New Ownership, New decor, gourmet cuisine

So the restaurant has a new flare now. The first thing that strikes you when you walk in is the new décor. it is more " up to date " and makes it feel so much cleaner. we went there last Friday night and it was extremely busy but we were sat promptly and our server ( Kyle ) took... read more

New owners with pretty much the same food. Special of lobster is greatly over priced. Got sea bass which was not fresh. Got the escargot which was excellent. Same old tired wine list. They need to spruce up the menu and wine list if you are going to charge that much for only just satsifactory food

We only discovered this place last month and have already been back twice. The food is plated beautiful and taste even better. The lobster bisque soup is the best I have ever had. A little expensive but it keeps the craziness you have to deal with at other places away.

My family and I recently ate at The Back Burner for lunch. I had been many times over the years, for lunch, and had always had a good meal there. However, this most recent excursion topped all other dining experiences I have had at The Back Burner. We had a party of eight people and I do believe one of... More

The food is very good, and the atmosphere is nice, but it seems a little pricey for the product. Nice wine list.

I've been to many French Fine Dining restaurants in my day. Normally, I would write a detailed review about my experience. To be perfectly honest, it's not worth my time or money. My salad had so much water on it, I didn't even drink from my water glass. The saffron sauce tasted like White Wine Sauce, the lobster was over... More

We have moved about a year ago from Asheville, NC and discovered this place through friends from church. We absolutely LOVED IT !!! The food was amazing and the service was good as well. My wife ordered the Gazpacho and I had the crab cakes. My wife said it was the best Gazpacho she's ever had and my crab cakes... More

Always delicious. The crab salad rocks. Filet with cracked pepper is yummy. Price is a little high but worth it at the first bite

While not an inexpensive spot, the food is worth paying a few extra dollars for. We tried the crab cakes (very good), the escargot (outstanding), the scallops (very good), the duck breast (very good) and the blueberry cheesecake (very good). The wine list was acceptable and the service was decent. We liked the converted small house atmosphere but it can... More

This restaurant is a gem hiding in the Ingleside Village area of Macon. A wonderful intimate little place with delectible culinary delights awaits you. I truly enjoyed my experience here. For a large party make reservations in advance and ask for the private dining room. It is a great place to enjoy the company of friends!
