I've read every post here, Fodors, TripAdvisor, Yelp. I know this is not exactly the right term but I feel "mission creep" has set in.
We have vacationed here four years I think, always in the summer, out of "season". Off the top of my head the places we have eaten at and would consider returning to: Euphemia Haye, Anna Maria Oyster Bar, Columbia, Lazy Lobster, The Sandbar, Bern's (hellish drive with construction). The only place we really have to go to is Columbia because even though the food isn't that great we always have a great time, the Sangria I suppose..
So here is the deal. I need for Longboat and Veggo to each give me a six night itinerary. 2-3 fine dining, 2-3 upscale casual, 2-3 fried seafood joints.
Thank you for your cooperation. : )
