“Great diner”
Reviewed December 28, 2009

Went with a family group of seven...very friendly atmosphere, wide selection, large portions, "Jersey diner" cuisine at its best. We will go back for "cheap eats" in a warm and welcoming place.

“A place for a good solid meal at a great price...not fancy, but fantastic!”
Reviewed December 17, 2009

The minute you walk in the place, your greeted with a smile, and get the good diner kind of feel. It's a nice change from all the higher end stuff on the island. Want great food? They got it. Want great service? They got that too...and all for much less than other places! I would recommend to anybody, great for the kids too ;) As said in a previous review "a place for the rest of us", fits it perfectly.

“Good food, reasonable prices, homey feel”
Reviewed December 5, 2009

Read several good reviews for The Gathering Place, so we checked it out during our visit to Bradenton Beach. I ordered the baby back ribs (full rack) and my wife ordered the seafood combo. Both were $13.95 and included large portions. Mine included a cup of soup, a small salad, two sides, and a dinner roll.

My wife's seafood was good as well. The combo included a crab cake, a large filet of grouper, and four jumbo shrimp. She also got soup, two sides, and a roll. Shrimp and fish were excellent, and the crab cake was decent, but wasn't lump crab meat like we had hoped.

Overall, it was good food, and the service was friendly. This is likely a consistently good restaurant, but will not "WOW" you with much.

“Our favorite place to eat when on Anna Maria Island.”
Reviewed April 18, 2009

The owners are wonderful people. The menu always has Greek specialties that look wonderful. The food is like good home cooking, the portions are generous and the prices are very reasonable. We have visited the last two years and plan to go again this summer. Not the fanciest, so snobs please stay away and leave more tables open for the rest of us.
