We stopped here for a nice, fun evening meal on the beach with a sunset. It is easy to get find, just travel west through Bradenton, and when you get to Anna Maria Island, don’t turn. Just go straight into the public beach parking lot....More

Went for the all you can eat fish and chips. O.K if you like frozen chip's. But DO NOT order a beer. We were charged $8 each because they put it in a fancy glass to keep. No other option was given. What a rip...More

Great breakfast, but come early or you'll be standing in line a long time. The all-you-can-eat pancakes are a hit with kids (but your barely need a refill). Prices are decent, and the view on the beach is what you come for.

Very casual- walk up to stand to order, and then sit down to look at the Gulf. The food is delivered to your table. Certainly nothing fancy, but a great breakfast.

We just recently moved here and several people told us about this place. From the parking lot, it doesn't look like much but walk around the building and you'll find a beautiful view. We love eating breakfast at the beach - perfect. Service is friendly....More

One other thing to keep in mind - if you choose to get the "all you can eat" pancakes, there is a cutoff time after which they don't make any more pancakes. You can go to the pancake window a few minutes before the cutoff... More
