“Very good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We had a very good meal, service was good, the restaurant looked like it has been recently refurbished and we had a great table right at the front.
We have been here several times over the years and will be returning again!

“Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

My wife & I shared a romantic dinner on the patio. The waiter, Matt, was knowledgeable & polite without being over bearing. The food was incredible. I had the Grouper Oscar & my wife had a mixed seafood pasta. Ambiance & taste AAA+++.

“A reasonable experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We spent our last night of our trip to Florida here.

There was a wait for a table outside. We ordered a couple drinks at the bar which were reasonable.

When our table came we were directed to a table at the rear, near the car park of the adjacent property. We were too hungry to insist on a table at the front which we subsequently noted had some availability.

The food was very good but some of the dishes, especially those that were fried were far too salty. Also, the portions are massive, so take that into account when ordering.

The service was a little hit and miss with the attitude less friendly and more functional than some other experiences in Florida.

“Good as I had hoped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We had been meaning to stop here for some time. Finally stopped for lunch with the relatives that were visiting.
Two of us had the Grouper Tacos; they were very good; served with slaw.
One other had the Lobster Bisque which was very good; and another just had a salad.
Large imported beer selection on tap; but out of the one I wanted.
Service was good, except for the server dropping a knife in one of our laps while clearing the plates; staining his shirt and shorts.
All in all a good place to visit if on Anne Marie. Just beware of falling knives.

“Best crab cakes on the island! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We've stayed in Anna Maria a few times now and we always make sure we have at least one trip to the Waterfront during our stay. Amazing food, absolutely delicious. The crab cakes are the best I've ever eaten!
