I thought this was a basic greasy spoon with frozen food. I had the fish and chips, large portion of fresh fish nicely fried excellent. Wife had turkey club, actually thick sliced from fresh turkey breast. Looking at food on the tables I believe it may have been luck of the order. Staff I dealt with was friendly and great... More

If you look at the website for this restaurant, it appears to be a fun and friendly experience. Unfortunately, it's no more than a walk up food concession at the beach with a few more plastic chairs. The food is heavily fried and nothing special. The walk up ordering system was chaotic at best. But, more disappointing was the dirty... More

This was such a nice location to grab breakfast as the sun came up! My only complaint was that there were no highchairs. My daughter (2 year old) sat in a regular chair, which normally is okay, but she's allergic to dairy & kept trying to grab our food. Overall though, I can't really complain. The ladies at the window... More

Last Saturday, the 15th of November 2014, I challenged The staff of the Anna Maria Beach Cafe to do something way out of the ordinary for them. My brother passed away in later August and his wish was a BEACH PARTY. No funeral, no wake, a beach party and he even specified the menu. Tenderloin - Lobster (salad) - Shrimp... More

This is a must visit place when we are in Bradenton. We go there for breakfast as often as we can. The food is great and the staff are the greatest. You just can't find a better view in the morning or in the evenings. It is a great spot to have dinner and watch the sunset and enjoy the... More

The view and outside seating is one of the best on the beach. Good breakfast potatoes I think they cakes them home fried.....Very tasty. I went for the crankcase Benedict yesterday morning DON'T try those very overpriced 14.95 the crabcake was runny mush and very fishy tasting. Stick to the usual potato and eggs you'll be happy

The best part about this place is the laid back atmosphere and the view--it's right on the beach! The breakfast was just ok. Price was good.

Great food at a great price! You'll never leave this place unfulfilled! The smoked fish with capers appetizer is a meal in itself. I stop in for meals several times every trip to the Gulf Coast!

Well we were unsure the first time and again the second. Food was OK, service far short of friendly. Rather like our first visit.

This is a favourite of ours for breakfast. Lots of choice and the pancakes are fantastic. Located right on the beach - perfect. Can get busy at weekends but service is fast and you don't mind the queuing to order as the food is good. Excellent friendly staff. A good place to stop off. Friends recommend their lunch menu and...
