This restaurant was recommended by the guide on our Duck Tour. It happens to be on Lake Hamilton. The food was amazing and service was excellent. Great place for seafood or steaks. Would definitely visit again.

Arrived at our destination of Sunbay Resort after a long day's drive so decided to eat at the Back Porch Grill instead of doing more driving. Food was good, but pricey.

Went to Backporch grill with a friend and his wife. They had steak and I had the stuffed red snapper. They loved their steaks and enjoyed watching them being cooked in the open steak pit. My fish was awesome. Also had the sweet potato casserole and scraped the bowl. Waitress was busy but still kept us supplied. Atmosphere is good.... More

$29 for each steak (2), neither grilled as requested. No bread. Margarine not butter for over baked potato. Dreary, out of date furnishings, ragged blinds and when you walk into building chlorine fumes choke you from pool next to entry but those fumes are not in restaurant. Restaurant does get smoky from the indoor grill. Server was nice and polite.... More

My husband and I visited here for dinner on a Saturday evening. We arrived early and that was a good thing because this place filled up FAST. We were seated out on the "porch" with water views all around. We both ordered a ribeye steak with a cajun sauce on top and it was to die for. Steak was tender... More

Had a nice dinner with friends. We stopped at the bar first for drinks and then to dinner once our friends arrived. Would definitely go back.

We wanted a nice dinner for the last day of vacation before going home. Valet service pulling up made an excellent first impression. Seated right away by a smiling hostess which was nice. Waiter was friendly but slow. Food was just ok but not for the expensive price tags. Mother in laws steak was cooked wrong. We won't be back... More
