I visit eat here about 3 times a year, usually with friends for lunch either on the outside deck or across the street facing the intracoastal waterway. The service staff is friendly and works hard to please. Their black bean soup is fantastic. I have never had a bad meal. Inside is large with an upstairs and can handle large... More

First the best points: great location, great views from the terrace and friendly service. The bad news is the food is just so so and frankly looks tired in presentation. For the price (128 for two w wine) we expected more. Our apps disapointed yet were well presented. Our mains were just meh. No zing flavor just bland on bland.

Wandered in by chance in March and were very impressed. Came back tonight by choice. My Grassy Key Grouper and my wife's Apple Encrusted Grouper were both superb as was the service. My seafood gumbo was significantly oversalted but everything else was great.

My friend and I came here for Christmas dinner and it was wonderful. The food was excellent and the wait staff were friendly, accommodating, and everything you'd hope wait staff would be. We were able to sit outside on the third floor balcony and had a beautiful view of the Gulf. The photo is of our view from the outside... More

We had our daughter's wedding dinner at the Bridge Street Bistro and it was a complete success. Anna Maria Island is a wonderful place to have a destination wedding but planning from afar is an uncertain undertaking. A dinner after the ceremony is an even more stressful undertaking. We started planning about a year in advance and after a lot... More

It has been several years and several trips past this old favorite of ours. Tonight we decided to indulge. The parking lot was filled, much to our surprise. We learned that there was a 45 member wedding party on the second floor. The dining room was fairly empty until around 7 PM. My wife had the scallops as suggested by... More

I had a delicious Caesar Salad and the lobster bisque soup had large hunks of lobster. I can't wait to go back
