“EAT HERE, Again, Again, and Again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

We always have to stop into "eat here" when we're visiting AMI. We are annual patrons of Sean Murphy's Beach Bistro, eat here (Sarasota) and eat here on Anna Maria. This time, we used Open Table to make our reservations and requested a booth. Upon arriving at 7PM, a waitress greeted us with clip boad menus. She began to sit us at a table next to the entry way, very close to a family with a crying child. I told her we had request a booth via OT which she confirmed. The problem was, no booths were reserved, nor a table for two in a better place other then by the front door. So not to ruin the evening, I requested to be seated at the common table where were attended by a terrific waiter. Now we were happy again.

Started with French Onion soup that really has a great kick and a small monkey bowl of smoked fish dip, topped with black caviar. The flavorful garlic toasted baggetts accompanied both the soup and dip. Both our entrees were Fish Tacos with a tropical salsa. Again, eat here scores with high marks in the kitchen, but a table by the front door, you can keep. Yes, we will be back next year. JR from Sebring

“Don't let the name fool you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We passed this restaurant several times before hearing from a local about how good the food was. Prior to that, we had no interest in popping in. Thought it was a diner. Far from it! This place serves some of the most unique foods (try the special hot dog wrapped in bacon w/ bernaisse sauce), The shrimp/lobster tacos were very good. As was the beef, and other seafood dishes. It is a small place, so make sure you have reservations if planning to dine at prime time.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Laid back, casual dining - the food was well prepared and delicious. I understand that Beach Bistro owns this property as well, so the food was expected to be delicious and did not disappoint.

“Delicious, unique food and great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Outstanding food, creatively and thoughtfully prepared. The tempura beets were amazing as was the corn casserole. Lobster and shrimp tacos were excellent. Grouper special was very good but we didn't think to ask the price. It was $34, way more expensive than anything else on the menu, so an unexpected surprise when the bill came. Veggie pizza was good, not outstanding. Desserts, key lime cheesecake and Polynesian pineapple cake, were awesome, unusually flavored and well worth some extra calories. Matt, our server, was enthusiastic and informative. The atmosphere was nothing special but the food sure was.
