food is good at dinner, not so
much at brunch. Very slow service, below average food, overpriced"

atmophere. Nice food and good looking place"

Quite literally a backyard filled
with dining tables, gnomes and a buddha. We both had the Quesadilla/Burrito (eggs, chorizo, caramelized onions and red peppers) and shared a side of bacon and grits. This may sound like typical brunch fare but it was well prepared and very flavorful. The service is friendly, too. The whole place gives you a sense of being among friendly neighbors. We really enjoyed it and will be going back for more!"

order and forgot half of our order. disappointing food and service,"

Quiet patio in the back, perfect
for lunch/brunch on a sunny day. The brunch menu was small, but everyone found something to enjoy - although not the healthiest of options. Servers were very friendly. The fig flatbread was delicious."

First time going to Backyard and
it was a really nice experience. I took my mom there for Mother's Day; sat in the backyard with gnomes all over. I really like the spot for the vibes--relaxed, welcoming and unpretentious! The food could have been better (i.e., the chicken) but the Shrimp N' Grits is pretty tasty with creamy hominy and a polenta cake (the polenta cake could have been more seasoned). I would recommend this place to others based on the service, drinks and certain dishes (i.e. the Shrimp N' Grits and the fig & blue cheese flatbread). "

Backyard has a huge outdoor space,
plus tables inside if you want to watch a game or hear great music. lovely cocktails, small focused menu"

We enjoyed the food and service
but It is primarily a bar. It has a nice sitting area in the back outside but we came on a spring evening and were seated in the bar on bar stools. Also it was pricy for the food we received."

this is a bar that serves very
good food - but still, you are eating at a bar. Nice cocktails, friendly waiter, small food selection"

It was my first time at Backyard.
Some of their dishes were really good, especially clam chowder, lobster sliders and creamed hominy. I was underwhelmed by fig & blue cheese flatbread as made with dry figs and not that many to begin with. Short ribs was cooked to perfection but really salty. I would probably go back."
Dined on 4/3/2014
We shared a variety of sliders -
BLT, meatloaf and pork - and sides that were all quite good. Service was terrific although the music was a little too loud for us."

Backyard is definitely worth going
to for a nice Saturday or Sunday brunch! The food is great and the chef genuinely cares about what his customers think. He's also very attentive and super nice!"

The food was so good. And the
pickles are a must try."

Really love this please thought it
was really cute and romantic. Food was very little felt like I was eating baby food It was very small"

4 small sliders for $19 with
nothing on the side. Food OK but not competitive in the nabe."
Dined on 11/3/2013
My guests loved it. Interesting
combination of flavors and a wonderfully, authentically enthusiastic waiter."

Maybe I did not fall in love with
this place because I did not go for brunch , but I was not impressed. The outdoor seating area is wonderful and it is right around the corner from where I live so I really wanted to love it. The menu is pretty much limited to flat breads and sliders. My sliders were decent , but my friend got the meatloaf and did not like it . She said it was oddly tough .we both left hungry . Perhaps we will give it another try at brunch ."

Neighborhood Must -- Good Food --
a Living Room type of comfortable -- a No Rush social atmosphere with Friendly Servers. Sunday Brunch with Cocktails was Notably Delicious and Affordable. 8/17/2013 was my first time and I definitely would return to try more."
