Meet our Fabulous Landside Manager, Ruthie Ellis!

Ruthie is almost halfway into her 6th year as a manager at Landside. “I enjoy working at Anna Maria Oyster Bar because we serve fantastic food and drinks at a very reasonable price, but, I mostly love talking to all of our guests and I especially love hearing about how much they appreciate our great food and service. I’ve known John and Amanda Horne for many years, and. I love how much they give back to our community, and allow the staff to be a part of it,” said Ruthie.
