Always pretty well a wonderful meal whether lunch or dinner. It was very busy but waitress took good care of us and owner even popped by to make sure things were fine. Return visit definitely in the cards.

We had dinner at Eddingtons on the patio in mid-June before an evening show at the Huron County Playhouse. I had the Yellow Lake Perch (photo) and my husband had the Chicken Appleby. Both were excellent. Server was knowledgeable and efficient. Expensive but worth it.More

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.
