Staff was excellent, efficient, friendly and cleaned up constantly, so the area is very clean. You are right on the beach! Great for families and food is good.

Affordable, great covered patio in view of beach and ocean. Pancake breakfasts, music, outdoor bar, lots going on for Friday evenings with music. There is a little gift shop for needs and souvenirs... and volley ball nets for those with lots of energy! There is a kids play area also. This is just a great public beach area. I am... More

My family and I ordered the "$5.99 all you can eat pancakes" everyday pricing special that comes with 3 sausage patties. I wasn't that impressed. The location was beautiful. You could sit outside or indoor. We chose to sit outside and the beach was a pretty sight. The pancakes were a decent deal, but we didn't go back for anymore... More

Here you can litterary sit with your feet in the sand while you eat. Servers are quite friendly, but it takes forever to get attention and then another eternity to get the food you ordered. On the extensive menu there are only two healthy choices. That is not enough in 2014, not even for a beach joint. Deep fried foods... More

This place has it all going for it. Great location, great food, lively people and entertainment. You order at a window and friendly people bring you your food when it is ready. The variety of food offered is wonderful and it is delicious. the bamboo tiki hut beach bar is great too. Friendly people and a nice variety of drinks.

Wife and I visited again this spring, first visit was 15 years ago....nothing can beat this beach and beach café, the bamboo tiki bar attached is a bonus for a cool beer or a chilled glass of wine... Staff are polite and friendly, service is A1, and the food is served with plenty on your plate. Breakfast is good, lunch... More

We have been coming to Anna Maria Island Beach twice a year for a few years but had never tried the cafe, as we had a regular place on the way on a fishing pier, which has since changed hands. We decided to try the cafe on the beach and were pleasantly surprised that the food was better than our... More

All you can eat pancakes - the serving is 3 big pancakes and 3 sausage patties - and you can go back for more pancakes. You order at the window and choose from family seating or smaller tables. You get a number to put up on the table so they can find you when they bring your food. They have... More
