I have enjoyed going there for many years. The place is cozy with old world charm. I cannot think of a time when I had bad service. It most certainly beats having breakfast or lunch on the mainland. It s open, breezy, and you never know when you ll catch a glimpse of a dolphin or manta ray.
Very Disappointing when it comes to service.. Food is very good, to bad that such a good chef has to be surrounded by terrible service... I asked where the bathrooms were and had a VERY RUDE Remark by a sever named ROBIN, Do not get in her Station!!! to bad, otherwise very nice place... The management should really take a look at the customer service aspect, ie servers, if they ever want to grow into a full fledged (nice) restaurant.
Went on our annual trip to have a another great meal so we thought. Our server was Susan and there were 8 of us and when we told her seperat checks she gave us a eye and head roll that would give the exorcist a run for her money.
But on the plus side the food was as good as ever. But will make sure that we don't ever sit at her table again. We did say something on our way out and the response was that's Susan for ya. We suggested that maby she find another place to work.We were told good luck !!
We've visited several times over the past few years. Go during the week on the off hours. The service, food, attitudes; always great! This is how 'Old Florida' should be, to me. I'll be there on every visit from Indiana.
It's a reason to go the island, but one must get there before 9am to avoid the lines and the limited parking spaces. I suppose the waiters see so many tourists per day, that they needn't bend over backwards.
Still a fun place though.
spent a week on the island and had breakfast at the rod &reel everyday. simply put its just a great place to hang out. friendly staff good food and great stories from the locals and the old guys who spend the winter monthes there. if your going to be on anna maria island you have to go to the rod & reel pier just to say you have been there. next year i'm planning for 2 wks.
