February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 173

No matter your taste, Anna Maria serves up a wealth of gastronomic choices to quench your thirst and hunger. In this article you will find our Sirenia Favorites from the Sirenia Beach House.


The Waterfront: This restaurant boasts a laid back Floridian atmosphere "the way it used to be." The 1900 cottage boasts an open air patio overlooking the waters of Tampa Bay. They specialize in an international menu with the focus on seafood. They have a large selection of wines and hand crafted micro brews.

Beach Bistro: Award winning sumptuous food that is rated in Zagat's Top Restaurants in America and has received "Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence for one of the best wine lists in the world". The place to go for that fancy night out on the town. The bistro has a fine dining atmosphere overlooking the beach.

Eat Here: Features comfort food and family fare accompanied with artisanal beers and crafted wines. There is a small patio and eating area so get there early!

Sign of the Mermaid: Don't let this modest 1900 cottage fool you, inside you will find award winning inventive cuisine called 'Florida continental'. They serve a fantastic steak in addition to their seafood specialties. Their breakfasts are to die for with award winning desserts you can't go wrong! They are open for breakfast, brunch and dinner.

A.J.'s Island Network: A.J. is the best caterer on the island! If you need catering for your daily meals, small or large events then A.J. and her team of professional chefs will be more than happy to assist you. Their Fusion Cafe also hosts supper clubs and special wine tasting evenings that are not to be missed.


The Sandbar Restaurant: Aahhhh... Shangri La. This restaurant is a favorite for fresh Florida seafood not be missed for a tropical cocktail while watching the sun set from the outdoor beach 'dining room'. It is a wonderful setting for beach weddings.

Tortilla Bay: Great Tex-Mex food. We love the burritos! There is something for the whole family here. You can choose to enjoy your meals in their cozy and casual restaurant setting or take out.

The Beach House: Located a short drive from Sirenia in Bradenton Beach, this restaurant has lots of room and is owned by the same proprietors as The Sandbar Restaurant. Here you will find a larger dining area with a family friendly environment serving up the same great Florida seafood. Look for their "Beach Value Menu" and Happy Hour giving your great deals on their cocktails and delicious food.

Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub is located on the northern end of Longboat Key in Longboat Village. Arrive by boat to this restaurant and enjoy their casual Florida fare under the canopy of trees with the fairy lights twinkling after sunset while overlooking the Bay.

Ginny & Jane E's: Coffee shop...and shopping! A mix of quaint and quirky refurbished vintage items, jewelry and coastal furnishings are for sale here as well as a delicious bakery. This is the Hub of Anna Maria, a junction where locals and tourists alike can surf the net, enjoy specialty coffees, cakes and sandwiches. Not to be missed while you are on Anna Maria Island.

Martiniville: A great atmosphere. The courtyard is perfect for families with young ones who need to stretch their legs occasionally. They have great music playing on the stage or on one of the large screen T.V.'s. Their short rib nachos are a Sirenia favorite!

The City Pier Restaurant: Open for lunch and dinner, this restaurant is a real treat for eating "al fresco" Florida style. Great views, friendly service and casual dining are served up daily.

Rod & Reel Restaurant: This would have been Hemingway's favorite haunt, a very laid back atmosphere with indoor and outdoor dining - known for their excellent grouper sandwiches and casual seafood dishes. You can fish off the pier and listen to music while talking with locals and tourists alike.

Rudy's: They have in our opinion "THE BEST" subs on the island in a great old fashioned diner style restaurant. Dine in or take away and eat on the beach a block away. Don't give the girls any attitude or they will charge you for a high maintenance fee of 95 cents! Too funny!!!

Feeling Swell Surf Bar: Casual beach entrees and appetizers. They are known for their famous burgers and Friday happy hours!

Skinny's Place: Best beach diner in Holmes Beach owned by the same family since the 50's. The burgers, curly fries and frosty beer are the specialty here.

Minnie's Beach Cafe: Traditional southern breakfasts and lunches served up with a smile at a great price. This is where the locals go!

Rotten Ralph's: Two locations to serve you on Anna Maria Island in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach. They boast a relaxed "come as you are" dining experience. Watch the boats come and go into the marina at both locations.

Hurricane Hanks: A very colourful experience in Holmes Beach. This restaurant has a strong following that recommends many savoury items on the menu. They have special events happening regularly and are open for lunch and dinner.

Two Scoops: Our kid's favorite spot! A special treat not to be missed! Specializing in home made ice cream, malts, and big thick milk shakes. This shop is reminiscent of an old fashioned candy store. Grab a treat and head across the street to meander down the 100 year old pier to see what the fishermen are catching.
