“Late Wednesday night dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We did a local park/stay/fly. Needed dinner when we got into town and chose this place. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was like a happy hour sports bar type place. Thoroughly enjoyed our time.

“Great Patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

I was in Chantilly on business and Backyard Grill was across the street from my hotel. It was Monday night during football season and I was both hungry and thirsty. I didn't think I could go wrong at a sports bar ...and I didn't at Backyard.

The patio is amazing. It is huge and has two bars and a bunch of flat screens. I didn't experience the "stale beer" smell that one of the reviewers mentioned but, I can see how it is possible. The crowd was a mix of young professionals and football fans and everyone got along.

I sat at the bar. The bartender was excellent. She remembered my name and kept my beer glass full. The beer selection is mediocre. Sam Adams seasonal was about the best thing going.

I had the Backyard Burger. A burger topped with bacon, BBQ, mushrooms & provolone cheese Served on ciabatta bread. It was cooked medium rare and pretty tasty. It came with onion rings, which, if not home made, were excellent none the less.

I'll definitely come again.

“Not what it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We moved back to the area after being gone for 2 yrs and had enjoyed several meals here in the past. Went to lunch a couple weeks ago and found it is not what is used to be. The menu selection is alot smalled. The service was slow but only because I think they were short staffed for a busy lunch time. The food was average. Will give it another try for dinner and see how that goes.

“Friends Birthday”

Food was good specially chicken dishes were really great and enjoyed time over there. I felt this is place is not for family as all around smoke, beer, loud music :) but still like to visit sometime again with friends.

“Glad we found this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Ate here after traveling all day. We ate in the dining room and the food was very good. We then moved to the large bar area in the next room and unfortunately, a DJ was blasting loud rap music and rap music videos were playing over all of their TVs. They advertised a sports bar, but it was much more of a club atmosphere. They also had a gorgeous outdoor patio and bar but it was very windy and rainy so we were not able to use it.
