Fantastic location with competent service

My first stop when I visit the island, safe menu with adequate choice. Fantastic sea views. Spotless toilets and easy parking.

I asked before I ordered if the scallops were sea scallops or bay scallops and she assured me that they were sea scallops. They were quite large when I got my dinner but when I cut them in half to eat them...they were tiny little bay scallops with huge batter all around them!!! I was extremely disappointed to say the...

We came across this cafe while walking along the beach from Bradenton ( our first visit to Anna Maria) and were very pleasantly surprised. Location couldn't have been better, food was freshly cooked , served very quickly and was great quality. The prices were very reasonable - a hot dog , chicken salad sandwich , fries and 4 large drinks... More

Went there just for pancakes -- no pancakes!!!??? Apparently "the guy" who makes them couldn't make it to work... Was quite disappointed & so we're the kids. We ended up having plain waffles which were ok. Found it to be quite overpriced though. 3 plain waffles, an omelette & 1 glass of OJ was $40. One plain waffle is $7-8... More

Our vacation rental condo is located right next to the Manatee public beach in Holmes Beach. The AMI Beach Cafe is located right on the beach. We've found ourselves heading here every day to eat and relax with a drink. The fish tacos are wonderful and so is the Island Wrap with fish. Sides are hot and good. It's a... More

My family and I recently enjoyed a Friday evening at this delightful beach cafe. It is a simple setting on a magnificent beach on beautiful Anna Maria Island. We all ordered the Fish Fry for under $10.....by the way....all you can eat. The meals arrived quickly and perfectly cooked. Good food, good entertainment, beautiful sunset. Welcome to Paradise. Called tonight... More

This is my favorite beach cafe. Fun atmosphere. Great food. My fish was served a little late once but well worth it. "I was relaxing on the beach!" White sand! I have been going there for 5 years now. Nice little shop there also.

Food here is just okay. It is a reasonable price for a tourist place. All of the food was very salty. Especially the grilled chicken. Wait time for our lunch was 35 minutes which was a long time for our kids.

Morning pancakes are the best in the morning with sand in your toes and salty beach air in your hair. A great gathering spot that offers local music throughout the day. A great gathering spot.

We stopped in for brunch at the beach on a Wednesday and it was quite wait in line (30 minutes). I guess you would expect as much at the height of the season. I got the "all you can eat" pancakes with sausage and a side of blue berries. The menu said 0.49 more for blueberries but I must have... More
