“Great Food, Good Wait Staff, and Phenomenal Entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Wonderful selection of food. There are so many good things on the menu, that is is hard to make a selection. The great thing is, we have yet to have anything that was not yummy. Excellent selection of beers and wine, inexpensive and filling appetizers, and wonderful entrees.

Best of all, Schascle Yoakum aka Twinkle, plays there on the weekends. Twinkle and her band are amazing and a lot of fun.

EAT HERE! :)

“Outstanding...Period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This place really has changed in the last few years. The quality is better and service.

Don't hesitate going...you won't be disappointed.

Its a tad pricy...but its Beach Bistro's 2nd baby.

“Excellent meal at Eat Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Our group of 4 adults and 1 toddler had an early dinner at Eat Here in mid-February, 2013. The service was good, the atmosphere was cool-yet-casual, and the food was excellent. The quality if all the food was very high, and we particularly liked the smoked fish spread, the mussels, the kale Caesar salad, and the daily fish special (mahi with fruit salsa). Overall it was a yummy and easy dinner experience- we'll definitely be back.

“The "little sister" to the Beach Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

If you cannot afford the higher prices at the Beach Bistro, on Anna Maria Island (Holmes Beach area), go here. The food is great, the service excellent, and eating outside a good option. I had the serendipitous salad ($9) and my wife had the duck mousse ($11). For dessert, four (!) of us shared an apple crisp ($8). Everything delicious.

“Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The server could not explain why the raw cauliflower served with a dish was brown. He said he would find out but never returned with an answer. Also failed to deliver an ordered drink. Food was ordinary. Server was uninformed or preoccupied, but not with service.
