Who doesn’t crave a great burger? You may be scouting for the greatest seafood, but there are those days when nothing stifles your craving for a juicy burger. Here are are few to choose from On your Anna Maria Island Vacation.

The original Duffy’s was the beginning of great burgers. On the Island since 1058, this family owned and operated establishment

Duffy’s on Maria Drive

is a landmark to all who visit. Become part of the family the minute you walk in the door. This charming sport bar has moved and remodeled over the years, never losing the welcome home vibe. Serving a wide variety of burgers and sandwiches, adding ice cold beer to the menu, make this affordable burger joint a great place to visit. Closed Tuesdays. Come and see why USA Today calls it “an institution, and one of the top 10 on the Hamburger Heaven list.

Skinny’s Place


Skinny’s is located across from the Surf shop at the Manatee Public Beach, offers burgers and beer in a casual, cash only pub. With outdoor seating options and rustic design this beachy burger joint has a long standing Island competition for Best Burger with Duffy’s.  Frosted mugs making the beer ice cold and specialty burgers all over 1/4 lb, make it a viable competitor. Menu options for Hot Dogs and other kid friendly choices.


Harry’s Grill and Bistro on Gulf drive, is not burger specific, but has the largest burger on the Island. Weighing in at 1 pound, you better have a big appetite. (Save with the Thursday Burger deal.) They also have a 1/2 pound burger on Ciabatta bread with savory fries and the most amazing version of Island Cole Slaw, or go light with a couple sliders. Come for the Burger, stay for the entertainment and daily specials.


Minnies Cafe in Holmes beach~ One of the best kept secrets for home cook food. Enjoy a well rounded menu but be aware, it is cash only, breakfast and lunch only. Join the Family and a great community of locals and vacationers combined. This is a well loved diner with no website. So make your way to 5360 Gulf Dr. Holmes Beach FL  for down to earth home cooked meals and baked goods, like your Grandma used to make.


Anna Maria Island Beach Cafe~ offers a tasty variety of beach side food. For a beach cafe you are going to be amazed. No need to get shoes on, when you can get everything you need at the Manatee Public beach. Get your classic 1/2 lb. burger and fries or opt for a Veggie Burger and Eggplant fries. You won’t be sorry. Stay for live music and sunset.

Every location is on the free trolley route, so enjoy a beer with no fear, and find your next Anna Maria Island Vacation Rental at BeachRentals.Mobi
