This is our favorite place to go o. Friday nights. We love to sit in the lounge near the fireplace. The crowd is a little more casual and more fun! Food is always fabulous and waiters are the best!!

Consistently great experience! We live an hour away so we come for special occasions. Attentive staff gives excellent service as would be expected for an establishment such as Eddie's. Hope to bring out of state family next month.

Great food. Love the shrimp cocktail and beef there. The shrimp are large and succulent. My son ordered the thick cut NY Strip steak. Tender and juicy according to him.
