Great food. Great service. Charming setting.

I've eaten here too many times to count over the last 15 years. The food is really great. Not cheap, but I think really worth the price. Much better than many of the other "fine" restaurants in town.

This place came highly recommended so maybe I expected too much. The atmosphere was nice and the food presentation was pleasing. However, the food tasted bland, flies were a problem and the prices were just too high. There are too many good and less expensive dining establishments in RB for me to ever try this place again.

We came here for a nightcap of desserts and coffee. The restaurant itself is amazing! The "porch" area is so nice and wonderful. They have art on the walls as part of a show, which is awesome! We loved talking about the art near our table, which was, uh, interesting? We ordered all the desserts - fantastic. So rich and... More

There were a few highlights to our dinner, although fewer than one would expect at the prices ($16-18 for appetizers, $35-40 for most main dishes) and reputation of this establishment. Among our appetizers, we loved the Peppercured Tuna Loin, a wonderful, fresh cut of the fish that was nicely accompanied by blinis and sour cream. We liked the Crispy Sweetbread... More

We have been there for dinner which was excellent and this time Sunday Brunch did not disappoint. The turkey burger is so imaginatively done. The omelets are great as was the Bloody Mary. It is hard to find a much cooler atmosphere to eat in and the service seems consistently good in this well run establishment.

This is not a place you go to save $$. However, if you are a foodie stop here. It's a little hidden so you may need to use your GPS. Easy walking distance from the boardwalk.

This is the oldest & the Best restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. Its overall design is very fun and eclectic. As a fellow business owner in Rehoboth Beach, it is extremely important that we visit every restaurant and shop so that we can guide our guest properly. This is the restaurant that is always at the top of our list.

The Back Porch did an amazing job of accommodating our large group of 12 people in an intimate setting. When one of the children, a vegetarian with nut allergies, could not find a menu item, the manager went out of his way to accommodate her needs. Above and beyond. They are to be commended. The rest of our meals were... More

We did the fixed price menu and it was terrific. We were on the back porch and enjoyed the ambience. We are locals and enjoy this place.
