The Beach House Restaurant — Great food, beautiful unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico and all around awesome atmosphere where you can eat with your toes in the sand! Located at 200 Gulf Drive North, Bradenton Beach, just a few minute walk from Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals - 601 Gulf Dr. N. Anna Maria Island, Florida 34217. The Beach House Restaurant opened in 1993 and recently underwent a major remodel, wow, what a huge improvement! Since the completion of the renovations there is indoor or outdoor seating available year round in any type of weather. With the installation of transparent vinyl curtains and overhead heaters and misters, rain or wind is no longer an issue. Also, a new, state-of-the-art rotating overhead awning system rotates 180 degrees to allow for total sunlight or closes to allow for complete cover and shade. When entering the restaurant you are led through the gift shop with lots of Florida items. We always stop and take a look, inevitably purchasing a memory to take home with us. You pass through the indoor dining area which leads to the outdoor seating. Our preference is to be seated outdoors - we never want to miss the million dollar view of the Gulf, but indoor seating is comfortable and tastefully done.

The Beach House known for its fresh local gulf-to-table seafood and farm-to-fork produce has an extensive moderately priced menu. On our most recent visit we ordered calamari as an appetizer, which is amazing and our entrees included the seafood trio and short rib taco which were also amazing. The home made rolls with pina colada butter are delicious! They have a good selection of craft beer and some tasty tropical drinks. No dessert for us, but the party beside us ordered The Beach Castle and Key Lime Pie and said they were both excellent, so maybe next time.


If all of this isn’t enough, now there is one more reason to make the Beach House your favourite place to dine while visiting with Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals. Celebrating summer a little early, the Beach House has extended their Happy Hour time. Happy Hour is now available from 11:30 pm – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday!
Enjoy delicious Margarita’s, Strawberry Daquiri’s, Miami Vice and Pina Colada’s all 2 for 1. Welcome cocktails, drafts and house wines are also 2 for 1.

This will definitely be a place you will want to return...not just for Happy Hour. This is a perfect place for lunch or dinner. Also a great place to catch a stunning Florida sunset.

Hi, I am Terry, my wife Sandy (who writes our blogs) are the caring, hands on owners and managers of Anna Maria Condo Rentals. We’ve been here for years, so we know Anna Maria Island, the island’s condos, and our island’s guests. We understand you – what you need, what you want, and what you’d really like to have. With us, every stay balances the rigorous requirements of professional managers with the enthusiasm, pride and personal touches of an owner-managed rental. That means that with us, you enjoy the dual benefits of an in-the-know local combined with the professionalism and expertise of a serious company. Come on down and experience the difference for yourself. Our family fell in love with Anna Maria Island the first time we visited in 1989. Every summer since, we’ve spent our vacations on this island, and in 1995, we bought our first condo here. Having a young family at the time meant we had to rent our condo to offset ownership costs. Thankfully, by offering luxurious accommodations at an affordable price, we were able to keep the condo booked for an average of 50 weeks a year. These steady bookings allowed us to purchase our second condo in 2013, and a third in 2014. While opening up these homes has allowed us to keep returning to the island—and even better, to a house that feels like home—we also truly enjoy offering a place to guests to discover Anna Maria Island and feel at home here, too.
