About the restaurant
Contemporary French, and Canadian Fare, with elevated casual service, and a cozy but vibrant atmosphere. Sit at the chefs rail in front of the open kitchen, at the bar to watch oysters get shucked, or at a table in the dining room. Great classic, and original craft cocktails, local and international beer, and a wine list boasting Canadian, French, and Italian wines.

About the restaurant

Now well into our third decade in business, Eddington’s attributes the restaurant’s success to creating flavorful and creative meals consistently using the best of Huron County’s bounty.
Owner James Eddington states “we are so blessed to be living in such an agriculturally rich area of the world”.
Although the local food movement is really starting to take off, it has always been the driving force in Eddington’s kitchen. A menu that changes frequently, as each season inspires the delicacies our region has to offer.
Eddington’s occupies the original Carling homestead (built in the 1870’s). After two major renovations, an addition of the a new dining room and a serene outdoor backyard summer patio, the restaurant has a clean and modern look while maintaining its traditional and warm feel.

Fennel bruschetta was fabulous . Goat cheese beet salad absolutely perfect and the pecans just amazing.. Pasta of the day I could have had two plates .. 10/10 would go back again. Now a little negative … Sangria was warm needed more ice. service was polite but too busy for just our server alone. Don’t fault that as it was a beautiful patio day.
