Description: The Eat Here restaurants in Sarasota and Anna Maria Island were recently selected as two of Florida"s "Best New Restaurants" as part of Florida Trend's Golden Spoon Awards. The award was particularly gratifying for the team at Eat Here's parent restaurant, the Beach Bistro, which has long been enthroned in Florida Trend's "Golden Spoon Hall of Fame" and ZAGAT's "Top Restaurants in America. Eat Here was previously selected “Best New Restaurant” by newspapers on Anna Maria Island and in Sarasota. The third Eat Here has now opened on Siesta Key to similar rave reviews. Eat Here celebrates chef-crafted, Gulf-Coast cookery featuring presentations of local farm products, fresh, locally-caught seafood and inspired pizza and tacos. The Eat Here bars serve traditional and creative cocktails, craft beers, and wines from pimarily family-owned vineyards. Eat Here’s chef staff is trained in the Beach Bistro's school of commitment to culinary excellence.

“RECOMMEND”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We order out while on vacation (from 7/28/2013~7/31/2013), after review from Yelp and Tripadvisor.

Tasty= lobster tacos (heavenly) , ribs

Do not order onion soup, salty and in a thick layer.

Also, I don’t like the box that they used when you order out.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I have eaten at every restaurant in Siesta Key over the past 10 years and I can say without reservation Eat Here is the best. The food was incredible. I had the heart attack hot dog followed by Key Lime cheesecake for desert. Our waiter, Dan was very friendly and helpful without being overbearing. My wife had a wonderful salad. We had to post pictures on facebook for all our friends. They were jealous to say the least..but I am sure they will give Eat Here a try when they go there. It will be one of my first stops next year. I just hope they don't take that incredible bacon wrapped deep fried hot dog off the menu!

“Omg SO Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This place is a hidden Gem! Our server Caroline, was fantastic. The food comes out when it's ready meaning they don't wait for you to finish your salad to bring your food. Also some entrees might come out before others. so if you order Shrimpcargots (highly recommend) they might not be served as an hours d'ourve, but accompaniment to your entree, no problem since they are piping hot for 15 minutes. (ouch!) a little tip... Split a salad, it's Huge! The Caesar salad is amazing! We ate every bite. I had the salmon with the horseradish cream, and my boyfriend ordered haddock with the same topping. The corn soufflé was divine. You must "Eat here"! Request Caroline and please remember to always tip 20%!!!
