Palmetto,Close to Bradenton
We are moving to Palmetto and the restaurant choices look bleak.Any suggestions? Suggestions in Bradenton area that aren't too far from Palmetto would be appreciated too.
once a month i visited a relative in prison in palmetto for a year recently, had to travel away to find something to eat....bleak is an understatement, im from east coast so i cant help much sorry
In nearby Ellenton there is Hickory Hollow with good barbeque and, strangely, excellent blackened fish. It is on Rte. 301.
Also, Anna Maria Oyster House in Ellenton. Very good everything and very friendly.
Alvarez on 41 is the best Mexican in Palmetto. Up 301 is Hickory Hollow which was mentioned - good crab cakes, also. (owners are from Maryland). Woody's River Roo, behind the Walgreens on the River, is a popular spot. Anna Maria Oyster Bar and the Crab Shack II are popular. Remember you are minutes across the Green bridge from many options in Bradenton. You will get familiar with Manatee and Cortez Avenues, and the Anna Maria Island offerings.
For tablecloth dinners and wine lists, I go to Sarasota - less than 1/2 hour.
We like Riverhouse Reef in Palmatto very much. Huge selection and very reasonable on the water.
