Casual bar with American eats including charcoal-grilled meats & brunch amid retro lawn furniture.- Google
"I visited for brunch and had the pulled pork and eggs (odd choice, but tasty)."
"Great food, atmosphere and service and able to cater for dietary requirements."

We went for lunch in the middle of lunch rush hour with a toddler! Even do, great experience. Friendly staff, great food, nice atmosphere. I was super-impressed with the kid menu, most places just deep fry stuff!. Not here, this was a wonderful and big grilled piece of chicken breast, potatoes and carrots. My son loved it! So did we! Nice pulled pork sandwich and great soup.

Overall, a decent dining experience. I generally think feedback should be helpful, so I'm going to be fairly specific: Good highlights: 1) Nice ambience 2) Diverse selection of local drafts 3) Generous meat portion on tacos 4) Juicy, well-flavored steak and carnitas Need improvements: 1) Hostess was a bit cold (but the waitress was very nice) 2) Menu terms need clarifying (The potatoes on the side of the burger are listed as "fries" but are "home fries," and burger was not "smothered" in BBQ sauce but barely glazed) 3) Salad came out with the meal rather than before 4) Potatoes on the side were very burnt and tasted like they were made in old oil 5) The waitress brought out only one dessert menu (for the 4 of us)

The sirloin tips were amazing. Decent beer selection and friendly staff. If I come back to Boston I will definitely be stopping by

Food was wonderful and very reasonably priced. Our waiter (DJ) was amazing. They were very accommodating with dietary restrictions and substitutions. Great experience!

Good food and good atmosphere. A solid option for lunch. I wish their kitchen was faster.

I work near Back Deck and have been a few times. I figured out that I don't like the food because it just isn't fresh. There's something about it like it's all been reheated. I could be incorrect about what the cause is, but in the end I just can't bring myself to eat here. It's a nice space to sit in, with big windows that open to the street in good weather. The food falls flat unfortunately.
