Diner Reviews
  • "we had an 8:30 reservation and sat right away. the atmosphere is really good. I had the seafood sampler platter special and my wife had almond crusted shrimp. Both were done nicely. our waitress made a nice wine suggestion (its a secret!) but after that seemed distracted. Takes us an hour to get there from where we live. I would eat there again if in the neighborhood but would not make a special trip."

  • "This restaurant was recommended to us. We are in FL on vacation from OH. Chose to go on Monday evening for the 1 1/2 lb lobster special dinner. Was not disappointed. Food was excellent. We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and our table was ready for us. Will definitely return."

  • "As a "snowbird" who spends the bulk of the winter in Florida, this restaurant is one of our favorites. Any time we bring friends or family to this restaurant, they are always very pleased. The only glitch with our last visit was probably an open table glitch. We were bringing our visiting daughter here for the early bird on a Monday, and although we preferred reservations for 5:00, open table showed 4:00 as the latest available. Once we arrived and got seated, it was obvious that there were plenty of empty tables available. The next time, I will call the restaurant to confirm availability for a later time. Other than that, perfect. If you want a great meal with very reasonable drinks, plan to visit during the early bird hours."

  • "Our meal was delicious! We usually order steak, but I had the scallop special & my husband the grouper special. They have also added something new to the dipping sauce--balsamic vinegar, I think. Jenna was an attentive waitress, noting when we needed refills or plates cleared. We also like to have a drink in the bar before dinner, taking advantage of Happy Hour. Greaet evening as usual!"

  • "We took my mother out as a special treat, and every one of our group loved their meals and our server. The food had so much flavor, and the portions were generous; I will look forward to my next visit!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "While the food was fabulous, our server pretty much spoiled the dinner. While she was not overtly rude, her lack of warmth made it obvious she would rather be doing anything else. After we were seated it took her ten minutes before she came over to our table. She even rolled her eyes at one point. I've been going to E&E for many years and have never been treated so poorly. Maybe she was having an off night, I don't know."

  • "We dine at E&E on a regular basis about once every two weeks--the food is always fresh and the presentation wonderful. As we are observing lent, we have been going there on Fridays for the wonderful fish dishes (this past Friday the scallop special was unbelievable ! I'm a grouper fan, so both my husband & myself were in our glory!) we always started with the escargot. Our waiter Rebekah was very attentive, always with a smile . Well,we head back up north end of this week so we will miss E & E ----till we meet again in November The Mac Phersons"

  • "With all the seasonal travelers in town, the place was crazy busy. Fortunately this situation did not effect the fine food and excellent service. Tried something different for an appetizer, the smoked fish spread, which was wonderful. The lobster I had for my entree as well as my wife's seafood sampler were equally great."

  • "LOVE E&E!!! We are "locals" so we go at least once a month throughout the year. However, in Feb and March, reservations must be made weeks in advance. That's ok, because the food is excellent! However, the other night, we got there at 5:30 and were out by 6:20!! We were with friends, and we felt so rushed. I would have had another drink, but waitress had us packed up and ready to go! I can see why, because there was a very long line outside, but when we got to the car, we all looked at each other and couldn't believe how rushed our dinner was. The food was excellent!!! The drinks were all so good....no skimping at E&E."

  • "E&E always gives you a outstanding experience every time! Thank you!!!!"

  • "I love this restaurant. The food and service are great. It is difficult to get a dinner reservation at a descent time"

  • "E & E is predictably very good all-around. It was a bit dark where we sat, but we could still see the food. I will return, and I will recommend to others."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "My wife and I had a date night at E & E Stakeout recently and it was enjoyable. Clam Chowder was very good but even though my wife liked the Caesar which followed, I wasn't so keen. To me it was a little dry. My wife had the lobster tail which she really enjoyed and I had the Delmonica Rib Eye which was pretty good although a little overcooked. However, we have eaten here before and it has always been a favourite of ours perhaps this time I just was a bit unlucky. Still we are going back again soon."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Very good food for a fair price. Service was professional and efficient but still personable. Wine list had a good variety but with some great bargains."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "As usual, the E & E staff did a great job and excellent food."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The quality for the price is exceptional, it is very busy, and a reservation is a must. There is absolutely nothing negative that I could say about this establishment. I believe it is a family run business, and the family really does pay attention to what is going on in their restaurant, they care, that is why they are successful."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Above all, the food is outstanding. Highly recommend the Early Dining menu. The filet is an exceptional value in quality. This is one of our favorites."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "As we were driving to E&E for dinner (company in town) I got to thinking; thank goodness for this trio of always fabulous, fresh, dependable restaurants. As a life long Pinellas county resident, Guppys, E&E and Mystic Fish are part of my family. They all just do everything right! I never have to wonder or worry...it's a perfect experience every visit."

  • "Service was very good. The panko crusted pork chop was fantastic. Reccomend this restaurant to anyone."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "If you like the feeling of everyone running around and yet not getting good service you'll love this place. The waiter we had could not even explain items on the menu. They all seemed to be too busy rushing people in and out as fast as they could. Very uncomfortable."

  • "So many tasty local beers. Would be nice to see them here."

  • "My husband and I got out on a Monday night, rare to be without children. So we chose our favorite spot. We enjoyed our little table for two, small, but it was fine for us. It was very busy, but it's high season so we anticipated it to be packed. Always make a reservation here. Wine was fab( Bruno Pinot Nior), and so was my steak and lobster. Service was fantastic. We will be back!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "We were visiting in the area and asked someone for a recommendation for a good steak. Wow, it was well beyond our expectations. The Delmonico was huge, done to perfection medium rare and amazingly well-flavored. The rack of lamb was so tender, beautifully medium rare and also full of flavor. The creme brulee was delicate, very ample and with a beautiful presentation of berries, kiwi and whipped cream. Our only disappointment is that they were out of the prime rib, but that is not surprising late on a Sunday evening. We will absolutely be back!"

  • "Have been visiting E&E every time we visit Florida from the UK for 20 years now. Found by accident when returning from a day out at the usual Florida attractions whilst looking for anywhere to eat that was more than fast food. Well we found it! The food is of excellent quality and cooked as requested. Have recently seen some reviews that were less than complimentary so wondered if we would be in for a shock this time. NOT AT ALL. Table was waiting as booked, waitress very attentive and friendly and of course the food was as good as ever. Going back again next month before we go home."
