    A great place for a dining with a view since it is inside the resort. Service is great and also the food. The only downside is the outdoor dining, lots of flies since it was beside the lake. Wish they have something for that. But overall, I love this place.

    Reservation put us a high top in the bar area. Our server spent an expectational amount of time bar tending instead of serving tables. Waited 20 minutes post appetizers to place dinner order, then waited 35 minutes for dinner. Music was extremely loud. However, wine class was great fun, really enjoyed it!

    This is one of the restaurants offered to guests at the Woodlands Resort and Golf course so I expected more. We made reservations as suggested by front desk, honestly though, I don't think we really needed any. The restauran is cute and modern, dining area is separated by a bar in the middle and one side for regular seating and the other for bar type seating. On this particular night we wanted to sit on the dining side however there was live music playing on the bar side and it was really loud. The music was not bad it was just to loud to have a conversation over dinner without shouting and the quality of the sound was awful (the music wasn't awful it was the quality probably because the building). We requested to sit outside on the patio. The patio had approximately 6-8 tables almost all were full I suspect because of the sound inside and that is why the dining room area was pretty empty and generally speaking one doesn't really choose to sit out in the Woodlands humidity after a rainstorm easily. We ordered drinks and an artisanal cheese board for an appetizer. 4 cheeses, 2 games and a few deep fried crackers. served with a side plate of multi grain seeded crackers, it seemed as if they ran out of something else that was supposed to be served on the board and just added these random crackers, but who really knows. Our order was taking awhile and the server informed us it was because all the cheeses were hand cut. Finally when our board was brought out we were not told what the cheeses were, when I asked our server didn't know either but would find out (never did). Over all the food was ok, not good enough for me to want to go back and I definitely would not go back just for the restaurant if not staying at the resort. Our server forgot our food, forgot us, didn't refill waters, didn't check on us for more beverages, and we had to request dessert several times. With mediocre food, service could have made all the difference in the world. over all disappointed

    The food was fine but definitely not worth the price. We had their rib eye and it just didn’t have much flavor at all. If my ticket is going to be over $100, I expect the food to knock my socks off. Or at least be better than something I can cook at home!

    Good breakfast style brunch included mimosas and bloody Marys. Could do with more fish and meat selections. Overall a good value. Website needs to reflect that weekend brunch is not served in actual restaurant but in a meeting room in a separate building.

    First, I called the front desk & was transferred to the restaurant 3x, left 1 VM & still never got to speak to anyone. I was trying to add 2 to our reservation but could never talk to anyone so our friends were not able to join us. Drink menu had more to choose from than the food menu. Food was not worth the price in my opinion.

    It was a good evening and I will be there in the winter for the fire pit and outdoor ambiance. Food was okay. Overpriced, but, what can one expect? It’s in a resort and they need to make money. My only dissatisfaction was the hostess trying to make me seat myself outdoors. I believe the mission statement for a restaurant and the overall hospitality industry is “Serve the customer”. Next time, she should serve the customer and lead the experience. It’s personable and respectful especially when dining at a “fancy” restaurant. But, some people, work at jobs they hate. Thanks.

    I want to start off and say the service was amazing. Unfortunately they advertised live music and we were informed that was a misprint. Would of not have chosen this restaurant otherwise.

    We ordered two appetizers; their fried bbq oysters and their crab deviled eggs. Both were very good, although the oysters were a little overdone. The sauce on them was amazing and supposedly made in house. The deviled eggs were good but had one tiny piece of crab on top. Unfortunately before we could take two bites of appetizer, our entrees were out. Seemed like a seriously quick delivery making us believe they must have been prepared ahead and just heated up. My husband had the Blackened Redfish with crispy fingerling potatoes. The fish was not a whole fish but instead looked more like a square cod filet. He said it was very dry leading him to believe it may have been pre cooked. It was accompanied by a tzatziki sauce, but it wasn’t enough moisture. The potatoes had been smashed on a flat top but needed ketchup or something. They were dry too. I had the Beer can chicken with sweet potato purée. No complaints with mine other than it wasn’t super hot. The manager visited us and we did share the timing issue with her. For dessert we have the chocolate coconut crème brûlée. It was delicious, but the top was warm and the bottom cool. It was also plain, no whipped crème. So, I gave it 3 stars because it was just ok for a $150 meal. Oh and a $17 Tito’s dirty martini. Seemed steep but I don’t drink much.

    What a marvelous experience we had celebrating our 46th Anniversary at the Back Table. We felt Back Table would fit what we were looking for—friendly, low key, and a quality experience in a beautiful setting. What we received far exceeded our expectations. Every employee we encountered was friendly, poised, relaxed, efficient and caring. From the hostess, to our excellent server, Rebecca, the Back Table team truly impressed me. Richard, the manager, has put together a team focused on serving delicious, creative food with great hospitality. We started with the hickory smoked chicken wings. These chicken wings were THE BEST I have ever eaten in my life!!! Smokey and falling off the bone with just the right amount of kick. You could vary the kick by adding or subtracting the pickled peppers that came along. Lots of rich blue cheese came along for the ride. Our sandwiches were great and the (house made?) pickles were fantastic. Loved the addition of coriander seeds. The red pepper jelly on my sandwich was a true Southern addition. The boozy tres leches cake was a perfect finish to a special meal.

    Back Table Kitchen & BarResponded on June 29, 2022Karen, thank you so much for choosing Back Table for your 46th Anniversary! What a special occasion and we cannot thank you enough for entrusting us with it. We are ecstatic to hear that you had such a wonderful time and we cannot wait to share your feedback with our team.

    Took my husband & kids for Father’s Day. The menu looks good. The margaritas are very good any kids food was good. We ordered fried green tomatoes for our appetizer they were fried but the tomatoes themselves were so undercooked and hard. We had to send them back we got the pimento cheese and crackers as a replacement it tasted like store-bought. I ordered the redfish and my husband ordering the shrimp and grits. Definitely was not worth the price the redfish was very bland And The shrimp and grits were not good either. My husband had to spit out one of the shrimp because it was raw. The kids enjoyed the milkshakes. Needless to say we will not be going back our bill was $200 for really bad food

    The service was ok. The food didn't come out at the same time and my husband's was over 10 minutes later (on Father's Day). Live music was nice but too loud for table conversation. Probably won't be back - a bit too expensive for what we got.

    Victor is excellent! He served our table multiple times last week for Father's Day weekend with our family of 8. His upbeat personality and expert handling of our large party really added to the experience.

    Back Table Kitchen & BarResponded on June 29, 2022Thank you for choosing to dine with us and for taking the time to leave this 5-star review Sara! We adore Victor and we appreciate you recognizing his excellent service. We look forward to sharing this with him and hope you will come dine with us again soon.

    This was the very worst ribeye steak I have ever eaten. I am happy to pay top dollar for a good steak (Killens/Kirby/Perry’s), but this was subpar at best - hollandaise requested on side, but steak was smothered in it - most likely to hide the bad quality of the meat - :( Disappointing and will not be back - will not be back.

    Back Table Kitchen & BarResponded on June 21, 2022Thank you for choosing to dine with us, Lila, and for taking the time to write this review. We are disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your ribeye and that the sauce did not come out on the side as requested. We are sharing your feedback with the appropriate team members to address these issues and hope that you will come back so that we may earn a 5-star review.

    Too noisy for seniors, especially those with hearing aids. Lots of small children wandering around the room aimlessly while their harried parents enjoyed their adult beverages.

    Back Table Kitchen & BarResponded on June 21, 2022Thank you for choosing to dine with us, Joseph, and for taking the time to write this review. We are very sorry to hear that your experience was anything but 5-stars. We are indeed a family friendly establishment but we certainly understand that things can get a bit loud in that aspect. We hope you will come dine with us again so that we may earn a 5-star review.

    My husband and I had a great time here. There is a beautiful view and the service was incredible. We had Victor helping us and he was attentive to all our needs and made sure we enjoyed everything. The hostess was also amazing and let us know about happy hour specials. The food was also delicious! I highly recommend the biscuits. 🤤

    Back Table Kitchen & BarResponded on June 21, 2022Thank you for choosing to dine with us, Andrea! We appreciate you leaving a 5-star review and are so glad to hear that you had such a wonderful experience with Victor. He is truly amazing! We hope you will come back and visit us again soon.

    The margarita and Bloody Mary experience were not very impressive, you only choose 1 flavor and the appetizers were not enough for 4 people

Our menu states that this experience comes with small bites and serves 3-4 people.

    Food was okay. Certainly not a good value due to the portion size. Limited menu, especially for vegetarians. However, the oysters are some of the best I have ever had. Be prepared to pay $75 to $100 per person. The Tavern at the Woodlands Country Club, on the resort property, was a much better option. On a positive note our server was very good and the food came out quickly.

    Back Table Kitchen & BarResponded on June 10, 2022Thank you for choosing to dine with us, Kent. We are sorry to hear that your experience was anything less than 5-stars and we are sharing your feedback with the appropriate team members to address these concerns. We are very glad that you enjoyed the oysters and we appreciate your feedback about the options for vegetarians. We hope you will come dine with us again so that we may earn a 5-star review.

    Nice casual restaurant by the golf course with mediocre food. Pros - Nice views - nice atmosphere - ok service Cons - food was completely forgettable - nothing special - pimento cheese. This is Texas, not Georgia. We have had queso, we don’t need your janky mayo cheese

    Back Table Kitchen & BarResponded on June 8, 2022Thank you for choosing to dine with us and for taking the time to leave this review. We are glad that you enjoyed the atmosphere and are very sorry that the pimento cheese was not to your liking. Unfortunately, queso is not something that we offer at this time. We hope you will come visit again soon so that we may earn a 5-star review.
