Brooklyn’s in My Backyard

With their wrought iron tables, wooden deck around the bar, and other mismatched patio furniture the decor at Brooklyn’s Backyard looks just like someone’s backyard. Although the atmosphere screams hamburger, I ordered other entrees on both of my visits.

As a first timer, I ordered a spinach salad with bacon, feta, and Greek vinaigrette dressing with a slice of cheese pizza. Both delicious.


This week I returned and thought long and hard about the build your own burger but ended up ordering a meatball sandwich with french fries. The sandwich was good but the fries were not as crispy as I like.

Upon entering the restaurant I noticed an award “King of Wings” and a friend raves about the pizza. The daily specials listed on the chalkboard include country fried steak and a Seafood Bucket with crabs, shrimp, corn…looks like a low country boil served in a bucket. Yum!

And did I mention you can order s’mores? Graham crackers, chocolate bars, skewers, marshmallows, and a small fire in a pot delivered to the table for a fun dessert.

It’s nice to have another local restaurant nearby with many menu items waiting to be tried. But the next time I’ll be ordering a burger.
