Wife and i were our Late and decided to stop in for the first time. We immediately noticed the sign at the door stating that no food was to leave the building. Strange but we continued. We ordered our food and was told after ordering that they DO NOT except credit or debit cards and quickly directed to the Atm... More

This place is very popular as a bar. It is also popular for their food. It's a very small selection, but always a good price for each item. If you like peel-and-eat shrimp, they always have plenty. I like their chick-on-a-stick, which is very salty and a little spicy, so it makes the ice cold beer taste that much better.... More

Husband and I stopped in for a quick bite to eat and a few drinks. Service is always fantastic. Had to switch to bottled beer since the draft was warm. We feel the food quality has gone downhill since we visited back in November. Shrimp was half the size, Pork Kabob was OVERLY seasoned to the point that we couldn't... More

Fast Eddies is a great bar with cheap, yet tasty food. It's always packed but well organized with fairly fast service considering the volume of people. They offer indoor and outdoor seating with live music most days. Things to note before going; they have a one drink minimum, and for ages 21+.

Fast Eddies is a great place to eat at very reasonable prices and good service. Only thing is there is no carry out for food eat what you order there. You place your order at the bar and pick up the order when it is ready. There are waitresses that take drink orders and serve drinks. I lot of days... More

We were warmly greeted at the door on a Saturday around 6pm and ID's were asked for as two in our group recently turned 21. The man at the door gave both in our group a free T-shirt (that was cool). You MUST be 21 to enter. I hadn't been here in 20 yrs probably, so it is far different... More

If you don't need ambiance of any kind, this is the place for you. I have seen this place grow from a little neighborhood bar 50 years ago to a place that is three times its original size and always packed. Honestly, I don't get it but they must be doing something right. The shrimp is delicious and only $.25... More

Loved the food and the prices but the live music was much too loud for us. We couldn't talk to one another at all during our meal. The food is amazing though!

I met with a group of teachers at this casual bar and local grill. The decor was decidedly motorcycle casual. The food servers and bar servers were very friendly and attentive. The star of the show at this popular local hang-out was the food. Burgers are $1.99. That is right, $1.99. I added a basket of fries for only 99... More
