If you're on Anna Maria island you need to stop by and check out the all you can eat pancake breakfast. Best pancakes around. They have a large menu so if you don't want pancakes there's plenty of good food to choose from!

Took a break from the beach to grab a bite and was not impressed. Got fish and chips- fish was just ok, lacked flavor and was a bit too greasy. Friends said they were not impressed by their meals (shrimp tacos and a cheeseburger). While we were not expecting anything out of this world, we did expect to at least... More

If you are a beach lover this place is for you. We enjoyed a great breakfast right on the beach. They have a nice set up. You order your food at the window, they give you a number and bring it to your table. Their coffee includes free refills all day long. We both had breakfast sandwiches on a bagel... More

A simple breakfast on the beach. We could walk from our place, so made a point to get one breakfast as a special meal. I had eggs with rye toast; others had the all you can eat pancakes and the veggie omelette (very nice looking). Locals do eat here. I saw a couple with a good-looking egg mcmuffin with bacon...

This is a wonderful cafe with an extensive menu. There is something for everyone! The best part is that it is right on the Beach! You can wear your swimsuit to eat, have adult beverages, and be right on a beautiful beach!!

Although it would appear there is an inside restaurant (perhaps for breakfast) -- at the time we were there (around 2:30PM) it was a walk-up to the window, order and pay and have your food brought to your table situation. I had a turkey club and the two others had tuna fish sandwiches with drinks. There were many choices of... More

This is more than your typical beach concession stand. They have all the standard items, plus freshly cooked seafood, sandwiches, and sides. Both the fish sandwich and the grilled chicken sandwich are large enough to share (2 chicken breasts on the chicken sandwich). Fries are good, onion rings are so-so, fresh lemonade is good. Order at the counter, find a... More
