Top class cuisine on a middle class budget

Inside or out? That's your first choice when you get to eat here. We usually choose "out" although it can get a bit hot for us Brits, even with the fans, but this time we chose "in" although the only available seating was on a long communal table.

Extremely expensive for what you get. Our dinner was well made, flavors were wonderful. The service was fair. Poor seating for a family. Not really all that impressed.

We came to the restaurant late, 8:30 pm, party of four. As some had wanted only a light meal, or desert, we had a mix of items ordered. Our order of grilled shrimp over mashed potatoes, took over an hour and only after staring down our waiter, did he think to check on what had happened, or not happened, in... More

My husband and I went here for our wedding anniversary, the food was good, my husband had the surf and turf and I had the Mahi Mahi special, also the creme brûlée for pudding. All food was tasty and the host Chris was very accommodating to our needs, just didn't feel much of an atmosphere in the restaurant.

Ate dinner 1 night. Amazing food and great service. Fairly priced. Had the pot roast. Would definitely return. Cute inside. Don't let the strip mall throw you.

My wife and I had dinner on May 7th around 8pm and only had to wait about 5 minutes to get a table inside. The server was over to welcome us and take our drink order within 5 minutes of sitting. I had beer and my wife had Wine. We chose to split the "serendipitous" salad, which was very good... More

We visit every May and Eat Here is always one of our dinning stops. Less pricy then it's big sister, Beach Bistro, Eat Here will never dissapoint you. If you choose to go on a holiday weekend, go early as they do not take reservations. Also, be aware they do not have a full liquor bar but do have a... More

As I've read on a previous review this is a casual yet sophisticated dining experience, Super atmosphere, super friendly service and not only great value for money dining but really AWESOME cooking and dishes are served in a fun creative way. Don't let the fact it's not beach front or the exterior of the restaurant put you off. This place... More

This was the best casual restaurant we have eaten at on Anna Maria. The location isn't as great as sitting beachfront but the food is so terrific, you won't care. Fresh, fresh, fresh. The St Louis ribs were amazing. The shrimp was perfect. The kale sale was such a nice change from the typically bad salads many Florida restaurants serve.... More

This place is so amazing that we ended up here 3 nights out of our 5 day vacation! Seafood so fresh and exquisitely prepared. Our server Mary made the experience one we'll remember forever! She was wonderful and thought of every detail. Can't wait to return for more delicious key lime cheesecake!
