“Disarmingly simple, yet simply delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Sean Murphy really knows how to tickle your taste buds. While his renowned Beach Bistro fare is far more formal, Eat Here is innovative, it invites you to sample and share the different smaller sized menu offerings. The ambiance is definitely conducive to meeting other like-minded souls, experiencing delicious food at a fair price.

“A New Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

If you want a burger or wings, go somewhere else. This place has all the uniqueness of a quaint bistro with excellent service and value. The chef chooses what he will serve although you do have somewhat of a choice. Amazing selection of wines and beers.

“Less than good/very disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

We had heard rave reviews about this restaurant 'Eat Here'. Well let me tell you, it was way over rated. I had half a roasted chicken for $18.00 with (2) very, very small pieces of roasted potatoes & (3) baby carrots. NO rolls, no kind of bread or anything. My husband had (maybe baked, don't really know) Mahi Mahi with (probably frozen) shoestring French fries, NOTHING else for $20.00. Now I never ever complain about a meal anywhere but this was the worst meal my husband and I have maybe ever had and way, way over priced for what we got. We will never go to this place again.

“Innovative, amazing food, great service, will definitely be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I can't say enough good things about Eat Here! From the moment we walked in, everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. Even though we didn't have reservations, they happily accommodated us. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. The food was unique and delicious, from the poutine appetizer to the expertly prepared salmon. I highly recommend Eat Here!!

“Great Ribs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

I have eaten here a bunch of times since they opened and love the Ribs and Shrimp. It's not always easy to get a table and you often have to wait but its worth it. Our kids love the build your own pizza and there is always something for everyone. Their texas toast for dipping is great too :)
