Critic's Review

America's Backyard attempts to be everything to everyone; at one point they even tried to be a sports bar. They have some strange policies, such as free admission for Broward and Palm Beach residents. Clearly they're not interested in attracting tourists or those annoying Dade County Folks.

Kidding aside, America's backyard isn't your typical bar. It a multi-tiered patio structure with a bar and decks and a "stage". It reminds me of a Hampton's beach club (without the beach). They have contests, games, girls with hula hoops. Its a real party for the 20s crowd.

They claim to have a "full menu", but its really just bar food. Would you order a salmon dinner at a place like this? Burgers, wings, sliders, wraps and "beer-battered" chicken and shrimp.

It's hard to describe what it's like inside, so I'll let the video do the talking. This was Jan 15. The things that people will do for a free drink.....
