I went with a couple of the locals and this place is very popular. I cant remember if you can make a booking but it is well advised to do if you can. The food comes in big serves and you have the choice of taking a to go box.

I love Bison Burgers and I can get them here. Gluten Free options available too. This place is very popular with the locals. Be prepared to wait or go when its not normally meal time.

I took my daughter there this week for our traditional lunch. Hostess staff has often been less than welcoming, (lack of warmth, no smiles, etc.) but we always get over it quickly due to great wait staff and fantastic food. The tuna steak, either as a salad or sandwich, is excellent. There's plenty to share, if you want to make... More

Certain employee makes this place not as friendly as it used to be. Atmosphere is definitely affected in negative way. My family will not be back and have not been back for a little while now.

Our family of 18 was celebrating 4 birthdays. We were given a private room. Our waitress, who had been there for 16 years, was absolutely the BEST! Kept all of our glasses full at all times. Thanks to her, I would give Backstreets an above average rating.

We arrived at the restaurant at 6:10. We were told it would be a 25 minute wait. It was 6:50 when we were seated. This was especially frustrating because a party of 4 who came in after us was seated before us. We were finally seated in a room in the back along the wall. Our whole dinner we kept... More

Prices are a little higher than average, good atmosphere but average food. Not bad, clean bathrooms and nice staff.
