Try our Drink of the Month: Shell Yeah!

In May, we started recycling our oyster shells. Thousands of oysters are consumed at local seafood restaurants in Florida like Anna Maria Oyster Bar. When oyster shells are disposed of, they pile up in our ever-growing landfills. Recycling the shells helps filter the water and create the next generation of harvestable oysters in 3-5 years! But how? Steps to Oyster Recycling: Oysters are consumed at seafood restaurants and placed in the special bins provided by Waste Pro. The shells are picked up every week. The recycled shells are turned into “oyster modules” created for habitat restoration projects. The habitat begins

Happy National Catfish Month!

August is here and so is National Catfish Month! Around the country, catfish finds its way onto menus and dinner tables providing a very tasty meal, especially here in the South. But why is there a national commemorative month for it? National Catfish Month started in 1984 when President Ronald Reagan announced to the nation that there would indeed be a national month dedicated just to catfish.

More Time for Pier Time

A wise man once said, “if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense,” and with that advice in mind, we’ve made the decision to discontinue daily Breakfast and Weekend Brunch service at the Pier location. Looks like no more #SundayFunday breakfast shifts from me on the Pier. Unfortunately, the response to offering a morning menu at the Pier hasn’t been what we’d hoped. After more than 3 years serving breakfast and brunch, we’ll shift our hours back to better serve the Island demographics of both locals and visitors. Who’da thunk that people enjoying watching our gorgeous sunsets while eating
