Super breakfast food as well as lunch. We did both. Dinner's probably good also but we were not there for that. The service is fast and friendly and portions are a good size. Enjoy!

My first visit to this place would have been a five star trip! The service was wonderful and the food and drinks were excellent. We had a super fun dinner here - however last visit was not so great. The service was okay but our waiter seemed annoyed when we asked questions. The food was okay but nothing like the... More

This is a high energy place with lots of fun food options. We elected to sit outside on a somewhat cool evening. Service was attentive, and we enjoyed our meal and the outdoor ambiance.

Service is variable. I literally at the ( not full) bar recently for 20 minutes while the guy forgot to place the food order he had taken.

My boss told us about this place and I'm so glad we took his advice. The cocktails were awesome as well as the service and our dinners. Everything was fresh and delicious. We will be back.

On a recent visit to Sarasota, have now had a chance to try out the Eat Here restaurants in both Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island. Both have been delightful. Great service. Creatively prepared seafood and accompanying dishes. If their watermelon salad is on the menu, don't pass it by. Don't be fooled by the restaurant name - this is... More

The kids ate everything and it wasn't all chicken tenders! The location is a little "urban" (retail parking lot) but we still ate outside - food was carefully prepared, good ingredients and the right portion sizes. Good local craft ale. Excellent desserts. Favourite meal from 2 weeks in Florida.

We had 8 in our party and decided to go here for our last dinner before going home. The waitress was so friendly and made recommendations about favorites on the menu. Our dinners and drinks were amazing. I had the lemon drop martini and it was one of the best that I have had!

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.
