Great location food well

The location is perfect, great service but the food is nothing special for the price charged. Even the fish fry doesnt have the best fish. The drinks are expensive for what you get.

A great place for food in Westport with exceptional views! There is a great bar outside, the food is delicious, mostly seafood but they do have chicken and pork as well! Especially during peak season (summertime) call and make a reservation.

Visited the Back Eddy on the way home from Horseneck Beach. This is in a very nice location with great views. We had the Swordfish and the Halibut and it was good but not $30 good. We were disappointed in the prices and don't think we will be returning because of that. Plus, the parking was very crowded and it... More

We had dinner for our annual "wrap up the boating season" dinner on Saturday Oct 10, 2015 at the Back Eddy. Only four adults this time ( we usually have 10 or more). We started out with drinks at the bar while we waited for our table. The wait was only 30 minutes. If you are a seafood or fish... More

View was stunning. Interior was plain and rustic. The service was adequate but nothing memorable . The food was average seafood. The colossal shrimp cocktail appetizer was fresh and tasty. Prices were higher than the quality justified. Would not return to eat for dinner. Sunset cocktails and maybe aps would be more appropriate.

Heard mixed reviews about this place. One thing everyone agreed on was it is pricey, as in $30 a plate. The view of the water is great but so not worth the drive or the price. The food was good but not $30 a plate good. There are too many really good seafood restaurants in the area that are cheaper.

Was here recently for a friends rehearsal dinner and the restaurant did a stellar job. Service was prompt and friendly. Beverages were constantly refilled and the food was absolutely delicious! Try the bacon wrapped giant scallops, the littlenecks, oysters, mussels! OMG, all the seafood is delish! There was a crab bisque was also amazing. A must!

A group of seven of us took a surprise birthday visit to Back Eddy: I had not been before, but for sure, I/we will be returning! The atmosphere, the service, the cuisine, the setting was all very good.The Squid Salad, Clam Chowder, Lazy Lobster and Lobster Sliders got rave reviews. But my Halibut was 'off the charts' great: grilled, and... More
