“Great location with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This place has it all going for it. Great location, great food, lively people and entertainment. You order at a window and friendly people bring you your food when it is ready. The variety of food offered is wonderful and it is delicious. the bamboo tiki hut beach bar is great too. Friendly people and a nice variety of drinks.

“Who could ask for more.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Wife and I visited again this spring, first visit was 15 years ago....nothing can beat this beach and beach café, the bamboo tiki bar attached is a bonus for a cool beer or a chilled glass of wine...
Staff are polite and friendly, service is A1, and the food is served with plenty on your plate. Breakfast is good, lunch pick from the vast menu, dinner sit and watch the sun go down .
Large car park is free, and a shop next door for the beach bits you forgot.
Don't just take my word for it come and try Island life your self, looking forward to our next visit from over the pond.......

If I go somewhere on the Island to eat and watch the sunset, it's always here. It's always great food, THE BEST VIEW, friendly staff and nice prices. Love it here.

“Terrific open air breakfast and lunch on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We have been coming to Anna Maria Island Beach twice a year for a few years but had never tried the cafe, as we had a regular place on the way on a fishing pier, which has since changed hands. We decided to try the cafe on the beach and were pleasantly surprised that the food was better than our usual digs, the service was polite, and quick, especially if you had cash to avoid the line with people using credit or debit cards.

We also noticed that certain times of the day did get more crowded, and we just worked around that and never had to wait for more than a couple people in line in front of us.

Several of the staff were nice enough to stop and talk to us (particularly Kathy), and make us feel like welcome customers.

We will definitely be back over and over!
