Since we last visited, Ocean Star has moved to the Galati Marina on Anna Maria Island. It is a major upscale of their facility, probably triple the size of their previous restaurant a couple of miles away in Holmes Beach. Beautiful setting overlooking the marina. Spacious and much more upscale than before. The food is actually upscaled too, and the... More

Here's the deal, whenever you're outside of a major city, you're somewhat skeptical about the quality of sushi. No need to be skeptical about Ocean Star at Galati Marina, its first rate. In addition to the food, the ambiance on the outdoor deck was delightful. That said, we had a large party and service was a bit slow. That said,... More

We visited the new ocean star Japanese restaurant in Anna Maria at Galati Marina. Really nice atmosphere and the food was excellent. Sushi and full dinners alike.

We visited the Anna Maria location yesterday for dinner. The food was uniformly aweful, sushi just okay. We waited 1 1/2 hours for bad food. While we were waiting the wait staff dumped cola down one of us. Begged for drink refills. Curry terrible. I hate to write this as we have enjoyed the Habachi before. McDonald's would be a... More

We ordered seven sushi rolls from the Anna Maria location at Galati marina. The sushi was fresh and really good. The price was fair too at $43. The Holmes Beach location is only open for breakfast and lunch while we were there. The Anna Maria at Galati marina location is very nice inside and you can sit outside too. Make... More

We had twice dinner at their new location at Galati Marina (902 South Bay Blvd on Ana Maria island). The food, sushi, tuna, was very good and the view is very nice. As observed by other reviewers, service can be a bit variable, but Monica did an excellent job.

Have recently been to their new location at galati marina. The place is beautiful, cozy seats and a great place to watch the sunset. They have a large variety of sushi and it is indeed delicious. They have a nice selection of wines too. Will be back!

Went to Ocean Star- the new one at Galati Marina- and had great food and great service. Only drawback is... The kids did not want to leave! There are a bunch of great yachts to look at! Great sushi, great hibachi!
