    Very slow service at bar. They only had 2 bartenders for the bar and entire restaurant. Very noisy. Would not recommend.

    Service was excellent. Received food and drinks timely. Food quality was average. Very noisy environment that was made worse by live music playing in the background. Would not recommend if you are wanting to have dinner and casual conversation.

    Interesting newer restaurant. Very engaging environment but ridiculously long service time. Food was good but nothing exceptional. Very loud with excitement of children playing games.

    The food was horrible. Everything we ordered and very undercooked chicken to the point that you could be sick might be good for drinks, but bad for food.

    I really hope you get this restaurant’s act together soon. It looks amazing, love the atmosphere. The service was terrible. We waited 20 min for drinks and then it was not refilled the rest of the meal. One person got their meal 15 min before the rest, they forgot chicken on the salad and then we waited another 25 min to pay after we were done. We live close by and want to try again but will wait until you hopefully figure things out.

    This spot just opened and wow is it a cool space! Definitely still a lot of kinks to figure out and everyone seemed a bit overwhelmed with the menu and how busy it was but everyone was working hard. They have a very limited menu, one of the bars is closed and definitely need to do some more hiring! I’m excited to see this place take off as it surely is going to be a hot spot to go.

    Thanks for stopping by, Emma! Working hard is an understatement for our awesome staff. We hope you come back and see us, we know we can get that full 5-star review we aim for every time!

    The BACKYARD is a new restaurant in Desert Ridge, Phoenix. The friendly staff and delicious food makes it delightful. It’s very impressive! The entire place will be opened or closed according to the weather conditions. This is a smart and unique concept!! With 32 TV screens you’ll never be bored! We’ll be back!!
    BackYard - Desert RidgeResponded on April 2, 2024
    Hey Sonia! Don't worry about the weather - we can completely close off the space in adverse conditions (although the patios will certainly close in the rain, etc). We've got HUGE garage doors that can close to keep everyone dry - or out of the wind... so no issues there! Come back and see us soon!
