We ate here twice during our week in Anna Maria. The crab cakes and lobster bisque were very good. Would have liked to see more locally caught seafood. Dolphin sightings are common. On our second visit my son and granddaughter spotted a manatee.

My husband and I dined here along with our two young children and another couple. All meals were delicious, reasonably priced and served in a timely manner; I had pasta, the other adults had seafood. Server was patient and polite. Certainly not a 'fancy' restaurant but great food and interesting experience. I wasn't impressed by the onion rings. Everything else... More

Good meal with limited menu. This place is all about the place. Eating on a pier with views of sunshine skyway bridge. Very little change from when i use to go here and drink beer after work in 1980.

My husband had steak and I had the fried shrimp. The coleslaw with mango and pineapple is a different twist on coleslaw. Enjoyed that very much. New potatoes for a side are always good.My second time there but my husbands first and he liked it too.

You can't get anymore on the water than this. Stopped in for a late lunch with friends. Greeted by a friendly staff and guitar strumming singer. Food was very good. My wife had the coconut shrimp and blackened grouper sandwich. I went w the fish and chips. All were excellent! All for $40. Highly recommend for the food and great... More

Unique setting with opportunity to sit out side or in in an I closed dining area with full length windows. We chose to sit out side. Had a wonderful view of Tampa Bay. The food was outstanding. I treated myself to the Mahi-mahi entree and hubby had a flounder basket and lobster bisque. All was cooked to perfection. The waitress... More

Went here because we heard alot of good things about it. Got there and the place is small and kind of dirty. Menu was ok but food is way overpriced. Do not order the hungry fisherman. It should be called a rough day fishing with the amount of food it comes with. 1 piece of fish 2 scallops and 3... More

We finally found what we were looking for- a fresh seafood place on the island that wasn't about glitz and glamour, it was about the food and relaxing atmosphere! We opted to sit outside and we were so glad we did. There was a live musician playing and it was a wonderful evening with a nice breeze. The food was... More

Wondered out to the pier to take in the scenery. Great gulf shrimp and cold beverages. The waitstaff was friendly and the atmosphere inviting. Definitely a great place for a casual meal.
