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

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.

The menu was small, but there was something for everyone. They have a veal meatloaf which was outstanding, as was the Carolina rainbow trout with capers and lemon dill sauce. Food was so good, we went back the second night and were not disappointed. The Chef wants every meal to get to the table hot, so meals are delivered as... More

Eat Here offers a creative menu, in an attractive bustling restaurant. It caters to all tastes and provides both indoor and outside seating( although outside is almost part of the parking lot). If you have to wait for a table, they provide complimentary wine. There are lots of restaurants to choose from on the island but we always go here... More

This is overrated, overpriced and not really as you would imagine AMI should be. Outside seating on a Parking lot, inside is loud and crowded. Food is ok, just overpriced due to the name on the door.

Yum!!! Best lobster and shrimp tacos I have ever eaten. Not a lot of ambiance, but a lot of yummy food. Big step up from most spots on the island.
