This decades-old favorite is one of the few restaurants in Tampa Bay where you can walk down a set of steps and find yourself sloshing through the teal gulf. Yes, it's plopped right there on the north strand of Anna Maria Island and still serving up tasty seafood and killer pina coladas. You can dine inside (but save that as a refuge if you get caught in a wicked thunderstorm in the summer) or outside on one of their open or covered decks. Whether you're coming off the sand for a quick bite of lunch or making a date night out of it with dinner and live music, this quintessential Tampa Bay experience won't disappoint.
