Where To Eat On Anna Maria Island

When visiting Anna Maria Island, you have to take advantage of the mouthwatering food scene. From upscale places for a dinner date to laid-back environments for a family meal, you’ll find them all in Anna Maria. All of these restaurants are just a short distance away from any Anna Maria Island beachfront rentals, so you can be dining in no time!

Casual Restaurants

For a great meal without all the fuss, one of the most popular stops is the Rod and Reel Pier. They’ve been open for over 60 years, serving traditional fare made with the freshest local ingredients. To finish off your meal, bring your fishing pole and cast off right on the dock!

Another great spot is the Bridge Tender Inn. Experience live entertainment while you try all the offerings on their extensive menu. They also have a large drink menu for the adults, and the view is something visitors of all ages will love!

Finally, if you want to catch the game, take a seat at Slim’s Place. This sports bar is loved by both visitors and locals, thanks to their unique menu and incredible happy hour deals. Here, the whole family can join in on the fun and cheer for your favorite team.

Unique Restaurants

For a fun seafood twist, visit Anna Maria Oyster Bar. They serve their specialty in more ways than you can imagine, from fried oysters to Oysters Rockefeller, or even raw! Still not convinced? They also serve plenty of other seafood and non-seafood entrees for the pickier eaters.

Want a taste of Mexico? Head to Poppo’s Taqueria on Pine Avenue for authentic flavors from south of the border. You’ll find all the classics from tacos to burritos to quesadillas and more. Their ingredients are fresh and procured with the environment in mind, so you’ll get a delicious meal that you can feel good about.

Harry’s Grill may look ordinary, but there’s an interesting story behind this eatery. Owners Jan and Mark Labriola dedicated the restaurant to their Coati Mundi, Harry, who passed away just before the restaurant opened in 2015. You can even spot him in their logo! If you can prove your name is Harry or Harrietta, you’ll get a drink on the house!

Fine-Dining Restaurants

For a sweet dinner date, try Beach Bistro, which serves up the finest ingredients in front of an unbelievable view of the water. Fresh and locally sourced seafood is incorporated into many of their dishes, but they also have non-seafood and vegetarian offerings to suit all palates.

Get a taste of Europe at French Table, where they serve classic French dishes like coq au vin, cassoulet, and more. Finish your evening with a glass of wine and a chocolate mousse or crème brulee for the perfect sweet touch.

Finally, Island Ocean Star is for those craving an authentic Japanese meal. With extensive entrée and sushi menus, everyone will find the perfect dish. Enjoy your evening indulging in fresh Asian cuisine with that special someone.

Dessert Shops

When the evening is done, it’s time for dessert! The Island Creperie on Bridge Street has a full menu but is perfect for grabbing a sweet treat after dinner. It’s a quick stop with delicious offerings that are sure to satisfy your sugar craving.

For a unique treat, The Donut Experiment will let you personalize your dessert. Start with a cake donut and choose from tons of different icings and toppings to get your ideal donut. Everyone will come away with something special, made just the way you like it!

If you want something cool, try Tyler’s Homemade Ice Cream for some soft serve, a banana split, or a milkshake. You can even get pints and quarts to go, so you can enjoy dessert back in your rental. Unique flavors and a passionate family of owners make for a winning combination.
