No matter how often we go by the Backyard Grill; the food is always fantastic. Whether it's at night or during lunchtime. They do a great job with their specials and with a wide variety of menu items. Their pricing is reasonable. From salads to wraps to sandwiches to full meals, you can't go wrong here. And they are economical!... More

Excellent food, friendly staff and neat atmosphere. Friday dinner was a bit of a wait but worth it. Large tap beer selection from known beers to great local flavors

Selected from TripAdvisors reviews and it was great. Friendly service, excellent food, wide selection of draft beers, and reasonable prices. I had prime rib which was lean, done perfectly, tender and flavorful. My wife had the three cheese potato soup and the filet mignon and both were fabulous. Very popular place and no reservations, so it may involve a wait... More

My husband and I were traveling through Wisconsin and stopped for lunch. Cute decor and really friendly service. Husband loved his pan fried fish sandwich . I had the prime rib panini, also good. For us though the star of the meal were the dipping sauces. Great for my sandwich and amazing for the onion rings.

My wife and I have eaten at Backyard many times and have always gotten great food. The staff is courteous, it has great bartenders and there is always room to park as it is located near a grocery store. Highly recommended!

While visiting friends in FDL, I was treated to a Backyard experience. The Resturant was full, but we were still seated right away. We only had to wait a minute for the server. Drinks and food were prompt and the food was served hot, and everyone at the table enjoyed. Portions were ample and there was leftovers which we did... More

My wife and I recently visited the grill for lunch. I had the 10 oz ribeye and she, the shrimp skewers. Both were well-seasoned and my steak perfectly cooked to order. While the hostess was all business, the waitress was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The menu is varied and features a number of fish dishes that I will... More
