Gretchen was our server and she was fabulous! Food and drinks were delicious.. we love dining at Backfin!
Would go back . Good food and nice friendly service .
All was fine with only the chairs not of sufficient sturdiness to support 6' 4" 250 lb. well fed customer!
Jay, thanks for your review! We look forward to your next visit at either one of our locations! Regards, Chef / Owner Bob Steele
Backfin Blues is our go to restaurant. We live in Havre de Grace just over the bridge and it is worth the drive. Rob makes us feel at home every time we visit . We come for the amazing food. The taste is fresh, creative and perfectly seasoned. Donna and I love to cook at home and really appreciate the care that the chef takes preparing the dishes. The friendly great service at Backfin Blues keeps us coming back. The 3 for 30 was an unexpected treat. We came for Donna's birthday on a Thursday night. We are usually out for dinner on a Saturday.
Love this place, it is my favorite restaurant, it is always a treat to go there, the food is amazing!
Tammy, you comments make all the hard work mean something and rewarding! My staff and I truly try to hit the mark every time. We can't wait to see you again, soon! Regards, Owner/Chef Bob Steele

My wife and I, enjoyed everything from the meal to talking to the staff. The price of the meal was about right, we both felt that the manual had a lot to choose from.
Over all, we had a wonderful evening at the Backfin Blues, we looking forward too coming back with friends.

We truly enjoyed our dinner at Backfin Blues. The location is Port Deposit is just beautiful and the Susquehanna River sits right behind the restaurant along with a riverwalk and additional bars.
Always fabulous food and great presentation. Friendly and prompt service..
The food was superb. We were celebrating a special occasion and while Port Deposit is a quaint little town and the restaurant is in what look's like a historic small town store, the inside was not as nicely decorated as I had hoped. There was little noise among the patrons, ---mostly just moderate noise from the kitchen. You can smell everything that is cooking in the kitchen--it's close quarters. It smells wonderful, but some may be sensitive to all the cooking smells. I would have liked it to have more historic type decorations or some kind of theme, or just had it feel a little fancier for the prices we were paying for dinner. We enjoyed our meal and our time together, but I just wish the restaurant "look" was more special.
Enjoyable and we plan to come back. A very pleasant experience.
Changed seating when we arrived which was not a problem for them, we were lucky & they provided the service!
Food was delicious (highly recommend the porterhouse porkchop) Only 2 complains were music was too loud to converse and long lulls between courses. The pork chop made up for it all.
Great place, great wait staff, great cooks. I would recommend this place in a second.
Food was fabulous in an unpretentious environment. Service was good but this is not a fine dining experience if that’s what you’re going for. Overall the price exceeded the value in my opinion, but I would still go back, so take that for what it’s worth.
Complements to the chef for another outstanding meal, along with good and friendly service, all leading to a very enjoyable evening
This was our first visit, but it won't be our last. Brunch was wonderful!!!! Some of the best wings we have ever had.
Everything was delicious. From the pre dinner rolls to the crab cakes- everything was on point and perfect.
We always enjoy our meal experience at Backfin Blues. Food is excellent and the staff is super.
as i have said before - i would like to leave poor reviews so there is more for me - but I would not as this is one of my favorite restaurants - why - the people that run it and the food is outstanding
Everything was very good. Small mixup with veggies but no real complaint because what ones I got were very good. Waitress was excellent and so was food.
Best food in the area. Our favorite restaurant. Never disappoints.
We love and work so hard to earn your comments! My staff and I do our very best to make your evening memorable! We can't wait to see you again as soon as possible at either one of our locations. Regards, Chef / Owner Bob Steele

The food was fabulous except for the bread. The service was also excellent.
Our dinner on Saturday was exceptional. Our server, Gretchen, was the best. Our dinners were great. I had crab cakes and my husband had, he said, the best filet he ever had. To top off my evening, I had a wonderful chocolate martini which was good enough to lick the glass. I didn’t but I really wanted to. Keep up the good work and we will see you soon. Joan Metzbower
Joan, thanks for all your comments from the filet to licking your glass, which I approve of! I will be sure to let Gretchen know her service was appreciated! We so look forward to seeing you soon as well at either one of our locations! Regards, Chef / Owner Bob Steele

We were there for Valentine's Day. It was great, as usual!
food was good but it was very loud, staff did a fine job
We have been to Backfin Blues several times and our experiences are always very satisfying. The food is great especially the mussels. The lava cake desert was to die for. Our waitress Gretchen was very thoughtful and gracious. You are missing a great place if you haven't been here.
Phillip, thanks for taking the time to review us! Our servers kick butt and certainly Gretchen is one of them. We look forward to seeing you soon at either one of our locations! Regards, Chef / Owner Bob Steele

My staff and I appreciate your 5 STAR Brunch review! We so look forward to seeing you soone at either one of our locations. Regards, Chef / Owner Bob Steele
Past this place over a 100 times. The food was awesome.
Perfect. Started with fire and ice appetizer, which was Ahi, wasabi, and sauce... the sweet sauce with the kick of the wasabi was the perfect balance. The fillet mignon was medium rare, and was cooked evenly, the peppercorn added great flavor without taking away from the natural flavor of the steak itself. Mashed potatoes with caramelized onion.. need I say more, nope. Best potatoes this belly ever had. The rib eye steak with blue cheese butter; melt in your mouth delicious. As for the dessert, I have never tried creme brulee, and decided to give it a go here.. it was a great dessert to top off the amazing dinner. If I could give 6 stars, I would. I'm glad we decided to have our date night here, and would definitely be back. Our server Kaitlin was awesome, she understood this girls need for the tasty rolls and dessert. If you're looking for a spectacular meal, this is the place.
GRUBADDICT, thanks and yes we will take 6 STARS form you! We are so glad that you enjoyed everything from food to service! My staff and I look forward to seeing you soon at either one of our locations. Regards, Chef / Owner Bob Steele
