I’m not a foodie so I don’t photograph it. BUT when I saw the amazing presentation of the meal at my niece’s rehearsal dinner, I couldn’t stop myself!! The delicious Caprese salad was just the beginning of this spectacular dinner. The grouper was served over fantastic risotto with a mouthwatering sauce. Spinach, asparagus and shrimp completed the meal. I don’t generally have a big appetite but that night there was no leftovers! Key lime completed this superior dining experience. The sunset view wasn’t bad either. This was how I spent the first 3 hours on Anna Maria Island. Everyone should be so lucky. Go and enjoy!

This is one of Anna Maria's finest choices. Reservations are a must. Parking is a challenge. The drinks are generous, the wine selection admirable, the food reliably excellent, the wait staff top notch.

I have been coming here at least once a year of my 7 yrs visiting the island. Great place to watch a game or listen to some music. You can even walk right across the street for a view of a great sunset. Food is good and prices are good also. See you again next fall.

We celebrated a milestone birthday on the 3rd floor terrace. The service was exceptional and food to match. We sat outside and watched the sunset over the Gulf - beautiful. They did have a complementary desert since it was my birthday but we passed as we had no room after our lovely dinner. I would recommend this to any one looking for a nice beach dinner.

We live nearby and know most of the restaurants in the Bradenton/Sarasota area. For some reason we had never visited Bridge Street Bistro and decided to book a table when friends recommended it. We're glad we did. The food was excellent and came with a great view of the ocean from the second story location of the restaurant. We had fish, not surprisingly given the view. The service was friendly and attentive. Some of the places nearby offer the margarita-fueled beach scene. Fine if that's what you are looking for. If you want a bit more of a laid back quiet meal with good food, check out Bridge Street Bistro. We will go back soon.
