The atmosphere is relaxed yet refined and the attire is resort casual. Dine al fresco on the third floor terrace and enjoy the amazing sunsets while relaxing with tropical breezes and sounds of the surf. Enjoy expertly prepared cuisine at reasonable prices. Chef Keith Daum, who has overseen the best kitchens in Sarasota, Longboat key, and St. Armands, delivers his most outstanding menu yet, including appetizer sampler platters, lobster bisque, seafood gumbo, and specialty salads. For entrees try one our hand cut Filet Mignon s or Sirloin steaks. Do you prefer seafood? We have that covered as well, with a choice of four fresh fish daily. Try the potato crusted grouper or  Mahi-Mahi; or perhaps you would enjoy our mouth watering seafood risotto. Veal, pasta, and chicken dishes are also on the menu. Don t forget to save room for dessert: our home made desserts are the perfect finish to a great meal. Come and see the new spot Anna Maria, Bradenton, Longboat Key, and Sarasota is talking about…

“Great Food and a Wonderful View”

Was in town for a night and decided to eat here at the recommednation of my friend who lives locally. Coming from SF Bay Area, my expectations on food and grape juice run pretty high. They had a lovely Duckhorn Merlot on their list, which I was absolutely not expecting. A rare find outside of CA and priced well in…

“Just keeps getting better……”Everything at the Bistro meets our expectations! Ambience, service and a menu with a wide selection of fresh seafood entrees.

 “Good Quality Restaurant”One of the places we visit when on holiday from the UK and I am pleased to say it still has the good food and service we remember from previous visits. When others on the island have forgotten what used to make them special and have lowered their standards The Bridge seems to be maintaining theirs. Congratulations and keep it up.
 “Yummy Food Wonderful Service”
Reviewed November 29, 2014 Gregory was a wonderful server. He was a pleasure. The food was amazing. We tried the fritters and bisque for starters. Recommend them both. My hub has surf and turf. I had the Key Grass Grouper! The grouper was amazing the filet was good. We will definitely go back. Highly recommend asking for Gregory!
 One of the best I’ve ever had Reviewed May 19, 2014 I visited Bridge Street Bistro recently and I am so glad that I did. Friends and I started at the bar for some delicious cocktails before we were seated for dinner. The wine list was great and the bartender, Kit, recommended some of his original drink recipes, and WOW were they amazing. Kit was so kind and much fun to talk to while we waited for all of our party to join us for dinner. We were seated on the beautiful balcony with a perfect view of the Gulf. The seafood platter was one of the best appetizers we ever had. I enjoyed the grassy key grouper for dinner and it was flawless, I swear they pulled the fish out of the Gulf as I ordered it. Everyone at our table licked our plates clean. I only wish I could have fit dessert in too, as I’m sure it would have been equally as amazing. I can’t wait to go back to Anna Maria Island so I can bring more people to experience this perfect place.
A Perfect Setting! Reviewed May 5, 2014 When visiting Anna Maria Island, the Bridge Street Bistro is a must for dinner. We were a group of 12 celebrating my sister’s 60th birthday. We couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate. Our table was outside on the upper deck facing the water for the most beautiful view of the setting sun. Picture perfect. Our waiter did a great job taking care of our large group. The service was excellent. The food could not have been better. I had the Mahi – Mahi and my husband had the grouper. All in all it was a very enjoyable evening. You won’t be disappointed. It’s probably best to make a reservation a head especially is you want outside seating.
Superb Reviewed April 6, 2014 not been here for a couple of years what can I say other than it was even better than our previous visit

the service and quality of food was excellent our waiter a guy called Scott was the difference in between making this a 5 and 4 star review
from the moment we arrived to the time we left has was attentive informative and friendly
the added value of being able to watch a sunset out the window was another plus
great visit highly recommended

A Pleasure to dine here Reviewed March 21, 2014 A 3rd floor location with an elevator in the centre of Bradenton Beach, this establishment has both an excellent cuisine and attentive staff. We dined here twice during our stay at a nearby resort and thoroughly enjoyed our dinners on both occasions.
From their savoury appetizers to fresh and finely prepared entrees and ending with some excellent desserts left us little doubt that this is one of the best places to dine in the area.

This is not your parents Anna Maria Reviewed September 20, 2011 person found this review helpful Wow. I thought I was in the wrong place at first. There is a very happening upscale beach bar down stairs, so I asked and was told, yes I was in the right place. I went up to the third floor and was amazed. Very elegant, excellent staff; Wow is the best way to sum it all up. I took my servers suggestions..Carpaccio in truffle oil, beet and goat cheese salad and the main course of Grouper with a Key Lime Buerre Blanc sauce. An incredible taste, that they even paired a wine with that was amazing. Then I find out they are not locals, they are from St. Armands, that solved the mystery. If you want all St. Armands has to offer without the pretentiousness of being there, this is the place. A staff that is paying attention without being pushy. An amazing location, huge windows that look out over the gulf. And just tremendous cuisine at a steal of a price. I will be back as often as my travels allow. Visited September 2011

Great Sunset & great food Reviewed September 13, 2011

We had a very nice time here. The food was very good as was the service. My husband loved the gumbo so much he had it at the bar for lunch the next day. The owner was always there and very involved. Visited August 2011
