Great atmosphere but drinks are expensive and service sucks

We always go here when we don't feel like leaving Boynton but we want to go out. Service is terrible, I will say right off the bat. Do not expect a lot with it. Bartenders are slow and waitstaff consists of a bunch of inexperienced kids. The food is good, standard bar type food and the drinks... read more

The place is a dump. It it rains you are done. The food is cooked in a Winnebego. I am not kidding. Lot's of drunks.

The Backyard has been silent and dark since Christmas. I think it has finally been killed by the constant FEC freight trains and the looming construction of All Aboard Florida. Started off good but has gone downhill ever since.

Backyard is an outdoor bar with lighted palm trees of all colors. Drinks are about the same price as any local bar but only half as good. Just ok when there is not much else to do.

Typical tropical outdoor bar with bench seating, two bars, and really entertaining music most nights. Food is served from an Airstream trailer and varies in quality, sometime it's better than others. Beer selection is eclectic and local beers are always available.

You can tell from the moment you drive into the parking lot that this place is fun. There are palm trees lighting up the parking lot and you can hear the music as you walk in. The menu is a bit limited and I've never eaten there, but have stopped in for drinks a few times. Recently (October 2015), I... More

I liked the place and it's location. Is situated on the east side of town near where I lived almost a decade ago. I liked the atmosphere, the music sound was awful though. The band that played the night I visited covered Rage Against The Machine and STP which I like. It seems like a local spot with regular drunka... More

Great bar to hear live music. New management came in about 4 weeks ago and promised to be more customer friendly, new staff and better service. Been back twice, service has gotten worse (if that was even possible) and last night they couldn't handle food service and stopped taking orders before 8:30. Hoping they can back in the groove for...

Good service and entertainment (live bands). It's a laid back bar a little hidden from main road. Staff is friendly . Food is just ok but not recommended if you want a good meal. I've had the hamburgers a couple times, just to get accurate review. Prices are high for what you get. I actually had to cancel my order... More

This is a fun place to listen to bands play early in the evening. I love that it's outside with a Tiki hut.
