OUR LOCAL RECOMMENDATIONS

Here are our favorite local restaurants based on personal staff & guest experiences

BREAKFAST - SUNNYSIDE CAFE

(walking distance)
This location is a breakfast favorite for locals. They're walking distance from the resort & have a lot of options for everyone!

BREAKFAST HOUSE

(6 minutes - downtown) 
The chef is the owner &  she has won multiple awards. Her pancakes came in 1st place in a state-wide competition recently. We highly recommend them.  Easy access & parking.

PHILLIPI CREEK OYSTER BAR

(20 minutes South - on the water)
This is a local favorite. Delicious American style fresh seafood with a beautiful creek view. They have outdoor & indoor seating.

ANNA MARIA OYSTER BAR

(8 minutes North - shopping mall area)
This local chain has a couple locations. They have fresh seafood at great prices. If you're craving fresh oysters, this is the place to go. The Anna Maria Island location has great outdoor dock-side seating.

WICKED CANTINA

(3 minutes - towards downtown SRQ)
Modern Mexican & American food with quality food and drinks. Whether you want a quick bite after a long journey or a change from our own Tiki Bar on site, Wicked Cantina is a great choice. One of our favorite lunch spots.

SELVA

(5 minutes - downtown SRQ)
Peruvian derived with a modern setting with great food. You'll typically need reservations though. They have indoor & outdoor seating. Great choice to celebrate or have a date night. Their steaks are excellent.

SPICE STATION

(4 minutes downtown SRQ)
One of our favorites for lunch & diner. This Thai restaurant has a lot of great dishes. They use quality ingredients and a very reasonably price. They're in a sort of plaza which makes their outdoor seating very inviting.
