Headed into Smithville to attend an Art show at Mosaic Downtown and had 2 different people tell us we should go to The Back Door Cafe for dinner!
We made a reservation, a good thing on a Saturday night, and were seated promptly upon arrival. Service for us that night was great. The Chef/Owners daughter served us and was very helpful in guiding us through the choices. Yes, the menu is limited. I would rather have a choice a few good and fresh items anyway. We both ordered the Filet with a demi-glace, it came with a salad which was so fresh and yummy...loved the sprouts;) roast potatoes and a sauté of mixed veg. Our steaks were ordered medium rare and both were perfectly done. We had Jack Daniels Chocolate pie and Creme Brûlée for dessert. The wine list was small but good. We ordered a bottle of (Spanish) Atteca Old Vines Grenache 2011 which was the perfect choice.
The bad news? After next week the place will close for the summer. The Good news? They re-open in September...and we will be back!
