Seating options from couches... More

We went to The Front Porch for dinner (supper) on August 13 2014 and had no expectations. We just wanted to have a good meal, and this is exactly what we got and even more. Everything without exception was good, including the service provided by a gentleman named Ken O. and the environment was very nice (even if some of... More

Whether downstairs, dining on their delicious food, (my fave? Mac and Cheese w/ proscuitto to die for, moist Chicken Under... More

We went back to the Front Porch for a quick drink and light appetizers and decided to stay for dinner. Very happy we did. We have enjoy fried calamari, but the way they prepare this appetizer was quite good. After an hour we scanned the menu and decided to stay for some entrees. The lobster risotto is exquisite and beautifully... More

We have only been here for cocktails and appetizers, and of course to enjoy the piano bar : ) but I have heard great things about their dinners too!
