Quaint restaurant off the beaten path north of I-10 in Pass Christian.. Great food only open for dinner. My husband and I were both pleased with our meal. Served timely and hot.

Our second time here. Stopped for a late dinner after a charity event. Our server was great! I don't remember her name but our receipt said Server #1. I'll go along with that. She reminded me of my cousins in north Mississippi, happy to see us and waiting on us hand and foot. She recommended a special pink drink. Loved... More

We have always heard of the Porch and never stopped. From the pleasant welcome we felt at home. Start with the crawfish egg roll it's a unique flavor. We had crabmeat stuffed redfish, pasta angell both full of the best tastes the Gulf Coast has to offer. Didn't have room for dessert...... I'm sure we missed out on something great.... More

We heard about the place some time ago, then saw it one evening on a ride. Fried green tomatoes and seafood platter were great! Excellent sweet tea.

We've had the shrimp poboy and a hamburger poboy. Casual setting, and friendly staff. A nice variety of foods at a reasonable price. A must see and eat restaurant.

Casual comfortable restaurant in a country setting. Friendly and efficient service. All the dishes were excellent. The portions were ample enough to share.

I have tried many dishes at The Front Porch over the years and have not been disappointed once. The Shrimp Po-Boy is to die for, the roast beef Po-boy is excellent when they are serving it, the Eggplant Napolean is amazing. The fried pickles are a must have! If you are looking for something lighter, try the grilled shrimp salad!

I've eaten almost everything on the menu and my favorite is the eggplant Napoleon. The burgers and steaks are awesome. All the seafood is fresh. If you're in the area definitely try front porch cafe.

The atmosphere is great with the cafe being in an old house. The chicken fried chicken and real mashed potatos and gravy was great with large portion for lunch. I love fried green tomatoes and these with the meal were perfect, thin cut with not a lot of breading and not greasy. Service was awesome. Worth the drive.

We stopped for lunch on a rainy weekday. The food was well-prepared and the service was friendly and efficient. It was a relaxing stop on a long drive. Worth the trip!
