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.
