LOVE LOCAL: The Back Eddy

11/21/2022 | Love Local, Patient Resources

Our team knows how vital our local businesses are to creating a strong local community. It is so important to keep these small hometown businesses going and to let residents know what’s available so they can support them and help them grow.

Our “Love Local” post this month is about The Back Eddy Restaurant – a seafood restaurant that sits right on the waterfront of the Westport River.

The Back Eddy Is Special

I might be a little biased, but the Back Eddy is special to me because I am actually an employee. I work in the kitchen, and I started when I was 14, so I’ve been working there for going on 16 years now.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and awesome staff, and it’s in a beautiful location.

They also have an outdoor bar, and on most weekend nights at the end of the dock, they have some food service. Stay to see the sunset.


The Seafood Is So Fresh

They serve yummy local seafood, so if you like seafood, this is the perfect place for you. Try ½ dozen local oysters at the raw bar, or jump straight into a clam chowder as a starter followed by classic bacon-wrapped New Bedford sea scallops or coriander crusted North Atlantic salmon.

The Boat Show — grilled swordfish, garlicky mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, and lemon-parsley butter — is my personal favorite dish.

If you’re not a fan of seafood, don’t worry – they also offer BBQ pork, 14oz. ribeye, and felafel mezza, and they have a kids’ menu.

You can order takeout online too.

For large parties, you can reserve a room, part of the deck, or the whole dock or restaurant.

Sadie Belovitch

Growing up in western Massachusetts, Sadie went to Westport High School and fell into audiology many years later. Initially, what drew her to the role was the challenge, as she wanted to learn something new and meet new people. As a patient care coordinator, she is responsible for checking patients in and out, making appointments, and ensuring everyone leaves with a freshly baked cookie. Everyone on the team is so nice and welcoming, making it not only a great place to work but to learn and grow. Outside of the clinic, Sadie loves hanging out with her friends and family, as well as spending time with her kitty, Petunia. Anytime she can get outdoors, she loves to go for a walk and take in nature!
