Were so impressed with the fresh good food we returned a couple of nights later. This restaurant was more than meets the eye from the parking lot. The owner was on site greeting folks, gave us a free small plate.

Very good restaurant. The waitress was helpful and knowledgeable. Was able to send someone over to discuss Craft brews. Food was interesting and tasty and flavourful. Very good choice!

Four of us ate here around 8:00 pm on a Tuesday evening. My disappointment was with our server, not the food. The restaurant was not completely full, about 70%. After a short wait where we were offered complimentary wine! (Eat Here doesn't take any reservations!), we were seated at a nice table. We love this place and as always the... More

Had a late dinner here, which was very enjoyable. Restaurant is located in a strip mall and has both indoor and outdoor seating. I had a trout special and my husband had short ribs - both were very good. I like that small portions are available.

Eat here has a funny name but my family loves it. No burgers, no Sysco food, but unique inventive real food. Pot roast is a must and my sons love the Heart Attack Hot Dog. Family loves it and we will be back!

We recently stayed on Holmes Beach/Anna Maria Island, FL and dined at Eat Here for the first time. If you are looking for something excellent to eat but in a casual atmosphere, look no further. Everything from our fish dip appetizer to the shrimp and lobster tacos was delicious! We will be back again in April and will certainly eat... More

Beach Bistro's little brother (Eat Here) is a find. Beach Bistro is for VERY special occasions. Eat Here is priced for dining anytime. Great and fresh food. Very good service.

Three friends and I were looking forward to a dinner at Eat Here last evening. This is an annual event when our friends from Naples visit us on the island. The problem was not the 40 minute wait. We were prepared for that, as they do not take reservations. It was actually quite pleasant sitting outside enjoying the complimentary wine.... More
