Great food, fast service

We are here in April 2015 with my family. There were several groups waiting outside when we arrived so we were worried that we would have to wait for ages but we were seated within minutes. The waitress was extremely pleasant and efficient and our food was all delivered promptly and without issue... read 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!

This is one of our favourite restaurants on AMI. The ambience is casual yet sophisticated at the same time. The menu is designed to be shared and that is exactly what we always do. What is unique is the eclectic serving style of the dishes which are in complete harmony with the restaurants philosophy. We ate here twice during our... More

We visited the eat here restaurant upon recommendation of friends. The atmosphere is casual, and the wait staff is very attentive and nice, but I found it all a bit over the top in the way they describe their cuisine to the words the wait staff use. It almost looks like they are trying to be something that they are... More

We arrived on a busy Thursday (April 2) evening around 7:00. The host was very friendly, and offered a complimentary glass of wine for my wife and I while we waited. After 20 minutes or so, we were seated. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable. The wine list is impressive, someone put a lot of thought into it. But,... More

This was our second time at Eat Here and we returned with much anticipation after a visit in 2014. We waited only 20 minutes or so for a table, but something was definitely off this time. The mussels were large, but not as flavorful as in the past, and the poutine was just sort of thrown together...which yes, I know... More

After trying an number of other restaurants the only place that could take us was this restaurant. The foods was way over priced for what we got and the fries were like the burnt bits that were left in the fryer! I had the swordfish Special. Nothing special but the price. After spending two weeks in Florida this was by... More

And not good attitude - the staff treat you like they are paying you to serve them. The food is just fine but it's nothing special. I have been here three times - always hoping it gets better, but it actually is worse this time around. We won't go back.
