We were greeted by Joe and he preceeded to take our beverage order and served us quickly. We had asked about the food and he told us how fresh everthing was... More

We have had Brunch during season, lunch, dinner and Wine Dinners at Back Eddy and we keep coming back for more. The food is always beautifully presented and perfectly prepared. The service is friendly and professional. The Huevos Rancheros at Brunch are the best I have ever eaten. Any thing offered with the Green Cashew sauce will have you licking... More

While the food here was okay, three of us had limited lunch hours. We arrived at noon and all had places to be or repair persons coming by 1:30. Although we mentioned this to the hostess and the server it took almost two hours to get soup and salads. We couldn't even get our water glasses filled. Only go here... More

This restaurant serves good uncomplicated food in pleasant surroundings. The excellent service provided by the waitresses is exemplary and very much appreciated. It knows its clientele and provides the product that appeals to them. Prices reflect this. Overall, it provided a good experience on our first visit to this area.

Recently my friend and I happened upon the Back Eddy Bistro. What a delightful surprise. We sat outside under a little Tikki cover. The service was excellent as was the food. I had a wonderful fresh eggplant/grilled vegetable sandwich with fontina cheese. Delicious! The sweet potato fries that accompanied the sandwich were cooked to perfection. My friend's tilapia sandwich was... More

I've had lunch here and dinner. Food is OK I suppose but VERY expensive for what it is and what you get. Sandwiches seem to be about $3-$4 more than the same thing elsewhere. Certainly when you compare it to Blu Island Bistro and places like that ..... Generally I feel the food elsewhere is better, cheaper and a larger... More

Found this restaurant on line and took a chance. Very small, cute place not on a main street. Very popular and very busy when we arrived about 6:30 pm. No reservation yet they managed to seat us. Fabulous service - very friendly (Ashley) and I love when you ask their opinion between two dishes and they really speak highly of... More
