We ate at the Starfish Cafe twice during our six day stay on Anna Maria Island. We went for lunch on Monday and went back for dinner on Tuesday. This is one of those hidden gems. It is located on the water in Cortez - just across the bridge from Bradenton Beach. There is outdoor picnic table dining only but they have umbrellas to provide shade. It is great fun watching the pelicans and other birds while you are waiting for your food. Food is ordered at the window and is brought out in a box. Both times we did not have to wait long for our food. The food is excellent. It is fresh and prepared well. We had the seafood salad sandwich, oyster po boy, fried scallops and crabcake. All were excellent and the prices are extremely reasonable.
