My boyfriend grew up in Westport, MA and so it's fun to visit the places his family likes and frequents. We came here for dinner and I actually walked in just before 5 on Friday to make a reservation and the staff was really helpful. Unfortunately when we got their our party number had changed but they accommodated us perfectly.... More

With wine bill was $83,... More

I have been to the Back Eddy five times in the last three years. I was there two weeks ago and was again very happy with everything. I had littlenecks, stuffies, and a clam chowder with corn. Everything was delicious, and the chowder had to be right up there with the best I have had. That is saying alot for... More

We had a large party with young and old. Food was delicious!!! The soup that night was Boulliabasse my husband said it was awesome. I had the sea bass over ratatouille, delectable. Other suggestions are the oven roasted cod, the tuna steak and fish and chips. The kids had homemade Mac and cheese everyone was happy. This was our second... More

The Back Eddy has a very nice location right on the water. Service was efficient and friendly and we enjoyed both meals we had there. I would not rate this as a particularly outstanding restaurant but all in all the food was good and the views from the restaurant were very nice.

Been here several times and am always impressed with the view. Staff is nice and attentive. Food is tasty and fresh. The only problem it really has is the noise. When it's crowded the noise is deafening. Eating outside helps, also away from the bar is a little quieter, but if you are interested in a conversation with your meal,... More

This was my first visit and although I may visit again, I would only do so if in the area already vs making it a special trip out there. There are SO many great spots to eat by the water and this one was just not up there with some of the others for me. However I can see why... More

A sharp right before you enter the roadway to approach Horseneck Beach in Westport, Massachusetts, the Back Eddy Restaurant is a seasonal restaurant that offers some of the best locally sourced foods in the state. The Back Eddy is not just a summer shack, you can make it an experience. You park your boat next to the Back Eddy's dock... More

I've been here multiple times since they opened. Some things don't change. The views are wonderful. The noise level is unpleasant. On the up side, service is more attentive and warmer than ever. Unfortunately what they are bringing out to the table has gone down hill and frankly not worth the price. The fish dishes were poorly executed, not tasty... More

Excellent food. We were surprised to find a wait on a Monday night, but that's probably a sign of a good restaurant. We ended up eating at the bar, which worked out perfectly. Delicious meal, friendly service.
