Skinny's is a must stop on the island. Look at the pics, what you see is what you get. Burgers & Fries are pretty good, the beer is cold, the prices are fair, but what you go for is 'the ambiance". Gotta go with the sand & the outside picnic tables everytime!

You could easily walk past this rather humble looking shack, but please don't if, like us, you love your burgers. My wife had the standard cheeseburger and I had the double. We particularly liked the fact that lettuce, tomato, etc are put on the side and not assembled by the chef. Both came up slightly pink centred which was how... More

A local gentleman who lives on the island recommended Skinny's, A really nice burger in a great setting with a relaxed environment, located 1 minute from the beach.

This place has incredible local vibe. Hands down the most casual place on the island. Order at the bar, sit inside or out on picnic tables. Cash only (they do have an ATM on premises). Awesome burgers and great people watching. Just across the street from the beach.

This place, which you have to look for, is next to Manatee County public beach, and is a family affair with a long history and a tiny menu, a few tables and a few stools. It's a bit too loud most of the time, but it's also open air, so who cares? The burgers are small and delicious, the onion... More

My kids were told that this was "the place" to go when on Ana Maria Island so... we went. Honestly, we were all a bit disappointed. But just because we were, you may not be. We were hungry and in a hurry. If that is the case then this is not your place. If you want a leisurely meal in... More
