Difficult to find a problem with this place, I certainly can’t. Positioned on the northern tip of Anna Maria Island on the bay side, it has an abundance of wild life to view whilst dining. Not the prettiest of buildings more like a shack on...More

This has always been one of my favorite seafood destinations on Anna Maria Island. Arrived about 8pm. Parking was available ( sometimes a chore to find a parking place). Grabbed a cold drink at the bar, and waited on the pier for our table. Gorgeous...More

The wait was not too bad. Watching the fish and birds made the time pass. There were several intoxicated people also waiting for dinner. This was unnerving. The grouper was great however that's the only thing that was great.

Beautiful setting for lunch. You can wade or swim in the water right there. It's pretty cool and laid back

We always love to visit the Rod & Reel, especially for breakfast, while visiting Anna Maria Island. It's refreshing to come early, miss the traffic onto the island, and not have to wait for a table. My party all had generous helpings for breakfast, and...More

There isn't a lot of room in the bar area. You could take a beer right outside the bar and watch the Dolphins. The food is delicious and they're accommodating!

If you are eloping, it would be great. For anything bigger than that, no. It is a very rustic place, so IMO not a venue for a wedding party.
