We’ve been to AMI a few times on holiday and will always return. What we love about the Rod and Reel is the laid back, unfussy atmosphere. Service is brisk and friendly and the views are amazing. We try to order the specials which are very fresh cos our daughter ordered fish and chips and the fish was ‘previously frozen ‘! Why when it’s leaping out of the gulf at you?! So that’s a .

Overall great place for dinner! Portions were large. I had the mahi mahi. My daughters ( 14 years & 9 years) had scallops and fish & chips. Husband had the seafood combo. My mom had the crabcakes. Everything was pretty good except the crabcakes were a bit disappointing. We are used used lump crab meat and seemed to be more filling than crab meat. The view was great. Loved seeing the pelicans n people fishing but it was raining so we couldn't hang longer in the pier. My husband n daughter went back to the pier early morning and saw a manatee swim by!

It's a small place so either go early or there will be a wait for dinner.

We are on a week long vacation on longboat key and after discovering this place we drive here everyday since ! Yes it’s small and a little crowded and busy but it’s vacation relax and enjoy the views ! Can’t get more beach feel then this ! The fish is so fresh ! I have tried other restaurants around and the grouper here is by far the best . And the view is amazing while you wait and eat !

Our waitress handled our group of 13 with ease. She gets an A! The food, however, was average... bland breakfast sandwich, boring french toast, and just ok pancakes. Glad we only had to wait 5 minutes.

The grouper is so fresh that it felt like it was just caught for my plate. I wish that they would atleast tell you the market price before ordering but then again it was worth the price!
