We stopped in for lunch recently. The menu is limited, but dont let that delay you...the meals we ordered and shared were very good. The house made sausage as a sandwich, and burger were just as we ordered them. Sides of a bean salad and another of greens, were all part of the plate. We did start with the Onion... More

A little lie... Chairs are wood and could be more comfortable but the ambiance and friendliness of the place make up for it all, then there is the food... Excellent ... A nice little gem

Lousy service, lousy food and too many apologies from the wait staff. They are closed Tues and Wed, so our server said they run out of a lot on Monday nights.

Absolutely lovely meal with locally sourced produce. Though Forestville is such a tiny place its lucky to have a couple of really excellent restaurants, Backyard being one of them.

Forestville is a really small town so it’s hard to miss the Backyard. Food was good and portions were huge but there was not a huge variety. I had their special fried chicken dinner which came with a huge salad and apple crisp dessert. We split the salad into 3, and dessert was more than enough for 2. My husband... More

The salad was great and a nice selections of breads were slightly warm and the olives were good. The pickled vegetables were a nice touch that included some very unique items: mustard seeds, green...

My husband and I literally tried this place on a whim on a road trip to the coast and boy were we delightfully surprised. The staff was very friendly and courteous and the food was all fresh, unique and delicious. We will definitely have to be sure to make it part of another road trip. The onion rings were amazing!!

Unique café style restaurant where, if you wish, you can watch owner/chef Dan and his kitchen crew expertly execute meals with great taste and superb presentation. The adult's choices from the menu this evening were, Pork Milanese...Filet, Giving Garden Roasted Broccoli entree and Chicken Pot Pie. The pork entrée was prepared under arugala ++ salad and served with a side... More

We recently spent time at the Farmhouse B and B. Our room wasn't ready so the staff called ahead and made us a reservation for lunch. We cannot say enough about the service, food, wine and especially the dessert. Our server was fantastic, and we apologize for not mentioning her name. The food was fantastic. Chardonnay wine, well what can... More
