“Disappointing Dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

It had been quite a while since going to the Backyard Grill. Entering the restaurant I saw they've done a lot of rennovation. What used to be the dining area is now open to the bar and the patio. The dining area is now in what looks like a new area that was probably the unit next door. We were greeted in a reasonable amount of time. We ordered glasses of wine. The pours were small for the price paid. The meals arrived. I ordered Microbrew Battered Fish (Fish and Chips). The batter had little flavor. The cod was OK. The french fries were also OK. The cole slaw needs more salt and pepper seasoning. My companion ordered the sirloin steak. It was prepared medium as ordered. It had a sauce on it that tasted like bullion cubes and was very salty. The mashed potatoes had little flavor and were mashed using the cooking water rather than milk and butter. Since the meals were disappointing neither of us were willing to try a dessert. It had been a while since I was last at this restaurant and it's likely to be a long time before returning. There are a lot of other restaurants nearby where the food is much better.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

This restaurant was conveniently located near our hotel. I had the margarita flat bread which was delicious. The flat bread was the perfect texture and cooked perfectly. My fiance had the ribs and they were delicious. The meat fell right off the bone. Nachos were crispy and plentiful.

“Sketchy service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The bar area was hopping (it was March 16th and St. Patrick's Day Weekend). Very loud and smoky. The hostess stand is located in the bar area so you have to go through the bar area to be seated in the dining room. Good news -- you can't hear the bar noise in the restaurant. It was busier this Saturday compared to the last time we visited. The restaurant got about 2/3 full at it busiest (still not good for a Saturday night). Service started at very prompt with drink and food orders. We forgot to request the bread (it is wonderful but you must request it or they don't bring it). The onion soup I ordered had lots of cheese on it but no piece of bread at the bottom (as most do) and very few pieces of onion in it. My Caesar Salad was good. My companions liked the fish and chips (on special) and the veggie wrap (huge portion). After our food came our waiter lost interest in us. Had to ask for a water refill and we didn't see him again til he brought our check. Didn't ask if we wanted coffee or dessert. We ended up sitting there and visiting and was never once checked on again (perhaps we changed our mind for coffee or dessert). Ended up going to Milwaukee Custard in the same area for dessert. Just don't understand why the service is so inconsistent. They have good food though!
