    Celebrated our 29th anniversary. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" as we checked in. When our waiter approached the table, he left a handwritten card saying "Happy Anniversary." Attention to detail was superb. Chad was our waiter, and he was excellent. We will definitely be back. This restaurant is fine dining at its best.

    Same ambience of Cheesecake Factory just a little less crowded. Lots of traffic around our table. The music was a faint thumping from another area that became just annoying. Food was good but value didn’t match. Service was ordinary, meaning nothing special. First and last experience unfortunately.

    Valentine’s Day dinner with my wife. We have been here before, but never for this holiday. I was concerned that they might break out some tiny tables and try to pack in as many people as possible. They did not. The restaurant layout was the same as it always is. The food and service are always top notch. They have finally implemented policy for guest dining attire. Now, just enforce it. This is not a place for jeans.

    As someone that loves every visit to this place for the first time I can say the service was subpar. We picked eddies for.the second straight year for Valentine's day, last year service was six out of five stars this year it was 1 out of 5 stars. The food as always was a home run but the service we received disappointed us enough that we moved our daughters celebration this week to Cooper hawk. I only made this post because of how many great visits we have had.

    Food was excellent! Best lobster I have ever had. My only concern was we used $200.00 in gift cards and the waiter only credited us with $150.00 until we questioned him about it. He went back “to check” and came back saying he was sorry and gave us the full credit. Made us kind of wonder about his reliability.

    We celebrated my husband’s birthday in the bar area at a table next to the Fireplace. I was a little chilly and they were very happy to turn on the fireplace. We enjoyed Eddie’s wonderful Chopped Salad, and had the Seafood Tower for our dinner. The seafood tower was amazing! It included shrimp, Oysters, ahi tuna, lobster and King Crab legs. The service was amazing with server, Brad, who always pays attention to details to make sure you have a wonderful experience. Although Eddie’s is known for their steaks, the Seafood Tower exceeded our expectations.

    Food, as always, was excellent. Service was OK, but not up to their usual standards. We had a 7 year old enjoying EM for the first time, but our server didn't seem to understand that kids that age don't have the patience for a 2.5 hour dinner. He seemed to disappear for 10-15 minutes at a time. The restaurant was packed, so maybe they just need more help.

    Had a wonderful greeting when we walked in. Our reservation was for 6:45 and we were promptly seated. We left at 9:00. We felt the service was very slow between getting our drinks and finally, the dinner. It was around 8:00 that dinner finally came. The food was excellent, as always, but the wait time was way too long. The waiters were very nice so no complaints about them.

    Our food was great but our service was a complete disappointment. My wife requested something when the entrees were delivered & we asked the waiter for it againwhen he checked in on us & we never got it. A glass of wine that was ordered with dinner came seconds before the bill was delivered. Not sure if the restaurant is short staffed or just poorly trained, but our experience was well below expectations.
