The Front Porch is one of those restaurants that flies under the radar. You could easily drive right by its unassuming exterior, not knowing you just passed up a fantastic meal. Whenever we visit Crystal River, we make it a point to take the 30-minute detour to the Front Porch. It's worth the drive. Their fried chicken and pot roast... More

We love to sit in the screened area for our meals. As a non-smoker, sometimes that is great, sometimes not. Most times, I can find a table upwind of the smoke and my hubby can sit downwind. Food is good, pies are excellent. But, like Sunday dinner, you have to save room for dessert because the portions are large.

Warm and friendly place with meals like we used to cook at home and then some. Everyone has a favorite, mine being the Spanish bean soup with a Cuban sandwich. The first order I place, however, is the pie I want for dessert. You can't take a chance that it will be gone! Usually I'm too full to eat it... More

I have eaten there several times and the main meal is OK, but the deserts are all home made and are very good. But the real highlight is the home made blue cheese dressing. Some times they run out and have to whip up another batch. The chicken salad with the blue cheese is so good.

When there for breakfast and the food was great. The waitress was very friendly and patient. I was with a large and picky group of eaters. Great decor inside, makes you feel like you are in a log cabin. Also pet they are pet friendly which is a plus.

There was a short wait when we arrived but the staff was attentive. We were seated in about 10 minutes and the restaurant was completely packed. The menu is full of great comfort food...the meatloaf dinner was delicious and the open faced roast beef sandwich was huge and full of flavor. They also have a great selection of homemade pies...

We love this place for its pie. About 8-10 varieties are available most days. We called ahead and reserved our slices with the idea of having dinner first and then making sure the pie we wanted was available. We arrived about 7PM, thinking we had missed the dinner crowd. The lot was full and so was the restaurant. The hostess... More
