We stopped in for a quick lunch. The sandwiches would have fed two people. They were huge. Concept is you pick the meat, the bread, the spread, and the toppings. Order at the counter and they deliver to your table.

Anna's has been open for over 40 years. Great deli sandwiches. The Surfer is their specialty - ham, turkey, Swiss and cucumber. Very fresh and moist. I'll be back to try something else!

Delicious food! Very reasonably priced and fresh. The sandwiches were amazing. I love the surfer and my husband loved the roast beef.

My father-in-law found this place on top places to eat in Sarasota. Well, they were right. The bread was so fresh you didn't even need teeth... I ordered the Surfer, turkey, ham, cheese, cucumbers... yep, I said cucumbers. Who would have ever thought cucumbers on a sandwich... It was WONDERFUL. Everything is made fresh daily, so when their out, their... More

My husband and I stopped in to pick up a quick bite before heading to the beach. They were fast and friendly. I only ate half because these are pretty big sandwiches. Their potato salad and pickles are awesome. We will be back.

Been going here since we lived on Siesta Key in the 90s. Nothing's changed. Still the large, tasty sandwiches all the other reviewers mentioned. Love the Surfer, of course. Everything is consistent at the University location and now the Bradenton location on 14th St which has more hot sandwiches and a Cuban. Love the potato salad, too. Close to a... More

Try the famous Surfer Sandwich, consisting of thinly sliced turkey, ham and cucumber and Anna's secret sauce on your choice of soft fresh bread with crunchy crust. I chose the marbled bread and it was so fantastic I had to return the next day and get it again. The pickle is cut into four quarters and big enough for two... More

We stopped at the UTC location based on a recommendation from relatives. I tried the roast beef sandwich and my wife went for the she crab soup and salad and our food was very good. We had leftovers and their staff were helpful in packaging them up.

Fast and friendly service. Quality food and very fresh bread from area bakery. Coleslaw delicious. Credit card ok. Steady line of customers but very efficient and usually food ready by the time you pay.
