Casual, fun place with great food

Great location on the river with outside seating. You order inside and your meal is brought to you. Excellent food and great lobster rolls!

I read the reviews online and they seemed to be great. That is the opposite of what I experienced. The place is small. No indoor seating unless you go into an enclosed gazebo. We walked in and the old lady taking an order and talking to the customer couldn't even acknowledge that there was another customer. The kitchen is open... More

Better than we expected! It looks like a "greasy spoon" but it's not! We went for bfast & had an egg sandwich and it was perfect! Coffee was very good, bagels were good. The people running it (family) were so nice, going above and beyond! View is SPECTACULAR

We visited Eddy's Place for the second time in a year. The staff and Eddy himself were very friendly and the service was excellent. I had the Fish Tacos which were excellent. Probably the best Fish Tacos I've ever had. The Key Lime Pie was also excellent. I will return to Eddy's Place every time I visit Westbrook, which is... More

Eating outside on picnic tables overlooking a beautiful, serene water view is a great way to spend a summer evening. Edd's is dog friendly and has a playground area for the kids. The food was quite good on our two recent visits: we especially liked the lobster roll, the cod with a lemon breadcrumb topping, and the grilled shrimp. There... More

Decent menu, nice alternative to fast food. Priced fairly and deli quality food. The view is sweet. Nice place for a Saturday lunch. Plus side: your furry friend is welcome, even provide water for him.

As a shoreline eatery on the water, Edd's Place offers pleasant views, great service and good food and value for the dollar. I was with a group of three. Two had hot dogs, and I had their version of fish and chips: a Sea Dog. It's served in a toasted bun like a lobster roll with the usual condiments and... More

I've been to Edd's Place over ten times. It's a good lunch spot--they have great grinders and some creative sandwiches. However, the food is expensive and I find that the service is not good. The staff is usually in a bad mood and rude. It's nice to be able to sit outside and overlook the river while eating though. There... More

one of the best lobster rolls anywhere. large or small, hot or cold. Ed's is a quirky place that will have you coming back time and time again. You eat outside in a heated glass gazebo or picnic tables. Try the pulled pork sandwich, it's the best I have ever had. Perfect stop for traveling families and beach goers. Soft... More
