This wonderful restaurant is boarder line fine dining. White tablecloths and real silverware. The chef is the owner and his wife runs the dining room. The good is always wonderfully prepared and the service is top notch. This was our third visit and it never disappoints. I had the sea bass which was amazing and my husband had the prime... More

Fell in love with the family own quint little spot. The food was heavenly and the service was impeccable. Prepared with love and perfection! Parking could be a challenge if it were to be a busy night. It's tucked away in a little corner, still easy to find though. All and all it was a wonderful experience and I hope... More

Cute little place with indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor was unavailable on the cold December night we were there, but the inside is quaint and was decorated very festively for the holidays. The wine list is extensive and moderately priced, and the menu is fun and creative. We had a seafood trip and osso buco for mains and lobster... More

So glad I looked on TA to find this great place! It was just a really pleasant atmosphere - kind of fine dining with a slightly more casual vibe. We did apps, entrees, and desserts and loved everything. You definitely need reservations, at least on the weekend. Some were getting turned away on the Friday evening we were there. Would... More

Located in a wooded area, The Back Burner is top drawer. We arrived for a late lunch. In another room was a group of about 10 ladies sharing a group outing. The food was impeccable. Between the three of us we eventually decided on Shrimp Grits, Grilled Scottish Salmon, and Chicken Caprese. The food, service and atmosphere was relaxing --... More

This place is so quaint and cozy. In all my 21 years of being alive AND living in Macon I had never been here before!! My grandmother and I decided to go and it couldn't have been better. I started with the duck app which was amazing then for our entrees we both got the seafood trio. It was to... More

Awesome food with a quaint atmosphere. We all had different entries all were delish. The deserts were to die for. I like going for lunch and getting fried grouper, so good.

It was a beautiful autumn day so I dined outside. Lots of good choices on the menu but I opted for the grouper. It was delicious with a nice house salad, tasty potatoes and different style hush puppies. I had the (pricey) bread pudding for dessert. It was good but not nearly as good as my mom made 70 years...

While evacuated from the coast due to hurricane Mathew and with time on our hands we looked for a nice restaurant with good reviews. This lives up!. Although tucked away and almost hidden from the street it's worth the effort spent to find it. Food, presentations and service that would make this little jewel a winner just up the road... More

We ate at the Back Burner on Friday night and both of us had a great meal. I had the salmon which melted in my mouth and my husband had the half of lobster special. The food was prepared perfectly and presented very nicely with vegetables and fingerling potatoes. This is a very nice restaurant but is off the beaten... More
