Meantime we enjoyed a drink on the porch, and Francis the chef presented himself, and took our order 15 minutes later .All the food was delicious, served in... More

My husband and I visited The Front Porch our last night in Eleuthera. Had we gone sooner I would have gone many more times! It was hands down the BEST meal I had in Eleuthera and Harbour Island. The stone crab was magnificent and the grouper was the best I've ever had (and I live on the gulf and eat... More

My wife and i stopped in to the Front Porch for a late lunch. Francis and Gina made us feel right at home. I had the Jerked Shrimp and my wife had broiled crawfish (lobster) and we shared the ceasar salad. Everything was delicious, and the host and hostess were very pleasant and accomodating. Love this place!

We had a very good dinner of grilled Wahoo. The restaurant made a custom tropical salad for us which was very good! The service was a bit slow, but that was ok because we are on vacation and just "chilling"!

Had a nice dining experience, Francis was the only person working and was really friendly. The view and location are great. Unfortunately, the food wasn't great. Had the special (tuna), it was very overcooked. The rice also was not cooked correctly, some kernels were hard. The flavor of the rice was good and the tuna had good seasoning. I would... More

What a special place - our favorite place! Sitting outside, overviewing the little harbour and being treated extreamly kindly by the owners, we had to go there twice. We had the best "Stoned" crabs and lobster tail of the entire island there. Order the traditional soup for the starter which, together with their very nice Pinot Grigio, makes a perfect... More

We had an 8:00 reservation on a Tuesday. We were the last 8 people in the restaurant. We had personalized service from Francis and Gina. They are great hosts. The dishes ordered were a grouper, shrimp and the T-bone steak. Everyone thought the food was very good. The two hosts chatted with us after the meal and answered many questions... More

My family and I took a trip to Eleuthera, and Front Porch catered our meals. The food was delicious, and the owners Gina and Francis were lovely! They were helpful with our dietary restrictions, made crowd pleasing breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and created a fabulous ambience. Seafood is their specialty. Very special, local experience from Front Porch!
