“Best lobster bisque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

... but the restaurant was over priced even if the food was great.
Staff where excellent and a variety of inside and outside dining locations available.

“a lovely way to spend a sunday afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

This was our second visit and it was every bit a good as the first. The food was excellent and good size portions. we had the mussels and the scallops and both were great. The service was attentive but nor over baring. Had not booked so had to wait for a table outside but it was worth it.
Reasonably priced.

“A family favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We ate here twice during our recent visit to Anna Maria. It was our family's favorite. Great food, selection and service. Also, a nice location right across from the City Pier. A big added plus for us, it was the only place we found that took online reservations. We will definitely be back.

“Cool breeze, cool place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great place for a late lunch. Waitress provided small toys which kept the kids entertained while we reviewed the menu. Grouper sandwich special with a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc overlooking the ocean with a cooling breeze, followed by a stroll along the Anna Maria Pier watching the dolphins. A pleasant afternoon and a great memories.

“What happened?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

I'm a local... had lunch at the Waterfront. What happened? Food was awful, presentation lacking. Higher prices and lower food quality. Did the restaurant think we wouldn't notice?
