Offering fresh gulf coast cookery, hand crafted beer and wine, and outstanding service in a laid back atmosphere, Eat Here is a more casual answer to local’s favorite fine dining eatery the Beach Bistro.
Having spent decades providing Anna Maria Island with the fine dining of the Beach Bistro, owners Sean Murphy and Susan Timmins wanted to give the island a chef-driven casual dining experience. Focusing more on the quality of food and a neighborhood friendly atmosphere rather than strict courses, Eat Here began.
The menu at Eat Here offers a twist on many of the Beach Bistro favorites with the addition of many lighter options. Designed for sharing, many Eat Here menu items are great for a family style dining experience.
Everything at Eat Here is delicious; with so many options it’s hard to choose! The Dinner menu is broken down into several sections including soups/salads, tacos, wood fired pizzas,beginings smaller or sharing, blue plate specials/grasslands, and sides. The Serendipitous salad is fabulous with an amazing champagne vinaigrette. If you love fries the Poutine is a must! Eat Here has an amazing selection of fresh line caught domestic fish. The nightly fish selection changes depending on what type of fish come in that day. Try the not mama’s pot roast smothered in gravy if you’re not a seafood fan. You have to order a side of corn casserole; the best you’ve ever had!
Eat Here focuses on quality hand crafted beer and wines sourced from family/small operations.
