They have a very good fish fry on Friday night. The portions are large and the food is well cooked. The selection is large and they have one of the best fried mushrooms around.

Positively the best onion rings in town. Always a fun place to go. Busy though so we normally get take out on the weekends due to the wait.

This place really needs to be featured on one of those “Best Foods” shows or where they show you all the great food throughout the country. First off the “Schmitty Style Wings” are the best I have ever had. They have the perfect amount of fire and flavor. I had the BBQ Sampler(A special) and it was wonderful! This place... More

My favorite local restaurant. Food is always good and very comfortable atmosphere. The prices are always very reasonable. I get the same veggie salad that is not on the menu every time I go but there are plenty of good options for my friends.

Backyard doesnt seem to want to cater to its customers. Any change in orders seem to be ignored and the fish for the fish fry always seems to come cold. Not a place I would recommend or go back to.
