Tasty

Son-in-law picked here for his choice for supper. Wasn't bad at all, and would eat here again. Pico de gallo was very good and salsa was too.

These are really nice people who are trying hard to make it in a competitive market. But they're not making Mexican food, and from what I can tell, there's no grill on site, either. I've tried several times over the years, but tortilla Bay's tacos and burritos, mainstays of Mexican 'cuisine,' have absolutely no flavor. There's a bit of meat,... More

Queso and salsa were good. Fish did not taste too fresh. The service was terrible and it seemed as if our large party was a burden rather than good business. Would not go back.

The queso is what makes this restaurant. I would eat here just for the queso. It is the best I've ever had. Food is above average besides that.

This is a fun lunch/dinner place on Anna Maria Island, Fl. My favorite items are the 3 soft tacos with chicken or pork and the taco salad. Yum! Everything is very fresh and tasty. You can eat inside or outside. The iced tea is really good, too. My husband enjoyed the huge burrito. Very friendly staff. Come in shorts or... More

I found Tortilla Bay at random by just driving around. Wow what a surprise. The food was so awesome and the amount of food per purchase was more than anyone on a budget would desire. It's a small place, but food is served quickly. Having dinned in places around the U.S. And other places I must say my fiancé and... More

The food is great. Very authentic! A very casual place, but don't miss it. We had the chicken enchiladas and they were delicious. Highly recommend.

Fast-food tex-mex. You order at the counter from the menu on the wall then your food is brought to you. Food was prepared quickly by friendly staff. Food was hot and very good. Restaurant was clean. Would recommend for quick, fast meal.

Stopped for lunch while waiting to get into our vacation rental. I had a chicken burrito and it was very good with rice, black beans and chicken. I ordered guacamole and sour cream also. Instead of shredded cheese inside it had con queso. It was very good and fast service. We also and chips and queso which was good.
