I love a good barbecue place...And this was not it. The meat was low quality and the sides were worse. The staff was friendly though. It's seems they knew the food was bad too.

Kathys meatballs are Awesome, the chili is awesome, chowder is awesome.. I haven't really had anything here that I didn't like. Last year they had a fly issue but it seems that they fixed the problem, this is why I didn't give 5 stars. Maybe next year I can give 5 stars. Thanks for the yummy meatballs Kathy, Great job!!

I have been to the restaurant 3 times. Each time the food was just so so. Almost like frozen dinner quality. The worst part is that the bathroom was disgusting every time which makes you wonder what the kitchen is like. Also the wait staff in the bar was two young ladies who were very unfriendly and rude. Will not... More

I thought this was a barbecue joint. Not so. I was not expecting to see fish a day chips or meatloaf on the menu. I have to admit the meatloaf was pretty good although I would have enjoyed gravy. Hubby's salad was good also. We will go again.

The smoky cowboy burger was awesome. Very filling. However, the musician performing was outstanding! He covered classic rock and 90s alt songs and played some songs of his own. All of them were great.

Backyard is a local pub type of restaurant which has a variety of meals and appetizers for everyone. Happy Hour and sporting events draw locals for an active relaxing visit.There is an outside patio bar and table service when the weather permits. Food and staffing is exceptional with reasonable prices.

After a few bites into the Kansas City Salad I found small pieces, then whole pieces of rotten mesclun greens. At first I worked around it, when the server asked about my meal and saw the small debris pile I formed, it was immediately rectified. The salad was replaced with some of the freshest greens I have encountered and extra... More

Stopped here because of its proximity to the Holiday Inn that I was staying at. Excellent service and friendly staff. Food was delicious and the bartender was spot on. Good conversations and a great spot to catch the Red Sox game.
