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.

Got the Cajun burger and backyard burger, both bursting with unique flavors. Staff was prompt friendly and knew the menu and filled us in on a little history of the place, very cool! Nice joint, cute atmosphere and loved the many different option choices. The strawberry shortcake was melt in your mouth delicious that finished us off. Yum!

We came to Backyard for dinner. Their Tuesday kids special can't be beat. The burgers are the best around. 1/2 pound real wood smoked you won't find a better burger. My sons puts it perfectly and he's 7: Backyard is the best food around, it tastes so good. It's my favorite place to go!

The Backyard Bar and grill provided a free steak dinner for all veterans on Veterans Day. The steak was delicious and cooked just the way I like it. The service was great and was treated like a king .
