“I usually love it...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I usually love going here... this was my 5th time there, because I go here every time I go to Anna Maria. However, this time I wasn't as pleased. My fish was EXTREMELY greasy. When I broke a piece in half, oil literally dripped out continuously. You get SO many fries, but not enough of the actual entree. I asked for cocktail sauce instead of tarter, and it was frozen solid, so I had to wait for it to thaw, and then my fish was a lot colder.
We waited an extremely long time to get drinks/food ordered, didn't have silverware even after our food arrived, no napkins, etc. Had to wait for waitress to come back. She only came back once to refill drinks after our food arrived. It was busy, but we went at 9 pm, in order to avoid the huge rush.

“Loud”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

THe food and service were very good. THe "band" consisted of a man playing different instruments to prerecorded music and his wife played bongos, while their 2 young kids walked around, played and danced. It was extremely loud and annoying.

“Bad experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Having visited Island time on many occasions since it opened 3 years ago I was disappointed on our recent visit. Our party of 4 ordered drinks and dinner. when the food came the fries were lukewarm and we were inundated by flies which settled on our meals. We approached the manager who said it was a seasonal thing! Well I'm sorry but we've visited AMI for the past 25 years in the same 2 weeks and never had that problem or attitude. The family on the table next to us had their meals boxed up as soon as they were served, and took them home. I would suggest more/better fans and some kind of fly deterrent which I have in my own restaurant. on top of that we were charged for a beer we never had. We will be back again as we like some of the bands who play there but it will only be for drinks!
