Description: YOUR CASUAL FINE DINING DESTINATION NOW WELL OVER A DECADE IN BUSINESS, EDDINGTON'S ATTRIBUTES THE RESTAURANT'S SUCCESS TO CREATING FLAVOURFUL AND CREATIVE MEALS CONSISTENTLY USING THE BEST OF HURON COUNTY'S BOUNTY. Owner James Eddington states "we are so blessed to be living in such an agriculturally rich area of the world". Although the local food movement is really starting to take off, it has always been the driving force in Eddington's kitchen. A menu that changes frequently, as each season inspires the delicacies our region has to offer. Eddington's occupies the original Carling homestead (built in the 1870s). After two major renovations, an addition of a new dining room and a serene outdoor backyard summer patio, the restaurant has a clean and modern look while maintaining its traditional and warm feel.

“Very Nice Dinner”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

My wife and I went to Eddington's on the suggestion of a family member. The place was very nice and the food was great. The food is all from local producers and the portions are very good sizes.

We would definitely come back

“ambiance and good food”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Setting is a sympathetically restored Victorian home on Exeter's main street. Restful atmosphere and well-prepared food. Pleasant and efficient service. Would recommend the drive to Exeter.

“Quaint older home turned restaurant”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

It was unfortunate it rained the evening we where there, as they have a lovely outdoor seating area.
We had a cozy corner near the bar area to dine in - beautiful areas divided up within the home.
They have several specials , we had their fish special and chicken .
The staff are very friendly and attentive!

“very nice fine dining with the family!”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

This restaurant is more or less hidden in an old yellow brick house. But it brings some nice ambience to the whole!
We dined out with the 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 kids. We have been superbly served by Greg and the meals we have had were, though not cheap, but of awesome quality.
Well worth the price!

Keep up the good work! Well done!

“Don't miss Eddington's!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

I love this restaurant! It's my 'go to' for special occasions as well as casual get togethers with friends. I can't get to their regular Thursday Gourmet Pizza Nights as often as I'd like, but the Potato Bacon Gourmet Pizza is a hands down winner for me. In the summer their patio is a lovely place to enjoy a lunch with friends or special dessert and coffee after an evening meal.

No matter when we go we need to pay special attention to one member of our family who requires a gluten-free meal and not only does this restaurant offer to alter menu items to make them safe, but it allows us to order simple meals off-menu and they completely understand the need for the preparation to be carried out in an appropriate environment with clean tools, etc.

This restaurant's owner has been in business long enough to offer the variety people seek without losing the attention to detail that makes every customer feel special. Don't drive by this restaurant no matter the time of year!
