Dining out … Bradenton Beach
Three of our favourite Bradenton Beach restaurants all within walking distance of our condo /
If you prefer not to walk or drive, you can take the free island trolley. There is a trolley stop on Gulf Drive, right in front of the condo. Take it south and get off at the corner of Gulf Drive and Bridge Street. Coming back, reverse going north.
Bridge Tender Inn and Dockside Bar
Our “go to restaurant” this place is a little gem. You can dine in the spacious indoor restaurant, outside on the patio or at Dockside Tiki bar by the Bay. Imagine eating as you enjoy the many anchored boats out on the bay – true Paradise! On our last of many visits, we ordered a shared appetizer, ‘Fred’s chicken livers’, which was delicious. Main course of Roast Duck with house made raspberry sauce and Grouper Reuben sandwich were great too. We always seem lucky with entertainment, the live music adds to the overall enjoyment of our visits. This is a lovely place to just sit and have a drink, both at night and in the day.
Bridge Street Bistro
Located on the corner of Bridge Street and Gulf Drive right in the heart of all the activity on Anna Maria Island. The atmosphere here is relaxed yet refined and the attire is resort casual. This is an out of sight spot that could be missed because it is on the third floor above Island Time Grill. They have an elevator, for those who don’t desire to climb stairs. The food is consistently good and staff gives you a personal touch service. Order steak or Cedar planked salmon and you will not be disappointed. They have both indoor and outdoor dining. The outdoor terrace with tables overlooking the Gulf offers a fabulous view of the amazing sunsets. A quiet atmosphere with a well appointed menu at reasonable prices Bridge Street Bistro continues to exceed our expectations at every visit.
Island Time Grill
Located on the ground floor beneath Bridge Street Bistro. A casual indoor/outdoor restaurant offering a nice menu selection and live entertainment. With a myriad number of large TV screens it is a great place to watch sports, while enjoying a burger, cold beer or a refreshing cocktail. The Island Time Burger and Classic Reuben both make for a delicious meal. Also a great place for a light dinner and drinks. For a family it is a place enjoyed by all age groups. Lots of seating.
