Music, great food and fun are simple yet defining factors of Harry’s Grill and Bistro located on scenic Gulf Drive in the City of Anna Maria. This local favorite establishment was started by Mark and Jan Labriola who met on Match.com about 5 years ago before deciding to launch their island venture.
At the time, Jan had already owned a successful mortgage company while Mark was a director of safety at the former largest homebuilder in the U.S. On a spur of the moment decision after the market crash of 2008, they decided to sell their belongings, hop in a RV and make their way to Florida to start fresh.
After a few missed opportunities to purchase buildings in Florida, they were presented with the chance to purchase the current location of Harry’s on the north end of Anna Maria Island, in an area that the couple loved.
