Love the all you can eat fish and the margaritas are great, great value for the money! Margaritas are only 3.50 and have a decent kick. Service is impeccable and though we had a 30 minute wait, was well worth it

My folks have been several times, but this was my first visit. We arrived around 1pm and the place was packed - but by 1:15 all the early arrivals were departing and the dining room cleared a bit. Our server Brooklyn was perky and efficient. We each started with a cup of clam chowder which was blissfully hot, and very... More

We have always had great service at Anna Maria Oyster Bar in Ellenton. This is a family chain business that offers an atmosphere out of towners would absolutely love! My husband had the blackened mahi mahi and I had the scallops and shrimp with a nice side house salad. The portions are quite disappointing and the food was just ok... More

I Got seafood pasta with shrimp and scallops which was good but my husband got mahi mahi which he had to send back. I tasted it but couldn't eat it. They cooked more which was good but I'm convinced the first was bad/ old. We both ended up being sick when we got home.😝

In 2005, I moved to Bradenton FL. The very first place I ate in the area was The Anna Maria Oyster Bar on Ellenton. It was great then and it is still great today. The fish and chips (all you can eat) has increased in price, but the quality of the food and the excellent service make this one of... More

There were 3 menus to pick from plus specials - too many. The vegetable of the day was terrible (mixed vegetables) - the carrots were hard/raw slightly warmed the broccoli and green beans were way over cooked - I guess no one picked the vegetable of the day for a side dish. The baby back ribs were very fatty but... More

Went here for dinner. What a great place! Thought is would be overflow but got right in. Our server Katie was very attentive and took good care of us albeit a minor slip up. The deep fried portabello mushroom appetizer was really unique and tasty. Also had the crab cake appetizer but I have had better. They were okay but... More
