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.
Great local watering hole, with a few pool. Tables and a good juke box.
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.
With consist high rating in Zagat Survey and being and Arnold Palmer design legacy is worth the money and the time.
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.
