    I've known Ed, the owner, for years now and was excited to finally make it to The Back Room Steakhouse. People as far as Eustis and DeLand said they drive into Apopka just for Ed's steaks, and I see why. They were perfectly cooked, tender, and delicious. Will be going back!

    Our second visit to Backroom. It is now much better The first time was shortly after the opening, and things were a bit sketchy, but recently the entire place was operating smoothly. The bar has expanded it's offerings, but lacks mixings for a Stinger (white crème de mint and brandy cannot be that difficult to obtain). But the beer selection is excellent, and the wine list is brief but decent. Considering the location, this is understandable. We had rib eye and strips for dinner. The rib eye was very good and the strip was great. Cooked spot on. The creamed spinach is different, and delicious. More like a cheesy then creamy, but really good. Nice salads, but a bit much dressing, and the bread tasted fresh and warm. Kudos to Ed.

    My reservation was "lost" despite the fact that someone from the restaurant called me on my cell phone at 4:50 PM to confirm the 7:00 PM reservation. Place is small so no open tables. We finally got seated at approx. 7:45 PM. They could not offer any explanation.

    Our food came out in a timely manner; however, my lamb chops were way under-cooked. I had to send them back to be reheated! Also, our server could have been more attentive. He never filled our water glasses, and seemed to be busy in another side of the restaurant most of the time. I'm wondering since we had an early reservation, that he was the first server there and took our table.

    The Back Room didn't disappoint...steak flavorful and practically melts in the mouth. Baked potato was fresh and good. Grilled asparagus had been on the grill too long - next time I'll remind the server to ask that the asparagus not be overcooked. Price very reasonable for the quality and portion of food. The quarters are a little close at the Back Room - I suggest asking for one of the two tables "behind' the front door, to be out of the traffic.

    An incredible menu awaits you at the Back Room. Was totally unfamiliar with this location when I first went (occasion of a birthday celebration). Was immediately taken by the incredible menu and attention to detail. Have since become a regular and tell everyone about this wonderful "find." One thing, you MUST make a reservation as it can be hard to find an open table as this place has become a "must" for many people.

    This was our first trip to The Back Room, and we will return for the steak! It was terrific! Cooked exactly as we requested--and it was well seasoned. (Garlic mashed potatoes were a tad salty.) The calamari appetizer was well prepared and a good portion. Service was attentive without being intrusive. The wine list is reasonable with some very affordable choices available. We split the dessert, and next time, there will be two! Too good to share!

    This is a tiny. friendly place but can't say it is cozy in it's décor. We have been to the Back Room several times for the steak. It is nice to be able to go to a local restaurant that isn't serving fast food. We need more places like this in Apopka. The steaks are expensive but excellent quality. The garlic mashed potatoes are very good. The salmon, at this visit, was tasty but dry. Our waitress was great - helpful & attentive.

    I had one of the best steak house restaurant strip sirloins ever - on par with steak houses charging double the price for the same fare. Aged for minimum of 28 days with great flavor and seasoning - no need for the excellent in house made steak sauce. Very tender and as I said before great flavor and did I say it was very tender? My 10 oz strip was priced at $23 with sides. The most expensive steak on the menu was a center cut Filet Mignon at $33. Great service as well. The owner brought out our main courses and checked on us afterwards to be sure that we were satisfied. Great little steakhouse in Apopka Fl - 45 min drive from the Universal Studios area and well worth it. I live in Tampa, Fl but will be back when I am in the area again.

    This is a small restaurant... We loved the bread so much, we asked the waiter where the restaurant buys it. He said he'd check. The owner came out and told us he orders it in from New York!!!! We were seated exactly at our reserved time. We were served almost immediately. The food came quickly. The steaks were cooked perfectly and as tasty as any I've had in high end steak restaurants. The hostess called us the next day to ask us if if we were happy with the restaurant. I gave it 2 stars for ambience because this restaurant isn't charging you for the fixtures. It is not an expensive steak house. There was almost a family like feel to it. I recommend it highly to anyone.
