If this restaurant were on the mainland, it would be out of business. But, it is on one of the best locations possible. A wonderful view of the bay and you can watch dolphins showing off while enjoying your meal on many occasions. The servers are friendly and efficient but the place is very small. The food is average and... More

I have family on the Island and visit about 3 - 4 X per year. The City Pier is a must-do for me. They have the best lobster bisque in the area - chunks of lobster meat and a lovely flavor I also love the tuna appetizer. I've attached a picture. The coconut shrimp comes with a nice dipping sauce... More

My husband and I visited the City Pier yesterday. Very good food, service and reasonable prices. He had the fish sandwich and I had the chicken tender sandwich. Both of us had huge pieces of fish/chicken. We bought took some off to eat separate. We bought highly recommend the City Pier Restaurant.

The View is great from anywhere in the restaurant but the food is so so. Definitely would not recommend for food quality, but if you like to watch folks fish and views of the bay and bridge it has an excellent location. No need to go again, but glad I went.

Ate here twice this trip & on several occasions on previous trips. I feel that the place is now trading on its location & not trying too hard with the food. Both times we visited the food was hit & miss. Popcorn prawns soggy & chewy - black peas and rice a tasteless mush. They know how to cook fish... More

We had never been to Anna Maria Island before so we thought we would check it out. What a beautiful island. A friend had mentioned to me that they have eaten at city pier but we're unhappy the last time they were there. We thought we would give it a try. The view was great. I had the gumbo it... More

My Aunt and Cousin were visiting from Chicago, we went there for the view which was excellent. The food was good, the servers were friendly. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. This place is the Real Florida.
