We hadn't been to the Back Forty in many years, but had lately heard friends talk about how good the steaks were, so we decided to give it a try. We arrived early (5:00) on a Friday evening. There was no parking, but they did have a very friendly and attentive valet service. Good introduction to the restaurant. We were... More

Service was very good. We came off time a after lunch crowd. I love beef bones So the beef ribs were good. My husband had pork ribs. Found them to be moist, well cooked, and tasty too.

Sauced is decent but Back 40 is the sizzle...First they have a TV in the bathroom and a mini mason jar of peanuts on the table and they are Good peanuts. The wings are delicious and the Q is on point which they serve with a pickle/onion combo. I... More

The food and service were both excellent. We all had the ribs, several had Baked Potato, one had shoestring potatoes. The baked potato no longer is coated with salt and the shoestring potatoes had twice as much salt as needed. We all had salad, almost a meal by itself.

Picking a good happy hour spot that meets your individual requirements and needs is hard. No one place is perfect. Although I have had an experience with substandard service, what’s important is how the establishment resolves the issue and will the issues continue when you return. Giving the establishment the benefit of the doubt is key. Just because you have... More

This is one of our Friday go-to places before a movie. The drinks are a great start, and their regular menu boasts plentiful ribs, chicken and beef. The real deals are their "Junior/Senior" meals. A little less food, and a little less cost. And you get dessert with it. Closest thing to a Florida "early bird" I've found out here.... More

Was staying in the area and wanted something to eat close to our hotel. I expected an okay restaurant with mediocre food and service. The service was excellent (forgot waiters name but he was tall and skinny), very pleasant and attentive. Food was very good and tasty. I had the large piece of brisket (delicious), my wife had the BBQ... More
