We eat here often. This time was for our anniversary. The specials were mangrove snapper. One was a whole fish flash fried with a watermelon gazpacho and the other filets with lemon caper sauce. Both dishes were amazing. The whole fish was fantastic. Perfectly done, very moist and the gazpacho sauce was a perfect summer touch. With a couple large... More

The restaurant itself is a small and non descript place, but the food is outstanding! Eat Here is just as good quality wise as Beach Bistro, but the prices are more reasonable. Service is top notch! I had beef tenderloin with cheese and bacony mashed potatoes with braised purple cabbage. The beef was" like butter" so tender with a delicious... More

We went as a party of eight. There is a sign that says that was the limit for party size. The wait for inside was an hour so we chose to sit outside. There was a large fan, but it was not on. The waitress promptly took our drink order. There was a large selection of beer and wine. The... More

Ate here at the recommendation of fellow travelers and so glad we did. Small place but so worth it! Get there before 7:00 pm as the place fills up fast in the evening. Fresh food and excellent preparation. Good selection of beer and wine too! Service was great! I highly recommend this place and we will return. Try the "Poutine... More

Love Eat Here! This was our 5th summer in a row vacationing in Anna Maria and hands down, our favorite restaurant on the island is Eat Here. The food has yet to disappoint us. We order small plate style and everyone at the table shares plates. My wife was super excited that the "shrimp-cargot" was back! The seafood stew was... More

Ate here twice with family in May16, best meal on the island for us, slightly pricier than other options nearby but well worth it for the quality of the food served. Ribs are a must for starter, pork roast and meatloaf were superb, kids well catered for with make your own pizza.

This place had a weird look to the outside so we were not too sure about trying it. It was recommended by our hotel so we gave it a try. OUTSTANDING, is all I can say. I would go back there again for sure. 5 Stars!!!

A bit eclectic, but unique. Very tiny and offering a limited menu. The fresh made "gourmet" pizza was great, but other entrees fell short. Service can be slow since they have two kitchens. Check the menu before you wander in.

Wanted to try this plac but we tried calling ahead on two occasions this week and they told us they couldn't take our party of ten and they also would not seat us in two groups of five or a four and a six, etc, so......

We never got around to "eating here" on our first trip to AMI, so this time, we made sure to check it out. We were sorely disappointed. The food is interesting, but be prepared that everything is ala carte and can really add up. I found nothing to be extraordinarily tasty and with dishes up to $41, I feel that... More
