This is a stand by for us. They are always busy because the food is good and reasonable. Love their outdoor seating in the summer months. Large bar area with several tvs for sports viewing. They have a large following and happy hour crowd

Family oriented, so nice crowd - no "rowdies". Food is always fabulous - always feel "at home" there. Pricing reasonable. Atmosphere is fun - like an outdoor picnic!

You really get your money's worth here. We ate here 2 nights in a row on our trip. Both times the service was great, and the food very good. We had the Prime Rib special, cooked perfectly, and the second night a burger and pasta. There is something for everyone on their menu, with a lot of variety and good... More

I have now eaten at Backyard grill twice. The food is nothing to write home about. Perfectly tolerable, certainly not bad. If anything, I think their menu is too large which renders them incapable of true excellence. They have a phenomenal beer selection and some cute-sy Wisconsin/Packet/etc specialty drinks along with all the classics any bar can make you. Their... More

I have eaten many items on Back Yard's menu and all have a very unique and enjoyable flavor. Not the SOS of chain restaurants. Their wraps are excellent and their oriental dishes very crisp and nutritious. Great patio for nice days and the service is always on the spot.

The locals talk about what a bunch of nice people the Trepaniers are, but that doesn't translate into a good place to eat. The place is always packed, but I have never received any food that was above marginal.

Our group of about 14 sat at 2 tables near each other. No problem when we asked for separate bills. Food was great. It was my wife and mine anniversary. A few in the group knew about it, and the waitress brought us a small cake with a candle to share with the group. What a surprise! They were so... More

Backyard Grill is always solid. (An aunt likes it, and it's easy access for her with her walker.) The basics are usually solid, although they seem to do chicken better than beef/burgers. Appetizers are usually good too. They don't do "fancy" all that well, so skip the "creative" sounding dinners and specials and go with the stand bys.
