Have always enjoyed an evening at unusual spot with very interesting stories & history. Have to vet the band ahead to make sure it's to your listening/dancing pleasure. The ribs were always great but not being served this year and their days of operation have been cut back (retirement coming?). Often a fun spot to spend at least part of... More

Have come to Anna Bananas for about a dozen years when they play classic Rock n Roll. Musicians are talented. Beer and glasses always cold and fries were excellent. Hope you're not in a hurry for the food, service a tad slow but friendly. Barry is always a gracious host, knows his customers well.

We were made to feel welcome. The owner, Barry, greeted us when we arrived and he shook all of our hands when we left. The food was... More

We attended Ana Bananas for the first time this week and we were met by the owner a retired RCMP ... Very friendly atmosphere and casual attitude that people on vacation like us thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back for sure and I should also mention the live music!!!

We had a great Sun lunch listening to the music there. We went to La Cruz Sun market and then had a pleasant meal and afternoon at Ana Banana. It is a good place to hang out and the staff make you feel welcome.
