traveled from central florida, staying overnight in macon, while heading further north on I-75. homey feeling in the dining room. good variety of delicious choices-appetizers and main courses-compliments to the chef. waiter service was helpful, excellent and attentive-couldn't ask for more. complicated to find the restaurant if not familiar with macon. check directions before heading out, and double check GPS,...

I am a down to earth person and I like my food the same way...simple. This place is quaint and the food is good but EXPENSIVE and FANCY.

Too many restaurants choose either great food and small portions or great portions and average food. The Back Burner exceeds expectations on both fronts!! We had Grouper and Sea Bass, pork tenderloin, New York Strip and chicken parm- everyone was thrilled with the quality of preparation and portions. So good!! And both bottles of wine we chose hits across the... More

Very good service food and drinks in a small city that sorely needs nice restaurants. The list of nice places in macon is short and the Back Burner is near the top of the list. Their lobster special is fantastic. And the seafood trio works each and every time.

I went here early one day for brunch. Took my son and we had the eggs benedict.Although the restaurant is not really kid-friendly, we both enjoyed our meal. I went back later for dinner on a date and had the boar which was very tasty. The duck ask an appetizer was good although slightly cold. The other appetizer was a... More

We stop for lunch or dinner every time we pass thru Macon. They have a nice selection of wines including the Vouvray we had last week. The Back Burner gets 4 stars in Moe's Dining Guide.

Excellent French bistro frequented by Maconites and a few visitors in the know. The new owners are even more talented than the original owners! Every item on the menu has been excellent and the portions are good size. You don't leave hungry, 5/5. Service: Friendly, helpful, and can be a little slower at busy hours, 4.5-5/5. Decor: Attractive small but... More

Visited several times before and Jason is great, food is good as well. Service this time with another server was less than desireable, not seated where we were told we would be. After waiting on several occasions for attention was lectured by another server in a very unprofessional manner. If not for anticipating a good meal we would have paid... More

Uggghhh..well, the service was good and the staff is friendly and the ambience is nice. But then there is the meal. Steak was awful. Supposed to be NY Strip..not sure what it was...bland. My husband's salmon was also bland but he liked the risotto. Dessert was mediocre, at best. We did like the scallop and crab cake appetizers. Should have... More
