The Bridge Tender Inn is located at the entrance of the Bridge Street pier in Bradenton Beach. They serve lots of fresh seafood, and as of late have tuna, shrimp, scallops and more.

If you have already had your fill of seafood on your Anna Maria Island vacation don’t worry. The Bridge Tender restaurant has duck, pasta, steak, ribs, a vegetarian dish and much more. For a more relaxed atmosphere visit the bar style outdoor dining area.

The bar side offers a limited menu which serves a lighter fare. Sit outside and gaze at the intracoastal bay side of the island. On most days the Bridge Tender Bar area opens up to allow the inside to become part of the outside. The name Bridge Tender is of important significance. Anna Maria Island’s first bridge to the was here in Bradenton Beach. The men who operated the bridge were called Bridge Tenders.
