If you have a need for some comfort food with a twist, you need to Eat Here. From good old fashion pot roast to a four cheese grilled cheese sandwich, this place doesn't disappoint. It also has seating where you can share a table and meet new friends if you feel so inclined. The wine list is impressive as well... More

We have been fans of Eat Here since it first opened in Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. Took some friends there earlier this week and all 4 of us enjoyed great dinners. I had their unusual deep fried ribs! Yes, like everything else that's fried, they were delicious. Others had shrimp and fresh fish. The menu is eclectic, the... More

We enjoyed eating here and the food was delicious, however it is very expensive...$11.00 for a grilled cheese. It was made with carmelized onions, so not your average grilled cheese, but still rather expensive. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable.

We have eaten here before and really enjoyed it. This time I was disappointed. My Mahi was overcooked and a very small portion, however, the corn casserole which accompanied the fish was absolutely delicious. Service was ok but the small portion and the overcooking of the main event (Mahi) was definitely a turn off--it was not enough food for my... More

the prices are high for the portion sizes. Three shrimp for 17.00, no matter how fresh the shrimp is, is just too high a price to pay.

While on a business trip, I visited my brother and sister-in-law who live locally in Bradenton, and they took me to this humorously named restaurant. I have two substantive complaints. First, while I have no problem at all with the rustic, laid back and casual atmosphere, the prices are more in line with a white linen fine dining restaurant, but... More

This is a small eatery that has excellent, interesting food. The portions are small and the prices high. $10.00 for French onion soup is a bit much and the taste was average. There is nothing special here

One of the best if not the best restaurants on the island. Food is always served hot. Fish is fresh and well prepared. Meatloaf and pot-roast are excellent. Really any entree is great. Recommend a visit. Try the wedge salad, is one of the best in the area.

Ate here last year and had to come back. Great food, fun service and love the casual atmosphere. My husband had fond memories of the meatloaf from last year and had to have it again. I'd recommend the lobster/shrimp tacos - delicious. And finish with the key lime cheesecake for sure!!
