Often Imitated Never Duplicated

WELCOME TO
ANNA’S RESTAURANT & DELIS
Established 1971

Your internet ‘surfing’ has brought you to the Home of the World Famous Surfer Sandwich!

Anna’s Restaurant & Delis have been a Siesta Key/Sarasota tradition since 1971. We are the oldest eatery on Siesta Key and known for our huge ‘Famous Specialty Sandwiches’, Anna’s Famous Sauce, as well as for serving the highest quality meats, cheeses and daily fresh made salads. The uniqueness of our bread combined with our generous portions, add the Anna’s Famous Sauce, and you will understand why the local clientele as well as people from all over the world (literally) will attest that Anna’s consistently serves the BEST sandwiches! As our motto states, we are “Often Imitated, Never Duplicated”. 

We have continuously received the ‘Reader’s Choice Award’ for Best Sandwich in the Herald Tribune; ‘Best of the Best’ in the sandwich category for the Surfer sandwich in SRQ Magazine and ‘Best Sandwich’ in Sarasota Magazine as voted on by our peers and guests. 

Our signature Surfer sandwich consists of ham, turkey, Swiss cheese, cucumber slices stacked high on our unique ‘canned bread’. We’re honored to say that it is frequently referred to as the ‘sandwich that made Siesta Key famous’! 

We invite you to come in and experience why Anna’s Deli continues to be a Siesta Key, Sarasota and now Bradenton tradition for over 45 years! Thank you for ‘surfing’ our website!
