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!

My husband and I decided last minute, no cooking, let's get a lobster roll at Edd's. While entering to place our order, the waitress was heading out with two dishes that looked delicious. One was cod, my husband got the last cod dinner. I ordered crab cakes with corn on the cob and a sweet potato. Both meals were exceptional... More

I can tell you all about how great the food is. (It's amazing). However, the story is my Mom brought my Uncle there. She was treating him to a day trip from the nursing facility where he resides. He has MS, is wheel-chair bound, needed to stay in the car to eat because he can't transfer himself..but she wanted to... More

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
