“Simple and Fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

My friends and I watch sunset every evening and walk a block to Tortilla Bay Grill and share some dinner together. We take the dogs with us and sit outside on their cute picnic tables. I enjoy their fresh fish tacos and chips and salsa, my husband gets the big burrito or the sunshine bowl , a burrito without the bread. To finish it off they have a big tub of ice cold brews to choose from. What more can you ask for, but maybe seconds.

“Our favorite Island Place to Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Tortilla bay is hands down our favorite Island restaurant. We can't get enough of their food. It's always fresh, great tasting and good portion sizes. We have eaten there many times and really enjoy the banter with the friendly staff. We have eaten our way through most of the menu but my favorite remains the Steak taco's and the quesadilla's. Their queso is delicious, we often find ourselves craving it! Their salsa is homemade and the best we've ever had and they always give you plenty of warm chips to go with it. It's great value for money when you have a whole family to feed, and they are happy to make substitutions or leave things off for my picky kids. If you are visiting the island I would make this a must try!

“Fast-Food Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

We had the 'Beach Bum Burritos' and the 'Tasty Tacos' and for fast food it was good. We wanted to grab a quick meal after traveling to Anna Maria Island today and this hit the spot.

“Not at all as expected, rude cashier”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Maybe I expected more but to me this was just a fancy Taco Bell, expected to be able to have a meal and menu was all ala carte and expensive. We settled for some guacamole and it was good and seemed fresh, bottled beer was cold, cashier acted like he would rather be ANYWHERE else and could care less, young man who carried out our food was pleasant though.

We had the best Mexican food ever here. We came back 3 more time while on vacation. Such a superb variety of food and every bite was awsome. ♡
