    We were there on a Saturday night. Was busy, We had to wait over 15 minutes even though we had a reservation, Food was very good. For appetizers we had steak tartare and lobster cargots. Both appetizers were very tasty and well presented. Main courses were salmon and steaks. Both very good. Filet was perfectly cooked. Service was ok. However we had to serve our wines (which was not expected when we spent over $50 for a bottle).

    This is the second time I come to this restaurant and wanted to try for dinner. The Pork Chop Marsala didn't need the melted cheese on top but was excellent overall. The fajitas were missing the rice and beans side so if I had not ordered the sweet potato fries, I would have been missing some traditional sides. The Tom Collins cocktail was very good, didn't taste like Crystal Light - one of the few places that makes it right. The white sangria also got a thumbs up as well as the Zinfandel. Daughter liked the steak fajitas. Would go back and try another dish.

    Bar harbour nights are great if you can't decide whether you want lobster or steak, one of the lobster offers is half a lobster tail and a rodeo steak, both cooked to perfection. They certainly know how to cook great steak.

    Our visit was excellent as always. The service was very good, always better to book on busy weekend nights. But it's the food which is the real attraction, outstanding. Both the steak and fish dishes are cooked to perfection, never overcooked . The garlic mash is wonderful and the veggies are just right. Everything you could want in a good evening out. We will definitely be back.

    A restaurant that specializes in steaks should have a cook who is able to cook a steak the way a customer has requested. The food was good, but we had to send one of the steaks back to be cooked a little longer because it came medium rare instead of medium as ordered.

    One of our preferred dining spots ... unfortunately subject to what seems to be the "ups and downs" of service and/or food for nearly every restaurant. On this particular occasion service and attention was lacking from a somewhat detached server. Food was good. but not up to the usual rave reviews for E & E. Will try again.

    This was a second and better visit. First time the service and AC were both frosty and the meal immemorable. Came again because it was equidistant for meeting a friend for lunch. We both had the Harvest Salad which was perfectly proportioned with deliciously tasty surprises. The Arnold Palmers were freshly made and the service was warm and attentive. The place is so comfortable several women were enjoying lunch alone. I would go again when I'm in the area.

    Steak may be part of the name, but the Caribbean lobster tail was delicious. It was succulent and paired perfectly with the evenings lobster corn risotto. The grouper flaked on the fork and as always, tasted great. This is one of my "go to" seafood restaurants in an area with plenty of choices.

    While visiting dad in Bayonet Point, a neighbor recommended this little gem. It was about an hours drive, but a great drive along the bay. Service was terrific and menu selections surprising. This is a true example of not judging a place from the outside - a wonderful dining experience in a restaurant in a 'strip mall!' I will definitely come back and recommend this to others. Steve, the general manager, was kind enough to seat us close to the door (due to folks using canes and elderly) and our server, Heather, was fantastic (I would ask to sit in her section again, as well).

    When dining at the E&E, I'm reminded of the better restaurants in New York City. There is a positive hustle and bustle but at the same time personal attention on the part of the server. In the many times I've chosen this restaurant, I've never been disappointed.

    We dined at 5:30 on Friday night and sat outside. Service as slow at first, but then picked up throughout our visit. My husband had the pork loin and I had the salmon. Both were good, but not spectacular. Beware that they add a 15% automatic gratuity to the bill. All in all we would recommend and plan to return.

    My husband and I got married on a nearby beach and dined at E&E with two of our closest friends. The staff made us feel very special on our special day and the food was, as always, outstanding. After stuffing ourselves with delicious appetizers like crab meat and shrimp quesadillas and the outrageously good calamari, we moved on to our main courses, which were superb--steaks for the gents and seafood for the ladies. We each topped it off with dessert of our choice. The newlywed's being the molten chocolate lava cake, which they provided on the house for our special day. All-in-all, great food, wonderful drinks and excellent service for our wedding dinner celebration. We highly recommend E&E Stakeout Grill.

    Ya, more than steaks, especially on the lobster special night, but really, our reason to head out to E&E is for a great steak. Put in order for "medium rare plus" and result was a perfectly prepared entree - part way between medium and medium rare. Enjoyed the Cesar salad and a double dose of vege (no potato for me tonight!) to complete the meal. Nicely made drinks - a partly fussy order of Grey Goose gimlet with freshly squeezed limes that came out just right. My only concern for E&E is its popularity with locals and the invading snowbirds... plan to book table in advance, and enjoy a later hours dinner. This place is just too popular for us locals to drop in without reservations made a couple days in advance.
