"The Back Room" Steakhouse

Apopka's Local Hidden Gem

Did someone say; Neighborhood Steakhouse? This month we headed to “The Back Room” Apopka’s very own Steak House, and the rumors are true! It is a hidden gem.

Located at: 1418 Rock Springs Road, Apopka, Fl 32712. The Back Room Steakhouse is perfectly located for anyone living, working or visiting Apopka or the near by areas. Dress code is “ business casual” and the mood is laid back and not at all stuffy.

As soon as we entered we were greeted by a member of their friendly staff. We were promptly seated, given menus and offered drinks. The table bread was amazing. Careful not to fill up on that as they are quick to refill the basket. We decided to skip appetizers and go straight for the entrees.

Of course I ordered the steak and lobster dinner. Ella had the grilled Salmon and Jay went big with the Fillet. We all had a small Caesar Salad which was great for two reasons. One, the flavor, and two the size. Just enough to hold you over till your food arrives. And then…. The food arrived. Everything was perfectly cooked, and when you’re eating with family everyone shares, right? The salmon was flaky and flavorful. The lobster was buttery and soft. Both the steaks were well seasoned and cooked to perfection. We all enjoyed a variety of well paired sides that were great too.

My fellow foodie family members passed on dessert but I understood the assignment and wasn’t leaving without trying their famous key lime pie. It did not disappoint much like everything else The Back Room had to offer.

Other worthy menu mentions include: Some pretty hefty burgers, and extensive wine list and delicious salty steak fries and a host of other seafood, steak and dessert options.

So yeah. TBRSH gets 5 stars from this foodie, and it’s a must try if you’re in the area.

Till next time….. Gigi
