“Chatty waiter, but delicious food”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Fish tacos and corn casserole! Super yummy! Kids selections are lacking, but if you're traveling sans kiddos- go here. I say that about the kids choices because all they had was soda or iced tea. Really? Not even milk? Still, nice outdoor seating. And very friendly staff...maybe a tiny bit too friendly, but it was the start of the "off" season.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We dropped by one evening without a reservation . We were promptly seated by a vey pleasant server. We shared duck pizza ....yes duck pizza and it was fabulous . We also had the pulled beef burritos, the order had 2 in it and they too were fabulous . There was plenty of food for both of us and we were full when we left. Service was fast. Prices were very reasonable . atmosphere wass lovely however we dined outside and did not go inside. View from outside was of a parking lot so not a great view but nice to sit outside. What can they improve? Minor stuff but Wine glass had water stains all over it,so looked dirty .... Not cool and the server did not come back after serving food to see if it was ok, or reorder drinks .But it was All ok and server was very nice and chatted with us after meal. Highly recommend Eat Here . Might want to make reservation in busy season.

“Somewhat Disappointed in Overall Experience”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We ate here in March at an off time, about 3PM. Seated immediately, ordered drinks and food. My food arrived in a timely manner but my wife's food took an additional 15 minutes and arrived after I had finished my meal. Waitress said she was sorry but that was it. Maybe offer a complimentary cup of coffee or some other gesture to acknowledge the screw-up? Food was fine but not 5 star. Just not impressed by service and I doubt we'll return.

“Yum Yum and more Yum!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Eat Here is one of the best little restaurants on Anna Maria Island. Great menu which changes often. There is always a little spin on the choices that are offered which keeps it fresh and yummy!

“Excellent Food ...............too rushed service!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is very much an English holiday makers review. Let me say straight away that the quality of the food here is not in question. We have eaten here several times over the last few years (please see other reviews).

What is frustrating is the speed of service which is far too fast. This I think is a cultural difference and is borne out of a desire to please. We arrived at 8.00pm and we had the bill by 8.45pm. We were bloated to the point of being uncomfortable. The mains arrived whilst we were still finishing off the starters. In English restaurants this is totally unacceptable. When we had finished the mains and declined desserts, the bill arrived within a matter of minutes, again not accepted practice.

I blame myself to some extent for not slowing down the pace of service. This is clearly what American people prefer but it does not suit all cultures.

Would I eat here again.....MOST DEFINITELY because the food is outstanding and the atmosphere has a pleasant buzz about it. What I will do is insist upon service that meets our needs.
