it is because of the price. The food is very unexceptional. The service is fast and the prices are reasonable, but I would never go back. My fish was overcooked as was the fish the others had at the table. Since it came so fast my guess would be... More

We arrived about 10 to 12 and the parking was at a premium. We almost left but decided to see how long the wait would be and we were able to be seated right away. It is quite large inside and there is also outside seating. The service was very good. Our server explained everything and never acted rushed even... More

We regularly route our travels across the State so we can stop for lunch or dinner at Anna Maria Oyster Bar. We belong to their e-mail club and got the Anniversary Gift Coupon for a Free Appetizer plus 2 glasses of Wine. We never expected them to bring out a Dozen, OMG... We were in Oyster Heaven. This place is... More

We have been here several times. I keep saying I'm going to try something else, but I always get the shrimp. They are cooked perfectly every time. My husband loves the fish and chips. We love to go on off hours when it's not crowded and eat on the patio. LOVE THIS PLACE! Portions just right for the price.

This place was right next to the hotel we stayed, the Super 8, and we came here based on my in-laws suggestion who kept raving about the food here. The food was okay, but not great. I got their crab cakes, which was not the best crab cakes I had, I didn't finish them. I also got a cup of... More

We were driving from Tampa to Sarasota and noticed that this restaurant had a lot of cars so we thought it must be good. It was delicious! It was crowded inside so we decided to eat outside on the patio with a view of the lake. It looked casual inside and the restaurant appeared to be a favorite of the... More

Being incredibly busy is the mark of a good place to eat, isn't it? We arrived about 4 pm and were seated right away. As we left, there was a long line of waiting diners so we must have timed it just right. Good food, good atmosphere. Would visit again next time we're in the area.

We had friends in the area take us here when we visited. The service was excellent and the food was good and priced reasonably. The Salmon BLT was one of the best meals I've had in quite some time. My husband had fish and chips made out of Mahi-Mahi and it was good also. They also have $3.50 margarita's that... More

We stopped off here on the way back to Ruskin after visiting the Ringling Museum. What a great surprise. We will definitely be back. We started off with a bowl of the seafood gumbo and it was the best we have ever had -- New Orleans included. It had just the right spices but if you wanted to turn it... More
