This is a really nice place, and it is sort of our "neighborhood" place. It is very busy on the weekends so make a reservation. The service has improved greatly, and the food is always very good. Plus the location in the marina can't be beat.

This newly renovated restaurant offers plenty of comfortable seating in a large open space which is blocked off only by high planter partition walls. The only complaint is that this open area let's the smoky habachi smells drift through the rest of the restaurant.... More

I am a big fan of the Ocean star Sushi place in Holmes beach, so I was excited when this one opened with the hibachi tables. It is at the marina and the location is beautiful. I have not tried that yet but the sushi,... More

Always great food and great service at Ocean Star. We like to sit at the sushi bar to watch them prepare the plates. The food is consistently good and service good as well. They do a nice take out as well.

This is a great spot for sushi on Anna Maria Island. News is that a second, waterfront location, is due to open shortly. Can't wait to try that out. But the original Island restaurant has a nice bar, some private booths in back, and tables and banquettes up front. I like to sit at the bar, and watch the sushi... More

We've eaten here for many years and come back regularly. The sushi is fresh and well done, the tempura is crisp and the cold sake is delightful. The servers are also friendly and attentive. The sashimi dinner I had last night was also quite artistic.

Ocean Star's sushi is better than some I've had in the top rated restaurants across the USA. The owner and sushi staff is A++ and always makes sure everything is perfect. A must try!
