My wife and I were in Little Compton RI over the past weekend and based on a recommendation from someone we met we tried the Back Eddy Restaurant in Westport for a late lunch. I have to say that we were both impressed with the food and nice waterside dining.
My wife started with an order of their steamers which were extremely fresh without any sand in them and perfectly cooked. I opted for a bowl of their sea clam and roasted corn chowder which was a delicious milky style soup with a nice smoky bacon and clam flavor. For mains we chose the the grilled salmon which was served over a mixture of farm fresh veggies that had been done with a nice and somewhat spicy curry flavor. I had the grilled swordfish which was served with steamed red potatoes and several slices of heirloom tomatoes. The fish was very fresh and perfectly cooked and with the potatoes and the tomatoes made a great summer meal.
The wait person suggested we try one of the desserts which are all made on the premises so we tried the key lime pie. It was excellent with a nice tart flavor and a well executed graham cracker crust.
The view from the restaurant and the service were also very good and other than being seated next to a family with two very unruly kids it was a perfect early dinner on a beautiful day.
