Great stop for breakfast. I'm a repeat visitor having come here in '08 and '10. Good food. Good value for money and a view to die for. Well worth a visit when in AMI

Love the fresh fish dishes offered! The veggies are amazing and the dinners are always plentiful. The sunsets are nice and often you will be entertained by dolphins as well. The quality of the food and portion size is a value. For breakfast try the seafood omelette - oh my did I say seafood?! Unbelievable good; shock full of all... More

Located on the northern end of Anna Maria Island, this restaurant offers spectacular views and a very laid-back casual atmosphere. You can eat outside or if you choose to eat inside, several windows will give you a beautiful view as well. And be sure to order their locally made key lime pie!

It is located on the end of old historical pier on the beautiful north side of the Anna Maria Island. It has a quaint covered outside deck on the second floor of the house, which gives one a Old...

The food was nothing to brag on, but you can't beat the views!! They do not serve sweet tea (which is a bummer if you're from the South). But they do have beer and wine.

This was my second trip to the pier. We had lunch last year and loved it. You never know from one year to another if the place will stay the same...but they did. We came for dinner and the fish and chips is the best I have ever eaten. Will go again next year.
