This is our favourite Sunday morning breakfast place. A nice walk up the old pier and if you can sit inside, a good view across the water to the Skyway Bridge and Egmont Key. Good honest food. Usually lots to see on the pier - fishermen, a manatee if you're lucky and plenty of pelicans and egrets looking for a... More

Two couples went for a late lunch on weekday at 1:30. We were seated promptly on the patio. Great view but very hot in the late afternoon sun. We asked to open the canvas shades to get some air. The server said she "had to check" and didn't return for 10 minutes. We finally opened them ourselves out of desperation.... More

My son and I ate here one stormy evening and we loved the authentic, tasty home cooked seafood and laid back charm. The blackened shrimp, yellow rice and fresh slaw were a superb combination that only the perfect Key Lime Pie could improve upon. Don't miss this delightful feature of island life.

We stopped here for a quick lunch, a short walk from our vacation rental. Good solid food, fresh french fries. Quick service despite it being full.

It was fun to walk out on the pier to eat above the water. The menu was good but nothing memorable. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The cook listened and our home fries were extra crispy and extra delicious.

So many restaurants. so little time. There are lots of places to choose from on Anna Maria. I'm no expert on them all, having only spent one long weekend there thus far. But the Rod & Reel was recommended to us as a good breakfast spot, and I would certainly agree. I see many "tourists" recommending it here, but it's... More

My favorite spot on Anna Maria Island. The view of the bay is incredible. A great local joint that welcomes us vacationers too! Whether it is the crab cake, pier burger, or grouper sandwich for lunch or the fried shrimp or grilled shrimp for dinner, great food all around!

We enjoyed a quick walk out on the pier on a beautiful afternoon. We found it neat to be able to see the back of Egmont Key Island across from Fort De Soto.
