“Nees to be updated”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Backstreet was the go to place for much of Darien. Very solid, good menu. Service always excellent. The decor hasn't been updated since opening several decades ago. Menu remains the same too. But the food also remains good.

“Old Darien at its Best”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Not elegant but great food and reasonable prices.
Good specials every day and the food from their steak with blue cheese to their calves liver is cooked to order.
Great soups and brunches.
In season you can even get shad roe.
Big dining terrace with heat lamps ofr the summer months.
Old Dariewn hangs out here becuase it is so dpeendabe.

“A great bet for dinner”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Backstreet has a solid menu and good location, making it a regular stop for us year round. Patio dining makes it even better in the warmer months, but you can't go wrong anytime. Was just back during Restaurant Week and had another great meal, short rib ravioli were super tasty and the stuffed chicken over angel hair was also great. and who doesn't like Mud Cake with your choice of ice cream (Choclate for me and Vanilla for Donna)!! We'll be back again soon.
