“A must do for us!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

We've been eating here for years! One of our favorite places to eat! The seafood is always fresh and the service is great. The restaurant is small but is always clean. The nutty grouper and the City Pier Combo are 2 of my favorites. The last time we were there a lot of people were ordering the steamer pots and they looked & smelled amazing! Definitely a must try for next time!

“Love the city pier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

We always make sure to visit the Anna Maria City Pier when we stay with family in Sarasota. Good food, good prices, and beautiful view!

“Great View, Great Food, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

We were planning on going somewhere else for dinner, but wound up at Anna Maria City Pier. We opted to eat at one of the couple outside tables between the restaurant and the bar. They had a guy playing guitar outside which was nice. The view was amazing- right at sunset. It was fun to sit, eat, and watch all the people fishing off the pier.

We ordered the buffalo popcorn shrimp and fishermans platter and a couple beers. The food was great, very impressed. Quite a few flies around which was annoying- but nothing they can do about that! Our waitress was a sweetheart, very attentive and quick. For all the seafood we got, felt like it was a good deal! Definitely would go back and have already recommended to someone else.

“Great place for an afternoon beer and music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We go there on the afternoons that Howie plays soft rock and Jimmy Buffett songs. Great for mellow music, casual beer, watching people catching fish, the pelicans and the occasional manatee!

“Good Food with a View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

We ate at the City Pier on our first night visiting AMI. We requested to sit outside and only waited about 10 minutes. While we waited my husband and I ordered a couple beers from the bar on the pier, they were $2 more than if we would've ordered from the restaurant, which I thought was odd. I ordered fish and chips, my husband ordered the buffalo shrimp and our little one had the shrimp as well. We enjoyed our food and it came out fairly quick. Next time we will wait to order drinks from the restaurant and try another seafood dish.
