As always, a great experience overall. 5 stars! Mostly due to the fantastic young lady that normally takes care of us, Chelsea. Eddie's is DINNER ONLY. Known for steaks although they offer poultry and fish dishes.

The quality of the food is exceptional. The steak is delicious, but so are the mashed potatoes and specially prepare vegetables. And, there is a strawberry dessert that they prepare at the table that is out of this world.

The bar is fairly quiet during the week, but there's live entertainment on the weekend, so it's noisy. Not sure how small your small group is, but when you make your reservation, you can ask to be seated in one of the... More
