Top 4 Favorite Restaurants on Anna Maria Island
We’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to try much of the wonderful local cuisine and these places keep us coming back time and time again!
Bridge Street Bistro
One of Terry’s favorite restaurants on Anna Maria Island is the Bridge Street Bistro. At this multi-level spot, you can enjoy casual dining and live music every day downstairs, and date-night fine dining upstairs in the terrace amidst brilliant sunsets, tropical breezes, and the sounds of the surf. Bridge Street Bistro is the new hotspot for dining on Anna Maria Island and an experience you won’t want to miss.
The Waterfront Restaurant
Located at the north end of the Island, The Waterfront Restaurant offers all the ingredients of a memorable meal. The outdoor patio overlooks the water, the Anna Maria Island Pier, and, further across the water, the world-famous Sunshine Bridge. Take in the views and enjoy a comprehensive menu that includes a fresh catch of the day, fresh salads and pastas and the best steak on the Island.
The Sandbar Restaurant
Directly overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the Sandbar Restaurant is a local and tourist favorite known for its fresh Seafood. Situated on a large expanse of white-sand beach, the Sandbar offers front-row Gulf of Mexico views – best enjoyed at sunset. It’s not unusual to see children playing in the sand, a beach wedding, and stars lighting up the sky all on the same evening.
Gulf Drive Cafe
The Gulf Drive Cafe is located directly on the newly re-nourished beaches on the southern part of Anna Maria Island. This family-friendly restaurant with a tropical viber serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, and was named one of the @best Breakfasts in Florida’ by Southern Living Magazine. Also check out the adjacent property, owned by the same people, The Kokonut Hut, with nightly live entertainment, cocktails and an unbeatable spot for the island’s famous sunsets.
