Known for its white-sugar beaches and cozy, quaint feel, Anna Maria Island is a popular getaway for locals and travelers from far and wide. This little island takes visitors back in time to enjoy “old” Florida, with historic buildings lining the main streets and not a single high rise or fast food restaurant in sight.
With an endless list of places to visit and enjoy, we'd like to help you narrow down what to do, where to stay, and where to eat by sharing our favorite spots on AMI.
Floridays Woodfire Grill and Bar
With beautiful waterfront views, a fun Florida-feel, Floridays has exactly what you need to officially switch to island time. On the menu, one will find everything from fresh seafood to classic burgers.
On Friday and Saturday nights, check out the Tiki Bar for live music and tropical drinks.
For a unique and unforgettable dining experience, The Porch is at the top of our list. Choose from a selection of speciality spritzers, top-quality steak, and to-die-for desserts in one of the first homes built on Anna Maria, FL that has been carefully restored for visitors to enjoy for years to come.
The Bridge Tender Inn & Dockside Bar
Hang out with the locals at this waterfront restaurant and bar. Established in 1989, the Bridge Tender Inn offers delicious food, fun drinks, and is a great spot to watch some sports while enjoying a draft beer (especially if you're a Packers fan).
