This place has delicious food and authentic Caribbean dishes like jerk chicken, jerk port, plantain, rice and beans, and spice sauce if you want it. I highly recommend it. It is located in a tricky location for parking, and looks like a beach side place,...More

A true hole-in-the-wall establishment we very flavorful jerk chicken and curry goat. The corn bread is homey and goes well with the meats. Not a lot of seating and parking can be tricky, but worth the trip.

Food was ok. Nothing to shout about. Will try it again for breakfast one Saturday. Prices were ok. Not over priced.

Finally got a chance to eat at Back-A-Yard, it is worth all the hype! This is a hole-in-a-wall, less than 10 tables inside the store and 2 or 3 more outside. There was not a long line when we went but there definitely was a...More
