I thought the food was good, not great but good and we had a large party and the service was fantastic. Place was packed for a Tuesday but we had reservations which really helped.

We love to fish the gulf coast and create our own fresher than fresh seafood masterpieces, but we have had some really wonderful family celebration dinners here. Of late, we have had a number of very satisfying happy hours here as well. Great assortment of tasty offerings and have tried a dozen or more of the menu items, but both... More

This Eddie V's is right down near the 6th Street area, but it isn't a cheesy tourist restaurant. It sure doesn't look like much from the outside, but it has a sophisticated, cosmopolitan warm glowing interior. We've visited them in a couple of other cities and this lived up to its reputation. The four of us enjoyed 24 oysters in... More

Went to Eddie V's last night for 7:30 dinner. The bar was packed on a Tuesday. The band was great. We had drinks and the shrimp appetizer. A little over cooked but good flavor and nice presentation. The staff were great. I forget about this place, because there are so many new ones to try.

We thought the food was terrific, and the service was reasonably good, considering that this was a very busy night. The overall feeling of our party was we would do this again.

Excellent food, excellent service, nice atmosphere. Eddie V's is the place to go for your fine dining evenings (or afternoons). Yes, it can get busy and it can get loud, but still a wonderful meal with exquisite service. We try and visit several times a year; meet with old friends, or just have a romantic evening together. Great restaurant every... More

I've been to this location a few times and it varies. It seems to be run by kids that have not a clue what they are doing and seem bothered by your presence there. Food is not worth the annoyance.
