Queen of the South

Hunting & Gathering

BY BRITTANY MATTIE SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING THURSDAY MAY 9, 2019

Dirty south cuisine with elevated flare may be just what the hubby ordered for Mom this weekend. Combining the gritty essence and fresh seafood of the South with the sophistication of quality bubbly and seaside-modern design, you have yourself Eliza Ann’s Coastal Kitchen. Located in Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club, the restaurant will be offering moms a complimentary glass of house wine, beer or bubbly with the purchase of a dinner entrée on Mother’s Day. 

Treat your matriarch to signature Southern dishes with a coastal twist. From the Raw Bar, find Wood Grilled Oysters with parmesan cheese, garlic vinegar and chives, or Sam’s Ceviche with cola hot sauce, lime, avocado and yucca chips. If the fam is spending the day out on the boat and Dad happens to reel in a big one from the Bay, take advantage of Eliza Ann’s ‘Catch & Cook’ offering—you bring the catch and let the kitchen do their thing. The AMI Fish Chowder, She-Crab Soup and chef’s daily selection of Gumbo du Jour with andouille, pickled okra and rice are sensational soup options, while salads like the Fried Oyster Green Goddess with avocado, bacon, fennel pollen and hard boiled egg may be right up Mom’s alley.

From daily catches, hushpuppies, shrimp scampi, jumbo lump crab cakes, Cortez fish tacos, smoked fish dip, stewed greens, live oak-grilled steaks and Old Bay french fries—Sunday’s dinner will be nothing short of smoke, spice and soul. Top off the holiday with that free glass of brew or sparkly and the queen will be feeling that heartfelt Southern hospitality.


Sunday, May 12 from 5:00pm to 10:00pm.

Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club, 5325 Marina Dr., Holmes Beach, 941-238-6264. Reservations are recommended.
