The Back Eddy

There’s simply no better place to take in a sunset than the deck of the Eddy—preferably with a PBR or a ‘gansett in hand, and a bowl of smoky clam chowder or the signature stuffed clams on the table. And when the blues are running in Nantucket Sound, you can forget about ordering anything else. Everything is freshly sourced and cooked with minimum pretension, making the meals here the stuff of vacation memories.
