Westport’s Back Eddy restaurant a summertime seafood favorite


After hearing about this SouthCoast staple since working at The Standard-Times, I was thrilled to finally visit The Back Eddy for this week’s Newbie adventure. The last time I was in this area of Westport was when I visited Elephant Rock on Horseneck Beach.

I arrived at The Back Eddy only 20 minutes after it opened, and already the parking lot was crowded and the outside seating area was full. There is plenty to do while waiting for a table on the deck. Aside from the indoor dining and bar area, the outside deck  features a bar, raw bar and grill. People can also arrive to the restaurant by boat.

I decided to sit inside, near the windows, where I was still able to enjoy the view of the Westport River. Wow, oh wow. Absolutely stunning!

The restaurant felt as if I was in an upscale fishing shack – rustic with an ocean theme. It had a local hangout vibe, seemingly full of regulars that have been dining with The Back Eddy for years. More so, the waiters referred to a few guests by name and one waiter knew what a man behind us was going to order.
