Good steak on Tuesday nights and two dollar tacos

Only been there once but the steak on Tuesday night is their specialty a complete dinner for under $20. My wife enjoyed the two dollar tacos. Great location on the lake with the ample parking for our big boat. I saw also a lot of our friends there. I've heard mixed reviews on the food but it seems... read more

The chicken fried steak was gray - yes, gray. And it tasted as bland as it looked. I order cfs any time I can. This is by far the worst I've had. The batter was tasty enough but it separated from the meat early on. My son had the chicken strips. It's the first time in his short life that... More

We stopped by because of the "great food" sign, just to try someplace different. This is a bar that serves food. There is an inside section and a section "out on an open porch". We sat inside, not realizing it is a smoking establishment. I had the Build Your Own Burger, and it was quite good. I choose a side... More

The Back Porch has a great location on the lake, docks, and lots of open air. But the food is only so-so and the prices are higher than expected. The appetizer sampler was good (onion rings, cheese sticks, fried pickles). The crawfish was average and the cobb salad was VERY salty (from the bacon, smoked turkey and ranch). The bacon,... More

Biggest complaint I have here is the smoke..ugh...it's a good local hangout but over the years it has come and gone more than once and when management is good it's good but when it bad it's terrible. Just wish they would finally ban smoking would be much better place in my opinion. The crowd later in the evening has a... More

My family and I went to enjoy the Tuesday night steak night for the first time this year. We were regulars last year. The prices have skyrocketed, steak was loaded with fat, the service was horrible. As always, they are understaffed. This place is not worth the wait and we will not be going back. There are much better places... More

Shake it up at this place and you will win me back. Potential! Bring in local bands, clean the place and redo the tables and chairs (and replace the cracked windows). Extend the bar to an inside and outside location. Don't reduce the summer menu to the mini menu for fall/winter. Utilize the deck. Have game time to include games... More

The food here was OK. Being right on the lake, it could be a fun place to eat and watch the ducks and the boaters. I gave it a poor rating because of their smoking policy. There is no place there where you can sit and not be surrounded by smoke from all the smokers. The non-smoking section is inside... More
