Chances are that if you go out of your way to get to the Front Porch for meal you probably aren't in a rush. We stopped by Front Porch on the way to Governors Harbor from North Eleuthera. The bartender/chef/waiter was extremely friendly and welcoming. As it's a two-person staff (we went before high season), the food took a while... More

We almost didn't stop here, we had heard it was expensive. There are some expensive entrees on the menu, but there are also some very reasonably options. The setting is like going to someone's house, there only 4 or 5 tables. For this reason, I would highly suggest making reservations. We had the fried chicken and blackened fish. Everything was...

The Front Porch is a very good restaurant, a little bit different from the other ones in Eleuthera. You immediately feel at ease, and as if you were at a friend's or family's house. The people there (cook and waitress) are so smiling, welcoming, helpful and in one word (or two!): simply nice! The menu is not long (about 6-7... More

My parents told us we had to stop and eat at the Front Porch no matter what when we went to Eleuthera for our honeymoon and they were right!! The Front Porch is a "must stop" while vacationing in Eleuthera!! The meal was our favorite of the trip and we cannot rave enough about the food and the outstanding service.... More

We had read some great reviews so we decided to stop in for dinner tonight. The five spiced Grouper, amazing, melts in your mouth with perfectly cooked vegetables. The curry shrimp, one of the best curry dishes we have ever had, made from scratch. You can tell the owners love what they do and it shows in their food. We... More

My husband and I stopped at The Front Porch purely by chance on our travels to the northern part of Eleuthera. What a wonderful experience! The place is extremely charming and only upstaged by the owners and their true love of preparing wonderful dishes and genuine hospitality. Gina was such a delight and provided great island history and information. The... More

Visiting The Front Porch on our last night on Eleuthera was such a special and memorable night! Magical really. We got married and were honeymooning on the island and that night we felt like we had our own private chefs catering to our every desire! What a special night. We caught the beautiful sunset on the porch and then had... More

The food was good, but spoiled by the hefty price. Each of our burgers were 24.00. Menu always changes and very minimal selection.

We went to Front Porch twice during our stay in Eleuthera and I can honestly say that those were by far the two best meals we had this entire trip. Everything starts with the warm and friendly service provided by owners Francis & Gina. Within minutes of arriving, Francis & Gina make you feel like you're a long lost friend... More
