The bar was crowded also, but the turnover was quick and I found a table, near the bar with a great view of the guitarist/singer entertaining the patrons. The service was warm... More

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.

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.

Thank Al S
