Nice View-Pricey

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... read more

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.

A local place for us but always has exceptional seafood, casual atmosphere and good selection at the bar. Service is very good. You can't miss with any of their seafood dishes.

Friends suggested we meet them there last evening for diner. It's an hour drive from our home, it was well worth the drive. I knew I liked it the minute I walked in, a big smile and hello from the hostess, great relaxing colors on the walls and a tremendous view. But all this would not amount to a pile... More

Great location, good food, a bit pricey at times. The outdoor deck and dock make for a great location to have dinner and drinks

Being a resident of the area, we have certainly visited the local restaurants on more than one occasion. The Back Eddy is one that has been around for a very long time and we have all had many a visit there. I'm sad to say that over the years the disappointment in these visits has been growing. The business has... More

Food is fresh good& local. The views on the dock of the River & sunsets are breathtaking. Live weekend music on the dock make it even more desirable.

The Backeddy is a very nice seafood restaurant on the water near Horseneck Beach. It is a bit expensive, but the food and setting are worth it. We had a party of 5. The service was good, and all the food we were served was just right. The fried scallops may be the best anywhere.
