This is the sister restaurant to the Cooperstown Diner. We figured the food would be just as food but learned that it's probably pretty hard to mess up breakfast (Diner), the Back Alley Grille was another story. The service was good but the food left me wishing I had cooked at home. We ordered the ribeye and it left much... More

We came here with my sons baseball team before visiting the Hall of Fame. The location is convenient, and the food was decent. My daughter had the chili and really liked it. My son and other daughter had chicken tenders, and they both liked them. My husband and I had sandwiches, grilled chicken and grilled cheese. Both of which were... More

We had walked by this after lunch, so we decided to try it for dinner. We were a party of 7. The hostess was very nice. We were seated quickly upstairs in the main bar area. Our server was also the bartender. She was more interested in talking with the men at the bar than waiting on us. When we... More

Food was okay. My husband enjoyed his hot dog with Mac and cheese. My taco salad was fine but nothing special. Each fountain soda is charged for separately which we didn't know when the waitress offered my husband a refill. For $2.95 a piece I'd say the sodas are overpriced in the first place. He could have had a couple... More

This restaurant is tucked away on an alley, just across from the Baseball Hall of Fame. Its convenient location surely brings it a ton of business, and they don't need to try too hard to please. As a result, it seems, both the food and the service is mediocre. Our meal, nothing more than hot dogs and sandwiches, took way... More

Very close to Hall of Fame. Ribeye steak was a little tough, but burgers were great. Fun place to visit after spending time at The HOF.

We had a family group of five and requested bread( one of our group was getting hypoglycemic). Our waitress reported they had none and took a while to get crackers.we even offered to pay for it while we waited-no luck. I was puzzled when my French onion soup arrived with the usual bread in the crock! Entrees were mediocre. There... More

After three hours in the Hall of Fame, my husband, grandsons and I were famished. It was the first place we saw, no time to check reviews...we just headed across the street. My seven year old PROUDLY tackled the half pound chili dog AND fries. My eight year old devoured his fish and chips and guzzled two of "the best... More

This restaurant in literally in the alley, but clean and friendly. Food was good and staff was very friendly, though they could use more help. Prices reasonable for Cooperstown.
