Very good down home meal with friends. The Back Porch does a great job on all of their meats. The sandwiches are excellent. Burgers are huge and tasty. Good beer selection. We had young kids in our group and were welcomed.

Love the ribeye, ribs, Prime rib, and the German sausages. We eat here often and the service is usually pretty good but at times has been slow but understandably only when it is very busy. Parking is an issue and because the food is so good it is usually pretty full. The choice of beer is limited but what they... More

We've been going to Backporch for over 10 years and tonight was our last!!! I realize the holidays are stressful and busy but from the moment we stepped into one of our favorites, we were treated as an inconvenience. He was extremely rude and short with us when we asked if we could grab any table available. Then, to add... More

Casual, friendly with a touch of western, room in back has the bar as well. The waitresses are great, really helpful and eager to please with a generous hand with the bar drinks. The servings are sizable, we always take home extra. Barbecue is a hot ticket, the salads are really delicious. The menu is heavy on the meat, with... More

The brisket and the ahi tuna tacos were the best we've ever had. They also make a brisket jalapeno melt that is out of this world. The atmosphere is friendly with great service. Not to be missed if you are in this town. Kevin, the Russell Crow double just might be your bartender too!

We were hoping to find a lunch place to eat outdoors with our dogs. Unfortunately found very few places in Southern Oregon where we could dine al fresco with our pooches. We stopped at the Back Porch because we thought they, well, had a back porch. They may have at one time. But the entire restaurant is enclosed and the... More
