The food was ok but not great. The prices were way out of line. We called ahead for a large group. We were told we could sit together but when we got there. They split us up in totally different places in the restaurant. Like opposite ends of the building. I do not recommend this place and i will never go back.

This is our second time coming to the Back Porch and for us it is a fan favorite! The service is always top notch and the food is exceptional! I bragged on the Back Porch to our friends the whole time coming down here and thankfully they did not disappoint. We ended up at the same table we had on our last trip down here which has a wonderful view of the ocean! The calamari is great as an appetizer; and so are the fried pickles! Everything is just great! We always hit up the gift shop on our way out.

We stayed within walking distance so we had several meals here. We ate at the bar each time after our first visit due to the great bar staff. Food was fantastic and quick. Good beer selection as well.

Food was really good and lots of it. Seafood nachos were really good. Crab stuffed shrimp - mmmmmm. Back porch oysters were very good appetizer. Great server. Nice T-shirt’s.

I believe our server was a bit overloaded. I got my salad about three minutes before my entree. The food was good and the portions were large, but you definitely pay for it. For just my husband and I, with one drink apiece, our check was $86 before tip. We ordered entrees in the low $30s but that's where most dinner dishes were.
