Dining

Most Anna Maria resorts boasts formal restaurants with upscale menus, but the real flavor of the island is best sampled at its low-key beachfront restaurants. For ribs and burgers, head to casual eateries lining Holmes Beach. For jerk chicken or bangers and mash, head to Bradenton Beach where tropical-themed waterfront bars boast eclectic menus. Venture to the mainland, where even more fine dining choices await.
