We had appetizers, wine, a couple dinners to split with each other. The service was great and we really enjoyed sitting outside. Very comfortable atmosphere and good food.

Looking for fantastic food with a great dining experience? Beach Bistro is the place to go! Not only do you get your choice of dining front and center on beautiful Anna Maria Beach or if you prefer indoor dining, either one, the view is spectacular!...More

My wife is borderline celiac and was easily able to enjoy a full and wonderful meal at Beach Bistro last October. The staff was very accommodating and helpful in advising her regarding the menu.
