Had shrimpcargo as an appetizer and yellowtail snapper with keylime butter & capers with a sweet corn casserole. Eating on the patio...

We stumbled across this restaurant on the last eve of our trip. We were so very impressed and can't wait until we go back the next time. Excellent staff and excellent food, prepared and served very tastefully. I think it may end up to be our favorite someday! So glad we stopped in!

First time here most certainly won't be the last! Tempura beets?? Who knew this would be so incredibly delicious? Everything we had tonight was so good it's hard to pick a favorite, bruschetta, awesome, shrimp and bacon scargo? Mouth watering! Truly our biggest regret is not finding this place years ago!

Lots of restaurants on Anna Maria Island but we ended up dining at Eat Here twice during the week we were visiting the island. Fresh foods - especially the fish dishes and unique recipes ... loved the tempura beets for an appetizer. Fish tacos one night were excellent and yellow snapper with a baked corn dish was amazing another night.... More

Excellent staff and food. My wife, a veteran of the restaurant, convinced me to give it a try and I'm glad she did. This one we will visit again.

Great ambiance. Felt like we were in Europe. Good food. Service really excellent. The chocolate budino was perfect. Meatloaf was really tasty and ambiance relaxed and jovial. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We got married in Anna Maria. I've been here 5 times already. I don't know how I've missed this place, but I'm sad I went 4 times without eating here. The food is ALL phenomenal. Every single plate that came out from the kitchen looked amazing. The prices were SUPER reasonable too. We highly recommend. So far it's our favorite... More

We were told we MUST visit this restaurant while on AMI, so we did. We must've come right after a rush. Our server was very busy so a manager took our drink order and got us started. Our server was not very friendly or attentive to us. The manager did come back over to see if we were ok, and... More

It's been a while since we visited Eat Here and the food did not disappoint us. Everything was freshly cooked and delicious.i had the Red snapper which was superb and so fresh and my husband had the tacos which were equally as good. We had the bruschetta to start and it was fantastic. I am surprised that they haven't moved... More
