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...

The food her was just great! We were able to sit outside with our feet in the sand and watch the people on the beach. The fish was great along with everything that we ate with it. The service was good as well. We had a few drinks before our meal at the bar while we waited and they were... More

We stopped in here for breakfast on our way back home, after spending a week at Longboat Key. I have eaten breakfast here before and wanted to take my husband. The food is good, priced right. I will go back again.

Been here many times, it is a big, basic, busy place where you order at a window. The breakfast pancakes are awesome, and the lunch and diner choices are many. But the most recent time I was here I had an awful tummy upset about 2 hours afterwards, hence the heading of my review.
