I like that Backyard is set back from the main road. Not too many people dining today at 4:30 pm. Loved the prime rib and the sirloin, garlic mashed and salad bar. Had a tasty margarita. Festive, with families enjoying the holiday season.

Love the salad bar! The salmon is always really good, along with the dill sauce! Love that they have ice cream drinks, like brandy Alexanders, that can be hard to find at times!
