After spending the morning in the Baseball Hall of Fame, we broke for lunch at Back Alley Grille. I enjoyed the nachos and my husband had a grilled cheese sandwich.

The best thing about this place is that is across the street from the Hall of Fame. Went there with my wife and three kids ages 10, 10 and 12 for lunch. With tip lunch cost a hundred dollars. The food wasn't bad...my wife had a seasoned catfish Po' boy sandwich. The fish covered about half of the bread, pretty... More

Stopped in for lunch while visiting Baseball Hall of Fame, across the street (down an alley). Off the congestion of the Main Street. Not crowded, friendly staff, fast service. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious, like I made it at home. Grilled cheese was extra yummy ( not the average " like mom used to make"). Decor was cute. Definitely... More

There were 6 of us for dinner the evening of October 8, 2014. The service was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and did an outstanding job, especially considering it was busy this evening and it appeared that she was the only one working. She kept the pace pleasant, we were not rushed nor did we have to sit waiting for... More

Just off Main St. If you want a quiet place to eat in a busy village try this place. Waitress was attentive.

Just ate at Back Ally after visiting Baseball Hall of Fame. Good food. Nice selection. I had pastrami reuben that was very good. Sweet potato fries were not hot. My father had French dip sandwich. Very good. Decor was a fun western/cowboy theme. Prices were reasonable. Would definitely go back!!

Just off Main Street, this restaurant offers good meals at fair prices with generous portion. The bathrooms are a bit cramped and outdated.

Really Large Menu and Beverage Choices for a Cooperstown Local restaurant. I had the Steak Fajitas and it was tasty and a well valued meal. The draft beer selections were very good as well as the wines. I recommend it for a family dinner or with friends as there is plenty of room and something for everyone.

Overall the food was good and reasonably priced. Grilled Cheese, Reuben, and Popcorn Shrimp Wrap were good sized, and adequate for our lunch needs. Total bill for four with two beers was $48.11. Pretty good for a lunch in Cooperstown during the season. However, we got stuck with the waitress who was having "one of those days". Long story short,... More
