Stopped here while on vacation. Love going upstairs to the piano bar for drinks and broadway musical sing-a-longs.

Popular spot to enjoy the piano bar, drinks and appetizers. Window seats are great for people watching. The food was overpriced and very salty. Best to order just drinks and appetizers.

We love the Front Porch and its a must stop every time we visit Ogunquit. It definitely gets crowded and noisy, but it's a fun place for drinks and food. The BBQ Flatbread and Mussels are fabulous and filling nibble food. Piano lounge is upstairs so go there unless you want quiet conversation.

My personal favorite Comfort food is their Mac & cheese with a chopped salad! Whether it's a special occasion or just a night out with friends, The front porch has it all! Great food, great atmosphere, and a great staff, ❤️👍🏻❤️

I had never stopped in before and have been upstairs and had bar food a long time ago. A very well appointed restaurant with excellent service. I had a Delmonico steak with mashed potato and creme brûlée broccoli, very good. My husband had lamb chops, which were excellent . Busy place so go early for dinner.

The service was very slow and the food was nothing to talk about. I wouldn't waist time going to the Front Porch.

We did not eat at the restaurant, but did visit the Piano Bar on the second floor. This venue was recommended by the Innkeeper where we were staying. I believe on both Friday and Saturday a piano player starts around 4:30 and plays to approximately 8:30, followed by another artist who plays until around midnight. It is a fun place,... More

I had the ceasar salad with salmon. The salad was all yellow/white ends with no green! The salmon was 1" x 4" and burned to a crisp. I recommend a short drive to Weathervane in Kittery where the portion sizes are huge and quality much higher. This meal was very disappointing.
