We made reservations for 7pm hoping to be seated outside for sunset. Although we had requested outside seating, they only had an inside spot available. We decided to wait inside at the bar until we could go outside. Of course everyone out there lingers to see the sunset, so we were not seated in time. That was the only downside... More

Very attentive staff and the food was very good and priced reasonably. We ate outside and had a spectacular view of the sunset. All of our dishes were well prepared. We will come back to here again.

We ate upstairs on the balcony with a nice view of the stars. The Grassy Grouper was very good and the bartender made a perfect Cosmo. Not too sweet!

Their food is always spot on. If I am going out for something fancy I sit upstairs in the bistro where the view from up there is the best on the island. The staff is the nicest in town. If I am out for a casual day on the beach I sit right below in their Island Time Bar on... More

We were introduced to this restaurant by family staying in the area. While they had previously had good results our visit was far less successful. The initial seating and service was good. Ordering was prompt and the salads were well prepared. Trouble came as we waited a very long time for the main course. Our waiter Scott must of sensed... More

Ok, so here is the bottom line. Very good food. Broad menu selection. Good wine list. Attentive service. Two different grouper dishes were very good as was the veal piccata. Limited outside seating on the third floor balcony is first come. Reservations are a good idea for inside seating. Our party of 5 sat outside on a beautiful evening proving... More

Although we read the reviews before dining we found it a little less good than others. We needed two hours for dinner on a Tuesday night. Service was slow and the food was not as hot as it should have been. The food was good, and there was parking in the rear which was essential for this location. The sunset... More

This place is extraordinary. The prices are consistent with the better restaurants on Anna Maria Island, the service is pleasant and competent, and the setting is very nice (I'm not a fan of the minutes before sunset over the Gulf of Mexico, given the glare, but the sunsets themselves are lovely and there's no better view than this restaurant allows.)...
