We were looking forward to trying this restaurant during our stay on AMI. My husband's meal was good, but our appetizer was coated in heavy grease making 3/4 of it inedible. Ordered the 1/2 fire roasted chicken for my entrée. The fingerling potatoes, baby carrots and arugula salad were fantastic (only positive for the night), but my chicken was bland... More

Visiting family in the Bradenton area we dined here in a party of eight to celebrate a couple of birthdays. It was recommended by one of the birthday celebrants who lived in the area. Several of us ordered the French Onion soup boastfully called, "better than any frenchman’s onion soup" which the menu claimed had "hints of sherry and cognac"... More

Clean and comfortable, friendly and relaxed. Not hipster or stuffy. Good wine and beer selection, and a good selection of specials. The menu here is not complicated. There are no deep fried frozen appetizers or entrees. Service was perfect. They encourage tasting and sharing, and a container of assorted spoons sits on the table with that in mind. A clean... More

Their seafood didn't have a price on the menu, so we were a bit surprised at the price in the end. That said, the rest of the menu was very reasonable. We each had the blackened grouper, which was amazing! We wanted to go back the next day for lunch, but they weren't open. We'll definitely be back!

Tucked in a strip of retail shops and next to a Wells Fargo, you might not give Eat Here a 2nd glance. Blink and you might miss it. However, if you want to try something different than the standard Tiki Hut pub grub that populate AMI, then take the Trolley this place. The menu offers fresh seafood but also some... More

This is a quirky little restaurant located in a small strip plaza on Holmes Beach. We enjoyed the atmosphere of everything being about the food. Much care goes in to each dish, from start to finish. The menu contains everything from steak and seafood to meatloaf. We dined on the pot roast and the seafood stew. Both were of extremely... More

We have a home on ami and have been to eat here now countless times. Tonight was our first bad experience. Mussles were off, pizzas were not available at all, kids were splitting steak (since no pizzas available) and they refused to cut it and put on two seperate plates... Service was non-existent. Our appetizer plates sat until the end... More

Lobster and shrimp taco chewy and clams are sandy. The wait staff was just so-so. The fish dip was pretty good but not enough to make me want to EatHere again.

While this restaurant was touted as excellent, we found it to be small, crowded. While the food was okay, it really wasn't anything special and the service was not particularly attentive.
