I don't know if this still occurs but used to be half price appetizers on Mondays. Smoked oysters and lemon drops. Yum!

The service is impeccable. And that is my least favorite thing about Eddie V's. My only complaint is that the bar is not bigger.

Certainly the best seafood in Austin. Yes, fresh, period. Carnivore in your party? Steaks are just as good. All presented and served with style and grace. Be prepared to pay accordingly. One of the best happy hours in town. So get there early. Excellent wine and appetizers at these prices can add up to a delightful meal in the elegant... More
