“Bring your fishing pole!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We went a little later on a Wednesday night and the atmosphere was perfect. It wasn't to crowded, the twilight brought lots of pelicans and seagulls to fish along with the fishermen on the pier. The food was delicious, and the service was fun! My only regret was that we didn't bring a pole to fish =).

“A must stop for lunch and a photo-op”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

This was actually our third visit to Rod & Pier. It is a fun place to have lunch on the water, look for sea creatures and take a few pictures. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We had the blackened grouper sandwiches and a pitcher of beer, just perfect for a beautiful Florida day! Also glad to see that the restrooms have been updated! Hope to return again next year!

“Best meal on Anna Maria Island”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

This is where the locals go. We had an amazingly good meal of Fried oysters and shrimp, and it was all good! Everything was delicious and fresh and we wished we had another day to go back and have another meal.

“Slice of Awesomeness!!!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

I cannot believe how awesome this was. So much we are going back before we leave. I had the Blackened Amberjack special. The slice offish was the biggest I may have received in a restaurant.The homeade tarter sauce is being stolen for a recipe at home!

My friends had a coconut encrusted Mahi. We had the clam chowder which was a thick version if you like it that way, but filled with goodness!

The view of the gulf was great as well. Met some locals at the bar located downstairs on thier pier and watched kids catch tilapia on the pier! If here - TRY IT!
