We go here primarily for the atmosphere. Lunches are limited to the usual fare but quite good for all that. The only objection I have is the waitresses are clearly under orders to get you out as soon as possible. We felt under constant pressure. Don't put your cutlery down or you will find it whisked away.

This was a nice quiet stop off season. The seafood omelette was the best. They had some new benches out on the pier which were great after breakfast. The service was great, it had the feel of an old time diner. The staff was great, note, that there are stairs to climb to the restaurant.

Another Anna Maria must-do!! Great place to have a drink on the pier and watch dolphins, talking to the fishermen and just enjoy a great view for awhile!

The Rod & Reel is a great experience while visiting AMI. We have enjoyed many breakfasts and a few lunches here. My favorite is their breakfast omlettes with your choice of ingredients. The inside is small but clean and the service is usually pretty quick. The view is just amazing !

The title says it all. My wife and I had lunch there and were underwhelmed by the food and service. but the view is great. My wife ordered a small salad, baked potato, and grilled vegetables. She got, and we were charged for, a large salad. They were out of baked potatoes. Her vegetables were forgotten, thus brought to the... More

I love dining at the Rod and Reel Pier. The view can't be beat! We stopped for breakfast in late November 2016 and had a tasty omelette with tomato and bacon. I also had cheddar grits and a divine biscuit. The waitstaff is friendly and the dining area is very clean.

you get an authentic sea food experience here. it definitely isn't posh, but that's what it's about and the fish is so fresh and cheap, compared with other places on the island. the beer and wine are also cheap so be sure to go at least once if you are staying on AMI

Excellent dinner! We sat outside at sunset and had wonderful dining experience. My husband had the coconut almond Mahi special and it was to die for! He said it's the best fish he's ever eaten. I got the crab cake dinner. You get 2 and they are enormous! They were very good as well. We also got onion rings for... More

We live in the area and this is one of our favorite places. For many years we would only tell a select few about this restaurant but after many magazine articles and favorable reviews the secret is out. Normally, I have the fresh catch: amberjack, swordfish, or wahoo, but last Saturday night I just had a Caesar salad and grilled... More
