Goodness knows it's taken me long enough (and I appreciated the emails prodding me along), but I'm finally in the process of reviewing The Backyard restaurant in Milton.
I'm not finished, but I wanted to tell you about a couple of the stars of the show: First, Grit Fritters! Like grits? These are buttery, cheesy and creamy all at once, and they remain moist even as they cool. A light, flavorful crust enrobes the little morsels. If these consistently come out of the kitchen the way I had them today, you're gonna love 'em. Second: The cookies! mudslide and snickerdoodles stand out, though the oatmeal raisin and chocolate chips are close contenders.
A full review of the restaurant will be posted soon, but if you happen to be driving west on Rt. 16, The Backyard is on the left just past Po'Boys before you get to the light at Union St. They are open Mon. – Sat. 7 a.m. 'til 9 p.m. but that could change at any time. Check their hours 302-684-3440. Check out the website by clicking here.
