I have found the Anna Maria City Pier to be a favorite stop for a number of reasons. The food has always been good, especially the seafood chowder. Servings are very adequate and prices are quite reasonable. The Pier is a sort of landmark on the Island and goes back many years. Be prepared to wait for a table in March and April.
