Great restaurant on the Westport River. Great food and beautiful view. A friend of mine got married on the dock. Indoor and outdoor seating and relaxed atmosphere. Great seafood and American dishes. Yummy appetizers too!

A bit pricey but well worth it, the seafood is excellent, our waitress Julie was very helpful with suggestions for dinner and wine selection to go along with dinner. Great place to meet both out of town as well as locals, good before dinner drinks.

Stopped here for a late lunch after exploring the pretty back roads of Westport and Dartmouth. Good food, prices seemed fair, decent atmosphere. I'd stop here again without hesitation.

Good food and service. Mainly fresh seafood. Lovely views. Expect to wait for a table during the summer on a good day. One down side is that the restaurant can be very loud when it is busy. Sometimes difficult to hear the people you are sitting with.

I received excellent service on a bust weekend evening dining in a party of 10. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was playful, the food was great. I could not have asked for better. I am sure that the Eddy would not fit the bill for all diners: a quiet romantic meal and experience is probably not going to happen,... More

The location on the harbor in Westport can't be beat. Even on a cool, foggy day, the docked boats seen from the deck lent so much ambiance to this little gem. The inside was very comfortable as well with a nautical feel that was done just right. Our little group had lunch and a beer. The service was good. The... More

Great setting on the water. Friendly staff and excellent food. Definitely worth stopping in to see. You must try a dark and stormy from the bar

The swordfish was perfectly prepared, wonderful staff, and unforgettable views!! I heard that you can even buy the chefs beers, and I loved that they served pickles instead of bread.

Nice restaurant on Westport harbor. Limited menu. Cocktails and entrees are pricey. The service was very good. There is no traditional dinner/side salad offered which I found unusual. One member of our party asked about ordering a side of baked beans-to accompany a pulled pork sandwich and was told there was no side of beans but he should order the... More
