The restaurant is not huge so there is a wait however the time goes fast because of the way the waiting area is set up. It is conducive to meeting new people and in our case, talking to people who know Anna Marie Island well and are willing to share their other favorite places. The quality of the food was... More

Order the seafood stew! By any other name it would be Bouillibaisse or Ciopinno but for the addition of the Andouillisse sausage which adds to the flavor. Served with lightly toasted gRlic bread this is a true delight. It leaves you longing for a return visit. Service was prompt and friendly from our server Noah.

The favorites are always an excellent choice but I always order one of their specials for the day. The last time my wife had grouper cakes (very similar to crab cakes) and it... More

2nd restaurant of Beach Bistro - same great food without the beach view, but this is reflected in the somewhat reduced prices. Food has always been very good, and quantities are amble. Service is usually good, but we had a distracted server on our last visit. Seemed like he wanted to be somewhere else and we had to ask for... More

Very fresh tasty mahi mahi Fish tacos were good. Pot roast was generous portion and very good. Pizza was fine, crust not thin like they said but preferred it with some depth so all good

Love the menu items here. Unique creations and offerings. Prices might be a bit steep for some people, but we don't mind paying more for good food. Loved the drinks too!

This is my second time here. Both times were very enjoyable. Normally the fish is fantastic (my wife had the Mahi special) but this time I opted for the veal meatloaf...wow. If you are a meatloaf lover you must try it. Red cabbage and potatoes finished it off. Fantastic. As a starter I also had the kale and quinoa salad.... More

A nice change from the fish and beach restaurants on the island,tucked into a strip mall offering some great comfort food,pizza and tacos. The French Onion soup is the best I hav ever had and the meatloaf dinner with mashed is superb. No frills here just great food that Sean Murphy the owner is known for with a good selection... More

Great little place on Anna Maria Island. My wife and 12 year old son had Tai ribs, which they loved and I had their version of surf n turf, a good size filet mignon in Demi glacé with 3 jumbo shrimp, red cabbage and garlic mashed potatoes. My steak was perfectly cooked to my specification. We also had their "Titanic"... More
