“Place needs a bit of attention”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

Four of us went early for dinner. It was average to say the least. The service was slow even though the restaurant was not busy. In an area where restaurants are plentiful, extra effort should be made.

“Old Florida at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Only had breakfast here but have eaten here 10 times. For $6.00 you can get eggs, bacon and pancakes or something similar. Always consistently good. The home fries and hash browns are out of this world. Don't expect fancy. Their motto is "free beer tomorrow" and this little gem sits right on the Bradenton Beach pier with easy parking (except weekends). After you eat too much (!), you can always walk out on the pier and enjoy the pelicans and fisherman and view of the beautiful bay. What a treat !

“Try the French Toast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Walked in early in the morning. Were just going to have coffee and enjoy the view, but decided to try their French Toast. Won't describe it here, want everyone to check it out on their own and be as pleasantly surprised as we were

“Nice dinner on the water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

My wife and I finished kayaking around the pier and shore line and could see the restaurant from the water. After returning to our vehicle we drove to Rotten Ralph's for dinner. The waitress was very nice and eager to tell about the things to see on Anna Maria Island (our fourth island visit actually). We both enjoyed our meal and it was about what we expected from this type of establishment. I would return and have lunch as the view from the deck was wonderful, but better to see a full moon than a beach sunset. well trained staff, food was properly cooked and hot when delivered. Overall a pleasant surprise.

“A Pleasant Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

We tried Rotten Ralph's for breakfast. We found this place to be better than we thought given some of the reviews. My husband had the eggs (over light) and cooked just right. I had pancakes and requested blueberries. They were delicious and the blueberries were fresh. Our waitress was really nice as was the rest of the staff. And you can't beat the atmosphere
----right on the pier. The prices were reasonable too. I highly recommend this restaurant.
