We loved backyard Betty’s! We had the best service. went there on a whim after looking for the best chicken waffles in Boston 😂 we were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. Awesome spot for a Sunday funday with corn hole, Jenga, ski ball and more! Will definitely go back. Tiny bit pricy but expected for the area.

Service was very poor - our waitress deliberately ignored us, messed up our orders several times, and was visibly annoyed with us and the rest of the customers for no reason.

My friends and I discovered Backyard Bettys a few Sunday’s ago and loved it so much I organized a group of 20 to come because I knew they would love just as much. Great atmosphere always such a fun time, drinks are reasonably priced, my chicken sandwich was really good, and my friends and I can’t wait to come back. I will definitely be organizing more get together with friends here. WE LOVE IT! Well done great place.

I came with an expectation for this place and it turned out to exceed .. the spacing is large accommodates two bars. I am big on booth seating. Their booths are massive and comfy, TVs has something to appease whatever one wanted to watch and those who didn’t watch they had music flowing through out. Next room had gaming machine to enjoy. The atmosphere was fun, friendly, geared towards gen Y & millennials. The food was delicious and service was fast. My waiter assured I had a drink at all times or a fresh refill. The food was hot fresh and tasty. Before adjusting the menu to your liking I suggest getting food how is prepared in the menu. Menu is simple and straight to the point.
Must try the candied bacon. I look forward to going back

Slow service, errors made, basic accoutrements missing, requests were slow to be responded to. Service was a let down to the food which was actually quite good

This was not a good move for the football game. It felt like we were being herded, and then they didn't have a table open for literally hours after our reservation time.

We had a few misshaps with food being wrong, not delivered and tasteless, but staff response more than made up for this. Food that was not delivered was comped and two rounds of free drinks were brought. Overall, a non-ideal situation was remedied via great staff.

A little too dark inside on the dining area. Food took a while to come out but it was good. One thing I didn’t like was the drink on the bar side. After finishing our meal, we went over to the game side. I ordered off the menu the same drink I had at dinner and it was completely different and not good at all

Friends from out of town were visiting with their child. Managers were incredibly accommodating and attentive to our needs. On a Saturday night when the other half of the place was packed with party people, we were still able to have a great time and catch up! Food was great, large portions matched the prices. Would definitely recommend for pretty much any dining occasion.

Less than what we anticipated. The service was poor and multiple items that we ordered were never brought out and we had to ask for one of them to be taken off the bill. Looks like a fun place for drinks but nothing special

Everything was wondering expect my boyfriends entree came out before mine. And not just slightly before. Like he finished his meal before mine ever arrived.... that was disappointing and a little awkward. Which is a bummer because everything else was awesome!

We really enjoyed the food and the vibe. We had tips, salmon and ribs all excellent. Big hit of the night ….the donuts! Hot and reminiscent of churros. Try them.

Atmosphere looked fun but we didnt stay long enough to enjoy the games. Service was horrible, rude waiter who couldn't care less what we wanted. We finally requested a new one and she was much better. Food was just so-so, nothing special about the grilled chicken sandwich. Not I. A hurry to get back.

Last minute Mother’s Day reservations left few options, but we were not disappointed. The food is pretty good and the service is food. There are lots of tvs for sports watching. The food is reasonably priced. The nachos are huge and so good. The onion ring appetizer was very good. The Nashville hot chicken sandwich was okay and the fries were decent but could have been a bit crispier. The garden salad was very good. The pulled pork flatbread looked very tasty.

So the overall experience was good. We went there for a Sunday lunch. The bloody Mary’s were on point and added bonus they had a slim Jim in them. Honestly, I would never think to do that but it really took the bloody up a notch! Also the fried pickles and deviled eggs were absolutely amazing! Highly suggest. The only area they fell short for me was the main course. I had salmon over a garden salad which was drenched in oil. Not a vinaigrette just a lot of oil. If anyone wants that much oil they would order something less healthy, right? So there was no flavor. I had to add salt! My friend ordered some chicken sandwich thing she said it was eh?!? She had, had better and it came with fries which were way under done. My other friend ordered breakfast and she said it was good. No complaints, not the best but not the worst either. Not totally memorable.

It looks like it could be a really fun place to go at night but I suggest just having apps and cocktails. Make dinner plans elsewhere.

We happened to come in on a trivia night which was fun..but format of the trivia game itself was
confusing and hard to hear at times.
Our service was excellent, really nice young man. Food was excellent as well as ambience and will definitely
return.

Noisy place, even though it wasn't even that crowded. Waiter was a zombie, did not make us feel welcome. Food was okay, although my chicken instead of crispy waffles, it was soft and drenched in a pool of syrup. Not my favorite. I won't be back.

The place is well decorated and looks really nice, the bar is cool and gets you excited to have a good experience. However, food is pricey for its quality and size of the portions.

The atmosphere was good and the vibe was good, but the food and drinks were average. I’d go back for the bar crowd on a weekend but probably not for dinner.
