We’d give a zero star if we could. We DO NOT recommend this place. What we experienced yesterday was beyond belief. An... unmasked waiter came to take our order. He admonished us for wearing masks and said something about Chinese spewing lies. When he brought the food out, he pointed to our masks, asking “What’s this?” demanding an explanation to the reason we wear masks. We should have left right then, but we stayed and ate the mediocre mussel appetizer with a fourth of the mussel shells not opened or broken. We left without ordering our full meals and don’t intend of ever coming back.read more

Customer service is number one here. The food is top notch, great atmosphere, go early to have conversation. When the... music starts about 9pm, it gets loud. Visit the outside deck (whether permitting), it is a great experience. If something isn't right, let them know, they'll do everything possible to make you a happy customer. You'll revisit, once you've been there.read more

I’m only giving one star because it won’t let me give zero. I used to come here often and had a great time. I will... never go to backyard bar and grill EVER AGAIN. I was on my way to meet some friends— until these friends weren’t allowed in because they weren’t American enough. Or what he meant “not white enough” I am completely disgusted by this managers behavior. Really backyard? YOU SUCK!read more

All three were excellent choices, food delicious hot fresh. Customer service was excellent as well.read more

The food is good. Try the weekend brunch. The outdoor bar allows smoking, which is a bummer if you are seated near by.

Great place to stop by after work for happy hour and good food and drink specials! The combo fajitas🍖🍗🍤 was excellent... and cooked just right. The extra ingredients & fixings 🌶️🍅🧀were fresh, the rail drinks were inexpensive, the chicken tenders with fries were also cooked 👌 Outside patio seating is available and the service and staff are friendly here. This is the 3rd time I've been here within the last 2 years and so far so good, I will be back for sure 👍read more

We went on a Saturday afternoon, place didn’t seem too full. Accommodates lots of a outdoor seating and event though we... sat indoors, we had 6 feet from us and others. Service was eh. It took a while for our waiter to come take our drink orders then our food then for the food to come out. Fish tacos were awesome.read more

This place is great for drinks and fun but don’t count it out for a great dinner. It’s a super place with great options... during Covid restrictions. Awesome outdoor, covered seating with heaters and TVs. Even brought my teen tonight for a fantastic meal and she loved it. The food is beautifully made, fresh and delicious. You can tell that they really want everyone to enjoy their experience. Our server, Summer, was personable, fun and attentive to our every need. If you need outta the house...stop here. You won’t be disappointed.read more

In town for a professional conference and this was the perfect place for a group of educators to gather and let our... hair down. It was a rather large group of us that came and went, but the servers and manager treated us well, and got the food and drinks out in a timely manner. Everything tasted great. I recommended it to others at the conference, and I would return if in town again.read more

A friend and I ate here yesterday for lunch. This was my first visit. The food was excellent! I ordered a cheeseburger... with provolone, mushrooms, bacon and bbq sauce. It was delicious and the burger was cooked perfectly! The fries were also hot and fresh. As an iced tea lover I was very happy that they had real brewed iced tea, not out of a gun 🙂 And the server brought plenty of lemons which I always appreciate. The service was excellent and although it was very hot out, eating on the patio was pleasant since they had many large fans. I will definitely go back!read more

Great atmosphere. Lots of menu choices at reasonable prices. Taco Tuesday got me a $3 soft taco that was a good... starter. I had the Louisiana Cajun Tilapia. Fish was flake and flavorable. Tiger shrimp were delish and along with the fresh mashed potatoes and vegetables made a great filling meal. The hot rolls and soft butter also a treat. All in all I would recommend and try again.read more

Good spot to catch a Skins game! Not many in the area that support the team regularly. I was a regular at a competitor... nearby but have made this my new spot. Inside bartenders are awesome. Food is great. Smoking area outside patio with TVs and enclosed during winter. Would be 5 star but bartender outside is inattentive and actually have to chase him down.read more

Just moved to the area a few months ago and tried this place for the first time tonight. Pasta dishes were great. My... husband got a steak with veggies and mashed potatoes. The veggies and potatoes literally tasted like they were from a tv dinner meal except with less flavor. The steak was cooked well and very tender but had no flavor. It was my husband's idea to try this place for dinner and he was sadly disappointed. My biggest concern is that the entire establishment reeks of cigarette smoke. My children even commented on the smell. I wanted to leave as soon as we walked in because of it but decided to stay since it was already past regular dinner time. I could literally TASTE the cigarette smoke as I was breathing, and can still smell it an hour after leaving the restaurant. Needless to say, we will not be return customers.read more

I had a great time here and I really like the Buffalo Chicken flatbread. I noticed that the buffalo chicken flatbread... isn't available in the online ordering app. I'd order to go pretty often if you added it. Edit: Just wanted to remind you folks that I'd be ordering the Buffalo Chicken flatbread if it were available on the online menu. I've probably looked to order it 6-7 times since I originally posted my review, take my money! I know I can call but I feel like a bother.read more

I am changing my review from 3 stars to 5 stars. The owner was kind enough to have a conversation with me offline and... invited me to try the restaurant again. After having gone for a second visit, it is very clear to me that I caught their restaurant on a bad day. Everything about this latest visit was perfect. From the friendliness of the hostess to final bite, it was as anyone would want it to be. Our server was prompt, attentive, and had a great personality. Management checked on our meal to see if there was anything we needed. There was a good lunch crowd there but we never felt ignored. The restaurant was very clean and many people chose to eat outside. The food was excellent. It was served quickly and it was exactly what we wanted. So, for those of you who post honest reviews and the ownership or management reach out to you and invite you back, I think you owe it to yourself to give that place another shot. You may find out like I did that maybe that establishment was just having a down day. Thank you to the ownership, management, and staff for a great meal and an enjoyable experience.read more

Service is good, but food was just so-so. Now the caveat there is that I didn't get standard American fare, which is... their supposed specialty, I got a tuna sashimi app and it wasn't terrible, but it was dry and not super flavorful. I would go back to try again as it seems like a fun place, at the very least.read more

We went to try it because of the proximity to the custard stand and it had outdoor seating on a gorgeous night. To be... clear, I wasn't expecting more than 2 stars because it seemed more like a bar. The music was a little loud which muffled some parts of conversations, but the food... it was surprisingly good. We ordered the steak ceaser salad (flagged as house specialty) and sirloin tips. The tender steak had a great grilled taste and not overdone. I definitely plan to go back.read more

You might find better food in some sort of similar establishment nearby. You won't find better service. The ultimate... bonus is the ability to enjoy a cigar and drink which is next to impossible to have. Great service, a wide selection of good food and plenty of options for television, even if they need to change it from an infomercial when it's accidentally playing. You'll even find it appropriate to take kids for their specials or kids meals. I'd highly recommend.read more

We enjoy the food and atmosphere at Backyard Grill. Today we had a new server, and he forgot to order my entree... (blackened shrimp tacos). It finally arrived. It was worth waiting for. I had an entertainment book coupon and the manager had to see the code. Several times she called me honey, which I did not care for. Overall our experience was good.read more
