“decent food, good views and nice staff”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

As a family we disagreed over which place to eat on anna maria was best, this one gets my vote. Its honest, has no pretentions, a decent menu and I found the staff great..

Sandbar on the other side of the Island for the sunsets and beach setting, this one for better service and I reckon better food...

“Dinner near the water”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Reservations suggested. We had one, arrived a little early and was seated just fine. We met friends for dinner here. The waiter was helpful and charming - took very good care of us. The food was good, however my fish on the mixed seafood platter was cool. The spaghetti squash was EXCELLENT! One of our friend's meal (smoked salmon) seemed to have an odd odor and she was not exactly pleased with it and did not finish it. Other than that, the atmosphere is pleasant and we had a good evening.

“Great dinner”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had dinner here our first night on Anna Maria Island. It was just down the street from our resort. The food was good. We ordered the cheese plate, which had great choices, and we both ordered local fish -- mahi mahi and grouper. Both were delicious!

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Best meal we had by far. Great view of bridge. Walked out on city pier and saw 2 dolphins. Service was good. Although was not a full bar, the margaritas and bloody marys made with wine were excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by that. The shrimp and grits were to die for. Planning to go back before we leave as there were several foods we still wanted to try.

“Poor food, lacklustre service”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Service was slow and inattentive, 15 minutes to order and a long wait. Apps were fine but the mains were poorly prepared and lacking in flavor...fried shrimp was a special local item and was likely no better than Red Lobster fare. Fish tacos had little flavor. Overall was a disappointment, especially for the price.
