I received an invitation to be a "substitute" in our local garden group. I accepted the invitation and then was told I need to bring a cheese tray along! I ran into the Back Burner to go and thankfully found Mary! She put together a collection of Cheeses and accompaniments that WOWED the crowd! Thanks for making me look good!

My wife and I stopped in for a drink but our bartender, Aine, suggested we try the $5 happy hour food - so we did. Wow! It was fantastic. We had some gourmet Brussels sprouts along with some bruschetta and a steak salad that were very tasty. Don't forget to squeeze the lemon on the sprouts to balance the flavor.... More

We had a party of 18 adults and 3 children in a private room. Food was excellent and service perfect. I was so impressed that everyone's dinner came out exactly at the same time. Highly recommend this place for any occasion

Six friends met for dinner. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. We all had the beef filet and one had it with shrimp scampi and the other with a crab cake. Our meals were delicious. Highly recommend.

We went last week. My wife loves their Pumpkin Mushroom soup.The special for Thursday was a Whole Lobster, some corn on the cob, and a few potatoes for 19.00. It will continue as a special all summer. We plan on eating their a lot on Thursdays. Bib was included. If you still have room, the deserts are excellent also.

Back burner has become one of our favorite places. Their pumpkin mushroom soup is hands down the best. We typically sit at the bar, but there is also a main dining room and a small room off the bar with a fireplace. The chef is creative and the food is always good. And best of all, its quiet So you...

Nice restaurant with excellent food. Came here for Valentine's day dinner so the place was much busier than usual. Service was understandably a bit slower, yet still very friendly. Food was excellent from the starter rolls, to appetizers, entrees and desserts.

Hello Marco, Thanks for the great review! Yes, we were at capacity on Valentines Day, which can tend to slow service a bit, but overall I think we executed well! See you on your next visit! Frank More
