One of our favorite places to eat. Food and service always outstanding. They also make a mean Old Fashion. Alex was our waiter and he is very attentive and informative.

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.

It’s okay! On par with Longhorn Steak House. Price is a little too high. Desert cake was stale.

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.

As always the food was excellent. Normally I order the sea bass or the pork chop but the dirty shrimp special sounded good so I tried it and was not disappointed. It was very flavorful and the shrimp were quite large. My date had the sea bass and she thought it was excellent as well.

First trip here. Took the wife out for Mother's Day. Meal was very good but not spectacular. They did a "char" on our prime rib which was great. We were very fortunate to draw Jennifer as our wait person, and she made it a very memorable occasion. It is amazing how a professional, friendly and efficient wait staff member can make an average meal into a 5-star. Despite the above average cost we will certainly go back. Thank you, Jennifer!

I have been several times for dinner but last Saturday night was not good at all. We always order steaks but this time decided to try the seafood pasta. We both had it but prepared differently. It was very dry like it had been sitting awhile and was just ok. Another person had the kabobs and the meat was almost non existent. We were very disappointed and took my family there and turned out to be a bad choice. If it had been my first time I don't think I would go back. We split a wedge salad and came out to be the same size of the single serving. Way over priced for what we got. If I go back it would only be for steak.

I had the filet, garlic mash and broccoli rab...All was very flavorful and cooked perfectly. We look forward to returning.

Took my mom there for dinner and it was a lovely experience. Ed (owner) stopped by the table and greeted us, then checked on us several times during the night. She had the pork chop and said it was the best - and my husband had a steak about which he raved. I would have liked my salmon to have been cooked a tad bit more - but I did not complain about it so I did not give them a chance to correct it. It was a great evening - and I highly recommend the Back Room!

We've been several times and it's been inconsistent... good and Not so good... Last time... Not so good... Sadly, The Service is Always mediocre. I really wish they could Educate the wait staff fully! They don't know the menu, can't answer questions about ingredients in a menu item, and the service is frequently inattentive! The steaks are usually good... but inconsistent. And not as good as Fleming's, and Definitely not as good as Christners in Winter Park! But they charge about the same per steak. This last visit was so disappointing that I don't think we'll be back. Food was poor quality, served cold, Long wait between appetizers and main course, the vegetable side dish was Soooo Salty, the steaks were not cooked correctly and the sever was so unpleasant! She never even asked how the meal was, and by the time she came back to check, She just wanted to know if we wanted dessert... So we didn't even get the opportunity to tell them that we weren't happy with the meals. And they obviously did not care. She was working several areas, trying to work the bar, making drinks and to be our waitress at the same time... Which meant we were ignored most of the time and made the service so slow. And she was so grouchy! We were Really disappointed overall.
