So your children might be worried about what they can eat while vacationing on Anna Maria Island. There might not be McDonalds or Chick-fil-a, but have no fear! Today I will be giving you the low down on a few of my family's favorites.

Skinny’s Place

1) Skinny’s Place located at 3901 Gulf Drive, Anna Maria. (Just across the street from the public beach) They have an excellent array of burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs & chicken strips for those extra picky eaters. Kids will love being able to eat outside on the picnic tables and people watch while parents love being able to grab a quick and easy bite to eat that every one can enjoy. Don’t miss this hidden gem!


The Donut Experiment

2) The Donut Experiment at 210c Pine Ave, Anna Maria. There is no better way to start your day than with a delicious donut! Their donuts are fresh, made to order and with a wide variety of gourmet toppings. Mom and Dad can wash their donuts down and wake up with a fresh cup of gourmet coffee.


The Rod & Reel Pier Restaurant

3)The Rod & Reel Pier Restaurant 875 N Shore Dr, Anna Maria. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this old world Florida feel. The freshest fish on the island but also serving up kid friendly classics. This a the perfect option for everyone in your family. With an ubeatable view and even better food. Get there early as this is one popular spot!


Oma's Pizza & Italian Restaurant

4)If you need a portable to dinner to enjoy on your drive to the airport or you're planning a picnic on the beach then look no further than Oma's Pizza & Italian Restaurant 201 Gulf Drive, Anna Maria. Amazing, authentic pizza & calzones, spaghetti, ziti, garlic bread and more. All available at n affordable price and without a long wait or reservation. Sometimes after a long and hot day on the beach you want to just kick back, relax and stay in for a quick and easy dinner. This pizza hits the spot and is a tried and true family favorite of mine.

For those of you who have visited the Island before what were your family’s favorite dinner spots? If you are planning your trip are there any restaurants you have on your must visit list that I've missed? Would love to hear from you!

Meet The Author
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.
