The renstaurant was recommended by local family members as a favorite. It's easy to find and get to. You do have to time your visit for the best experience. There is an early bird special, known to all the locals. We arrived around 5:15pm-5:30pm, just as the early birds were beginning to depart, leaving us with a minimum wait time.... More

We went for lunch. The restaurant was celebrating 20 years. Our waiter, Chris was very attentive. I ordered the special, shrimp and grits, very good. We also had clams and all you could eat fish. The restaurant was very busy. Our food arrived quickly and delicious. A great place for lunch and dinner.

For excellent Seafood everyone thinks you have to be right on the water, most of the time that is because of the atmosphere. One of my favorite places however is not so close, but not so far from the water either. The Anna Maria Oyster Bar on Cortez road is a great spot to have some authentic Gulf Seafood. I... More

We go to AMOB on Cortez several times while we are there for 6 to 7 weeks. This is in May and June. We have had all the fish you can eat and coconut shrimp and mussels and by all means the oysters on the half shell. We have relatives in Dade City and have taken them here to eat... More

I'm here in FL for a couple of months and after a great day at the beach my husband and I stopped here to eat. We both ordered the coconut shrimp which we both like very much. You get to choose 2 sides from their menu (slaw, fries, applesauce, veggie of the day, red skin potatoes, etc.). I got the... More

Excellent seafood menu that delivers on taste. Recommend the shrimp and oysters. The wait staff hitting the floor every 5-10 minutes with another "happy birthday" song was annoying to say the least. Killed the abeyance and gave the local restaurant an akward big chain restaurant feel.- not good, and did I mention annoying?!

The fish and chips here is absolutely delicious, but a bit on the greasy side. Food is good, not outstanding typical Florida assortment of options. Wait was long, Price is a little bit high, atmosphere was decent.

My family enjoyed dinner and a birthday celebration for my father in law. Long wait to be seated, but is to be expected on a Sat night. Our waiter was friendly and very efficient for our party of six. We first enjoyed appetizers: fried oysters, gumbo (excellent) and the haystack onions (great & enough for all six of us to... More

Very beachie atmosphere. They also have a large patio dinning atmospher. They did have music the night we... More
