Where to Eat

The Bradenton area and Anna Maria Island are home to award-winning bistros, cafes and restaurants. Our local restaurants have been recognized by many national magazines, including multiple times in Zagat, for their unique flavors, phenomenal locations, gulf front dining and impeccable service. From rustic beach-side Tiki Bars to elegant bistros illuminated by sunset or candlelight – meals are memories to be savored on Anna Maria Island and surrounding areas. The ambiance and views of our restaurants are as important as the foods being served. Our gulf-front or bay-side dining restaurants serve a special Anna Maria Island blend of flavor. Savor local seafood cuisine, local farm fresh dishes and local wine favored by many and admired by our worldly visitors. In addition, we boast some of the best known hamburger and barbecue eateries around. How fresh is the catch of the day? Our waters are home to grouper, red snapper, mullet and blue crab. Bay-side or gulf-side, outdoors or in, sunrise or sunset, we invite you to enjoy the secrets to island and coastal living — cool breezes, sounds of the waves crashing into the shore, star-filled skies and dining experiences like no other.
