For New Year's dinner for anniversaries for my wife's birthday we try to schedule a meal at The Back Porch Restaurant. You can't get better food South of Pittsburgh this must be a five star restaurant.

The Back Porch is eclectic!...a step back in time, if you will. It's a 3 story historic mansion with lovely dining on all 3 floors. Sit by a fireplace and enjoy excellent service and superb food. The decor and lighting will capture you. You will not be disappointed! Reservations needed.

What a romantic place to celebrate a special occasion. With the fireplaces blazing and the winter sangria smelling so good, the Back Porch was the perfect place to celebrate our 41rst wedding anniversary. The service was attentive and perceptive yet not annoying but the food was marvelous. The homemade Sangria spiced with cinnamon, cloves and fresh cranberry juice was refreshing.... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. It never disappoints. They have a couple different items on the menu. We started with the goat cheese fritters & they were so good. My husband had the cheese soup & he said it was very good. I had the filet oscar & hubby had the veal oscar, both cooked perfectly. Our server... More
