In order to secure your seats, Make your Reservation Below

We here at the Backyard Ale House are so excited to be getting back to business.  We have missed all of our employees and fantastic customers.  We can’t hardly wait to see all of you again!  On Friday, June 5th Lackawanna County will move into the “Yellow Phase”, for us this means we will be able to open a limited portion (approximately 1/3 of our normal occupancy) of the Backyard Patio. 


 As we slowly come back from a long closure, we kindly ask guests to please remain patient with us as we adapt to this new environment with the updated rules and mandates from the Commonwealth.  We promise to work hard to provide the best experience possible given the current restrictions. 


  • With our occupancy severely limited, we have opted to institute a “Reservation Only” policy.

  • Walk-ups will be accepted only in the event that we have open availability.

  • Our online web portal will be open starting June 3, 2020 at 4PM.  We will only be accepting reservations through the portal.

  • To accommodate the high demand for reservations as well as our limited occupancy, we are asking guests to limit their stay to 1.5 hours for lunch, 2 Hours for dinner and weekend brunch.

  • A credit card will be required to hold a reservation.

  • “No Show” reservations will be charged a service fee of $50 if not cancelled within 1 hours of the reserved time slot. 


Planning your Visit:

In light of the Commonwealth’s MANDATED best practices for the health and safety for all of our guests and employees, guests will be required to:

  • Remain outside of the facility until escorted to your reserved table by a staff member.

  • Remain 6 feet apart unless you part of the same group.

  • Wear a mask covering the mouth and nose when not sitting at a table, this includes entering, exiting and using the restrooms.

  • Guests are required to remain seated at your reserved table while visiting the restaurant, please do not stand or congregate around a table


Additional Information:

  • We kindly ask guests that are experiencing any fever or cough to remain home and call for reservation cancellation.  We will waive any fees for guests who cancel within the service fee window who are experiencing symptoms.


Inclement Weather

  • In the event of inclement weather, we will kindly ask guests to settle their checks and return to their vehicles.  We will box any remaining food and bring it out.

  • Guests are not permitted to remain indoors to ride out the storm.
