Yum. Yum. Get you some! The view is lovely and eating dinner with your toes in the sand (if you can snag a front table) is perfect. The sunsets here are perfect... And dinner was great. We shared shrimp to start, I had the grilled grouper with corn, cauliflower, spinach and tomato's and a side of gf cheese grits. No ill side affects and we plan on eating here again while on the island.
This place was amazing. Delicious dinner. Husband and I had drinks, raw oysters, a clam dish appetizer, scallops, etc. Yes there isn’t a gf bread or fries, but they mark their menu and there are plenty of wonderful seafood dishes and sides that are safe. The view is beautiful too, and drinks are great. It was very busy but staff was kind and helpful. A must visit.
They tried and failed ! I give two stars for even marking g/f items on their menu. And an additional star for having Tito’s ! The rest is an epic fail! The menu items are only g/f by nature ! No gf breads or options for even a French Fry ! Impatient server too!
This is our second visit with pretty much the same results- the location is relaxed outdoor beachside and perfect for sunset viewing but drinks are mediocre and food is extremely disappointing for avg near $35-45 per person. We had to return one meal twice. GF steak and seafood options on menu. I agree with those who prefer the Waterfront Restaurant.
Perhaps there is a difference between sitting outside vs inside, or perhaps lunch vs dinner. We sat outside for lunch, the few gf items were mostly salads. The waiter noted the gf items were marked on the menu and had nothing else to say on the topic. The salad I ordered had been made much earlier, consequently, the cucumber slices were dried out, and the greens were starting to wilt. I did not have any problems afterwards. Having eaten at this restaurant for numerous years before knowing that I needed to be gf, I was looking forward to eating there especially after reading the other reviews, but it didn't pan out for me the way I had hoped.
I'm gluten and dairy intolerant and very sensitive. I had scallop dish that is made with coconut milk, clarified with waitress my food issues and she checked with chef. Good meal and no reaction. Only 4 stars because waterfront restaurant was a better meal in anna Maria area.
The chef personally came out & checked with me. He created a special dessert as well. He said he has a family member with Celiac & totally understands. Not only is this a favorite destination, it is great to know they will work to make it happen. The Scallops were fabulous & the sauce was out of this world. Hard to get to because of the traffic but well worth it!
