I have been dining in Rehoboth for 20 plus years and often thought about eating at the Back Porch. I am so glad I finally did. I will go back, soon! The restaurant has terrific ambience. It is cozy. Service was strong. The food, from appetizer to entree to dessert, did not disappoint. The restaurant's 40 year tradition lives on.

My family of 5 visited this restaurant for lunch. It was so yummy. They don't have a kids menu. Just in case that is something that is needed for you. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. I definitely suggest this place.

You don't get to be one of the best and stay in business for over 36 years by accident. This place has it's own cute personality (always try to get a table on the literal back porch), and operates like a well oiled machine. The food is just brilliant in all senses of the word, from first courses all the... More

Enjoyed dinner with another couple this past weekend. The menu offers plenty of variation, with each dish having one ingredient you just aren't quite sure what it is...but a walk on the wild side proves it was worth the adventure. The menu tends to be a bit pricey for what it is, but perhaps the premium is for the atmosphere,... More

The Back Porch has a fun atmosphere. It is a nice small restaurant with good food and great ambiance-if you sit outside. A meal at the Back Porch is a great experience.

Tried this little boutique restaurant and found the food to be excellent with good prices. Not one of those places that try to overload you with so-so food, but gives you a sane sized portion of delectable, fresh and interesting food. Will definitely go there again! The location is sort of hidden and the furnishings are homey with great art... More

We’ve been coming to Rehoboth for years, and Back Porch Café is still the most reliably delicious fine dining establishment in town. Over the years, we’ve had one incident of poor service, and a couple of courses that weren’t the best. But compared to so many other places, where the disappointments are inevitable after one good meal, this is the... More

We had a group of seven for dinner. We were promptly seated and quickly served. The restaurant was busy and full, yet there was a calm and efficiency that was appreciated. The loin of tuna was very unique and delicious for an appetizer. The spiced salmon was delicious and cooked perfectly. Four of my friends had the tenderloin - prepared... More
