Good food

Loyal to their Fish n Chips, Margaritas and Gator bites. This place has great service and great food. You can never go wrong with their fresh oysters. Delicious!

I visit this restaurant at least once a month when I'm down in Sun City. In all my visits I have NEVER had bad food or bad service. This is amazing when I think about it, as every restaurant will have their down periods. But not this place. The staff is always friendly and efficient. We have always been promptly... More

Always good food . The clam strips are tender and tasty. Coleslaw is very good. I love the Basa Roma. Tender baked Basa fish covered in tomatoes and capers. Comes with two sides. Yumm! prices are reasonable. Only drawback is that during the winter months there is always a waiting time, but seating in the bar area is first come... More

Other locations may be inconsistent, but not this one. Evan and Justin know my drink of choice before I even sit at the bar. The drinks and the food are served practically when ordered. As for the quality, it is above a lot of "hi-end" restaurants. The Thursday night special of Prime Rib is the best. It's not drenched in... More

What can you say? Most folks LOVE the place (try getting a table in high season), so they're doing something right. We, in fact, find ourselves every month or two. But it's hit-or-miss, as another reviewer commented -- anywhere between a "2" and a "4" depending on the night it seems. Our last visit, the Seared Tuna was excellent (fantastic... More

I love Anna Maria Oyster Bar. All of their locations are consistent. The fish and chips are my favorite. Also, their margarita are excellent. Everything I have ever ordered are very good plus a great value. Make sure you visit it is worth it!

I lived blocks from Anna Maria Oyster Bar. I've been there a number of times. Unfortunately the service and food are not consistent. I've had errors on my bill (overcharged several times). Really slow service. And food that was so salty it was inedible. But I've also had delicious food and great service. You just don't know what you're going... More

We stopped here on our way back from Marco Island because of all the positive recommendations from friends. Our server Valerie was awesome and it was amazing to see her handle several (more than 4) cranky old koots complaining about all sorts of things, except the food. We on the other hand loved our service, but were very disappointed in... More

Everyone will find something on their menu that they will like! I almost always have the oysters Rockefeller and they are fantastic and always very very large. The grouper is good and so are the crab legs. My husband really likes the Parmesan tilapia. One item my husband and I both agree that is one of the worst meals we... More
