Eat & Drink
Chain restaurants? Very few. Our restaurants are refreshingly local and extremely good. Fresh grouper just pulled from the Gulf and a beer or two is a local favorite. Of course you have to go to Rod & Reel Pier for a beer but here are a few others off the beaten path.
An award winning restaurant offering indoor & outdoor dining with views of Tampa Bay, Egmont Key. Good beer and wine.
The only golf course on the island is Key Royal Club, a private country club with social memberships. Don't worry there are amazing courses a short drive off the island that won't take a bite out of your vacation budget.
Host to many PGA events this course is challenging. As the name implies there is lots of.
Grouper, snapper, mackerel are just a few favorite fishing adventures found off Anna Maria Island. Inshore or backwater fishing is also very popular. And, you can always fish off the beach or piers. Fishing charters are a blast.
