The Back Room Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Amateur level kitchen staff. Everything was overseasoned making finding the natural flavor impossible. The ceasar salad was served like a soup in dressing. Absolutely terrible. Meat was dry and overcooked. It was Valentine's day, and despite making a reservation two days in advance, we were told the only available booking was 9:30 PM. The restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived and we were the last customers by 10:30 PM. Avoid!
We’ve been to this restaurant several times. Sometimes really good other times not so much. Happily this time was really good. Soup salad and sea bass was prepared and presented well. Service was great. Jennifer is professional, well spoken and attentive. Ambiance is good for Apopka but by no means exceptional. Hope this is a trend that will continue.
We think this is one of the best steakhouses around. This visit was the first time out of a dozen visits quality of the steaks slipped. Tissue in the interior of the NY strip made a few bites chewy. It is hard to detect in raw meat. But it happened. I doubt it will happen again.
After reading what seemed like endless amazing reviews of the backroom,i was pretty excited to try it out! What i experienced wasn't what i had expected however..The portion of my meal was very disappointing. If the food quality had been what i expected then the price i paid for the Shrimp and scallop alfredo would've been worth it. The noodles were way undercooked,and the shrimp and scallops were pretty tasteless. My husband ordered the porter house steak with broccolini as a side. His steak which was supposed to be medium rare,was pretty tough. Also,nothing special about the taste either. I am really disappointed in our dining experience. I hope to visit again and have a different experience!
Always consistent, always a great dining experience! My favs are the Blood Orange martini, the Siam gimlet (vodka,) the ribeye steak, creamed spinach, any of the salads, and the to die for creme brulee. Not a quick in and out type of restaurant, but the meals are always a treat, service is very good and we always enjoy our visits. One of our favs!
Was expecting more of a steak and ale type feel did not expect sports being played over the bar no tablecloth's next time we do steaks it will be Longhorn or outback same quality for half the price.The next time I want to spend that kind of money will go to Ruth Chris.

We recommend this restaurant because it is the only sit down restaurant in Apopka. All the others are fast food with chairs. Food is cooked well, served well but nothing is great. Wine by the glass is overpriced for a short pour. Average value if you don’t want to drive to WP or College Park. Just glad we have one sit down restaurant.
Have been here and purchased meals both take out and in house dining. They never got the takeout wrong. Portions are small for what you pay for, although steak is cooked correctly 100% of the time. Chef seems to use a bit too much salt, except on the steaks. Crab cake I rec'd was very salty, as was some risotto. Portions are too small for what you get overall and I don't generally eat that much. Open Table reservation system does not allow you to get more specific, for example, in a romantic setting, to request intimate tables/booths. We enjoyed our 33rd wedding anniversary, but so did the 4-person table right next to us. No privacy, and was VERY LOUD! Restaurant needs to invest in acoustic tiles for ceiling and walls, especially when busy on Friday and Saturday evenings.
My husband and I went to this restaurant to have our Christmas eve meal. The food was outstanding. I will admit I was somewhat skeptical about going to a "steak house" located in a strip mall atmosphere. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was outstanding. The ambience is old school steak house - nothing I would call fancy but a nice relaxed atmosphere, great for enjoying a meal with friends or a special occasion. We will definitely be going back and would definitely recommend! If you haven't made it to this local gem, you should.
One out of four steaks has several streaks of gristle running through it. This is happening more and more since the restaurant was enlarged...used to never have a steak with a bad spot in it. But the proprietor discounted the meal 50% that had the problem steak. Overall, I'd still recommend the BackRoom because when the steaks are good, they are VERY good. And if you get a bad one, tell the server immediately and they will make another for you.
This was our second visit. The food was awesome, wine selection is good. This past visit, for some reason, took us over an hour to get our food. There seemed to be plenty of staff for the amount of customers. I was just getting ready to say something, when our food came. It wasn’t like this on our first visit, so maybe it was just an off night. We will go back though.
