Excellent food and service

We stayed a month. My husband would go every other day for fish. It's the island best! Kathy is the best and always greets you will a smile. Fantastic food and service. Don't change the fish or shrimp. It's the best!!!!

Food and atmosphere was great. Coffee was top notch and free re-fills were a surprise! Music every night for the sunset and a Drum Circle on Friday nights. Anna Marie Island is a laid back, fun place to spend time. Hope to return in the future.

Have been several times over the last year. Very relaxed and informal, great food and service, enjoyable live entertainment, and fabulous location right on the beach. Great place to watch the sun go down. Conch fritters were really good!

Great place to grab a burger or sandwich or fish. They have an extensive menu, something for everybody. Outside eating lots of tables and chairs, order at the window and they bring the food to you. Right on the beach, so you could spend a whole day there enjoying the beach and not have to leave to get food or... More

Enjoyed eating at the Café, right on the beach - a shame it was raining - but didn't deter us from trying the food. I had a Chicago-style Hot Dog which was very good. Everyone else opted for the fish tacos, onion rings, fish sandwiches - which were all very good. Looking forward to a trip back.

We had dinner here with our kids and truly enjoyed everything. The food was great; the fresh market catch was especially wonderful! We enjoyed the live music, though it was disappointing that it ended so early. Would definitely recommend.

I came to this restaurant on Christmas because it was one of the only places open. It was super busy! We ended up sitting at the bar and having a margarita while eating some french fries and watching the people and ocean. I really liked it.

The view of the Gulf and the beach is great for those visiting the area, but nothng to write home about. The food is brought to your table and condiments are self serve. The attitude of the staff varies as some days are great others not so great. The beach rentals also are pricey as is the gift shop for... More

When one finds a restaurant boasting good qualities: friendly, clean, good food and welcoming waiters, the odds are, one will return. So we did, on a cloudy, cool and windy Friday night, taking relatives for a 51st surprise anniversary dinner. Gary, our waiter, was exceptional, clearly detailing the specials. Not only that, our singing waited presented an anniversay dessert, something... More
