Gulf Drive Cafe Tiki Hut Life Celebration, from Asheville, NC

On behalf of my brother and sister and family, we would like to say thank you to Laura and the entire staff at Gulf Drive Cafe Tiki Hut for such a superb job with providing such a warm and joyous occasion for our father's Life Celebration after such a difficult and emotional few months of caring for him and working through the hardship of his passing. We are born and bred Bradenton natives - Anna Maria Island folks through and through, and though we his children now live elsewhere, we could not imagine a more fitting place to gather with family and friends to share stories, laugh, cry, and remember and celebrate our father's life. The beach setting was perfect, and the atmosphere was calm and uplifting. The food was fantastic and a big hit with everyone who showed up. Laura and her staff could not have done a better job of helping us to do what we needed to do, and though over a hundred people showed up, the event went off without a hitch. She was a professional from the moment I met her. If there was any moment when we needed something we were immediately taken care of. I highly recommend to anyone to consider them for your next event, whatever the occasion. Top notch! Thank you Laura and the entire Gulf Drive Cafe team for such a wonderful and memorable evening.
