I am a local and it is a favorite of mine. Comfortable atmosphere often with live music, friendly staff and Allie and Eddy are often at the bar chatting with diners

Another lunch with a friend got me thinking again about Back Eddy's Bistro today. I tried todays lunch special... Filet Tip Chile that was a just awesome! My friend tried the Asian Eggplant Sandwich with their sweet potato fries. Another winner! Pinot Grigio and my friends Chardonnay paired perfectly with our meals as did the pleasant atmosphere and courteous staff.... More

Back Eddy Bistro is my favorite place to dine in the area. The food, people and atmosphere are all wonderful. I can always count on an excellent meal and friendly service. The wine bar is a perfect cozy place to stop in and enjoy a glass with great conversation. Everything I've tried has been great. I usually get the duck... More

Ed & Allyson have done a really nice job creating this slightly-off-the-beaten path, but still downtown Venice restaurant. The menu is interesting, eclectic, but also very down-to-earth. And they offer those local area residents who stay around for the heat of Summer, some wonderful light, refreshing dishes to "keep it cool" when it's bloody-hot outside. And visitors need to try...

The first time we dined at the Back Eddy Bistro, we were pleasantly surprised to find such great food in Venice. Yes, it's upscale, but so worth it! Terrific food, wonderful service; everyone is friendly. It's a must-visit every time we go to Venice!

There are so many wonderful choices on Back Eddy's menu but for me it has to be the Shrimp and Grits that are my very favorite. Creamy, rich and with a little zing that makes each bite a delight. The service is friendly and the bar is a fun place to enjoy good company, A Must if you are visiting... More

I love figs and I love goats cheese, so of course I had to order the figs stuffed with goat cheese appetizer. These were the most incredible creation I ever put in my mouth. Mouthgasms ensued. I could have happily stopped there and been sated, but I had the Shrimp Curry. I could taste every flavor in this dish, the... More

One word...FOODTACULAR!!! Our waitress was terrific and even though she was really busy she took the time to give us some great ideas for places to see during our visit. When the food arrived I couldn't wait to dig in. Honestly, I could live the rest of my life on their pan fried conch fritters!! Thank you Ed and Allyson,... More

If you're a wine lover, Back Eddy Bistro is for you. I saw an excellent chardonnay on the list for $62 which had cost me $90 two nights earlier at a more renown restaurant farther up the coast. I chose a wonderful Silverado Pinot Grigio for the four of us for something like $36--also a real bargain. The appetizers and... More
