Yes, there is something about a stroll down the pier. Now for the restaurant at the end. If your choice of beer extends beyond bud, miller then there was only one option. 3 of us chose mahi-mahi special which sounded very tasty but was very...More

Coolest place on the island to eat. Kids can fish or watch other people catch fish off the pier. Food is excellent . Long wait to get in but well worth it. Relax, grab a drink and just sit there and take in the sites.

Yearly we stay 3 houses down from this pier --- so frequent a lot. Breakfast, Lunch & dinner always great. Great location but very basic amenities ---it's a pier.Love the fresh grouper ---- served 3 ways.

We vacationed in Treasure Island for the week and 2 friends from home said you must go to Rod and Reel and get the grouper sandwich! So how could we not! We did and we were my dissappointed. Nothing like sitting high above the water...More

Honestly the freshest food on Anna Maria! Prices are fair and food always prepared perfectly. Quaint and no frills place at the end of a pier on the water. Beer selection lacking as they only serve basic domestics and a few types of wine. Would...More

We ate at the Rod & Reel Pier for lunch. Best Grouper Ruben sandwich ever. We also ordered key lime pie to go. That pie is so darn good. The slice of pie is so small though at 4.50 a slice. A little bigger slice...More

I'm not one to ever complain on these websites, but we (a couple of families with kids) were guests at this restaurant tonight and were treated so poorly by a brunette waitress waiting on the outside tables. We had a small child that was overheating,...More

I cannot speak to lunch or dinner, only breakfast. We've come here every year, mainly to walk the pier in hope of seeing manatees and to grab a quick breakfast. Really, how hard is it to prepare an edible breakfast? Not hard, especially for the...More

If you are eloping, it would be great. For anything bigger than that, no. It is a very rustic place, so IMO not a venue for a wedding party.
Curious if the Rod & Reel is nut-free. Visiting from Canada with my family, but my son is allergic to peanuts.......
