    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!

    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).

    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.

    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!

    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.
