Best lobster dinner EVER

On our last trip to the island we decided to give The Front Porch a try. It was one of the best meals I can remember having in years. The lobster was delicious and HUGE. We enjoyed our meal so much we returned a few nights later for dinner. I highly recomend this place!

Every time I have stopped by this place we have always had a bad experience with the gentleman that works there. Looks like a cute inviting spot to have a drink over looking the bay, too bad we've never had the chance to.

Fresh caught seafood cooked well. (Not overcooked) Best tasting crab claws. Delicious sandwiches. Amazing fresh cocktails. The restaurant owner was friendly and puts a lot of love into his services & food making, all key ingredients to a fantastic experience. Highly recommended! And I'm a fussy one. Note - TripAdvisor has the wrong map/location & address. You want to drive... More

Despite a rocky start (tripadvisor has the location of this place wrong on the map and in directions), we went for dinner and both enjoyed it very much. The owner is very welcoming and friendly, and the location - up on a hillside above the bay - is a nice spot. We were lucky to be able to watch the... More

We ended up at the Front Porch since our original choice for dinner was closed. We had Goombay Punches, Wings for appetizers and mains of steak and grouper. The wings were the best! We enjoyed our server immensely, she was very genuine and had a wonderful smile. The atmosphere was very nice, and we had the whole place to ourselves.... More

Walked in, looked at the price, then walked right back out. Way to expensive for our budget. I am sure it is good if you have the money, but we didn't want to spend our money there.

Two of the adults were having birthdays...The Manager Gina was very accommodating with preparing a menu especially for the small children. Their menu was varied, presentation was awesome and food tasty..The ambience could not have been better; overlooking the... More
