“Place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Don't let the name fool you, the food is great. There may not be lots on the menu but they are all home made quality. The meatloaf is sensational. The filet can be cut with a fork. The resturant is small so reservations are a must. Staff is freindly and they have a great wine list. Don't pass this place up!

“if you like grease....... eat here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We just got home from a meal (?) at eat here and when I got home I felt like eating a potato chip to soak up some of the grease; that's how greasy it seemed. Forget getting a pizza appetizer, it came on a grease soaked piece of wax paper. Well, I shouldn't have indulged since I am on a diet however the description sounded delicious so we tried it. Mistake. Then I ordered some ribs and the dish came accompanied with grease infused fries. The ribs were tasteless. Ouch, more grease. We have options for restaurants on the Island so its been a year and a half since we were there and also had a bad meal. We thought we would try it again. Mistake. They also tried to stiff us by overcharging on the meal and we had to argue that one. There are many options on places to eat here, so I suggest you avoid eat here.

“Good food and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We ate at Eat Here on our recent vacation. We had considered it the previous year but felt the location left a little to be desired. We should have gone because the food was great and the service excellent. Between my husband and adult children there were six of us. We ordered several menu items and shared them. We had a couple of the flat bread pizzas which were excellent, one veggie and one sausage. The fish dip was average but enjoyable. Everyone loved the bruschetta and toppings. The lobster tacos got mixed reviews from average to delicious. I think it depended more on personal preference than quality. The chicken white chili (not sure if this was the actual name of the dish) was great and so was the HUGE grilled cheese sandwich. We didn't have any of the larger dinner entrees but they looked tempting. We had some kind of chocolate cheesecake for dessert...delicious.They do have outdoor seating but you are just in a parking lot. Because our group was larger and it was rainy, we were seated indoors at a long communal table. That was fun as we enjoyed our table mates. No reason to go for the atmosphere but the food is definitely worth the trip and when you add great service (I think our waiter's name was Burns) it is even better.

“Disappointed - Not what we expected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Really wanted to like this restaurant, but didn't. Waitress seemed inexperienced. Very limited menu. Our meal was pricey and not that good. When we told her we did not enjoy our meal, she became argumentative. Although manager offered not to charge us, that wasn't the point. Will go a mile further next time to eat at Sandbar. Much better food and views!
