Our first trip here and we’ll be back. Our server, McKenzie, was fabulous! The onion soup, shrimpcargot, tempura beets and gulf shrimp were all divine!

Sat on a nice quiet patio that felt incredibly cozy. The owner visited all the tables to say hello. Delicious food and dessert. Would definitely come back.

We had two great meals at Eat Here. The hummus appetizer was huge and wonderful. It could have been a meal. The ceaser salad was good. The fish chowder was delicious. Small filet was cooked perfectlt. The Mahi special was great. Mussels were good but pomme frittes wer a bit soggy. The option for two portion sizes is a great idea. Wish other restaurants did that. prices are reasonable. Wine prices were also very reasonable. We ate inside both times. On both occasions our servers were friendly, helpful. The meals were efficient but not rushed.

We have come to eat here every year since it opened. It seems to be going downhill in ambience, service, and to some extent the food quality. And, while I do appreciate that they now serve cocktails, the choice and quality of the gin and bourbon is very limited.

We went to brunch here on a Sunday - the food was great, and we enjoyed the bloody mary and mimosa bar, as well as the fruit and waffle bar. The non-traditional breakfast options were great. Our waiter was very good and attentive, we had a great meal and a great time.

We were in Anna Maria for a week’s vacation. We ate out every meal. Had dinner twice at Eat Here during the week. We had wonderful dinners both times. The Pot Roast is the best I’ve ever eaten anywhere and I think mine here at home is good. Ditto for the lobster and shrimp tacos. Cannot say enough great things about this place. Cozy, comfortable and relaxed. Definitely my fave and there are more than a few good restaurants at AMI.

We have enjoyed Eat Here many times. It is our favorite place on Anna Maria. But Friday was an off night for sure. They were under wait staffed and had new people serving as well which made for a long wait for drinks and awkward timing. Chef was Not having an off night. The shrimp were delicious and also mussels.
We will certainly return, those fried beets are calling. But will be hoping for a return to the usual high caliber of serve we’ve come to expect here.

Sean Murphy has created another great restaurant. Eat Here offers an exceptional menu of very fresh offerings. His wine selection is best in class. Service is the best. We visit Anna Marie frequently and always include Eat Here as a dining experience. Thanks for being the BEST !

Sorry, we were disappointed with our meal Sunday evening. It was just OK, nothing especially tasty about the meal. The bread served with the hummus platter and another appetizer was heavy and greasy. The shrimp were just OK and the potato mash had little flavor. It appeared to have instant potato flakes mixed in. Probably will not go back to this restaurant.

Recently had brunch at Eat Here. It was exceptionally good. Had the lobster Benny, avocado toast and some mimosa. All were too notch
The only suggestion I could make is to have forks or tongs in the community access picked etc as people were using their fingers.
Also have wait staff suggest customers not refill their used glasses with the complimentary mimosas and caesars etc.
Was a super brunch

The food here is delicious! The staff is well trained and helpful. There were four of us, and we all loved our meals. Tenderloin was done perfectly. Pot roast was delicious! This might be the best place to eat on the island!

We tried to get into Eat Here last year but didn't have reservations. We made reservations this year and we're glad we did. My husband enjoyed the Gulf shrimp which were served around a bed of mashed potatoes. I enjoyed the fish tacos with the tropical salsa. The complimentary pimento cheese was good but would be better with fresh baked bread instead of saltine crackers.

Everyone on the island highly recommended this place to eat. We decide to try it out. We were seated immediately and placed our order. The wife ordered the salmon and fire roasted green beans. I ordered the fish (mahi) tacos and fries. The major issues with the food was the fire roasted green beans were cool and far from fire roasted, but the salmon was good. My fish tacos were terrible. The mahi was cubed and fried to the consistency of salad croutons and not grilled fish. Wasn’t anticipating this the fish would be hard and crunchy. I could not recommend this place nor will we go back.

My wife and I quite enjoyed our meal there. The reception and our server were very professional and helpful. It was a bit noisy but you were very busy which is a good thing, perhaps some sound dampening egg sponges attaché to the underside of the table would help with the sound

Eat Here wasn’t as wonderful as I remembered it. The wine prices have become overinflated and my martini wasn’t anything special except small for the price. I think I had shrimp, but it wasn’t memorable. The pimento cheese was a nice touch, but the saltines (!) were stale.
I always look forward to Eat Here when I’m in Florida, but I guess I’ve outgrown it. I’m sad.
