Have been coming here for years and it never disappoints. Service was a little slow tonight and they weren’t busy but everything was amazing and a great place to go!

We went to celebrate my birthday. We made reservations. The waitress was MIA and was kind of snooty. Yes, I had a $25 off coupon but it was off of $75. Our bill without tip was still $70. Waitress checked on us just a few times. I get it is fine dining but 3 hours was a bit much. Folks next to us were sat before us, got their meal and were gone. Not sure what the problem was.

It was our first time experiencing the back room steakhouse after many friends have suggested it. The service was very nice and attentive. A little slow to get the food but nothing to out of the normal.

The food was ok, nothing to write home about and the steak was very tough which is strange for a medium rare. Overall, we left full and chalked last night up to a bad night. Will absolutely be trying this restaurant again!

We went for dinner... had a bottle of wine and two burgers. It was so yummy! The staff was so friendly! The place was really busy, and we waited a bit for our food, but we never felt ignored. I was sent away with a birthday slice of chocolate cake (which I wasn’t expecting) that was so delicious! The food is good, it is kinda pricey, but I loved how unpretentious and friendly everyone was. We felt like we were “regulars” or family. So nice! Thank you!

Excellent appetizer (fried green tomatoes) & dessert (cheesecake). Cocktails were top notch (Manhattan & Pisco sour). The sides were humdrum & the New York strip was tougher to chew than should be the case for a steakhouse. Will try the restaurant again at a later date.

The food is exceptional, my wife had the lamb and I had the prime rib. Both were delicious and so were the sides. The staff was very attentive. We will definitely be back

Everything was amazing! From drinks and food to the attentive service. We were skeptical about a steakhouse located in apopka, but I can honestly say it is just as good as an upper end steakhouse. We will definitely be back!

Food was great but it literally took an hour to get it after ordering. After the meal ordered a dark chocolate martini. Bartender used Hershey's milk chocolate syrup because she was out of dark chocolate. Waitress never notified us about the lack of dark chocolate, just served it with the substitutions the bartender made. Not professional at all.

DELICIOUS! Food was well worth the price. My husband and i had an appetizer, glass of wine, soft drink, 2 entrees and dessert for $100 plus tip. I had the braised beef risotto and it was OMG so creamy, i was in heaven. My husband's ribeye and sweet potato fries were also so good, steak was very tender. Dessert was creme brulee and we devoured it. The short rib appetizer and sauce also very flavorful and crunchy. Service was great and amazingly fast. I loved this place, surprised it wasn't packed. We will be back for sure.

I have been to the back room on many occasions and always find it to exceed my expectations.
The owner always makes sure the food is prepared to your liking and the staff is very professional and friendly. Great service. I will be back many more times!

The food was amazing ! The server was the only thing not on point for our Father’s Day dinner. He never told us his name, started off with a negative comment and we never really felt he was happy with our presence. He seemed bothered when my daughter was taking time to decide what she wanted.

We have been there quite a few times, loved it, but the last visit was slightly disappointing. The three of us ordered the sea bass, which we have ordered previously without complaint. However this time, it was undercooked and the portion size was half of what it is typicially. For $39 an entree, we expect a little more fish and not a little less risotto. Although we all complained about the portion size, only one of us received a very small, additional piece which was cooked properly. We've recommended this place to many of our friends and hope they have a better experience than we did on Friday night. (For the record, my family owns a very successful seafood restaurant, so I know how seabass should be cooked!)

I always enjoy dining at The Backroom. Ed and his team treats everyone with exceptional customer service. Michael was our server and he was very attentive to our needs. Of course, I seem to always order the pork chop!! They have specials, off-menu, that are very good. We enjoyed the goat cheese appetizer which was amazing!! I recommend The Backroom to those looking for an enjoyable meal and pleasant atmosphere!!

Food and service is always excellent. The steaks are as good as you would get at any recognized high end steakhouse. Highly recommend this restuarant for a casual dining experience.

It was good , but I'm not crazy about the veggies available as a side choice . And $39 still seems steep for a filet, even with a baked potato and veggie . I did enjoy my flight of craft beers .

Everything from drinks to dessert was FANTASTIC. Really nice drinks/beer flight. Steaks cooked to order, delicious house salad, yummy baked potato, great dessert. Going to be our new go to local restaurant! The ONLY thing I'd have changed was the temperature of the restaurant was a bit warm. Everone in party agreed that there needed to be some cooler air circulating.

The normally great side dish of risotto was not good at all. Server blamed it on a new cook. I ate some but taste like it had Rosemary in it. My wife ask the server to substitute a potato for her risotto.

Bring back the old great tasting risotto, Ed.

Looking for anther dinner spot for Steaks, we found Backroom Steakhouse and decided to try. I had the Porterhouse and my husband had the Ribeye. Both steaks were excellent and we will be back on Sunday for Prime Rib Night.
