Saturday night family meal, small place but don’t be fooled, service was friendly and great. The kitchen rocked every dish. Mussels were a big hit, burgers were quality no doubt. Bar drinks were great, definitely an enjoyable experience!

Back Bay has been open in AC since 2003. We pride ourselves on great service, delicious food and fantastic atmosphere and views. In the warmer months we feature outside dining and bar. We are the home of the Basin Mason, a 32oz mason jar beverage. We have a large variety of craft beers. Nightly on our upstairs deck we do a sunset toast to say goodbye to the daylight :)
