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 is actually the owner’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”. According to Sarasota Magazine, the opening experience of the Anna Maria location will also be shown on TV. The Chateau Anna Maria sits inside the Waterline Marina Resort, where Eliza Ann’s Coastal Kitchen once was.
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. Grilled Portobello Panini and Fish & Chips featured at lunch, and 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.
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!
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.
