Went to the restaurant with 7 people including a 2 year old when others in the area were full and were seated right away. Food was very good and had a variety for some of us that aren't into seafood. Nice decor and view out the windows.

This is like "Cheers" on the water! What a combination of site, atmosphere and good food. We often go with a few couples and it's a great social evening with a sunset! You must try the fish specials, and the Oystaas.

We love the "idea" of the Back Eddy and visiting it has become an annual tradition while on vacation in the area. Fabulous location of course, and nice casual decor, very family friendly. However the menu has not changed very much over the years, and they offer no vegetarian entrees. When I asked about this, I was told "There are... More

This is a favorite stop when in the area for good reason, they care about their food. Last night my wife and I had a great meal there, we kept it simple: A nice Sauvignon Blanc, 2 orders of mussels from the appetizer menu and 2 salads. The wine was a pretty good value, the mussels cooked up in their... More

Sunset at the Back Eddy is about as good as life gets. Waiting for a table on the dock, with (or without) a cold beverage in your hand as the sun starts to set is just what the doctor ordered, no matter what ails ya. Sitting at one of the outside tables with the freshest seafood and localest produce imaginable,... More

After vacationing in Westport, MA we visited the Back Eddy at least 3 times during our stay and had a great experience each time. The location is pristine, overlooking the Westport harbor filled with sailboats and a great view of the historic Westport point. It’s the place to watch the sunset with a cocktail on the back deck. Give the... More

Can't say enough. Right on the water with beautiful view. Indoor and outdoor dining includes outdoor bar and grilled appetizers where small boats tie up at the dock. Have been eating here for several years and the current menu is the best. Raw oysters and steamers always a great choice as well as all seafood selections. A can't miss experience.

There aren't many restaurants in Westport to choose from. I was blown away by this one! The food was over the top delicious. The staff was awesome, they all work together, work very hard and it shows! The New Bedford sea scallops were FANTASTIC! I had them wrapped in bacon serviced on succotash WOW. Others ordered the cod special and... More
