We vacationed on Anna Maria Island last week and this restaurant was recommended to us. Reservations are needed for indoor dining (outdoor dining is first come, first served). Elegant restaurant; top notch service and delicious, fresh seafood. Among us, we ordered the lobster bisque, fried green tomatoes, waterford and caesar salads ($6 each), crab cakes ($28), shrimp and grits ($25) and Malbec wine; bread with herbed dipping oil was served with the meal.The shrimp and grits were very flavorful; my only complaint was that there were fairly large pieces of chorizo sausage, that were not crisply cooked, in the dish. Salads were average, soup was delicious. We did not feel rushed at all, despite a full restaurant (as of about 6:00pm). Would definitely recommend.

My lady and I wanted a good lunch while on the Island. Waterfront Restaurant fit the bill nicely. Friendly staff, good food and a nice view of the waters to the north! Lady had the Classic Cesar with Salmon, which she loved. I had the Kung Pao Calamari. It was a novel and delicious take on the usual way restaurants make calamari. Thought they'd be too soft or chewy, but they had some crunch and a tangy taste. We'll come again soon!

This has always been a favourite of mine and going back after a couple of years it still is. The food was outstanding and friendly staff. If you go make sure you try the lobster bisque amazing!

This was the one place that I made a reservation at on Anna Maria Island and we were so glad that I did. We dined on the 5th and were fortunate to have Al as our server. Al was outstanding throughout our stay and he is a real asset to this gem of a restaurant. Once we ordered an adult beverage for my wife we started with the soup of the day and tropicale salad. Both were very good. Entrees were the risotto julienne and roast beef. I also ordered the truffle tots for us to pick on. Both entrees and those addicting tots were perfect plates. We did not make it to dessert, but will certainly be back in the future. Make that reservation and do arrive on the earlier end of service so that you can sit outside to enjoy the whole experience.

We were looking for another restaurant and came across this one and found it very delightful. They told us there would be a wait, so we enjoyed a drink at the bar where the bartender was pleasant and entertained us while waiting. Upon getting our table we were seated outside which was extremely hot at the time but they seemed to have some fans going and the breeze from the gulf made it enjoyable. Both my wife and I had some of the fish specials and they were extraordinarily prepared. Wasn’t a lot of food but did hit the spot. The waitress was exceptional and made the overall evening very nice. Would go back if in the area.
