I love this place ! The food is always consistently good. The hamburgers are seasoned and delicious as was the pulled pork BBQ sandwich for lunch. El Cubano for dinner was a plate of meat with added jerk sauce - yum ! Or try their fried chicken and waffle dinner which was out of this world. Wings are amazing with any sauce on them ! Macademia crusted grouper amazing ! Save room for their homemade key lime pie or peanut butter pie or coconut cake....need I say more??? It is small so get there early...nice place to watch the sun fall into the ocean at sunset if you get a table by the window. Or sit outside at their umbrella tables across from the beach. The decorations are fun and the place is clean and the new owners have definitely made this place a restaurant to not miss while in Bradenton Beach. While we were there from 3-6, drinks were half price! Servers are always friendly and quick.

First time visitors, came with local friends at their recommendation. Food was very good..I'm not a fish eater, so I had the macadamia nut chicken. It was absolutely delicious and a large portion I couldn't finish. My husband had the grilled grouper and thought it was the best he had during the trip. The key lime pie was a large portion, and couldn't finish it (made for a great breakfast the next morning!).

If you stay on Anna Maria, would definitely recommend Banana Cabana!

Been coming here for years but tonight discovered it's been under new management for about a year...all I can say is wow! Best macademia nut grouper sandwich on the island, by far. Shrimp appetizers (2 kinds) so tasty;also homemade chips and salsa. Sweet potato fries excellent. Don't miss this place.

We enjoyed our meal here. I had the Drum Pan Chicken and my husband had the ribs. Both meals were very good and the servings were very generous. We had enough for lunch the next day. The owners were very friendly.

Much of AMI food is curiously bland, so Banana Cabana stands out easily. Our table gave high marks to the crab cakes, gator swamp chili, and coconut shrimp. We came in mid-afternoon, had the place mostly to ourselves, and the bartender made us feel like regulars. Worth two visits or more.
