We have missed this popular attraction that is typically old Florida and so have you apparently as many locals and tourists have flocked to the City Pier for a bit of calm, serenity and now great casual food! They now offer fresh food, ice cream, beer and wine as well as bait and tackle for all patrons of the recently opened Anna Maria City Pier.
Originally built in 1911, and recently rebuilt in 2020 due to damages sustained by Hurricane Irma in September of 2017. The City Pier Grill and Bait Shop was founded in late 2020 after winning the bid- ding process to operate on the Anna Maria City Pier. The owners who were already business partners in Pine Avenue Bait and Tackle each owned other businesses that fit in perfectly with the vision for a Grill and Bait Shop. Brian Seymour has owned and operated The Anna Maria General Store and Deli on Pine Avenue for the last 10 years, Victor Mattay has owned and operated Dips Ice Cream in the City of Anna Maria for over 20 years and Nicholas Graham has owned and operated Graham Slam Fishing Charters and Graham Slam Bait and Tackle locally for almost 10 years.
The owners have focused on quality food at family friendly prices where 95% of their menu items are made fresh in house by father/son manager Chris Powers and Chef Jacob Powers. They are more than a snack shop, just not quite a full service restaurant due to their outdoor seating. Some initial favorites of their guests include the breakfast sandwiches, homemade sausage gravy and biscuit, Blackened Fish Tacos, Cuban sandwich, and fresh burgers. They offer all kinds of
