My recent experience at Back Eddy's was excellent. A few friends and I sat at the bar and ordered appetizers and drinks. The friendly bartender, Russ, greeted us promptly and we had drinks in no time. All the apps we ordered were delicious, reasonably priced and served in large portions! Let me recommend the cheesy shrimp grits and eggplant appetizers.... More

How have I lived here so long and never discovered this hidden gem? Tucked away just a few feet off the beaten path with fantastic food, great service and a homemade ice cream to die for. Our lunch server was great ( his name was Russ) and the owner stopped by to make sure that all was well. Checked out... More

A friend of mine who is local to the area recommended this restaurant to my husband and I while we were down visiting. We decided to take their recommendation and went in during the week for dinner. I could not have asked for a better choice! We were immediately greeted at the door with several enthusiastic smiles and I fell... More

Going out to restaurants here when the snowbirds are flying north is something we look forward to. Our bartender/server was Ashley and she was excellent. We shared a bruschetta appetizer which we have had before and is quite unlike what you would expect. It's light and perfect for sharing. For our main courses, my wife had the marsala chicken and...

Great small restaurant one street over from downtown venice. Food was excellent. Great selection of seafood and other dishes. Two had the flounder, one salmon and one chicken Marsala. With the fish came rice, spinach and red cabbage. All was very good. We will be back.

We were recommended by friends. My chicken marsala was extremely tasty and the others in our party were delighted with their meals. Service was good.

I lucked into Back Eddy due to a 30 minute wait at another restaurant down the block. What good luck that was! A friend and I were casually dressed on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and so chose to sit outside. The staff was friendly and professional, offered complimentary mimosas(I passed on the alcoholic beverage). The manager recommended the grilled vegetable... More

The Back Eddy hits all the targets: excellent, creative food, experienced professionals both in and out of the kitchen. It's located one street back from the intense Venice Ave. rabble with lots of nearby parking. It's cool casual with an outstanding selection of wines.

We were in Venice one afternoon, weaving our way through the throngs of tourists, and decided it was time for lunch. It was a beautiful day and we wanted to eat outside, yet we couldn't bear to have hundreds of people brushing by our table, which is the case for most of the on-street seating here. Trusty TripAdvisor suggested the... More
