Iconic and picturesque for Anna Maria. Fish (equipment rentable) or eat in the smallish cafe. Basic American seafood dishes plus classics such as burgers, BLTs, and chicken sandwiches. Food surprisingly good. My BLT was yummy. Accompanying fries excellent : medium cut with great taste and texture. Cole slaw good but not great - too heavy on the cabbage and no celery seeds. Great views out over water. Great service. We (4 of us) waited 20 minutes for a table for Wednesday lunch. Great people watching, especially on a good weather day.

We took friends here for lunch as it’s a great location with a million dollar view. The food we had was good but the menu was lacking a vegetarian choice. I was prepared to eat fish but would have found it difficult otherwise.
Would definitely go back.

We have been enjoying the Rod and Reel Pier since we first discovered Anna Maria Island years ago! They have a delicious breakfast and you can even enjoy watching the dolphins frolic and play from the amazing view upstairs in the restaurant. This is also a perfect spot to cast your line and do some fishing. They provide bait and equipment too if needed. They also have draft beer for super cheap in the bar downstairs. Restrooms available too. Come chill and relax at the Rod and Reel Pier.

Great place for a quick beer and snack while walking the beautiful beach. Fishermen casting off the pier and lots of fish visible beneath the clear waters of the Emerald Coast

If you fish, this may be a good place to spend an afternoon fishing off the pier. And it's a walk worth taking for the vistas over the Bay and the fish swimming in the clear blue waters below. But the restaurant is absolutely nothing special at lunch time, though the menu descriptions sounded a lot better than the food that arrived. But it's a good stop for raw clams and oysters and a cold beer, and the service is friendly.
