We've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to try much of the wonderful local cuisine and these places keep us coming back time and time again!

Bridge Street Bistro

One of Terry's favorite restaurants on Anna Maria Island is the Bridge Street Bistro. At this multi-level spot, you can enjoy casual dining and live music every day downstairs, and date-night fine dining upstairs in the terrace amidst brilliant sunsets, tropical breezes, and the sounds of the surf. Bridge Street Bistro is the new hotspot for dining on Anna Maria Island and an experience you won't want to miss.


The Waterfront Restaurant

Located at the north end of the Island, The Waterfront Restaurant offers all the ingredients of a memorable meal. The outdoor patio overlooks the water, the Anna Maria Island Pier, and, further across the water, the world-famous Sunshine Bridge. Take in the views and enjoy a comprehensive menu that includes a fresh catch of the day, fresh salads and pastas and the best steak on the Island.


The Sandbar Restaurant

Directly overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the Sandbar Restaurant is a local and tourist favorite known for its fresh Seafood. Situated on a large expanse of white-sand beach, the Sandbar offers front-row Gulf of Mexico views - best enjoyed at sunset. It's not unusual to see children playing in the sand, a beach wedding, and stars lighting up the sky all on the same evening.


Gulf Drive Cafe

The Gulf Drive Cafe is located directly on the newly re-nourished beaches on the southern part of Anna Maria Island. This family-friendly restaurant with a tropical viber serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, and was named one of the @best Breakfasts in Florida' by Southern Living Magazine. Also check out the adjacent property, owned by the same people, The Kokonut Hut, with nightly live entertainment, cocktails and an unbeatable spot for the island's famous sunsets.

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.
