Our first meal at a restaurant in over a year. It was a early Mothers Day for Gail - our daughter flew in from New York to be with us. Great food - Great service - Great ambience - Great place!

thanks!

The ambience was lovely! The service was excellent.
The food was just okay.
We ordered a few starters - Deviled Eggs (delicious), Brussels Sprouts (super vinegary and and sour and just missed the mark) and the Scallops. We were fairly appalled when our $18 scallop starter came out and it was only 2 scallops. 100% not worth $9.00 a scallop.
For dinner we had Filet Mignon - which was good - but not $48 good.
Dessert was the Rhubarb/Strawberry Shortcake that only tasted like strawberries and was super dry. Could have been fixed with a Rhubarb sauce on top.
All in all probably wouldn't visit again.

This was a very pleasant surprise of a restaurant. Nice outdoor patio, delicious food, great staff, very good COVID protocols. Just a tad pricey, so a wonderful special occasion spot. The 12-cheese biscuits were a stand out appetizer and the seared ahi tuna was done just the way I like it: a bit black and very blue. And I understand the brunch is great as well. We'll be trying that soon. It's come a long way from a Howard Johnson's.

I love this place so much! The food is great, the service is exceptional, and the overall vibe is just super cool. The shrimp tacos are my favorite thing and the spicy margaritas are truly festive. I 100% recommend this place!!

Birthday. Frustrating not to be seated until entire party arrives. Made no difference if we were seated or not. Otherwise all good.

Absolutely gorgeous atmosphere. Made a reservation and the whole table felt like the table we got, 6 seater in front of fireplace, was the best in the restaurant. Cozy, relaxed, fun atmosphere. Food was fairly priced and cooked perfectly, however, I will say the potatoes and shishoto peppers were a little under seasoned for my liking. Charcuterie board was perfect for two people. Service and atmosphere were the stars of our evening and we felt very taken care of. We can’t wait to go again!

They are safe but wanted to fit my party near a plant with a lot of flies. They quickly moved us to another table but how did they not notice that there were so many flies flying around. Service was good they they charged us for 4 chicken dishes when we only ordered one.

tried checking if they still had available tables for a saturday brunch, and luckily we got one while we’re on our way too! we’ve been eyeing this place for the longest time and so happy we got to enjoy the beautiful weather in their patio, we enjoyed the pitcher of mimosa we got and their food was great! i loved the deviled eggs so better try that one out when you visit them! all in all it was a great experience and we’ll definitely be back and try their dinner next time!

lovely ambiance outside. sorry to say the food left a little (or alot) to be desired.
we asked for a burger medium because we were told that would be a little red and pink. it was totally overcooked and dry. we asked for the regular french fries to be crisp and well done. no crisp, no well done, no flavor.
cannot recommend for the meal we had but i know the tapas type appetizers, before covid, was wonderful here.

The Front Yard's delightful patio is a wonderful destination for festive and fun outdoor dining. The menu is terrific and the rose special at lunchtime is a great deal. My friends and I had a fabulous catch up over lunch and felt very safe, comfortable and well taken care of.

The last two times we have come for lunch - we have a reservation, and it takes at least 15 minutes to get sat. The front is disorganized and the staff is always overwhelmed. Need to get that fixed as it’s very annoying and causes us to questions going back.

Lunch at the Front Yard and the food was great and the atmosphere perfect. Our server was absolutely wonderful! I am a vegetarian and asked that the Chop salad be made with no salami and that was done with no problem. The "taste" of the potato leek soup was wonderful! Now I wish I would have gotten a bowl! Highly recommend this place for a girls night out or a lunch with friends. I am planning on having my friend's birthday celebtration there in a few weeks and I know the girls will love it!

It may be due to COVID, but we were disappointed in our last meal at the Front Yard! The quality of the produce was poor, and undercooked. We are usually happy with the food, and often bring out of town guests here to enjoy the lovely patio. I’d still try it again.

They practically ruined my birthday. 4 out of 5 of us were there. We had one person who was coming half hour later so they refused to seat us until all five had arrived. We had to sit outside in the cold. It really upset me. Then they wouldn’t allow us to have my birthday cake. I probably should have called and checked in advance to see if it was ok. They also told us we had to order all the food at once. We couldn’t order anything afterwards. There were several other ridiculous rules as well and the food was very mediocre to lousy. I won’t go back.

I love this restaurant. There's nothing better than sitting outside eating a delicious meal especially on lovely summer nights. Or during a pandemic. The wait staff is fantastic. The food is wonderful. The ambience is perfect. This is my go to place.

Venturing out during Covid restrictions is made so much easier by the Front Yard’s well-spaced tables on the patio. Whether for dinner or lunch, the service, food, drinks and ambience can’t be beat. Each time we come with friends it feels like a very relaxed party. It’s unnecessary to detail what we ate and drank last time, because we’ve been several times and it’s all consistently good.

The Service was perfect, staff were friendly & helpful.
We felt a little bit cold they turned the heater on for us they also provided pillows to keep us warm!
For drink we got the La piñela it was delicious. We ordered Zoe’s pepperoni flat bread & we loved it! shrimp & grits was super yummy!
Beautiful ambiance,even though I thought the place to be cozier because in pictures I saw the outdoor part with the fireplace I thought it’s the main outdoor dining & it’s the biggest part which looks more cozy, but it’s ok still it’s a nice place!
