Absolutely horrible service. Had my out of state, California ID, checked twice by police officers and told I wouldn't be allowed in because of my "attitude" when told to confirm my ID with the police.... Had my ID confirmed to be real (twice) by the police and then thrown out by a bouncer for doing nothing. Horrible service. Will never spend another dime here again. Spreading the news to all my friends about how terrible this once great bar is. See More

I have been in college station for so long and wanted to try a new place in ng. Went head and ordered a drink at the bar. The bartender on the upper floor was really rude and made a really bad long On being asked, she said people dont pay me a dime as tip so you will get this. I said this is not fair, she said we will be thrown out of bar if she wants. Then several communications with the management who were nice and polite, we got a refund. They should hire better bartenders who are unnecessarily not frustrated. See More

One specific staff member, a bouncer, at this bar was the most inconsistent and disrespectful person I've ever come in contact with.

He notified me that the bar was closed early and that no one else..., no matter what circumstances, may enter the bar. I was trying to locate my group of friends that I was looking after, however, I completely respected that the bar closed early, and I proceeded to wait patiently outside of the bar for my group of friends/roommates with no argument whatsoever.

However, a few moments later, the staff member then went on to allow an entire group of 3-4 very drunk girls into the bar right in front of me, while hugging and grabbing on them, despite just telling me that the bar was closed. This type of inconsistency is unacceptable and is misleading/infuriating to customers. When I got upset about this unfairness, the staff member proceeded to yank me by my purse strap (scratching up my back in the process) and yell and me that I was not allowed to meet with my friends and take them home to safety.

This bar does not care about the safety of it's customers, and injured me in the process. I have never been treated this way at a bar in my life, and I am completely appauled that this type of treatment is accepted. I will not be returning to this bar, but I will be telling everyone I know to avoid this bar at all costs. A multitude of people witnessed this event and shared mutual feelings about the mistreatment, including strangers. This is unbelievable.

Well I did love this place until they took it upon themselves to add an additional $10 tip to my card. Watch out when you use cards! Keep a close eye on your account. I have contacted my bank to start... the dispute process. I also tried to reach out directly via a PM that was read but was not responded to. We definitely will not be back. What a shame. See More

Love this place! I use it as my personal HQ for 'Free Hugs Fridays' because of the always friendly and happy atmosphere it creates. Staff is great, non-judgmental and they find time to see that patron...s stay safe. Kudos to being able to put up with angry drunks in a civil manner and staying professional in the more crazy situations that I have been around to witness. Prices are not the lowest in town, but they are indeed very well priced for what you get and its awesome location! What really sells me here, the real reason I keep coming back, is the atmosphere and the people; I can't express this enough! If for some reason you get bad service, or feel like you were shafted, whatever, give it another few goes, maybe on a different night, maybe when you haven't had so much to drink ;) and I'm sure you will see the difference. Bartenders, managers and doormen are people too and they get stressed out, just like you! Everyone has a bad day once in awhile, don't let someone's bad day make your day bad too! Keep on keeping on and hopefully I'll see you at the Backyard on Fridays!

I had the worst experience here yesterday. I had a $25 voucher for the Backyard from an online site and presented it to be used. We bought $50 worth of food as the voucher dictated. Food was amazin...g, but when we went inside to start drinking we could never get anyone to acknowledge us. They even helped people that came to the bar after us. Then after a while we decided to just cash out and go somewhere else. When they were ringing me up, they gave me the bill for the whole amount and hadn't taken the voucher off. When I asked about it they said that the voucher was invalid. I told them that I had just gotten the voucher the day before. The manager came over and told us a big long story about they no longer did these vouchers and didn't know why the website allowed me to buy one. After telling him how upset I was and that we couldn't get any service and that this was our first time here, he didn't even apologize for the service and finally said he would comp our meal. He comped $25 of our meal which was the same amount of the voucher... I will never go back here. Whats sad is it actually looks like a cool place to be with lots of cool things to do. They just need better customer service and better management. See More

My girlfriend and I like coming to this bar and it's a good time, if you can even get in.

We arrived at The Backyard last night and my girlfriend showed the bouncer her REAL ID. He asked for her to p...ronounce her address and she did. The bouncer still told her that she was not old enough. She just turned 22... This is where it gets bad, the bouncer told her, "get out of here you illiterate f*****g b***h." And another bouncer called me a faggot. We went to go talk to the manager and all he said was "I'll have a talk with him". There needs to be something done about this situation. No lady deserves to be talked to the way the bouncer talked to her.

I hope the owner does something about this.

I asked for a bottle And thought It was on a special for three bollars. What I got back out of the five I spent was 50 cents. I asked why and the bar tender said I didn't know It was not on special so... i got charged full price. I said I want my money back and she said it's already in the system. I asked her for the manager and she took my drink away and my money and kicked me out. This place make me look at college station in a bad way. I tried to go to the bar next door and they told me I was not welcome. This bar is scum and Took my money and kicked me out and gave a bad name for me. I am just an out of town visitor and I get treated with disrespect. If you read this don't trust the bar tenders See More

The outside bar lost my credit card. More than likely gave it to someone else. Things happen, but this isn't the first place in college station to loose my card... liked the place a lot, now I'm to be a little more protective when I visit. See More
