I would have given them 5 stars, but the service stunk! Our waiter seemed to be flirting with the hostess, so he wasn't quick to check on us. Yes, the drinks were $16, but they were good! The food was excellent! I don't mind paying...some extra money, but with an automatic 20% tip, I would expect better service!More

Stopped in for a night cap. The drink was yummy - an old fashion. The Bartend’s were very accommodating and made suggestions for drinks. Wish we had time for a bite to eat. Definitely worth checking out if you’re in town!

We are on AMI for the month of April and have taken our adult children to The Office two times. Last week it was excellent as usual and our kids loved it! Different daughter and son in law last night and was shocked to see...a huge food menu! All sounded delicious…Lobster roll, Short rib bourguignon, Bistro Blue Soup, Lobstercargots. Also still snacks, bacon and a dessert! Next time we will do dinner! Check it out!!!More

What a delightful (and unexpected) spot to find in such a touristy spot. This artisan cocktail lounge is located in the former doctor's office on the Island and as a result, they are all in on the medical theme. We made a reservation online and...got a small table in a room showing vintage movies. Shortly after getting seated, our server arrived with the "shot of the day" to "inoculate" you for the evening. I cant remember exactly what it was as it must of had 20 ingredients but it was a fun way to get started. While the main feature of the place is clever and inventive drinks, they do offer some small plates (cheese, salami, shrimp) even though information about food is no where to be seen on their website. We really enjoyed the shrimp - ordered it twice, and the charcuterie was good too and it was enough food for dinner and to balance the strong drink. On a weeknight it wasn't too busy but I'm sure its a different story on the weekends. Definitely will be back on our next visit to AMI.More

We were looking for a cocktail place on the island and this place didn't disappoint. We did go on a weeknight so didn't need to worry about crowds and the service was very good as we were one of the few customers in there. We...enjoyed our original cocktails for sure!More

We were "walk ins" but got seated at the bar right away. Our bartender was friendly and informative. My wife had the Oath and I had the Smoky Old Fashioned. Both were excellent, We will return for some food as well as the alcohol. Recommended.

Ten visits here so far....not quite what is was in 2019 for obvious reasons but still a fun evening in spite of the reduced offering and smaller crowds (need to book now with Covid-driven social distancing). Cocktails are great and limited food offering also quality....We always enjoy coming here...Sean's places are high standards and take Covid precautions seriously. Can't wait for our next visitMore

I have been to The Doctor’s Office multiple times. I enjoy the warm ambience, great service and the fabulous craft cocktails. There are not many places on the island or anywhere nearby where you can find craft cocktails. They are always fun and interesting.The snacks...offered are creative and delicious.More

The Doctors Office is a cool concept. There are Covid precautions in place which is unusual for Florida but very much appreciated. The menu is fun and the drinks are great. We had the duck pate and the charcuterie board for 6 people it was...a nice size. The Pain Killer was the popular drink at the table. Tropical Rum drink. Service was disconnected. But pleasant. We would return for another appointment.More

The website is a hoot, so we decided to check out The Doctor's Office. Made our reservation long in advance. We were offered a table by ourselves or a place at the bar, but with Covid opted for the table. It was set with a...bag of chips and a water glass. A staff person immediately came over and placed "wellness shots" on the table...al nice little concoction with vodka and grapefruit. Nice touch! The drinks menu is amazing. Here is your chance to try Orgeat, Nux Alpina black walnut liquor, black walnut bitters! And because the place is an old doctor's office and the theme resonates everywhere from the skeleton in the corner to the cocktail names, we decided we needed healing with one of the specials of the day and a Preferred Remedy (that's where the black walnut comes in). The drinks were fabulous, and on a whim, we decided to also share a serving of the Duck Liver Pate. Wow! Double Wow! It was fabulous. The little glass of silky pate with a slight concord grape glaze was so good we had it again at the Beach Bistro, and came back for another helping a week later! The staff here are so accommodating and eager to please. It was delightful. If you are on Anna Maria, don't miss this special experience. It will definitely make you feel better!More

Yvonne greets you at the door and was so kind and enjoyable. We sat out in the garden, it is beautiful. They have string lights, a tree swing, tunes, and a cool sea breeze. The bartenders make great drinks. They are controlling the amount of...people inside, they're just trying to be safe, hope folks are kind and understanding, it is a great place w great staff. If you get worked up about masks or any type of guideline, just roll on by, they're doing their best. Call or make a reservation online to see what the current status is. Their sister restaurant, Beach Bistro, provided an excellent dinner overlooking the gulf last night, if that's your thing.More

The drinks, atmosphere and company were great. The pineapple martini was smooth and the best drink that we tasted that night. Highly recommend to treat yourself here when on the island.

Maybe the solution to the rudeness that many people seem to be experiencing is to order your drinks online, as we did. The drinks were really good, and the guy at the door was reasonably civil.

Door greeter was unfriendly. After an hour and 45 minutes, and $300.00, we were rudely asked to leave because there were others waiting. We are locals who used to enjoy bringing our many guests but we will not be back, and will discourage visitors from...going because of bad vibes.More
