“Unhappy Server”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We had to wait to be seated and it was about 9pm. Our server did not like his job. He seemed very upset to have to explain items on the menu. Service was slow. Raw oysters came 10 minutes before the meal. Food was only ok!

“Not the same”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Last year i had the best Alfredo ever! Well a year later it was the nastiest stuff ever - chicken was tough (undercooked) last year had wide noodles not now and they were tough - and the sauce last year was so creamy and rich - well thats a memory too. It was too think even when i first got my order and there was nor enough for the noodles served. My husbands fish was tasteless and the breading fell off. Oh well memories long gone :(

“Superb Food and Ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

I looked at the list of restaurants on Trip Advisor, but I forgot my list on my desk in the office. As I drove down Cortex, I spied Anna Maria Oyster Bar. It was lunch time so I sat at the counter viewing the kitchen activities. I have a great waitress and had a conversation with one of the owners who was watching the whole show like a ship's captain. He knows what he is doing! Great food, quick service, and friendly people! What more can you want! I went back twice in a week! Hiogh marks!

“Seafood Central”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The Oyster is a great place to eat with friends and family. The food is well prepared, plentiful, and nicely presented. The service is excellent; wait staff is always pleasant and efficient. The atmosphere is casual, friendly, and busy. Prices are very reasonable. The all-you-can-eat fish fry is a favorite with my friends.

Expect to wait if you come at peak times; it's worth the wait.

“An inland jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I remember when this restaurant was on the city pier at Anna Maria. Haven't been there in years. They didn't disappoint. The food was great. I ordered the linguini with shrimp and scallops and anna maria island sauce. Very tasty.
No wonder they have weathered the economic ups and downs for years.
