Great Location

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.

If you want an to walk away feeling that the choice you made was for the setting then go and have one of their over priced drinks and enjoy the setting if you like good food and a peaceful setting stay away its so loud and the food is not anywhere near worth what they charge.

Worth the wait on a weekend summer evening. Great ambiance, views, raw bar and drinks on the deck. We all feasted on succulent seafood entrees, scallops were the best I have had in a long time, the blackened tuna was delicious. Portions were huge, drinks were reasonable and desserts were also yummy. Moderate prices - but a fun end of... More

Good for a late lunch on a Saturday. No appetizer or drinks which appeared to turn off our server. Very good fish and Chips and fried scallops. Waitress less than attentive, until check paying time. Great waterside view at our table. Still would go back.

We stopped in to check out this restaurant on the way home from Horseneck Beach and we found a great spot! I love the outdoor bar area, on the wharf and a floating dock area with plenty of seating on the water. The seating on the dock was fairly full on an early Saturday evening. There is a raw bar...
