    Eddie's is perfect for a date night or a night out with family. Although their steaks are always perfect, last night I ordered a burger and wedge salad, and it was perfect! You just can't get a bad meal at Eddie's!

    The bar seating is so relaxing! We split the romaine salad and had the king crab corn chowder and oysters Rockefeller, we split it all and had more than we could eat. The bread is the best anywhere. The service is always spot on.

    We were celebrating our birthdays. The crab cake appetizer was perfect. The steak and salmon were cooked perfectly and we're seasoned well. Server and helpers were knowledgeable about menu and drink options and they were polite. Carrot cake was delicious but the serving size was way too much. As an out-of-town visitor, it was hard to take leftovers home so it seemed a waste of cake. We'd go there again for a special occasion.

    First time having Mothers Day brunch, we usually have dinner. Not impressed at all. The food and deserts were tasteless and i was expecting more than that! I assumed it would be outstanding as the usual for dinner. Sadly we will not be having any kind of brunch here in the future.

    Honestly you can get similar food at less cost from most any fine dining establishment in town. Our server Misty was fantastic but a bit distracted and over tasked. I got the Bison ribye my wife got Del Mar, with appetizers, salad and drinks....unfortunately almost in that order...didn't get our drinks until after appetizers arrived...always a no no. Tim Willis was a treat...our food expediter. It was our 23rd anniversary and were originally seated in THE BAR! Fortunately they seated us in the main dining area upon request. All in all...eh. Stick to standards and you'll be fine....it is a very nice restaurant and equal sevice. 3 out of 5

    Drinks, potstickers, and French onion soup were great. The bison ribeye was mostly fat (overly fatty for a ribeye), so that was disappointing.
