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!

Excellent time with superb service for a hamburger and sandwich spot. They have great drinks and beers. Sat upstairs and with a lot of room to enjoy. I come back again. Summer time will be great as the view of the inlet is very close.

We believe that service is a major component in dining whether shanty to fancy. Rachel made the meal even better at a place we already love. As she observed we made a sort of surf and turf of the silky shrimp in garlic paired with...More

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 :)
