The Back 40 was a little difficult to find, but only because it's a little off the beaten path. My husband, sister and brother-in-law and I ate there Sunday, January 31st. We were skeptical after reading the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. The resturant is...More

Prices are very reasonable and the food is fresh and very tasty. I really appreciated that they didn't overwhelm the fresh taste with garlic. The service is wonderful.

This is a small unique eating place. It is located away from everything else. There is limited parking at this place. You have to back out of the parking lot to get out. The food is good.

It's a very casual, cute little place. One of those locations that reminds you that part of the charm of St. Aug is the charming little homes turned into businesses. We tried the jerk chicken and pineapple quesadilla appetizer and it was delightful; then, we...More
