Anna Maria Oyster Bar – on the Pier

Bradenton Beach – Anna Maria Oyster Bar (AMOB) is the newest additions to the Bradenton Beach restaurant scene. However, it’s no new comer to the area. With locations in Ellenton and Bradenton, AMOB has been serving up fresh seafood to locals and visitors for years.

AMOB on the pier is located at the base of the old historic Bradenton Beach City Pier once occupied by Rotten Ralphs. A fabulous location, you can choose to dine inside or outside on the covered deck. Either way you’ll find gorgeous views of Sarasota Bay, the anchorage and the pier.

Bradenton Beach Anchorage
The Anchorage off Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach is a popular area for visitors and locals to drop anchor for extended periods when coming by boat.

Offering many of the same great dishes of other locations, AMOB on the pier is a slight departure from its original concept. The menu is smaller than the Ellenton and Bradenton locations, but still manages to offer a little of something for everyone.

How to Order

At AMOB on the pier you order your food and drink at the counter first instead of the traditional table service. You are assigned a funny celebrity name on a plastic table tent when you order. Then you seat yourself anywhere you would like. When it’s ready, a server will bring your food out matching the order with your celebrity name. All your condiments and soft drinks are self serve, so you can load up on the cocktail and tarter sauce while you wait. Adult beverages may be purchased at the same time as the food. Additional drinks can be purchased from the friendly bar staff.

The Menu

Anna Maria Oyster Bay is know for oysters, but also boasts a menu that has a little of something for everyone. The breakfast menu offers omelets, a burrito, pancakes, an egg sandwich and eggs your way. Cappuccino, juice and coffee are also offered for breakfast.

The lunch and dinner menu include appetizers, an oysters section, entrees, and sandwiches. From the appetizers menu you’ll find items like coconut shrimp, calamari and chicken wings. The oysters menu offers them fried, raw, Rockefeller, chipotle, garlic parmesan, or a sampler platter of four types. On the entree menu there is fresh fish options, fish and chips, shrimp, scallops, ribs and chicken. For sandwich offerings you’ll find a burger along with chicken or fish sandwiches. AMOB is truly a family friendly restaurant and offers a great kids menu!
