About the Company

Hallback’s Bar and Grill is deeply rooted in family. The Hallback’s, serve up homemade recipes with a side of an exceptional view at the Lakeland Linder Airport. You can watch planes land on the runway as you enjoy dishes such as the Shrimp and Crab Creole, the Mahi Mahi or the Hallback’s pride and joy BBQ Ribs.

The Hallback’s have been in the business of keeping bellies full and faces smiling for over 15 years. Within those years they are sculpted family recipes and secret techniques such as the smoking of their barbeque. While the Hallback’s take pride in their food they also want every person who steps through their door to feel like part of the family. 

They offer exceptional service and a cheerful staff. Whether the landing of a plane causes it, a kind word from your server or that first bite of a rib, you will leave with a smile.

Yelp Review

Detailed Review by Deke K. 4 Out of 5 Stars I was anxious to try the new restaurant in the old location at the Lakeland airport.  It is a premium view restaurant, sitting over the tarmack on the second floor of the airport building. (Elevator access as well as stairs).  The music was pleasant background, not disruptive to conversation. That alone is a five-star feature. The hostess sat people with the finest seats first (without asking).  It was a wonderfully positive entrance to the new place.

I would like to know who "Hallback" is, he's off to a great start with new innovation to an old place.  I was presented with a great, lavish 3-page menu.  The waitress had my drink immediately, was very attentive but not invasive and had a great attitude and smile.  She also knew her menu well.

The decor is cranberry and navy with dark green thrown in.  Model & RC Airplanes hang from the ceiling, a giant mural is on the wall, booths and seats are premium quality. The room is spacious and inviting.  Interestingly, there is LOTS of Buccs memorabilia on the walls including autographed photos with personal congrats from peeps like Ronde Barber and Mike Singletary, leading me to believe the restaurant is related to former Bucc Robert Hallback.

I began with a salad with champagne vinaigrette.  The dressing was well-balanced and the romaine-based salad was generous and fresh.  My entree was a bbq sandwich.  The restaurant boasts "best in town".  I found it a great sandwich.  The pork was flavorful and  moist, the bun was soft. It came splashed with a largely catsup flavored BBQ sauce with just the right amount to be tasty but not messy. (Personally, I like more of a bite and wetter.)   It came with a side of cole slaw (even tho my selected side was the salad), probably to honor those who like slaw on their bbq.  It was a good slaw (not as good as Catfish Country) but with a hint of seasoning I did not like (maybe dill?)  The meal was filling but not stuffing.

Entrees (and appetizers) run about $10 ($15 if you want two sides).  The day's special was meat loaf but they were sold out by my arrival at 12:30.  Lobster bisque is always on the menu.  The fish dishes looked heavenly. Sides included dirty rice, oatmeal, rice pilaf, asparagus, fruit and ran about $4 as ala carte items. They had a list of $10 yum salads like "Lakeland Citrus Salad" with raspberry vinaigrette.  It is open odd hours, like 11 to 3, then again for supper and evening hours.

What would run it to five stars for me?  A fancier type of bun, more consistently sized pork pieces, a dill pickle!  I did catch the flavor of fish on two of my bites--leading me to believe the food handler was flipping someone else's fish while also fitting my pork into the sandwich (hopefully with a glove. ha)  That's a big NO NO.  I didn't see a dessert list.  The booths have headsets and a box with dials but no invitation to use them nor suggestions as to how.  I imagine it connected with the air control tower and would have been fun to listen.  I also think a nice touch would be Germ-X hand-wipes at each table.  The restroom is not nearby and this would help present cleanliness and "class act" to patrons.

I won't hesitate to bump it a star with another great visit.
