While walking along the main street in Rehoboth, we noticed a cool alley-like walkway that was unique and decorated with pretty planters and benches. We noticed that at the end of the walkway there was a door leading to a restaurant. We decided to check it out. There was a menu posted at the end of the walkway and we... More

One of my Rehoboth favorites. Generally, the food is local and creative. The chef is creative and understands how to layer flavors so the dish sings. My smoked salmon appetizer was wonderful and my friends soft crab was excellent. Our entrees were fresh, well sourced and well prepared. My fish was cooked perfectly. My friends duck seriously could have converted... More

We went there at 6:30 pm, five of us, for drinks and appetizers.The restaurant was less than half full. The outside patio was empty and so was the alley.They were hesitant to seat us as they said they were seating for dinner only, and then seated us in the bar section. The waitress, a very tall blond, was not the... More

The Back Porch Cafe is a great place to go for lunch or dinner. Dinner was pricey for dinner but I would do it again. I had a great entree and included appetizer, desert and wine. I was very impressed with the service I received from my waiter. I would definitely return to the Back Porch Cafe in the future.

Overall a good experience on my first visit to the Back Porch Cafe. There were a couple minor hiccups, well worth mentioning, if nothing else but to make management aware; such as the wobbly table, which would make you fear putting your drink in your lap when cutting your tenderloin with the dull knife provided. Our drinking glasses had some... More

Delicious! From the blueberry scones to the blueberry bread pudding and everything else in between. Enjoying excellent, farm-fresh food in such a casual setting was a true at-the-beach pleasure. Tried the recommended white wine that went perfectly with the tomato and goat cheese tart that was melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

Popular place for Sunday brunch. Our party of four squeezed into a very small table in the dining room. The menu is limited but covers the bases. Cucumber and dill soup was delicious. Eggs Benedict, scrambled eggs with Artisanal cheese and Gruyere omelette were very much enjoyed by our party. Our server was pleasant and efficient. Superb wine list. It... More

We dine at The Back Porch every summer on several occasions while vacationing in Rehoboth Beach, and this place just always thrills us with the cuisine. The service is top rate, and the atmosphere is very charming and social. The wonderful water-color art work on the walls each year is a treat to see whats new from a local artist.... More

We stumbled onto this place last time was were in Rehoboth and desperate to get out of the sun. Down an alley that's easy to miss we were delighted to have an incredible experience sharing small plates around our large group in a cool, green space with excellent staff and cocktails. This trip we were hesitant to tempt fate by... More
