Good bar food!

Kids had pizza and said it was very good. Had wings and some fries oysters. It was very good. They have a few beers on tap, wish they had more, is my only complaint.

I've been going here for years and the food is always fresh, hot and fabulous. Don't expect fine dining, just good food at a reasonable price. The soups are all homemade and they usually have 5-7 to choose from. The wraps are great and the Buffalo shrimp are the bomb!!! Also, try something that's not even on the menu. Ask... More

Been going to this place for years ever since there old building. The staff has always been great. They have good wings and the kids love there menu. My favorite is to get the big appetizer of shrimp and roll in the bbq garlic. Dang it's good. Only downside to this place is have to wait on table sometimes.

Good food, good drinks, good employees. I have taken out from there several times, and the order is always right. The bar is always hopping and the servers are great.

Similar to many pubs in the area, Backstreets is a festive bar and grill with friendly service. They have excellent burgers and large varieties of beers.

Can be a little busy and noisy but food is fine Good beer selection and the menu has something for most peoples tastes Wine selection is a little limited but not poor. Service can be a bit sketchy but in general OK
