This was our favorite restaurant experience in Anna Maria. Small place, but great view, old school interior with fantastic food and service. Lots of little extras with the meal, and the staff really go out of their way to make sure you're treated like family...More

The Place that Anna Maria has needed for years. Small, elegant, yet that Island feel. The Food, Wine and Service were simply brilliant. Best food on the Island and surrounding area!

My wife is borderline celiac and was easily able to enjoy a full and wonderful meal at Beach Bistro last October. The staff was very accommodating and helpful in advising her regarding the menu.
