Chuck E Cheeses is short drive from Anna Maria

One of the great things to do that is close to Anna Maria island and the beaches on a rainy day is to go to Chuck E Cheeses.  The kids absolutely love it!  I like it because it is safe.  The moment you walk in there is always someone there to greet you and make sure everyone in your party gets a hand stamp.  The stamp correlates for the entire party so no adult can leave with a child that does not match their stamp.

The menu is fair for kids.  The pizza is OK, not the best I have ever had but they also have a salad bar and appetizers.  Drink selections are water, soda and beer.  Don’t forget that they have birthday parties here as well.

The games are fun for children from the age of toddlers all the way up to adult age children at heart.  My son loves the shooting games and the boccie ball.

The nearest location is a short fifteen minute drive away, the address is below, Have fun!

Hurricane Hank’s On Anna Maria Island

Holmes Beach – Looking for some good pub grub?  Maybe your favorite team is playing, and you wanted to catch the game. I know a place in Holmes Beach where you can find both! While on Anna Maria Island make sure one of your stops is Hurricane Hank’s Bar & Grill.  You definitely have to try the BBQ burger or the black-bean quesadilla. Those are two favorites of the agents in my office. Also on the lighter side they have some mouth watering salads. The Grilled Sesame Chicken Salad or just a Classic Caesar being the top picks. They are also family friendly with great kid’s baskets of chicken fingers, fried shrimp or fish all served with french fries.

Hurricane Hank’s offers a full service bar, and offers a package store directly next to the restaurant where you can purchase beer, wine, liquor and island souvenirs.

The atmosphere is island style with bright colors and beach memorabilia. The dress code is “come as you are” whether that be in a business suit or bathing suit. This may turn into one of your favorite island hot spots.

Cafe on the Beach, Anna Maria Island

Outdoor seating at Cafe on the BeachOk everyone, I have a restaurant you all have to try!  The Café on the Beach is the place to be on the weekends or any day really.  On the weekends you can enjoy the famous “All You Can Eat” pancake breakfast.  Friends of mine were there recently and said, “It isn’t just pancakes.  You actually get a full breakfast!”  During the week they offer delights such as hamburgers, hotdogs and snacks for relaxing days at the Manatee Public Beach in Holmes Beach.  This is a great location to enjoy our beaches because you have a lifeguard on duty, a playground, public All you can eat breakfast at the Public Beachrestrooms, a large public parking lot and a little beach shop for Florida souvenirs.   It is also perfect if you have little kids because you unpack the car once, and you have facilities near by to keep them happy.  As a new mom I can’t wait until my little one is big enough to enjoy the azure blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, sugar soft sand of Manatee Beach and the all you can eat pancakes that I remember from my childhood.

Just visited Cafe on the Beach for dinner and their fish and chips were great.  Right now they have all you can eat buffet’s Monday, Wednesday’s and Friday’s for dinner.  Currently they have an Italian Buffet, Taco and Fajita bar, and all you can eat fish and chips for their three night a week buffets.  We sat out outside in November surrounded by patio heaters and Mike Sales singing to the crowd.  Mike’s singing made us all get out of our seats to dance to a few oldies but goodies.
