Great evening

Tried Eat Here for the 1st time. Awesome experience. Great beer selection, many dishes for sharing. I had the Seafood stew, best meal in 2 weeks on the island. The service was also very enjoyable. We'll be back soon.

We recently tried "eat here" for the first time . No reservations so we made sure we were there by 6:30 on a Thursday night. We had a cozy table and an excellent server . My husband does not like beets but agreed we should try some of the unusual items on the menu . The beets are cooked in... More

This little place has a fun menu and good food. The setting wasn't much - a strip mall storefront - but vibe was good, with lots of happy diners. We waited just 15 minutes for a table, but a complimentary glass of house white and good company passed the time quickly. I had gulf oysters for starters and poached black... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the food and the service is excellent. Doug is a great server - had him a few times. Recently, Eat Here has decided not to provide reservations...instead offering 'free wine' while you wait. I'd rather not wait. Tonight we waited 20+ minutes standing next to the bathrooms, all for one plastic... More

We all enjoyed a delicious dinner here on a rainy night on the island. We were lucky to get walk in seating and everyone in our group really enjoyed their meals. The booth seating was cozy and just perfect, and our server, Douglas, was attentive but not overbearing. The overall vibe is casual and upbeat. I don't know if I... More

We have been eating here 4-5 times a trip during the season since they opened. At first, it was a welcome break from the usual standard island fare of grouper sandwiches and fish tacos. There are quirky dishes for the area like poutine (very good), bruschetta (also great), deep fried beet cones (never good, the beets are always massively under... More

We enjoyed this spot and our seasoned waiter Doug. Eat Here can be busy and crowded, so we had a short wait before being seated in a cozy booth in the main area to the right. Around to the left is another area which appeared to have pizza parlor ambience and the large pizza oven to go with it. The... More

A nice menu with some well prepared dishes you don't find on a chain restaurant menu. This restaurant is a cut above most AMI restaurants in its menu selection, food preparation and meal presentation. The ambience is nothing to write home about but everything else suggests a go to place for that special night out. Food and service were very... More

We were skeptical about this restaurant because of its out of the way location except we read the reviews in the local paper - so we decided to try it. We were delighted we did, the food was excellent, service excellent and the beer and wine choices delicious. You won't go wrong trying this restaurant.

My husband and I shared a few tapas. The selection is unique and the value true. We left stuffed and satisfied. Would visit again!
