I went to the Back Forty to check out the bar...and it is impressive, their back-bar is original to the building and surely dates back to the 1940's. The mixed drink I ordered was great. The Back Forty has a business model that is focusing more on the food/restaurant demographic and it's working. The food is supposed to be locally obtained, and then all prepared on the premises. The crowd while I was having my drink was there having lunch and the food did look quite good !!! The bartender told me that they even have Prime Rib on Saturday nites (maybe even Friday nites, I don't remember for sure ??). Anyways, you will certainly do right by yourself if you stop in to have a drink or a meal...or both for that matter. Friendly folks, great service, super nice atmosphere, quality cuisine !!! Enjoy !!!

They have really good food. I have only tried a few things but I am sure nothing would disappoint. Great wings with good flavor!

A great country bar and grill. Serves 7 nights a week. A surprising large selection on menu. Tuesday is taco night and can get very busy with some wait.

One of the best burgers I've ever had. My friends wife had chicken fingers that were equally as good. The bar had great prices and fun atmosphere. The outdoor patio was off the hook. A deck and a patio, and a stage for live music. All around great venue.
