Our favorite Friday night summer dinner spot! Drinks and dinner on the back deck is a relaxing way to end the week. Great spot to watch the sunset. Bartender on the deck is friendly and fun. Sakonnet Oysters with mignonette are Amazing. Blue Fish, Bass and Fish and Chips are our favorites. Highly Recommend!

The service was fantastic, the atmosphere was great, ordering was simple, knowledgeable wait staff, the wine list covered most likes and the food - well, everyone had something different and we were all raving. We... More

I have family in the southeastern Massachusetts area and on my latest trip to see them I decided to stop by this popular seafood restaurant located on the Westport River. We had some drinks at the bar and ordered. I always have friend scallops and the other members of our group had risotto and a beautiful piece of grilled tuna.... More

Cream Brulé for dessert was good but my mom is warm apple crisp came cold without the ice cream and Lisa gladly brought it back to the kitchen and... More

Huge piece of tuna for main entree. Well worth the price. Yummy pickles instead of bread. Fish chowdah delish! Staff attentive.

I frequently eat at Back Eddy when i'm in Westport throughout the summer. The food here is fresh and great. I often get the scallops, but will try anything on their menu with no hesitation. My wife absolutely loves their mussels and will eat nothing else when we go there because she enjoys them so much The restaurant has a... More

Right on the water, I had the best lobster I've ever had and I've been eating lobster for decades. Extensive menu of local seafood including some local specialties. The grilled vegetable gazpacho with clomage cheese topping and the stripped bass were also excellent. If you have time, drive around the local roads to see beautiful fields and old homes built...

Came here after paddle boarding in Westport with friends. Couldn't sit on the porch due to the small tables that don't hold more than 4 people..but we had a table next to the window inside. Had a Grey Goose Bloody Mary which did not disappoint. Made with Clamato ( which I was nervous about) but it was delicious..so I ordered... More
