We are getting married in Oct/Nov (we can't decide!) and currently we are looking at Mattisons Riverside and the Manatee Riverhouse. They both offer excellent prices for such a beautiful location on the Manatee River. And just so you know, both locations are right across from Palmetto and Mattisons is just a few mins from the 41 bridge. The other great thing about Mattisons is they are a full catering company, so they can do your cake as well and I don't believe they charge rental fees (which Manatee Riverhouse does). Both venues have websites and are very fast in getting back to you with an information request (i got mine the very next day).
My husband and I love to go to Manatee Riverhouse - I would totally check them out.
