For a casual restaurant that serves fantastic seafood at a fantastic price, head on over to Anna Maria Oyster Bar on the Pier. This Bradenton Beach restaurant is one of 4 locations, though this is the only one on the Island.
If you’re a parent with a child under 10 you’re going to love what I am about to tell you – kids under ten eat for a penny an inch Sunday – Thursday. You may be confused as to what this means, but its going to save you some $. Basically, at all locations they measure the child’s height, and whatever their height is (say 40 inches) is what you pay for their meal (so $0.40). You can’t beat that!
AMOB on the Pier overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, so you always have a water view. If you’re staying at South Beach Village, this bayside eatery is just a short trip away.
The menu at this location is slightly different than the other 3 locations. The menu consists of mainly seafood, with fresh calamari, tuna sashimi, grouper sandwich, fried clam strips, etc. Let me tell you some of my personal favorite menu items here; The portabella mushrooms on the appetizer menu, and the gulf shrimp, fish & chips, and king crab legs on the dinner menu.
Now, this place is called the “Oyster Bar”, so of course there are plenty of different styled oysters to choose from. They have classic raw oysters, garlic parmesan oysters, oyster Rockefeller, and a few other styles.
Anna Maria Oyster Bar on the Pier is open for lunch and dinner everyday of the week from 11am – 10pm (11pm on Fridays and Saturday).
