Planned to eat on Old Main, after joining friends at the Bradenton Farmers Market, but, due to crowds, not possible, so our friends suggested Pier 22. It was lovely and delicious! We were seated outside, onlooking the river, on a beautiful day. Our service was prompt and friendly. Our food was great and, though we rarely leave Anna Maria, we... More

As a person with dietary issues and someone who tries to order from the menu based on the description to make the staff's life easier I was shocked when my Mediterranean salad didn't come out as expected. The waitress was very sweet and went to inquire and found out that ingredients change from time to time and she wasn't trained... More

Four of us were at Pier 22 for dinner recently. The food was excellent and the service had all of us talking about it during and after the meal. Our primary server was Harrison. It was wonderful that he was wearing a nametag because I frequently forget the server's name even though they introduce themselves when you first sit down.... More

We tried the top 10 Trip Advisor restaurants this trip and this was one of them. Jared was our waiter and he was awesome!! The location on the water was fantastic and the ambience really relaxing. The food was good...we did mostly small plates. The steak Diane was average and wouldn't recommend it. But the calamari, balsamic chips, pizza, drums,... More

I'm so happy I discovered this gem on the river. Happy hour from 5-7 with great drink and appetizer specials, free wine tasting on Tuesdays and great service from the bartender, Mindy. This had definitely made it into my top list of go-to places for after work any day of the week!

I was really surprised with how arrogant the staff were to me. The food was average for the price. The management and staff are just plain arrogant. Save your money and go to a nice seafood restaurant that respects their customers.

Although the food is average, the view is fabulous and on our latest visit, our waitress, Heather, was fantastic! She was enthusiastic about the view, the weather, the wine, the food and just made the sunshine in general. Lots of fun and made our long lunch special. The day was a busy one but she seemed to stay on top... More
