was a bit disappointed that it was more pub like/ bar like than restaurant.....there were TVS in the dining room which I don't enjoy when dining.....I may have misread the description

Having said tha the service was very good and enjoyed the meal despite TV distraction

would recommend as long as you are aware of setting

food good do recommend and would return

Back Nine has a good name, so we thought it would be better. Sold out of the lunch special. Service was slow. Part of an order was incorrect. Not very busy and it seemed to take forever. Will likely not be going back.

This was our first time at the Back Nine Grill and the food was fabulous! Way better than we had even expected. Our server made some mistakes but she was graciously apologetic and quickly took care of the problems. When the doors were open it was very very noisy in the bar area but when they were closed it helped to reduce the noise.

We had a table of 6 on a relatively quiet Tuesday night. The service was good and the casual atmosphere was what we were looking for. The menu is general fare with a couple of specials – not elaborate, but the food was good and reasonably priced. I will definitely go back again.

Food was excellent, however our service was poor. Asked several times for items and was forgotten, had to standup and search for server to pay bill.

we had 6pm reservations, initially told no table for 2 available and it would be a 15-20 minute wait. after 10 minutes we were seated in the dining area, i noted several empty tables. not sure why reservations were not honored. we were seated in table for 2 against the sliding noisy always slamming glass doors, bar area very loud.

not a good dinning experience, will not return..

soup was lukewarm, rice undercooked and luke warm

Completely different menu than what is published on open table.....and unfortunately the real menu is not as's bar food, done reasonably well...nothing to write home about.

This restaurant falls short in the fine dining category. It has definitely gone downhill since first opening. This was our fourth visit and will be our last! The bar area was very busy and several groups gathered there seem to be enjoying themselves. In another area of the restaurant, a large group was meeting putting stress on the 2 person wait staff (as well as the kitchen I assume). My sole with crabmeat stuffing was tasteless and overcooked. The honey mustard dressing requested for the salad was actually a mustard sauce (with no trace of honey) and spicy hot! Entirely unsuitable for lettuce greens.

We are a party of four who dines out weekly and loves good/great food. Well the food passed our test but it was hard to really enjoy the evening since the room was EXTREMELY loud! We were in a booth and could not carry on a conversation without shouting. For that reason we will not return.

Although this restaurant is known as a sports bar, they had a quiet dining area that was closed off via pocket doors, providing a nice ambience for non-bar diners, and everyone in our party really enjoyed their meals.
