The Back Room Old Fashion hits the nail right on the head. I had the Pacific Salmon and it was the best I've had since I was last in Seattle. The salmon was tasty, cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth.

Very good food at a reasonable price. The steaks were just a little over cooked for "medium" but were still very tender and juicy. Over all the quality was very good and prices reasonable. Definitely worth a repeat.

We love this steakhouse we have been going at least once a month and We go here for every special occasion in our family. The staff is amazing and the food is outstanding! We have never had a bad experience here. The owner comes around every single time we have been and ask how your meal was. And the bartenders are the best around! Go on Sunday so you can enjoy the prime rib it’s only served on Sundays it is amazing!!!

I am not a fan of a table where one side is a wall and a booth type setting and the other side is chairs.

The Backroom Steakhouse never disappoints. The food is absolutely delicious, service impeccable and good atmosphere. The prime rib is perfection and the ribeye was delicious. A must try is the sweet potato fries and the calamari. We always come here for a perfect meal!

My first time dining at The Backroom Steakhouse. The food was delicious. Was for an anniversary dinner so atmosphere could have been quieter/more romantic. But overall a great dinner & restaurant in Apopka.

My wife and i have been here several times over the last couple of years. We like to eat here as our "When something special has happened." The best thing about The Backroom is that we are never disappointed with our visit. The food, service, and atmosphere are always pleasant. We would recommend eating here to anyone from special occasion to just a great dinner. Best Steak in Florida!

This visit, I ordered the new Australian lamb chops. They were excellent! As always, the Old Fashion Bourbon was the best you will find anywhere. The place was busy with lots of happy faces, including my wife and I. See you again soon!

Right here in my hometown, who would have guessed? One of the best steakhouses in the country! Great prices for steaks which include two delicious sides, attentive service, and lots of ambience in the room. Lots of bread before the meal. The ribeye was fabulous, combined with the garlic mashed potatoes and Caesar salad. We will be back very soon!

Great experience! The server knew the menu and specials very well and helped to suggest appetizers and entrees that we all loved. The calamari was cooked perfectly and had a really yummy sauce to go with it. I had the filet oscar with asparagus and risotto. The steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly and it was delicious. We were checked on frequently and empty plates were taken away promptly. Would definitely recommend Backroom to family and friends.

My ribeye steak was one of the best I have ever had, and was cooked perfectly. Service was great as well, and the server made us very comfortable with their handling of my daughter's shellfish allergy. We will definitely be back!

My friend and I had heard about the hamburgers. It was hard not to order a filet as they’re amazing. So was the burger. Ed came by to greet us and Jennifer was amazing as ever. Great wine too. We love this restaurant.

We made reservations and asked for a quiet table to celebrate our anniversary. It was awesome. Not one thing was bad. The service was phenomenal as well ad the food and ambiance. It is pricey, but worth every penny. Much better than the expensive chain restaurants!

Our waitress was delightful and the service was great. Our appetizer was good, but my steak was so chewy and full of grizzle. I selected a ribeye, thinking that it would have good flavor and texture, it had neither. I thought my meal was expensive for what I got. I have no plans to return.

Food was ok. It’s not a fine steakhouse. There is a dress code but people were let in in flip flops and bathing suits on Sunday night. With baseball caps on backwards. We made it a big deal to our kids to look nice and adhere to the dress code and, well...
Restaurant was not busy but food took 45minutes. ? Sorry but I do not see the value in the place. We won’t return.

We have dined here several times and always have a great meal. Not only are the steaks done superbly, I am a seafood person and always have a nice selection of seafood. They offer nice wines by the bottle or glass and hand crafted cocktails. You cannot go wrong with this wonderful restaurant by drink, meal or service

My wife and I have dined at this restaurant several times since it opened. We had not been there in a few months and decided to invite a business guest for dinner. My wife enjoys the salmon, but really looks forward to the risotto. Unfortunately, she was very disappointed in the texture and taste and I may have a difficult time getting her to come back. If you like steaks, potatoes, wedge salads, etc., this is a great place.

We had heard good things – the Back Room did not disappoint and exceeded our expectations! My filet was a touch more cooked than I’d prefer (however still within standards), but the flavor and texture was excellent. Casual, comfortable atmosphere and great service – a good choice for a nice night out with friends without having to go into Orlando!

Not at all what you would expect from the description or the reviews. The atmosphere is more light sports bar than steak house. Waitstaff is inconsistent in their appearance and handling of the menu. Food is overdone at best, some seems to come from the Beef o'Brady's next door. They are charging Capitol Grille prices for something just north of Golden Coral quality food. I hate to say this; I really wanted to like it and find a gem in Apopka.
