The Back Eddy is an okay restaurant in a beautiful location. The food is average, however, and food prep quality varies astonishingly from diner to diner. Onion skins and raw garlic cloves in my mussels, but perfectly cooked steak on my friend's plate. Another person's pasta arrived cold and stuck together, while another's was deliciously steamy and al dente. The... More

You can't beat this gorgeous spot right on the water. With that said, the food is average and quite pricey.

Great Sunday brunch! The bloody Mary bar was well stocked and had all the necessary accoutrements. The food was as wonderful for brunch as it is on the regular menu. We had the Macomber hash and the apple upside down pancake. Which were delicious!! An unexpected treat were the hot and fresh donuts that were complimentary for the table. Great... More

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

Took my mom for lunch and the view was picture-perfect. Our waitress Lisa was fabulous. I had fish and chips and my mom had fish sandwich which I thought wasn't bad. 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
