Bradenton Beach recommendations

We will be going to Bradenton Beach in a couple of weeks (a few days) and would like recommendations for that area.
It will probably be 5-6 of us, and I will be paying, so something in the reasonable category would be appreciated.
Food type not critical, we eat a wide variety.

Thanks in advance

  1. "SIGN OF THE MERMAID" in Anna Marie is the best around, unless you want to go expensive which then becomes "BEACH BISTRO"......
    Let us know how you make out...........

      See if you can spend a little more and go to Beach Bistro - it's one of the best restaurants in the state!

    2. The Cafe on the Beach, where Manatee Ave. dead ends, has surprisingly good food. The fried grouper sandwich on a roll with fries for about 10 bucks is more that most need to eat. Their all-you-can-eat daily pancake and sausage breakfast is legendary; they have sold 2 million Jimmy Dean sausage patties in 14 years.
      Rotten Ralphs for caribbean style dockside grazing and beverages, with delightful waitresses and beautiful boats all around, is a fun afternoon.

      1. Check out Star Fish Co. in Cortez. Sit on their dock and have a fried grouper sandwich.

          And their fish chowder for 3 bucks is delicious.
