Renovated BeachHouse unveiled

Anna Maria Island Sun News Story



BeachHouse owner Ed Chiles cut the ceremonial ribbon Thursday evening in celebration of the recently completed renovations made to the fine dining establishment located along the waterfront in Bradenton Beach.

During an emotional speech that proceeded the ribbon cutting, Chiles praised and thanked his staff, thanked city officials, provided a brief history of the 20 year-old restaurant and discussed the newly renovated “million-dollar kitchen.”

“You are now looking at phase one of the renewal,” he said.

When discussing future plans for a second story, open-air dining area and patio that will feature an upstairs kitchen of its own, Chiles said, “It’s going to make this a world class iconic building of the first order.”

Chiles recognized Bradenton Beach Mayor Bill Shearon and made a passing reference to a pair of lawsuits that involve the restaurant ownership group, the city and the mayor.

“The mayor is my friend. We’ve got a little tussle going on, but we’re going to get over that,” Chiles said.

The celebration included complimentary hors d'oeuvres, wine and beer.
