    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. Second our steaks were awful under cooked and possibly past there expiration date. Overall was a disappointment but again the service was on point and bar was great.

    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. Thank you again for choosing Back Table and we hope to see you in again soon!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I visited Back Table on Mother's Day with my wife. The ambiance was nice, the lake/pond/golf course view was an enhancement for sure. On Mother's Day the was a limited brunch menu offered, the options were underwhelming at best. We order the Voodoo Beer Batter fish and chips, the Classic Single (added bacon/ sub the chips for fries) and a kids chicken tender for our son. My burger was OK definitely not worth $23 (including fries) the pretzel bun was nice but smaller than the actual burger which limits you getting a full flavor bite because the bun and garlic aioli sauce is missing. My wife fish and chips meal was a very small portion size of fish. It was like a 2-3 oz filet of fish on a bed of fries. Our son's meal was well balance and portioned. It seem you really paid for the location and not the food. You would be better off going to a chain restaurant like BJ's or Cheddars for the same meal at a cheaper price.

    Everything was good except one rude server at the bar. We went to the bar for happy hour, we mentioned that to the server, he said “cool” and then he charged us double “not happy hour price” excuse he made was “one of your drinks it’s not happy hour menu” we knew that, we didn’t ask for that one to be haft price, but how about the 5 other drinks that were in the happy hour menu? Fortunately, the new manager took very good care of the situation.

    Eating outside is marvelous with the view and quietness. Inside is a bit stark. The menu selection is fair. Though the drinks were very good, they are overpriced.

    Super nice staff, but for a resort as nice as this one you would really expect better food. Of the 5 dishes we ordered I ate one shrimp and just left the rest. Also, while the tiki martini is beautiful it tastes like soap and could not be enjoyed.

    Although we had a very pleasant waiter, the food just did not justify the prices. Our steaks were grossly undercooked for what we ordered, the kids meals were bad, and our son’s lemonade tasted like dishwater. Certainly the worst $200 we have ever spent on a meal.

    The Back Table nestled in the heart of The Woodlands Resort is an excellent restaurant to dine at. The food presented is contemporary chic with lots of excellent flavors. The biscuits with honey butter are very good ($7.00 an order). The skirt steak with fries is excellent and the Moms lettuce salad with butter lettuce and tomatoes and white onion with ranch dressing are excellent. The restaurant has a beautiful view of the golf course! I would highly recommend it. It is a great place for a nice night out or with family.

    Back Table Kitchen & BarResponded on May 2, 2022Thank you for this 5-star review Jerry! We are so glad that you enjoyed the biscuits, skirt steak and salad. We hope to see you in again soon.
