A lot of food for the price and you can't beat the view of the gulf on Anna Maria Island. Free refills on large ice tea! Kelley is very helpful and nice to ask questions to. Great place for a drink and to watch the sunset!

You can't beat the view!!! Simple good food and large portions. Service was quick. And they've managed to keep the seagulls at bay, although a few pigeons got through.

Had breakfast twice this week with my sons. Both times the food was very good. $5.99 gets you all you can eat pancakes and 3 sausage patties. 6.99 for 2 eggs, toast, bacon, and grits. Outdoor seating with a close view of the Gulf is a nice way to start the morning.

This place is pretty cool! Order your food from a window, sit and they bring it out. We had eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast which was very good. They have all you can eat pancakes but we didn't try them. Gift shop, bar and ice cream right there.

Went here for a quick breakfast on the beach. Order at the counter, collect your pancakes at the tiki bar and the rest of the order is brought out to you. All you can eat pancakes with sausage is $5.99. Great for kids! The food is homey and simple, in a good way. The kids can run on the beach... More

Good beachside location with awesome fish tacos. DO NOT expect anything from the Friday all I can eat fish fry though...the fries were soggy and the tartar is lame, fish wasn't the worst but the fish tacos were next level! Cool live tunes written Buffet/Marley crooner.

For beach fare, the food was very good. Seating is beachside - definitely great beach ambience. Hubby had the Philly cheesesteak, which was excellent, as was my BLT. Prices were reasonable.
