My girlfriend and her family dine her frequently. To her this place is like cheers...everyone knows your name. The staff is great and usually in a great mood. Food is delicious, just like somethin you're grillin in your backyard with your friends. Always a good stop.

My favorite local restaurant. Food is always good and very comfortable atmosphere. The prices are always very reasonable. I get the same veggie salad that is not on the menu every time I go but there are plenty of good options for my friends.

Went out to dinner with my wife and children and their spouses for my son on leave from the military. In hindsight what is like to pick a better place that would have been more memorable. the food was average in taste but they did give you ample portions. The waitress we had was very slow never checked on us we had to find her a refills for anything else we needed. She needs to learn customer service and what a smile is.

Backyard doesnt seem to want to cater to its customers. Any change in orders seem to be ignored and the fish for the fish fry always seems to come cold. Not a place I would recommend or go back to.

Great service, fast and friendly but didn't rush us. Menu was broad and priced right. There were a couple specials for a great price. I think there were 4 soup choices too. We had burgers, ribs and steak. Everything was perfect. Had an app platter and cinnamon apple dessert that was warmed with ice cream. It was wonderful! We were looking for a local place that had a friendly feel and that's exactly what we got. Will definitely go back again!
