A Must for Visitor to Anna Maria Island FL. Beautiful View, cool and comforting. They have lots of Home Made Specialties. Coconut Shrimp Salad was Excellent. Their own seafood salad with fruit and quesadillas were also excellent.

The view is beautiful but that is about it. Very pricey and small portions. Food is okay. My biggest complaint is the service. It is 5:00pm and yet I had to ask if I could also see the Early Bird Special menu which is good until 5:30pm. Waitress didn't seem to know what time it was or if the Early Bird Specials were still good. They were. After receiving my meal I noticed that everyone had a loft of bread. Couldn't seem to ever locate my waitress so asked another waiter to get our waitress. He was kind enough to say that he would go see where she was. Wish I had lucked out and had him as the server. A few minutes later our waitress showed up with our bread. Plan on seeing a sunset but spending a lot of $$$$.
