“A family favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We ate here twice during our recent visit to Anna Maria. It was our family's favorite. Great food, selection and service. Also, a nice location right across from the City Pier. A big added plus for us, it was the only place we found that took online reservations. We will definitely be back.

“Cool breeze, cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great place for a late lunch. Waitress provided small toys which kept the kids entertained while we reviewed the menu. Grouper sandwich special with a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc overlooking the ocean with a cooling breeze, followed by a stroll along the Anna Maria Pier watching the dolphins. A pleasant afternoon and a great memories.

“What happened?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I'm a local... had lunch at the Waterfront. What happened? Food was awful, presentation lacking. Higher prices and lower food quality. Did the restaurant think we wouldn't notice?

“Farm salad and an ocean view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Outdoor seating across from the beach. Great service. Fresh bread and the freshest, most delicious salad= happiness! One small complaint- they serve kraft style mac and cheese on the kid's menu. Really? Seems like they could whip up a simple, tasty cheese sauce. Not a deal-breaker though. Love this place!

“Love Waterfront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The waterfront always has stellar service and food, the owner really has got a gem there. The view is also very nice, I absolutely think if you are on the island you should visit this restaurant.
