Founded in late 2020, the Anna Maria City Pier Grill and Bait Shop emerged as a winning contender to operate on the Anna Maria City Pier. The establishment is the brainchild of dedicated business partners, each with successful ventures on Anna Maria Island. Brian Seymour, owner of The Anna Maria General Store and Deli, Victor Mattay, proprietor of Dips Ice Cream, and Nicholas Graham, operator of Graham Slam Fishing Charters and Bait and Tackle, united their expertise to bring a fresh and family-friendly dining experience to the pier.
