Westport MA/ Tiverton RI Recommendations

Anyone recommend either Back Eddy or the Boathouse? We have a group of six adults for dinner? I have not been to Back Eddy in years and want to hear about their food. And I have never been to the Boathouse but have heard good things.

  1. Back Eddy is still awesome, we were there last month. You'll find more about both these places (and more!) on the Southern New England board here.

      Can you send me link to past discussions? THANKS.

    2. When in Westport, I went to Cork in New Bedford and had a wonderful dinner of small plates.

      1. The Back Eddy, while not outstanding, is very nice and a fun place to be on a warm summer's evening. It certainly is the best place to eat dinner in Westport. Note that it can get crowded, and waits for a table can last 30 minutes or so (in which case your best bet is wait on the dock attached to the restaurant where there is a nice bar to get drinks). Service is usually friendly, if a bit inefficeint. The fish and BBQ are the best items at the Back Eddy. FYI - the Back Eddy is not great for vegetarians, as there are no vegetarian main dishes.
        The best place to eat in Tiverton, in my opinion, is a lobster shack of a place called Evelyn's. It is right on the water. Try their lobster roll and then get some of the best ice cream in New England at the nearby Gray's store.
