This was our second visit to "eat here" and was our best dinner for the second year in a row! Also, they claim to have the second best food on the island, but we can't confirm that statement since it was so long ago that we ate at Beach Bistro. This venue is more accessible and informal but doesn't take... More

Sean Murphy must get very bored when he has nothing to do. So what does he do after so much success with Beach Bistro for so many years? He cooks up (pun intended!) Eat Here! You wouldn't go far wrong by saying that Eat Here is a casual (and more affordable) version of Beach Bistro. It's the kind of place... More

We recently went to Eat Here for dinner as a group of 8. WE have been many times and had brought in friends from out of town.We were seated promptly inside (we prefer outside but it was full and we were a larger group). Our waiter was friendly, updated us on specials, explained the dual kitchen challenges regarding timing of... More

I have had 5 excellent meals at this little (but bigger than last year) gem on AMI. This visit was no different. We had The Big Night (surf and turf), Seafood Stew, Shrimpcargot and Snapper. We also enjoyed small plates: beet salad and brussel sprouts. After a small disappointment about not being able to be seated outside, we were shown... More

We read up on the best places to go on Anna Maria Island before we got here and decided that since it was the less expensive sister to the best place in the area, Beach Bistro, that it would be a good place to start off our vacation. It was absolutely perfect. The Serendipity Salad (where they put in anything... More

Inspired local island fare, craft beers and great wine list in a cozy casual atmosphere. Owned by Sean Murphy of Beach Bistro. Try the tempura beets or local catch. Everything on the menu is fabulous!

My husband and I vacation on the island every summer. We had thought about going here for dinner on our past visits, but never had. Thanks to a recommendation from a friend who visited last spring and to a local who lives next to our rental, we decided to give it a try. We are very glad that we did!... More

The restaurant is not huge so there is a wait however the time goes fast because of the way the waiting area is set up. It is conducive to meeting new people and in our case, talking to people who know Anna Marie Island well and are willing to share their other favorite places. The quality of the food was... More
