“Great place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We went to eat here on the advice of the front desk staff at our hotel. Boy were we glad we did. We were able to walk to the restaurant from our hotel which was wonderful. The food was delicious and there was a nice variety to choose from. The staff was very friendly and knew the menu well. The staff also engaged in conversation with and when we told them it was our first visit to Anna Maria Island, they willing gave us ideas and suggestions on what to do and great breakfast locations. This place is a must when on the island.

“Good place to eat on AMI”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

My husband and I went here for dinner. He order oysters on the half-shell and I had the small stromboli. He enjoyed the oysters and I really liked my stromboli. We sat outside and watched the cars go by. Too bad the view wasn't of the beach behind the restaurant.

I would suggest people eat here, but try the seafood.

“Surprise Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

On a whim, my husband and I decided to try out this restaurant. The food was excellent - nice size portions. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. They were featuring a baked snapper the night we went and it was delicious! Their key lime pie is awesome, too. We will definitely return when we visit next year.

“Always the highlight of our vacation in Anna Maria.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

We go to AMI every May and September , we love, love the Island and one of the reasons is the Island Gourmet Restaurant. We had eaten there when the previous owners had it and were not impressed. But we decided to give it another try and were pleasantly surprised. What can I say. Scott and Lynn are two of the nicest people you will meet and have done a fabulous job of turning the Island Gourmet (in our humble opinion) into the best eating place In AMI. The Eggplant Lasagna is my husbands favorite and the Fillet and onion straws and those remarkable potatoes is mine. EVERYTHING ABOUT THE PLACE IS WAY ABOVE AVERAGE . Do not miss a fantastic dining experience, try this restaurant.

“Nice Out Door Seating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Our food was good and the portion size was large. Even though they were not busy the service was slow but, they were friendly. Enjoyed sitting outside watching the people going by.
