“Huge Fan, but I miss the Chorizo Corn Dogs”
Reviewed December 2, 2010

Eat Bar is the biggest thing I miss about moving out of Arlington. The bartenders are well versed in craft beers and wonderful wines. They've never failed to meet my expectations or my husband's. The food is also always more than pleasing. We've never left here unhappy and consistently recommend Eat Bar to friends, family and anyone we meet in our excursions around town.

“Biggest Dissapointment Ever”
Reviewed September 25, 2009

This place looks like it should be excellent, very well laid out and decorated with attentive staff. There was a very good atmosphere and expectations were high. The food was terrible. We had 3 tables/booths and not one memebr of our group enjoyed their meal. Howo can something as simple as Pasta with tomatoe and basil go so wrong? Drown it in so much olive oil that it becomes almost an oive oil based soup with pasta in. The burger that the bar proudly announces is the best ever was not finished on any table. In fact it says something when after leaving you see a McDonalds and start thinking "mmmmm lets stop and get a burger".
This has the potential to be a very good place to eat - if they get a new chef.

“This was a neighborhood...”
Reviewed June 13, 2009

This was a neighborhood gem, although not very inexpensive. You could order pretty much any wine by the glass or half-glass, which is a great idea. We order a smattering of appetizers, and all was delicious, especially the warm olive platter. This place is cozy, dark, and very inviting.

Truncated menu from adjacent Tallula. Great beer selection with a lot of tasty ales and IPAs, which buys them respect points from me. We like the baby burgers. The bacon wrapped figs are really intriguing--might be too sweet for some. The chai chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches are awesome except the ice cream melts fast so you have to stuff them in your mouth really quick... which I would have done anyways.

“Inventive little plates, amazing wine and beer selection!”
Reviewed March 6, 2009

We went in March 2009 - four of us sat at the bar (no reservations, no beeping coasters, no holding tables - so if you want a table come early) on four comfy stools. Our bartender, Stu, had been with the organization that owns EatBar for 12 years. He knew the bar and food menu inside and out, including all the subtleties of ingredients - he is a fantastic ambassador for the place! We had seven plates among us - the house-cured sopressata, the house-cured prosciutto, the meatballs and polenta, the sliders, the chicken confit risotto, the frites and the hushpuppies - everything was absolutely phenomenal. We all could have had seconds and thirds of the meatballs - and the sopressata was to die for! We can't wait to go again! It's a bright, lively atmosphere - a bit loud, but it's supposed to be. A dedicated small parking lot fills up fast - park on Pershing for the best shot at street parking.
