Three Great Anna Maria Island Restaurants

Whether you are planning a big vacation at one of our Anna Maria Island rentals or you are just passing through, there are some great locally owned restaurants to choose from on our island. From great seafood to the perfect place for breakfast at the beach, you’re sure to find just the right Anna Maria Island restaurant for every occasion. Here are three local restaurants that we particularly enjoy when we’re heading out for a bite on the island.

The Island Spice

While top-notch authentic Indian cuisine might not be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to beach restaurants, the fact of the matter is that The Island Spice is one of the best restaurants in town. We recommend trying out their Fish Coconut Curry or the Beer and Chorizo Mussels if you’re looking for a great meat dish. With plenty of tasty vegan and gluten free menu options, however, The Island Spice is also one of the best places on the island for those with dietary restrictions. When it comes to taking a break from the usual fried food and quick eats that you’ll find at the beach, this place really can’t be beat.The Island Spice is located at 1701 Gulf Dr North and can be reached at (941)527-0123.

Sharkey’s Seagrill

Of course, no visit to the beach is complete without enjoying some great local seafood, and Sharkey’s Seagrill has been a favorite with locals and travelers alike for years. Unlike most of the better seafood shacks you’ll find, Sharkey’s has a fairly upscale interior and is a great choice for celebrating a special occasion. You can’t go wrong with their market fresh fish trio or the catch of the day, but menu items like Shark on the Barbie and Key West Grouper are pretty tempting as well. Sharkey’s is located at 2519 Gulf Drive North and can be reached at (941)779-9151.

Mr Bones BBQ

If you’re in the mood for more casual fare, head on over to Mr Bones for some great barbeque in a laid back atmosphere. There’s no need to overthink it when it comes to this one; just stop on by and order whatever type of BBQ you’ve got a hankering for. The baked beans come highly recommended as far as sides go. Mr Bones BBQ is located at 3007 Gulf Drive and can be reached at (941)778-6614.
