We had a wonderful time! The variety of the lunch is great (waffles, French toast, shrimp, crab, prime rib, fruit, cake, etc). We were having such a good time, we transitioned to the bar area for cocktails. It was a really nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter 10am on Sundays, thereAfter 10am on Sundays, there is no menu.

The fish tacos were excellent and our waiter was very attentive. It was a little chilly, but on a warm day sitting outside would be great. The only negative thing I can say is that it was a bit hard to find but all you have to do is drive to the far back parking lot by the water.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Fun DayOverall was an excellent experience. I was able to easily find dock space for my boat for Sunday brunch. Was spat immediately with a great view of the water. Scott and the bartenders had great customer service and were fun to be around. I recommend Saturday and Sunday brunches!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Sunday BrunchI've been to the Sunday brunch twice now and expect to do so again. A very nice selection of food but could do with addition of a bread selection and toast points for the smoked salmon.

The buffet was excellent and included smoked salmon, made to order omelets,oysters and all your breakfast/brunch favorites! The service was top notch and it could not have been better. This was our first time to the Back Bay Bistro and I would highly recommend it to my friends and family.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat setting, excellent service.Great setting, excellent service.

flowig, however!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA fabulous array of deliciousA fabulous array of delicious food in so many different categories for the Easter brunch. Very attentive servers...and really DID seem to be endlessly pouring the champagne. Our server, Trevor, was especially wonderful in making sure the Easter Bunny didn't miss our table. Lovely to dock the boat and sit outside for Brunch along the water. This is our second consecutive Easter Brunch at the Back Bay...both years were perfect!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper Birthday LuncheonA group of four women celebrating birthdays had a delightful lunch at the Back Bay Bistro. Upon arriving, we were immediately struck by the ambiance. Our waiter was so friendly and attentive, and the food was absolutely delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will definitely return again.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMKleinhans Wine PairingI attended a wine dinner w/Chef Kurt Schaeffer & Sommelier Joey Kleinhans. Of the 9 wines served, I was only underwealmed by one domestic Zin; The rest were outstanding, Especially the Chateau Petitie Bocq and the Sangiovese. The food was excellent: The reduction sauce (served over lamb,) micro greens garnish and artichoke gratin were lovely. The mushroom bisque and the poached scallop with lemon cream sauce were so very delectible. I liked the cheese cake, but could hardly take more than a bite or two after the richness of the meal & would have preferred something lighter. The sauternes served with it was delicious.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA very large group of 20+A very large group of 20+ went last Sunday for a birthday brunch and we had a fantastic experience! The food was delicious and the service was awesome! Will definitely recommend.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch on St. Paddy's DayBrunch on St. Paddy's Day was great. However, table I requested was not available.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet, food was great, viewQuiet, food was great, view is great. It is always nice to sit by the water and have a great meal.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, food meh.I liked the restaurant and it's location. The food was great,but the crab cakes were just horrible. The lighting on the outside for evening dinning was almost nonexistant, and the lacked warmers. The silverware was in far worse condition and in quality that Olive Garden. The fillet mignon was outstanding. This wanna be tamale that accompanied my fillet was just a crime to put it in the same plate as the fillet mignon. The server was outstanding and the supporting staff as well.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Relaxing Sunday AfternoonOur 24 year old daughter loves it. Her boyfriend took her to Sunday Brunch here and she fell in love with it. We had dined here before, but never for Brunch. When we asked what she wanted to do for her birthday, this is where she wanted to go and take some friends. So, my husband and I took my 92 year old mother, our daughter and some of her friends for Sunday brunch for her 24th birthday. EVERYTHING was delicious as usual. We definitely be making it a habit! The food is so fresh and tasty and who doesn't enjoy free flowing champagne...not to mention the beautiful view...=)3/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
