Great local establishment

This appears to be the hot spot in Fond du Lac. No matter who we are with, the Backyard always comes up for a place for good food at reasonable prices. I had the chicken with bacon sandwich and it was big and tasty.

We've gone to the restaurant many times for lunch and we prefer the lunch menu. Food's always good on the lunch menu and service and the food is quick. We also like eating at the bar which is usually quicker seating and we prefer the atmosphere.

I've enjoyed their portabella mushrooms sandwich with caramelized onions several times. I love the sandwich! I especially enjoy going there in the summer to enjoy their patio while eating. It's a nice place to go with friends.

Passing thru town we stopped to eat it's just off the 23/151 junction. Excellent food. Fast and friendly service. The bar had a great selection of beer including my favorite Magners. This will be our on the road food stop from now on.

We went to a friend's wake and needed a little uplift. We get it and then some. This place is great! Bartender Keith is pleasant, fun and had us smiling in a matter of moments. The wings were spectacular (we only wanted a light bite). The number of tap beers is fantastic and Keith pours a perfect black and blue.... More
