Eddie's on Lake Norman
- Open Now
Eddie's is a great spot for some fresh seafood. My parents and I have been here multiple times and have never been disappointed with the food. For starters, their calamari and crab meat nachos was very fresh and good. We always order the Eddie's seafood sampler and it's always fresh and bountiful. You get a good amount of crab legs, oysters, muscles, clams and shrimp. It's a great deal. Staff was very nice but we had to wait 15 minutes for someone to greet and take our drink orders. The restaurant is on the lake so the great scenery adds to the ambiance. Highly recommend !
I had a hard time choosing between 2 and 3. The pros first, location. Beautiful views, and a great band on the patio good menu, and fresh seafood. The cons, like most places they are understaffed, but you will not only wait a long time to sit but also wait for every item to get to the table. They served a dish that was supposed to have pasta under the fish without the pasta. They brought the pasta out later once finished cooking, it ruined the dish cold dry noodles that could no longer blend in, I really couldnt believe they didnt just wait to serve it all together. One person found a hair in their food, that happens, not the end of the world, they took it off the ticket, but with the other issues it weighed in the score. They also charged 1-5 dollars more than the price listed on the menu for almost every item on our ticket. She did correct the additional 5 dollar item, but there was also a 1 dollar surcharge before tax with no explanation. I dont think restaurants are allowed to accept credit cards and pass the 3% surcharge to the customer but that its what they do, it is my understanding that businesses make an agreement with the credit card companies not to do that contractually. Honestly, I feel like most people dont really look at the bill and they count on that, its a poor business practice in my opinion.
The outdoor seating was lovely, breezy and scenic. We started with crab meat nachos and it was delicious and plenty for four to share. I had the beet & arugula salad, along with blackened fish tacos. Both were tasty, meaty and perfectly seasoned. The waitress was fun, attentive and friendly. It was an awesome meal and atmosphere.
Fun, sports bar with views of Lake Norman. Our first visit but definitely not the last. It's not Mexican but they make their own salsa which was quite good. The thin tortilla chips appear to be homemade as they were served hot, a little oil still on them but no salt. The shrimp in the tacos were small but plentiful, although the blackened seasoning was milder than I expected. They offer a nice variety of appetizers, entres, salads, and sandwiches. The Key Lime pie was more like a cake but was delicious. There is a full bar that includes some craft beers and an outside deck overlooking the lake, which is being expanded. Give it a try!
Stopped in on a fluke off of I-77 seen on Google maps. Extremely pleased with the decision. We had a great dining experience across the board with the seating, service, food an atmosphere with a nice view of Lake Norman. Our waiter and servers were on the ball with refilling our drinks and the quickness of receiving our orders. The food was very delicious with nice portions. (See photos below. ) The only bad thing is that we don't live anywhere near this place and the chances are we will never get to come back.
