We have been regular customers at BACKFIN BLUES since it opened. Chef Bob has always sent us the birthday dinner voucher since we registered our email to receive it. With a $20 reduction in our dining bill, his always excellent chef quality entrees become a best value. I ordered my favorite entree, the scallops florentine. My Patti ordered the stuffed... More

We had brunch at this fabulous restaurant this past Sunday. There were so many options on their menu, it was hard to decide what to order. Started off with their famous Bloody Marys - very good! We had a breakfast entree (eggs Chesapeake) and a lunch one (chicken oscar) and both dishes were exceptional - we ate every bite! Our... More

BackFin Blues has been a family favorite for a number of years. And I thought I'd share yet another wonderful experience. My wife and I live on the south side of the Susquehanna River, so it's a short hike over to Port Deposit - a bit longer now with the temporary road work on Rt. 222 (so we leave a... More

We had dinner there for the first time. Everything ordered was fresh and delicious. Ahi Tuna, crab cakes, even the kids pasta. The staff was unbelievably friendly. Can't wait to go back! Heard they are opening a 2nd location.

Celebrating our Anniversary with a very nice dinner. Veal Oscar was very good. My husband had the ribeye. A little pricey for the casual atmosphere. Also a little loud because it's such a small place. But Great service and friendly staff!

I love BFBs and am so excited about Backfin McGraw coming to Havre de Grace. I have never had a bad meal here. The food is interesting and creative as well as their monthly drink specials. I love the small restaurant atmosphere and the back deck for outside dining.

We had a quick change of plans and felt lucky to be able to get in this little restaurant on a busy Thursday night. We had stuffed shrimp and a pan seared Barramundi both prepared perfectly. Great rolls, and nice service. A little pricey but delicious !

My husband and I had a wonderful meal on a Friday night sitting at the bar. My husband said let's try that steak for two. It came with a tomahawk rib-eye steak large enough for two peopke, two sides for two people and two salads all for $65 ..couldn't beat the price. Delicious housemate drinks.
