We used to always include several meals at Gulf Drive Cafe when we vacationed on AMI. So of course we stopped to enjoy a familiar haunt after an extended absence from Anna Maria Island visits. We were first surprised at how much they had expanded, then shocked to learn they no longer offered indoor seating! It was a Sunday afternoon in August, and they wanted us to sit in the sun when it was easily in the mid-90s. NO THANK YOU and BYE-BYE.

Came for breakfast, waited 40 minutes for 2 eggs that arrived stone cold. Replacement eggs not much better. Server reduced price of inedible eggs by 50% so I still ended up paying for them.

Love this place, we go most nights on our vacation each year to watch the sunset with a cocktail or two! The view is outstanding, the staff and service are both great. Food is very good too. Wonderful atmosphere in this little bit of paradise.

It was a lovely place for a relaxing lunch. We sat just inside the open doors for the shade and the fan because it was a very hot day. We were able to look out on the Gulf and even saw some dolphins. My friend had a crab cake sandwich and I had the Greek Salad with the Feta cheese. Both were delicious! The service was very good and we had a great lunch.
