Located in a wooded area, The Back Burner is top drawer. We arrived for a late lunch. In another room was a group of about 10 ladies sharing a group outing. The food was impeccable. Between the three of us we eventually decided on Shrimp Grits, Grilled Scottish Salmon, and Chicken Caprese. The food, service and atmosphere was relaxing --... More

This place is so quaint and cozy. In all my 21 years of being alive AND living in Macon I had never been here before!! My grandmother and I decided to go and it couldn't have been better. I started with the duck app which was amazing then for our entrees we both got the seafood trio. It was to... More

Awesome food with a quaint atmosphere. We all had different entries all were delish. The deserts were to die for. I like going for lunch and getting fried grouper, so good.

It was a beautiful autumn day so I dined outside. Lots of good choices on the menu but I opted for the grouper. It was delicious with a nice house salad, tasty potatoes and different style hush puppies. I had the (pricey) bread pudding for dessert. It was good but not nearly as good as my mom made 70 years...

While evacuated from the coast due to hurricane Mathew and with time on our hands we looked for a nice restaurant with good reviews. This lives up!. Although tucked away and almost hidden from the street it's worth the effort spent to find it. Food, presentations and service that would make this little jewel a winner just up the road... More

We ate at the Back Burner on Friday night and both of us had a great meal. I had the salmon which melted in my mouth and my husband had the half of lobster special. The food was prepared perfectly and presented very nicely with vegetables and fingerling potatoes. This is a very nice restaurant but is off the beaten... More

Went here one Saturday evening and was surprised at how uncrowded it was at 6:30. We were greeted quickly and sat in the glassed enclosed front porch. Our waitress was very efficient and knowledgeable about the entrée's and specials. We started with the smoked salmon, which was plenty to share among the 4 of us, and it was very good.... More

We have eaten lunch twice in the last few weeks. Both times the food was excellent and the service very good. It was pleasant to sit and visit with friends and not be rushed. Good food, good service and a very reasonable price at lunch.

When my wife and I are on date night this is our first choice for the food is always very good as the atmosphere and price. Mid range pricing perfect for date night. When the weather is nice we especially like to eat outside. The dining room is small and at first glance not as intimate as would be preferred... More
