The Front Porch Restaurant is nothing to look at from the exterior. Had heard good things though so decided to try it. Decor inside needs some updating. Ordered the pot roast dinner. Portions are generous and very tasty. The prices are very fair. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return to when in Dunnellon.

Fried chicken was the juiciest I have ever had! That was "the day's special". Large portions. The inside decor is very interesting. The painting that makes the whole place look old wood is very cool. If you like pie with mile high meringue, this is the place for you!

Took my family of 6 and had breakfast here. Prices were average to Denny's or village inn. I ordered a breakfast sandwich with sausage. I should have gotten the ham instead. My mothers breakfast ham sandwich was good. The chocolate pie was good and I recommend you try it. The coconut one was bla. The merange was a little running... More

My dear aunt Shirley lives in Dunnellon and this is her favorite restaurant. We went to dinner one evening and had a lovely meal on the porch! Aunt Shirley said the crabcakes were very good so I ordered those, since I have a hard time passing up a good crabcake. They served 2 good sized cakes with fries and coleslaw.... More

We love the Front Porch. We came for the amazing pie, but their home cooking style meals were great too. Definitely a must do in the Dunnellon area.

Always return when we're in the area. We enjoy everything about this place - wait staff has always been very friendly and courteous, food arrives timely and is better then average, you need to save your appetite for the variety of pies. So go, enjoy the atmosphere and food. Can't understand how anyone can have a bad experience here.

We had breakfast there and it was great! Hot coffee, fast service. Sat on the enclosed porch area. Big portions - pancakes were huge and the chicken fried steak was as big as a pancake! Prices were reasonable and we took some of it to go as we were unable to finish it there. I'd go back anytime to try... More
