You can’t beat the restaurant’s location. While we watched pelicans, egrets, and cormorants watch fisherman in the hopes they'd pitch them a bite of lunch, we began our lunch with cups of clam chowder and gumbo-- both terrific-- and moved on to share a Caesar salad and a fish sandwich-- also terrific and large enough to share. I’m sure with... More

Tried City Pier for dinner. It was apparently a busy night as the host came back to the stand and said he would be with us "in a minute." After hearing this three times, we were about ready to leave as we assumed there was a long wait to get in. Then a waitress came out and said we could... More

My family of 7 were seated very quickly on a busy night on AMI. We sat inside, but you still get a great view of the bay. I liked watching the people fishing on the pier while we ate. All of us were happy with our food. I had the Grouper and it was fresh and good. Others had Fried... More

Food was okay. Adult prices seemed to match the area. The children's menu is $4.95 but soft drink is separate at $2.50 and cheese on burger is add'l $1 or about $8.50 for kids' meals this day. We really enjoyed sitting inside along a window. We witnessed several fish be caught by the fishermen. I would go back.

Great place to grab lunch or dinner. People fishing off the pier, plenty of Pelicans and Cranes watching to see what they catch. It's a great spot.

We went here after visiting the pier during the day. Had been another restaurant that the family closed after decades and we didn't know it had been reopened. We were disappointed. The view is fantastic looking out over Tampa Bay to the Skyway Bridge. It does move a bit, it is on the pier. There are people fishing which adds... More

I always stop in for lunch here at least once when I visit. Their seafood is always fresh and prepared nicely. Service is good and prices reasonable. You can watch people fish on the pier outside or enjoy the beautiful bay view with the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in the distance.

We ordered basic food burger and crab cakes. Took a while no sides included different from menu. Ordered onion rings. No crab in cakes, served on a soggy croissant. Burger fried to rubber on and cold bun. Onion rings fell apart. They waitress was nice but food was awful.

One of the best treats about visiting Anna Maria Island is grabbing a bite to eat at the City Pier Restaurant. Whether you choose to dine inside or outside, you have a wonderful view of the water -- and the mystical looking Skyway Bridge in the distance! Walking the pier to the restaurant, it is not uncommon to see cownose... More
