My boss told us about this place and I'm so glad we took his advice. The cocktails were awesome as well as the service and our dinners. Everything was fresh and delicious. We will be back.

On a recent visit to Sarasota, have now had a chance to try out the Eat Here restaurants in both Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island. Both have been delightful. Great service. Creatively prepared seafood and accompanying dishes. If their watermelon salad is on the menu, don't pass it by. Don't be fooled by the restaurant name - this is... More

The kids ate everything and it wasn't all chicken tenders! The location is a little "urban" (retail parking lot) but we still ate outside - food was carefully prepared, good ingredients and the right portion sizes. Good local craft ale. Excellent desserts. Favourite meal from 2 weeks in Florida.

We had 8 in our party and decided to go here for our last dinner before going home. The waitress was so friendly and made recommendations about favorites on the menu. Our dinners and drinks were amazing. I had the lemon drop martini and it was one of the best that I have had!

The food was very good, Daniel's service was excellent, the music was nice and the decoration very appropriated. Was not cheap but no extremely expensive either. They have very good happy hours specials.

Don't be fooled by the name of this restaurant. It is actually more of a gourmet, upscale little spot with a nice atmosphere and live entertainment. We had the shrimp and lobster tacos, garlic potato chips with bleu cheese dip and the toasted bread with olives, feta and pesto. It was all incredibly good. They have happy hour starting around...

This is a lovely restaurant in Siesta Key Village with great service and excellent food. The menu will definitely appeal to the foodie in you, but will not put off the person who loves basic steaks. But, best of all, everything is so well prepared, so fresh and beautifully served that it tastes even better than you think it will.... More

Bigger than I thought! I run "The Girlfriends meetup club" . We had a nice bunch of waitstaff. A little disjointed in the service as a result of that. And we had a party of 11. I had the Mediterranean platter - very tasty humus and tapenades, another couple of people had the fish tacos and the salmon. And none... More

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.
