Good standards for the brunches we have had there. Nothing exciting, but friendly, warm service and consistently good food. You get want you expect.

A Darien staple for the past two decades. Recently closed and reopened as Third Rail. Place needed renovations and some resuscitation of menu - which it received. Prices have also increased.

I'm a huge fan of this place. For one thing, it's not summer for my family until the 5 of us eat outside at Backstreet and have steak and hot fudge sundaes. I like the fact that so many items on the menu remain there for years, items you can't get anywhere else, such as Mayport salad, veal lugano, and... More

When we recently wanted to take guests out for a special dinner, we chose Backstreet. We have been enjoying their delicious food for years and there is no better place to go for a special meal. Our guests agreed completely. The appetizers, entrees and wines were all excellent. The restaurant is small and the service generally friendly and attentive making... More

Backstreet was the go to place for much of Darien. Very solid, good menu. Service always excellent. The decor hasn't been updated since opening several decades ago. Menu remains the same too. But the food also remains good.

In season you can even get shad roe. Big dining terrace with heat lamps ofr the summer months. Old Dariewn hangs out here becuase it is so... More

Backstreet has a solid menu and good location, making it a regular stop for us year round. Patio dining makes it even better in the warmer months, but you can't go wrong anytime. Was just back during Restaurant Week and had another great meal, short rib ravioli were super tasty and the stuffed chicken over angel hair was also great.... More

It has changed a bit in twenty years - when the ownership changed several years ago so did the french fries :( I always try to make it here - for breakfast or dinner - I just have a habit of repeating old places. The bar is small the dining room is nice and they have great outdoor seating. It... More
