“Great food, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident - we were looking for a stopping point between Anna Maria Island and Tampa International Airport (once you hit 275N it's only chain restaurants and mostly highway to the airport).

This was a great find! The menu was diverse, full of great locally sourced fish options, and the prices were incredibly reasonable. The restaurant had indoor and outdoor seating, and the staff was pleasant and welcoming - we'd happily return to this restaurant (and tell our friends about it!).

We had the mahi mahi sandwich with steak chips served on a pretzel roll - huge sandwich and we could barely finish it. Other tables were enjoying tempura fried shrimp, calamari, and big salads - everything looked great!

We should have ordered take out to bring to the airport with us to have for dinner later that night! :)

“Loved it!!! From beginning to End”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

We went for my son's 17th Birthday (he picked it from the reviews) and we were very impressed. Great food, beautiful location and loved the Birthday celebration they brought out. Never seen fireworks as the display....loved it. The servers are young and i think a few might be new, very friendly and willing to get what you need (after you ask), not always observant. Didn't change how we felt about YachtSea, everyone has to start sometime, we will be back for sure and we have already shared with family and friends. I loved that the music wasn't so overpowering i couldn't hear our conversation, very relaxing place. The portions are big enough that i have some for lunch, can't wait!!

“Nice food, nice location”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

We joined another couple here for dinner and had a great time. The guys had different draft beers and the ladies had glasses of wine, all were happy. We had a variety of fish dishes all around, and all of us were quite satisfied. Sitting on the semi-enclosed terrace, this is a great location right on the river. We took a stroll along the Bradenton Riverwalk after dinner, which was nice as the sun was setting.

“YachtSea Grille not up to our standard”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We visited the Yachtsea Grille with 2 other couples. The biggest criticism was that they had guitar player that was loud so that we could not hear each other. The waiter was excellent and attentive. The food was above average. The atmosphere was good but the weather that no one can control was not conducive to this restaurant. It is setup for open air dining. They had to close the sides and maybe that caused the noise problem. We all had sandwiches and drinks as the entrees did not entice us.

Overall I would go back for lunch as it is on the walking path in Bradenton. A stroll and outdoor dining would fit better for this restaurant.
