Attention all reasonable adults, or rather anyone who has average, if not regular, standards for food and service. Our dinner at the Backyard Bar and Grille was downright good. Simply put, the service is satisfactory. Our food ticket (also known as a check, or "bill") arrived on time and was for the correct amount. Our waitress introduced herself warmly. When we sat down, she took our drink orders and recited the specials with gusto, even adding her own opinions and behind-the-scenes knowledge of the items. She even told us the soup of the day. Several times she asked if everything was ok, which they were. Service is clearly this place's forte. Well, maybe their food was bad... WRONG. It was great! I ordered the ceasar salad and french fries, which is a great way to tell the quality of a restaurant. They were to die for! In a good way! In short, they were delicious and totally edible. So far, so good. The sixteen dollar meal was way overpriced... NOT. It was a great deal! To the point, you should go here and spend your time and money. In a perfect world, this place would be open 24/7. However, in this broken world, they have to close at some point, to sleep.
I live in Enfield, Ct.,we have many restaurants to choose from, so when a new one opens I really do wonder why. On July 2, 2012 a new one opened, The Backyard Bar and Grill [this building was once a friendly's restaurant, you would never know it] this is a family owned business, and the family does work there. I have had lunch and dinner, the main attraction is the atmosphere, my first impression of the menu was great selection great prices, they have 3 pages of food to pick from, and if you want to alter your choice in any way they will be glad to do that, there is also a page for beer and wine. I have always been very picky about food as is everyone, the chef works hard in the back of the house, so the front of the house can enjoy their meal. I have not made a bad choice from this menu, and expect the same for many years to come
