Ate there, and will return

Eat Here is an Anna Maria Island staple that I make a point of visiting every time I'm on the island. This last visit was the best yet! Menu was refined and well thought out. Seafood and ingredients were very fresh and well prepared. Honestly, we have had several disappointing visits in years past... read more

When we first sat down we weren't sure there would be enough variety for our family of 14, however we were quickly surprised! The kids were able to make their own pizza at the table, the lobster and shrimp tacos were a favorite. All the chef specials were terrific! This is definitely a AMI must go to!!

We loved the food here! We sat outside which was comfy...the waitress was helpful identifying different things to try. The POUTINE FRIES ARE A MUST!!! we are still talking about those!! The kids enjoyed making their own pizza. I felt prices were on par and not exorbitant. We arrived right as they opened at 530 and it filled fast. In... More

First, let me say we're big fans of Sean's other restaurant Beach Bistro. We also were fans of Eat Here when it first opened. Location still great, but, sadly, food and service seem to be bottoming out. We ate there a few nights ago. Very, very overdone fresh fish, which happened on a previous visit. Also, their corn casserole, a... More

To have the last three nights I've been to eat here. Is one of the most inventive and tasty menus that I have experienced in all of my travels. Tonight we ordered a cheeseburger with s sweet bacon relish, and I ordered the number one seller, lobster and shrimp tacos. Tacos were amazingly light and flavorful especially when you squeeze...

I didn't expect to pay $25 for three bites of grouper...but it was some of the best fish I have had. Creme brulee was above average. Quinoa was horrible.

Wow is all I can say for this restaurant! It was the most delicious food we had all week on our vacation. The indoor dining room is pretty small but accommodated our party of 5 (including a child in a wheelchair) well. The menu has a lot of variety with some interesting and Innovative features.

The menu was amazing, from fish to beef! We ate there TWICE while on vacation over the the long 4th of July weekend - can't wait to go back. Get there early, they don't take reservations, but well worth it even if you have to wait!
