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

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.

40 minute wait on a Thursday night... Does that tell you anything? We haven't even gotten to our main course yet and I just had to post! All of the staff (hostess, bartender & waitress) were awesome! The appetizers are delicious! Ribeye and ribs just arrived and my mouth is watering! Try it!!!

Great food, not to fond of new building. The new building isn't any bigger than old and the layout is not very customer friendly. Love the food!!

We have went to Backstreets several times over the last couple months. So this review is an compilation of those different experiences. Positives: -Several good items on the menu particularly the Reuben. Its very tender, tasty, and a good portion. The mixed vegetables are grilled and tasty without overcooking. -Its locally owned which is always a plus in my book... More
