A definite must-eat! These burgers are a classic - just like the place that sells them. This place is the "meat and potatoes" of AMI. This is the true island flavor.... funky little shack with great greasy burgers and beers. It is literally a TINY shack -- chicken wire as windows, cement-sandy floors and about 4 picnic tables crowded into a little area also considered the bar. And yes, doggies are allowed in and around the premises. This place is always slammed. If you're a bit claustrophobic not to worry, there are more picnic tables outside.

A unspoiled sliver between the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, Leffis Key sits between Bradenton Beach and Longboat Key. Although the entire trail system is less than a mile, it’s fun to explore. The trails offer great views of the bay from observation decks hidden away in the mangroves—you feel like you’re peeking out of tunnels! Climb to the top of the spoil piles for a sweeping view of the bay and ocean. Leffis Key is 3.2 miles south of the Anna Maria Causeway on East Bay Drive, just south of Bradenton Beach. The park entrance is on the left, across from the beach on Anna Maria Island..
Anna Maria Island Historical Museum
402 Pine Avenue, Anna Maria, Anna Maria Island, FLhttp://amihs.org(941) 778-0492The Museum is a small building with photographs and memorabilia of Anna Maria Island. The most striking aspects of it were the aerial views in terms of seeing the development of the island from the 1950's to now and talking with the docent who was staffing the Museum on a Saturday afternoon. Like every place else Anna Maria is a product of geography and particular people who make it special. We learned a lot about present day Anna Maria from the docent.
