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

On a recent sailing vacation, my husband and I took the launch into Westport for drinks and dinner. There was a big crowd on the deck but we were able to be seated right away. We saw they had bubbly by the bottle from nearby Westport vineyards so we ordered that and then checked the food out. We've all had... More

Visited the Back Eddy this week. The seafood is fresh and really good, the location on the water in Westport is very nice and the service is always excellent. Unfortunately, we also experienced listening to the owner/manager berating a staff person, including the use of profanity within feet of our table. I'm sorry but if you have a problem with... More

We decided at the last minute to eat dinner here on Father's Day. We were able to sit outside on the porch and enjoy the beautiful evening. The food was wonderful. They did however bring out the appetizer with the meal, which the waitress did apologize for and seemed upset over. By no means did it take away from our... More

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.
