There are so many wonderful restaurants on Anna Maria Island. Lucky for us, in December 2020 we got The Chateau Anna Maria. The Chateau Anna Maria sits inside the Waterline Marina Resort, where Eliza Ann’s Coastal Kitchen once was.
The Chateau Anna Maria is actually owners Buddy Foy Jr., and his wife, Jennifer’s 2nd location, with the original situated on Lake George in New York. You might be familiar with the New York restaurant, as it has been featured on the Food Network TV show “Summer Rush”.
Sarasota Magazine did a review and gave the food and atmosphere both favorable recognition. When reviewing the restaurant’s extravagant seafood tower the writer says, “The flavors are perfect—just the clean, pure aroma of icy seawater on a cold, clear day.
The Chateau Anna Maria Menu
It is a French-inspired restaurant, that serves Italian-sized portions! The Chateau Anna Maria is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, and is open for Brunch as well on Saturdays & Sundays.
On the Brunch menu you can find mouth-watering dishes such as Crème Brûlée Pancakes and King Crab Benedict. For lunch they have mouth wateirng selections like Grilled Portobello Panini and Fish & Chips.
For dinner you will find Pan-Roasted Swordfish and Surf & Turf plus much more on the menu. They also have a fabulous drink menu, with plenty of cocktails and wine options to choose from. View the full menu here.
Do You Need a Reservation? Is There a Dress Code?
If you are on AMI (or the local area) and want to try a new restaurant for date night, make a reservation here at The Chateau Anna Maria. Reservations are not mandatory yet definitely recommended on weekends or holidays.
There is no fancy dress code at the Chateau Anna Maria, its Florida where flip flops and shorts are considered “dressed up”. The atmosphere may be upscale but you don’t have to be!
