Description: This place is temporarily closed due to renovation. 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.

We went here on a recommendation from a friend. Glad we did! It was great! My husband had the clams in a garlic butter sauce and I had the "cute little side salad" for apps. Then we shared the fish tacos, St. Louis style ribs, and fries for dinner. Really liked the interior as it is all open except didn't care for the LARGE checker/chess board game in the middle of the room. Dishes come to the table when they are ready so it won't be all at once, most likely. We were told that by our server when we were greeted. All of the food was excellent and the spices and herbs that were mixed into the food were wonderful! Great service, as well! You won't be sorry if you eat here as it is a bit different but in the best kind of way!

We went for dinner during our stay in Siesta Key. The décor is really nice. We shared an appetizer of pan cooked mussels in a beurre blanc sauce topped with frites and some arugula. There was also a crusty piece of toasted bread in the bowl. It was so delicious that we devoured it. The broth was so tasty. I had the gulf coast seafood stew with Andouille sausage in zuppa broth. That was delicious too. My husband had the not mama's pot roast. He said it was great. We would definitely go back next year. Chris was our server and was very helpful making suggestions.

My husband and I visited Eat Here, last night, for my birthday. I had previously eaten at the Main Street location and enjoyed it. This one is very charming, more so than the downtown location. Our waiter was terrific, the meal outstanding. We started with lobster tacos and shrimp escargot. Both were very flavorful and perfect for sharing. Then, we each had the seafood stew. It is among the best I have ever had.The waiter brought me a complimentary vanilla bean creme brulee for dessert, and the crust was delightfully crisp. We each had two beverages, and our bill was just under 100.00, which is reasonable for such high quality food. We will surely come back.

We enjoyed a fine dinner at Eat Here on Siesta Key. Highly recommend the salmon or the ribs. Most entrees are good for sharing. We will be back again no doubt.

On 10/11/2013, we hosted a group of over 30 guests at Eat Here and wow! what a fabulous evening for our friends and family! This was a wedding weekend event that we planned from out of town and the staff at Eat Here through the planning to the dinner's end were terrific! The manager, Matt and staff Tracey, Steve and others worked to make this dinner delightful! Our guests raved not only about the food but also about the exceptional service that the staff provided! The semi private room offers a bit of privacy without feeling closed and the decor of the restaurant is very cool! You have to see it! Eat Here is a top notch restaurant with a first rate staff! Thank you Matt and the entire Eat Here staff that made our guests evening memorable! We can't wait for our next visit!!!
