This is the antithesis of fast food. My husband and I have been to The Back Eddy Bistro for dinner on two occasions. Both dinners were delightful and the service excellent. I took a friend for lunch yesterday and we both enjoyed unusual, exceptional meals. My friend had the appetizer special, salmon cakes with Roulade sauce and greens. I ordered... More

One of my favorite places to dine! Food is always excellent and enjoyed in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Allie and Eddy go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied with their cuisine and service. Wine tastings are fun and I enjoy the creativity and thought that goes into each dish. Also, great atmosphere and music.

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

Owners Ed and Ally prepare, unquestionably, the best food in Venice, Fla. They are very "hands on" ; each dish is imaginatively and deliciously prepared. Ed is usually back in the kitchen cooking and Ally is either making her wonderful desserts (including homemade ice cream), or is upfront at the bar chatting with customers. It has a friendly, intimate small... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants in Venice, and a treat for a small town. You like Chili's or Applebees, prefer the typical grease and salt creation served on a platter, find comfort in the sterile corporate dining experience? I'd say Back Eddy's not for you. If, though, you want a menu with some interesting combinations, a quiet and relaxed... More

My husband and I went for a late dinner, sat at the bar and had wine and appetizers. Food was amazing and the service couldn't have been better. We enjoyed visiting with the owners and hearing about some of their experiences.

A top restaurant in Venice. Eddy and Ally know how to make people feel welcome and how to prepare food that is special. The beet salad is to die for, the crab cakes are the very best in town, and the pork loin melts in your mouth. Eddy always has a special, savory ingredient that makes the dish so yummy.... More
