Have tried this restaurant many times. The fried chicken is great and so is the pie! The staff is ok! Things are just not as good as they once were. But I still eat there for the "home cooked type" meals!

We stopped in for lunch and had the fish sandwiches. We had okra, cucumber salad, sweet potata fries and spanish bean soup for the side options. The food was very good, good value, very small sides,and delicious spanish soup, I should have got a bowl of that soup!! The pies were the real treat here!!! The pecan pie was to... More

Heard good things & thought we'd try it. Not the best experience. Our waitress was nice but totally unorganized. Had to sit out in the smokers room, yuk!!! Food was good but not great. Don't think we are going back.

Had dinner here with my honey, and it seemed too good to be true. Terrific fried chicken just like Mama used to make. The kind I don't have time or energy for these days. Service, food and location all wonderful. Friends told me this is their favorite breakfast place, but I think the dinner is what brings me back.

Having heard of this treasure from word of mouth, my wife and me gave it a chance several years ago and continue to this day to enjoy its quaint charm. The atmosphere is casual, you are greeted by the servers to sit where you pleas either on the porch, smoking patio or inside. The walls are muraled and decor is... More

The Front Porch is famous for breakfast. But they have lunch and dinner too. WE went for late breakfast but got there too late. Lucky us as I tried the real Cuban sandwich and my friend had toasted ham and cheese. Both of us got just the sandwich and coffee which was quite good. Sandwiches were very good and left... More

The Front Porch is always packed- with locals and visitors alike. Family friendly, good food and great art on the walls. This is a family business and they even close for a couple of weeks once a year to take their vacation! Breakfast: last time I ordered the breakfast sandwich (BELT- bacon, eggs, lettuce & tomato) every tried some and... More

This restaurant is where you go when you want a southern home-style meal with more food than you should be able to eat in one sitting. It's family-owned and operated and is very friendly. Rustic and hand-painted murals on the walls. An extensive changing selection of vegetables to choose from. This is where "the locals" and "those who know" go... More

It is so charming to eat in this local establishment with many choices on the menu not offered in other places. The always changing "sides board" lists many veggies and other available sides. We had breakfast this morning. My husband had the pancakes with smoked sausage. I had French toast with sausage patties. Their servings are always generous. A constant... More
