Our party of four adults and two children all agree that this is the most unfriendly restaurant we've been to on Anna Maria. The food served was "OK" but served at different times so the children had finished before the adults started! This apparently due to the fact they have two kitchens. The children say this was the "lamest" children's... More

For Starters, we had the tempura beets which we enjoyed very much. The goat cheese dipping sauce that went with them was delicious. The seafood tacos were great too. The only thing we didn't love was the chef's choice pizza. It was loaded up with too many ingredients that didn't work together IMO. The shrimp on the pizza were not... More

The food was good, prices are a bit high, but the experience was ruined by the position of tables literally jammed into a space too small. We could hear every word spoken at 3 tables next to us without trying, thus we were felt inhibited to engage in any meaningful conversation at our own table knowing it would be overheard.

We had a party of 7 and they accommodated us with no reservations. They are on Opentable and reservations were not available. But they do allow you to come without reservations. Several had the seafood special. I had the wood fire pizza. It was great! Salads and drinks great too! Friendly staff. I would go back!

We have tried many eateries in the Bradenton-Anna Maria area and Eat Here is one of our most favorite. This is not a typical sit down restaurant with bread, salad etc. My wife and I like to try 2 or 3 entries and share. The Filet is the best I have ever had. At 8oz we share it easily. It... More

We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The waitress was very helpful. We ordered the fries with beef and the fried beets. Loved the fries, beets were okay. Then we ordered fried shrimp it was average. The pot roast was perfect. Gulf shrimp sautéed in garlic and wine was very good. Mashed potatoes were divine. We had very good... More

The food and service were excellent but inside, where we sat, it was so noisy that we could not visit while eating. Outside would probably be better but you'd only want to sit there, weather permitting. The salmon was perfectly done and the tomato soup and bruscetta were very good.

We have been meaning to get to Eat Here for a couple of years and always ran out of days. This vacation we decided to go to Eat Here first and we are so happy we did! We have tried almost every restaurant on AMI and this far surpassed the others. We were seated by Miccah, a friendly young man... More

Considering the fact that this restaurant is located in a strip mall, I was skeptical. I was pleasantly surprised, though, even though we did not get the chance to sit outside. The garlic potato chips and poutine were very flavorful. Mussels and clams great too. Small space, felt a bit cramped. However, the food made it worthwhile. Will definitely "eat... More

Had dinner with 8 people. Free wine while waiting was awesome. Salads were great. Main dishes weren't as described- clams had too much white pepper and no andioulle- wife's fish overcooked. Still a nice place but not the detail there once was.
