Visiting family in the area and this is a weekly stop for them. They visit every Friday for Cuban sandwiches and homemade soup. We were glad to join them. We hadn't been here for several years and it was nice to see the food and service were still great. The Spanish bean soup was very tasty and the Cubans had... More

Had the Cuban with banana cream pie, and of course coffee. Portions were good, taste was excellent. Will stop again if just for pie and coffee.

While staying a Rainbow Springs State Park, we wandered into town to check out the antiques and have lunch. The Front Porch is great. We both had the fish basket, mine with Cole slaw and fried okra, the wife's with pickled beets and greens. The greens will definitely make you a fan, never had better in a restaurant. Fish was...

very casual indoor/outdoor dining, great lunch & dinner menu but leave room for desert! The homemade pies here are worth the trip alone (and you can take some with you). Standard burgers, blt's, shrimp dishes, all made to order and an incredible array of vegetables, chicken fried steak, fresh coleslaw and very glad to have kids with children's menu, highchairs,...

We have been stopping by the Front Porch for 3 or 4 years now. Their food never disappoints. My husband loves their Cuban sandwiches and we both love their Spanish bean soup. They have great side dishes to go with their fried chicken or their pot roast. Think home cooking - that's the Front Porch.

Unfortunately The Front Porch did not meet our expectations. After reading several reviews I ordered my pie with the meal because I read they sometimes run out. We ordered a grilled cheese and a vegetable plate. It took an extremely long time for our food to come. The $6.00 grilled cheese was tiny and not very good. The vegetables were... More

My elderly parents were visiting and mummy had been dreaming about the vegetable soup here since her last visit- three years ago!! It did not disappoint . Neither did the fried chicken or daddy and his liver and onions! Would have given it a five but the second time we went it was half hour waiting for the food. Unusual... More

We live "down the road apiece" and frequent the Front Porch once or twice a week, sometimes at night, just for Pie. We Love this place!!!! The servers are the best and the home cooked food is awesome. I saved the Pie for last. This is the best I have ever had, fresh made on premises and huge portions. as... More
