Great food, great service, and great prices. I would definitely recommend to anyone, and will be returning. NY Strip was cooked perfectly, as was my wife's salmon. Their Back Room old fashioned is a great choice for a cocktail.

Really good from start to finish, we sat at a booth near the front, and ordered a bottle of the La Crema Pino Nior, tasted great, had the NY Strip cooked to a perfect medium and my wife ordered the pork chop, sides were the mashed potatoes and cream spinach. All were excellent.
Before dinner, we did try the mozzarella appetizer made with ricotta cheese mixed in, WOW, superb!!
The desserts we chose were the cheesecake, and a bourbon pie which was a house special that night. This experience was an A+ all around, Chef Thomas and his team did remarkable job. Service was fantastic throughout.

On vacation in Orlando, my wife and I were looking for a good steak dinner in a restaurant we had not tried before. On line reviews and an undated excellent review from the Orlando Sentinel convinced us to take a 45 minute, 30 mile drive to give the "Back Room" a try. The restaurant is located in a dying strip mall sandwiched between 2 other restaurants. Upon entering we were greeted by a friendly hostess who seated us promptly. The decor was from the 90's when the place must have been first built. Our server took our drink orders at which point I was informed that they didn't carry the rum I requested (Myers's) so I had to substitute for a different cocktail. She informed us that since it was Sunday the restaurant served a special prime rib dinner. It sounded delicious so my wife ordered it - queen cut medium rare and charred (another restaurant special which we assumed was their version of Pittsburgh rare). I ordered their Back Room burger, which the menu wrote was the best I would ever have. Shortly later the server came back to advise me they were out of hamburger. Now it was 7:30 P.M. and the restaurant closed at 9:00 but how could they run out of burgers? Now I was rushed to decide on another entree when I had anticipated eating the best burger I would ever have. The prime rib was tasty but at least 50% fat. Considering the cost we expected it to be on par with Morton's or the Capital Grill, sadly it wasn't. To sum this all up, save your money, gas and time and go to the Texas Roadhouse.

this steakhouse is very good in service and food, the drinks they make are very good and the wine pairing is superb..I have not eaten any fish there so I cannot comment..the prime rib on Sunday is also very good..
if you are looking for fast food atmosphere then this not the place for you, great food takes time to cook as i have explained to others that have accompanied me there...i also enjoy the food at Ruth Chris's and the quality between the two places is hard to distinguish except the Backroom Steak House is a shorter drive for me...thanks for all the great service these past years.....

This is my third time (11/10/18) at this restaurant. This was by the the most unhappy I’ve been. When my plate was brought out, the vegetables (brocolini/asparagus) were cold. My steak was mild at best. When the server said that it was a hot plate, the plate was cold.

They “fixed” the issue but I had to wait between 5-7 minutes for my food while my wife enjoyed hers. The veggies were warm (not hot) and the steak was still on the warm side. I’m glad it was addressed but when you’re paying about $40-$50/plate, you expect a higher standard.

The next time I go out for a steak, I may go to a different location.

This was our first time at this restaurant. We had an outstanding dining experience. Our filets were absolute perfection. The sides were fantastic, especially the sweet potato fries and asparagus. Service was professional, yet friendly, which made for a comfortable and relaxing meal. We will most certainly return and will recommend to our family and friends.

We have been here multiple times and I always wait till the 3rd or 4th time dinning to make a written review. It's one thing to cook a perfect filet once.. but when you do it 4 times in a row, then others need to find out about this family owned restaurant. Most recently my son and I stopped in for dinner after a perfect day relaxing on the boat. Staff was awesome, great wine list, chicken noodle soup is AMAZING, and our filet's were cooked to perfection! Add the loaded baked potato and we were happy, stuffed, and no doubt we will be back in soon to enjoy another great meal close to the house.

Many of my local Apopka friends have encouraged me to have dinner at the Back Room. Made a reservation for 4 so my husband and I could reconnect with another couple. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was awesome. Filets are a bit pricey at $40 but I do believe it was the best steak ever. I made another upcoming reservation so that we may enjoy a lovely family Christmas meal in the near future. A+

A friend took me here for my birthday. Her first time. She had the filer & said it was perfect. I’ve been here several times but haven’t been in about two years. I had the prime rib special. We were there at 5:00pm so should have had first cut of prime rib which I requested rare. The prime rib was not really rare. The meat was tough & chewy. I was disappointed in my choice.
