Good Fresh Seafood

Enjoy their Pasta Skillets, always very fresh seafood in the skillets, but could use a bit more seasoning in them. Prime Rib is very good when available. Always had great service.

So much hype! Do not waste your time, money and appetite! I really wanted this to be as wonderful as some reviewers said but the reality is that this place has very mediocre food and terrible service. Do not bother! We waited 1 1/2 hrs. - other tables were served ahead of us and when the food arrived it was... More

Anna Maria Oyster Bar is where every knowing local resident goes for great seafood, low price, and outstanding service. They do have food other than seafood but that is their main thrust. Everything they serve as well-prepared fresh hot and delicious. My wife and I live not far from this restaurant and we go there at least four times a... More

I took my three sisters, my cousin and her husband to the Oyster Bar for a family dinner. We had an AMAZING meal and anot equally AMAZING server. If you like fresh Florida seafood, you owe it to yourself to eat at the Anna Maria Oyster Bar

This is a great place to eat and socialize.We went for lunch and got there just the right time to beat the crowd. The food is delicious and the price is very reasonable. Will go back when I to Ellenton Outlets,which is just down the road.

We met another couple for lunch at the Oyster Bar. The place is always full with hungry patrons. The food is prepared fresh. The presentation was pleasing to the eye and the amount was plentiful. My friend had the clam strip platter, her husband had the frog legs and my hubby had the BBQ ribs and my choice was the... More

Our second visit here in the past year. I had the fried shrimp - all you can eat and US, wild-caught - very good. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The cost for the shrimp was only $15.99 - a great deal. The original serving was more than enough. We got there at noon on a Sunday - got... More

Stopped by this restaurant on my way from Tampa to Pt. Charlotte. It was around 7:00 and there was no wait. Service was prompt and the food was prepared perfectly. I had the coconut shrimp that was great and the side of their homemade apricot horseradish sauce that made the shrimp even better. The prices are very reasonable for the... More

This is the second time we have eaten at AMOB. Both times they have been VERY busy and we've had to wait. Parking can be a huge issue. The hostess is not the most patient person if your group is waiting for more to arrive. The atmosphere is more like a diner, with paper towels hanging above each table, and... More
