Both my DH & I just LOVE their delectable shrimp = so, soooooooooooo delicious! Their coating is fabulous, and NOT greasy at all for fried preparation. This was our second good experience here, we're looking forward to coming back - in fact I've just set a lunch with a friend for this week! Service is very solicitous. Quaint 'beachy' décor... More

I love eating outside on the front porch. It's always such a nice, shady, breezy area to sit. Their sandwiches are delicious! Everything is super yummy!

My husband always tries something new and loves it. I can't get away from the seered tuna dinner. It is just too good to pass up. It can get rather expensive with all the extra's, but a bowl of crab bisque (which is FABULOUS) is another must. The appetizers are all wonderful. It is a place to go to entertain... More

Had lunch there. It is somewhat a small restaurant and I was surprised when my sandwich came with a bowl of tomato soup (is it their specialty or soup of the day, I don't know). I had the egg salad and it was good. A friend had a "bowl" of soup (in a load of bread, with center torn out)... More

They ha ve some very good dishes here! I'm not an oyster person, but people rave about them here. It's kind of funky inside, but everyone is service-oriented, and the owner Lee is almost always present. The hosteses are almost all college students from the University of North GA, in town, and they seem consistently sweet and willing to help.... More

We love eating here on a weekend for lunch! The upstairs porch is a great place to eat lunch overlooking the activity on the square. The BBQ sandwiches and hotdogs are great and the potato salad is to die for. Great for a casual lunch outside!

We did not have the displeasure of actually sitting down to eat at the establishment. After waiting over an hour for an estimated 25 minute wait, we traveled up the narrow corridor to the splash guard counter top where orders are to be placed. Our group was examining the menu prior to order when presented with the fact that they... More

The food at the front porch is good and reasonably priced. The service is good. The porch is upstairs and looks over the square. It is shaded and doesn't have people and pets walking right by your table. We like a The Front Porch.

A quaint, upstairs little restaurant with several tables on the balcony directly overlooking the square. A comfortable and fun vantage point over some great lunch choices. The menu is limited, but the standard fare of sandwiches and sides are perfect for a quick, but relaxing luncheon. If you prefer view over ambiance, this is the place to eat during your... More
