Ocean Star sushi is well known by island residents and visitors who have come to Anna Maria Island year after year, and rightfully so. The food is absolutely to die for!
Ocean Star provides fantastic sushi, or you can go for the hibachi option and watch them prepare your meal before your eyes. The restaurant has seating for about 100 and in high season there can be a significant wait. The dining area has wooden booths, tables, a liquor bar and outdoor seating right on the water. Of course no restaurant should serve Sushi if they don’t have a bar area where you can sit and watch the chefs prepare sushi. The seating at the bar area is about 15.
Ocean Star has a strong take out business as lots of folks call in their sushi order and pick it up to eat at home or an Anna Maria Island Vacation Rental.
Insider tips – be sure to check the specials board for sushi. For children that don’t like sushi try out the chicken tempura. Some of my favorite sushi choices – volcano, Hawaiian, spider and caterpillar. Don’t forget to get yourself some sake where they fill a square glass up to the rim, as full as it can get.
