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.

Underwhelming food and atmosphere. Service felt rushed at the beginning and slow towards the end.

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.

BYB’s is always fun! The food has improved since they’ve been open, we all cleared our plates. Also comfortable bar seats if you’re watching a game.

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.

The atmosphere is fun and casual. Everyone was sooo friendly! The food was fantastic! We went for an early New Year’s dinner. There is a new menu! We started with corn bread. Then I had a huge salad with goat cheese, cranberries and walnuts and a lite dressing. So many beer choices I tried out a new one. My husband had the deviled eggs he loves.....he always gets them when he comes. Then he had a flatbread which he said was very tasty. He had the Lord Hobo Boomsauce IPA. For my entree I had a huge plate of perfectly cooked medium rare tips. They were wood grilled and yummy! There were also little baked potatoes and grilled asparagus. The service was excellent! Christine, our waitress, checked in on us often and we even had New Year’s hats to celebrate! Great night! Delicious dinner! I would strongly recommend Backyard Betty’s!!

Really liked the wings and the burger was solid. Drinks were average, but there was a good beer selection. Good option to watch the patriots (with sound) in Southie.

Overall, had a great experience at this restaurant. Ordered an appetizer and the app came out after we finished our entrees. I have been on more than one occasion to this restaurant and had this happen each time. Great service, great food, though.
