Had a fantastic meal with mum and son at this restaurant. Booking is a must and fish of the day was beautiful and washed down with lovely white wine.

Just had a week on Anna Maria Island and luckily ate at The Waterfront-twice! The location is like sitting in paradise looking over the ocean and the food and ambiance was exceptional, we sat on the terrace outside but it's equally as nice inside, The menu is varied and everything we had was tasty and really well presented, lovely herb breads with oils to start you off. Spotlessly clean, a real 'must visit'! A lovely walk along the pier that's immediately opposite to end a perfect evening...even saw a dolphin in the shallow waters. Enjoy!!!

4 th visit and the food is always great, sadly the this time we felt as if we were unworthy and an inconvenience to our male waiter! Perhaps we should,have ordered the most expensive wine on the menu and maybe we could have been treated better !!!!!

We had lunch here on a glorious sunny day, sat out on the front looking out at the City Pier and the Gulf. The service and food were outstanding and the cost a good deal less than I expected for such a location and service. We celebrated my wife's birthday as a group of six, and they presented her with a complimentary Key Lime Pie. Fish taco's were especially good. Highly recommended.

We wanted a reservation before attending a local theatre8:00 performance. They said we had to come at 4:45 to ensure a time agreeable to our play time. We knew that was pretty early since the theatre was only 10 minutes away, but agreed. Upon arriving, there were at least 4 other tables available, and they remained open until just before we left. We all ordered fish, which was good but nothing special. The seafood chowder was tasty. Our server was very sullen and seemed impatient with us. When picking up our empty soups cups, she also took our salad/ bread plates. Was that a hint? She never asked if we wanted a second glass of wine. After we paid the check there was not even a "thank you for coming". In addition, upon leaving I mentioned to the manager/hostess that we wished we could have dined a little later or enjoyed a glass of wine from Happy Hour before our meal. I said it looked like they had had several no shows( trying to make polite conversation). She said that they had kept those tables open for later reservations about 6:00.She was also quick to brush me off. Now maybe everyone was having a bad day due to some restaurant problem that day. However, we are 4 adults who travel and dine frequently ( not young loud kids) who will not return here next year.
