The lobster bisk is out of this world as is the seafood salad. I had the Parmesan sole and it was a huge portion. Everything is fresh and wonderful!

Reviewed the wrong eddie v's. This one is the best. Oysters a must!!! Come with friends so you can try many things on the menu. Sharing is promoted. Order sides to share. A little expensive. 4 course meal about $75 per person. Appetizer, soup to split. 2 dinners with 1 large side and the banana fosters. Must get the banana... More

In addition to having a wonderful atmosphere, Eddie V's is a great place to bring a group - pick a main course for each and then a few sides to share and everyone gets to try the sides.

We had one of my favorite meals ever for our 23rd anniversary - awesome 4 course meal including Crab cake, Ahi tartar, key lime salad, lobster bisque, Filet, Swordfish, sides of Lobster Mac & Cheese and Spinich and finishing off with creme brulet. I was also very happy they have blue cheese olives for my martini. Fantastic meal and very... More

Dined at Eddie V's because our first choice was booked solid. SO glad our first choice didn't have room for us...we LOVED Eddie V's. Best meal we've had in a long time. The atmosphere is fantastic. The service is top notch. We got the crab legs for an appetizer. Amazing! The beef tenderloin was out of this world. The crab... More

I love this restaurant! It has amazing seafood and excellent service. I always try to eat here at least once when I am in Austin. The wine list is extensive and the prices are very reasonable.

We had an excellent meal at this restaurant. Had the beef tenderloin which was done to perfection. Had the lobster bisque for an appetizer and we always order it if it is offered on the menu and this bisque was some of the best we have tasted. I would definitely recommend this restaurant while visiting Austin and the 6th st... More

Wonderful food, service and atmosphere! You won't go wrong by stopping in for a drink or a wonderful meal! I had a fantastic crab and shrimp chopped salad, it was rather large and every bite was delicious! So grateful my friend recommended this place!

We almost didn't get there as it was the semi-annual "Pecan Street Festival" and the streets around Eddie-V's were closed off. That plus being totally new to Austin made navigating really challenging, but we finally made it, late, and were nonetheless greeted cordially by an attentive staff. For us, it was an expensive place, but the food was excellent, presentation... More
