The Waterfront Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We have enjoyed the Waterfront restaurant for many years. Our son and his new bride chose the Waterfront for their wedding dinner. We have celebrated anniversaries and birthdays there with friends and have always has great food and wonderful service. It is one of the few restaurants on AMI that will take reservations which is necessary during season.
This was the one place that I made a reservation at on Anna Maria Island and we were so glad that I did. We dined on the 5th and were fortunate to have Al as our server. Al was outstanding throughout our stay and he is a real asset to this gem of a restaurant. Once we ordered an adult beverage for my wife we started with the soup of the day and tropicale salad. Both were very good. Entrees were the risotto julienne and roast beef. I also ordered the truffle tots for us to pick on. Both entrees and those addicting tots were perfect plates. We did not make it to dessert, but will certainly be back in the future. Make that reservation and do arrive on the earlier end of service so that you can sit outside to enjoy the whole experience.
Menu items are outstanding cuisine and good value. Calamari are the "world's best". Server brought us one free Key Lime Pie dessert for our birthday girl. She overheard us talking about a birthday. The Waterfront sincerely cares about it's customers. Great Hospitality!
The Waterfront Restaurant was the Gem I've been searching for. We've been looking for a restaurant that serves craft cocktails and farm to table like food for quite sometime near the area. I'm glad we found it...This restaurant doesn't disappoint. Every course we had was Amazing!!
We arrived on time and the table was not ready even though we has a reservation . We waited in the bar and decided to have a cocktail. Surprisingly the bartender was not friendly borderline surly and appeared to be in a bad mood (and needs better training in customer service). Management comp'ed us an appetizer for the wait and it was delicious and the rest of the food was quite well done. The surly bartender was the main negative.
Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with this visit. We had been ther about 1 month ago and it was great. Our server was cold, not friendly, no smiles, could have cared less! Our drinks were took a while to come, my husband sent his dinner special back after struggling with it for a while(he didn't want to fuss, meat was tough). We have always enjoyed it there, but it'll be a while before we return!
Only thing incorrect during the evening was ordering a vodka martini straight up, and having it arrive in a champagne glass. Really took the edge off the $9.00 drink. Also how about plating salads on a cold plate? Also would enhance the taste.

As regular visitors to the Waterfront, we always find everything just as we expect. Every time, every meal , always top quality. The friendly ,knowledgable waiters always ensure the dining experience is a memorable one. Eating at the bar is equally entertaining, watching the bartender create cocktails.
Well done Waterfront.
We always go to the Waterfront when on AMI. It's always great with excellent service. The only thing keeping it back for us from getting full stars is the lack of any vegetable option for small children. Something as simple as raw broccoli or carrots would do the trick, but in this day and age when even McDonalds has figured out simple healthy eating for children, I would think The Waterfront could find a way to make it work.
We vacation at Anna Maria Island every year and never miss a dinner at the Waterfront.
This year we met friends and totally enjoyed
each entree, Michelle our server.
Topped off by wonderful desserts.
Mine😎Ice cream, espresso, and Frangelica!
