Where to Eat
Anna Maria Island is home to award-winning bistros, cafes and restaurants. Anna Maria Island has been recognized by many national magazines for its unique tastes, phenomenal on-the-water locations and impeccable service.
From rustic beach-side Tiki Bars to elegant bistros illuminated by sunset or candlelight, meals are memories to be savored on Anna Maria Island. The ambiance and views of the restaurant are as important as the foods being served.
Our gulf-front or bay-side dining restaurants serve a special Anna Maria blend of flavor. Savor seafood delights or gourmet cuisine ranging from British, French, German, Italian, Asian and Spanish to Florida favorites. And FYI, Holmes beach boasts some of the island’s best known hamburger and barbecue rib eateries!!
How fresh is the catch of the day? Our waters are home to grouper, red snapper, mullet and blue crab. bay-side or gulf-side, outdoors or in, sunrise or sunset, Anna Maria Island locals invite you to enjoy their secret to island living — cool breezes, sounds of the waves crashing into the shore, star-filled skies and a dining experience like no other.
These are some of our favorites!
