Delicious food! Wonderful service. Hubby and I both enjoyed the meatloaf, daughter said the burger is second best in the world (after mine) and little guy loved his pb&j with yogurt and fruit.
great place for casual fun dining before the theatre. Awesome shrimp skewer over my Big Fat Greek Salad that was crisp and delicious.
Convenient location to theaters. Food was great and liked creative drink menu.
Busy, Saturday lunchtime. We ordered two appetizers, two entrees and a dessert. One app came out only after we reminded them twice. Both chicken sandwiches were tasty but definitely not freshly grilled. Temp was too lukewarm to be fresh, cheese unmelted on one sandwich. Both sets of fries were also not hot. We requested a new batch which we got and they’d probably been sitting around as well. Lukewarm. With these multiple issues, you’d think maybe a manager would stop by or the server might apologize. No. On our way out, the manager was inside the bar laughing as he texted on his phone. Disappointed. Neat atmosphere, grateful for the gluten free menu.
Great service. Tasty food and cute atmosphere. We got there just as they open for bunch. Filled up fast but was not overwhelmingly loud. Right down the street from the Opera House. Convenient for theater goers.
Everyone enjoyed their meal. Much more than a backyard bbq place. Will go back.
Sat near door very cold
The chicken wings appetizer was terrific and the cornbread is always good. The salmon was very tasty.
Excellent pre show meal. Good location, not far from theater district.
Made a reservation at Back Deck as I was taking my daughters to see Mean Girls next door. We were seated immediately (we were a little early). Ordered the Brussels sprouts appetizer. It was amazing! Then onto a couple salads and plain pasta for one of my daughters. Both salads were dressed perfectly. I got the shrimp Greek which was the perfect size. We couldn’t believe how quick everything came out and how good it was. Our server was great too. We never felt rushed. Would definitely go back!
Great because you can make reservations on Open Table and it's within walking distance of the Opera House. The menu doesn't change much and could use some refreshing. Service is great and very attentive. Just needs more food choices!
One of our “go to” before the theater. Waiter was inattentive and disinterested in us. Warm food came out cold. Will be a while before we come back
Back Deck is my go-to for before shows at the Opera House. The food is delicious and the service is friendly!
Went before a play, delicious as always!
Excellent service! Hostess was friendly. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. The waitress was friendly and attentive. Good was very good and my cocktail was delicious.
Place has gone downhill
Our service was excellent, however, the food was fair. I ordered a tossed salad as a starter with ranch dressing. The salad was only lightly dressed and the dressing had no flavor. I had to ask for extra dressing to make it pallatable. The pork porterhouse chop was overcooked and dry with a tasteless blueberry sauce on it. The grilled sweet potato and brussel sprouts were over done.
All in all a disappointing meal. It has been a while since my wife and I have eaten at the Back Deck and I will not be coming back anytime soon. This is unfortunate as it is very convenient to the Opera House for a meal prior to our shows.
The chefs need a wake up call.
I really enjoyed my dinner. It is an affordable option in the theater district. I have been before and will return again. They have great gluten free options as well!
Our server was fantastic! Two of us had the meatloaf, precooked, then over grilled into a sawdust-dry, hard to swallow imposter for food. My SO had the skewered ground lamb...same reaction as meatloaf. Mary had the veggie burger...ditto. Never again!
Once again, the perfect place to eat before heading to the Boston Opera House.
Thank you for another lovely experience.
Came here for a late lunch early dinner before seeing a Broadway show. Pleasantly surprised by the ambience. Food was delicious. Service was great! Would definitely come back again.
Waitress was pleasant and attentive. Meal came out right away. Dessert took a very long time, and even she remarked about it.
Went for brunch before an Opera Hall event. Sat down to dirty seat cushions and water glasses with film. Waiter was fine and took our order promptly. Food was delivered fairly promptly considering the place was crowded. My food looked fine until I notice a hair. I returned the food and asked for only a yogurt and fruit since I did not have time to wait but it took a very long time to get a simple yogurt and fruit. The waiter brought the bill and added that the food I did not touch with the hair was comped. I was very surprised that he offered that as if it was not expected and should have comped the four dollar yogurt and fruit as well.
Good food and great service. So convenient to reserve a table in open table.
Super convenient when you are going to the Boston Opera House. Great food and nice brunch food on Saturday.
Good meal before Opera House. Reasonable wait. Interesting selection. Decent price.
The food was very good and the staff were awesome about handling my food allergy. Our only disappointment was the appetizer we ordered - cornbread (only one I could get due to allergy) was awful. It tasted bitter and was so dry.
Food was delicious. The restaurant has a menu that provides a good mix of standard choices and unique items. It was very refreshing not to find all the same menu items as every other local restaurant. Service was great! After dinner we only had twenty minutes before we had to leave for our show and the waitress was able to expedite our dessert, so we didn’t miss out. I would recommend eating here and I will be returning.
Food was hot and I had a burger and cooked perfect. Will definitely go back and so convenient to the Boston Opera House.
It was nothing special. If you are looking for a quick meal before a show and don’t want to spend too much then you could go here. Would go here again before a show.
Excellent food and service. My new go to spot when dining before any Boston shows. Convenient to all venues.
Loved the food, the ambiance and the waitstaff were awesome! Def would go there again!
Had a great dinner date with my 5-year old daughter.
We loved this place, salads are outstanding especially the warm pasta salad with chicken. Very relaxed atmosphere, excellent staff, friendly.
Very good-waiter was excellent.
While I would eat there again and tout it to others, it was a bit too energetic. It was loud and chaotic with people moving around, frequently passing by our table which was in a busy lane. The service was good considering the size of the crowd, so it was difficult to catch our waitress's eye. She did follow up after our order was received. Our table was next to a divider with people on the other side facing us! Not too private. We hope the next visit will be when it's less crowded. Next time, when I make the reservation, I'll ask for a better table location.
Very good food at a reasonable price.
EXCELLENT service and food. We really enjoyed ourselves!
Service was great as well as atmosphere...but corn bread was dry and not edible unfortunately.
This is my go-to place for a burger after a movie or before catching a train home. Food is good, wait staff friendly and efficient, a nice comfortable vibe.
