Possibly the worst waitress ever encountered in florida, mis informed us over a menu item, when we questioned it at the end she got agitated, rude, rolled her eyes and stomped off, I don't pay tips for that kind of service and that aggravated her even more, seriously Jessie, consider a career change !! Food is also very mainly golden,... More

This is right on the pier and the seafood is great. Went back three times while we were there. Plus you can sit and watch the fishermen trying to catch some minnows.

Love the people and wild life watching. Never know what get's pulled out on the next fishing rod! Seen sting rays, manatees, Sharks, all kinds of fish and of course Dolphins ! If you have time, sit outside with a glass of ice tea or sangria and enjoy the live music! In the evening the lights, breeze and crash waves... More

As previously mentioned we have been visiting this area for over 16 year 2/3 times a year and always eat at the Pier once if not 2/3 times, it's just perfect - casual dining as it should be, great food, especially the Lobster bisque, it's exceptional, great ambience, good staff, lovely views and fishing to watch!

Great view of the bay and skyway bridge. I ordered the crab stuffed flounder with hollandise. DELICIOUS. Each family member ordered something different and said they each loved what they ordered. Again a beautiful place to have dinner and the sunsets are beautiful.

Enjoyed our lunch in the water! Food was so good! We had grouper sandwich and 25 Shrimp baskets. Great price, right on water (it's under you). Amazing view of Skyway bridge.

We met friends for both lunch and dinner. We throughly enjoyed our lunch on our first day on the Island, and decided to come back for dinner. The entertainment while we waited for our table for was good. The food was great and the drinks were ice cold.

After we have eaten ourselves around the world i think that 50% av all food is terrible 25% is ok and 25% is very good. Anna-Maria city pier falls in to the first category. It tasted terrible and is like so many other places only a tourist trap. Please dont go there..

My mother in law described this as the place where Spongebob Squarepants eats because it's a real authentic end of the pier restaurant Great food, lovely servers and very authentic with fishermen just outside and Pelicans watching the world go by You'll also see the odd dolphin

The best thing about this place is the view, especially if you visit at sunset. Relaxed terrace area with friendly bar staff where you can spot dolphins and other wildlife. Food was tasty but we were disappointed to be told that the only fresh fish was the Grouper but at least you can have this cooked a variety of ways... More
