Bradenton Gulf Islands - Best Restaurants

Located on Florida’s southwest coast, on the Gulf of Mexico between Tampa and Sarasota, The Bradenton Gulf Islands showcase two islands —Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key.

These restaurants are some of the best places to eat in Bradenton Gulf Islands.

Located on Long Boat Key, our SoCal Radio Wine Dinner at Mar Vista was spectacular, starting with the view. We ate on the covered patio, but they have options for dining under the trees.

Floridays Woodfire Grill & Bar

They have stunning sunset views. The outdoor deck, covered thatched roof, and beachy drinks lend to a Caribbean feel without leaving the United States.
