About Us


In 1954 Ed and Ruth McDevitt had a dream of establishing the first full-scale restaurant and cocktail lounge in the newly developing turnpike interchange area north of Bedford.  While the McDevitts were well-known in the local business community, some predicted their dream was too risky and would quickly turn to failure.

Spending $100,000 on the state-of-the-art building, and opening in the “off-season”, away from historic downtown Bedford, seemed to others a recipe for disaster.  But on November 9, 1954, Mr. and Mrs. McDevitt watched their dream come to fruition and opened the doors to Ed’s Steak House.  Today, Ed’s is highly regarded and still going strong!  It is a popular dining spot for local patrons and travelers alike, many making a point of stopping for a great meal even if just passing through town.

At a time when businesses quickly come and go, current owners, Tom, Kathy, Jason and Kim McDevitt, are especially proud that the business has remained family-owned and operated since 1954.  While Ed’s has seen many changes over the years, one thing has always remained the same; great food at affordable prices.  With a staff of 65, the McDevitt family carries-on that legacy, continually striving to improve the restaurant’s menu and service.

Offering wide variety Steaks, Seafood, Salads, Sandwiches, Kids’ Menu, and Bar service, there is something for everyone!  Enjoy lunch with business associates, bring the family for dinner, or relax with a drink in our Bar.

Without our loyal patrons and staff, we could not have experienced so many wonderful years of business in Bedford County.  We look forward to serving you for many more to come!
