The Best Takeout and Delivery on Anna Maria Island

When you’re vacationing on Anna Maria Island, one of the most exciting things to do is explore the local cuisine. Many of the restaurants take advantage of the fresh seafood available just off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, making for a unique taste of Florida’s food scene. However, sometimes you don’t feel like dragging the whole family out to a restaurant. It can be much more convenient to get takeout from an eatery or pick up some groceries and make a meal for yourself.

Luckily, you’ve got multiple options for take out on Anna Maria Island, as well as quick and easy grocery access.

Groceries laying out ready to be put away

Grocery Stores

While it can be nice to get some restaurant fare while you’re away, it can also get expensive. One easy way to cut costs while still getting some delicious food is by grocery shopping. There are two convenient locations to take advantage of grocery pickup on Anna Maria Island.

Publix Super Market at Holmes Beach

Located in Holmes Beach in the middle of Anna Maria Island, Publix Super Market has everything you need for a great dinner or for keeping snacks in your rental. Check their website for the weekly ad and digital coupons to make your budget go even further! You can choose to get some ingredients to make your own dinner or pick up a ready-made sub from the deli. You can either head to Publix yourself for an in-store or curbside pickup, or you can have your groceries delivered to your rental thanks to Instacart!

Publix Super Market is located at 3900 East Bay Drive in Holmes Beach.

Walmart Grocery Pickup

Another convenient option for all of your grocery needs is the local Walmart. Whether you need snacks for movie night, ingredients for breakfast, or items for the beach such as sunscreen or a hat, you can easily place an order through Walmart’s website or smartphone app. Then, simply head over to Walmart at a time you select, and the friendly staff will bring your order right out to your car! It’s never been faster or more convenient to get your groceries, and if it happens that the store is out of something you request, they will swap it out for a similar item. If the item you receive costs more than what you requested, you don’t have to pay the difference!
