This restaurant is fantastic with a menu that is difficult to choose from because everything is so delicious. We, however, love the lobster risotto even its MAC n Cheese is wow. They offer a very good wine selection and their Martini's are awesome. You feel quite welcomed once you enter this place whether you eat downstairs at the bar, in... More

Such a great fun place to enjoy great appetizers and cocktails while watching folks sing their hearts out at a beautiful piano bar.

Our daughter (17) really wanted to eat here on previous visits mostly because of the beautiful tree, so we stopped on a very quiet, off-season Sunday. Our waiter was very friendly. We started with the nachos which were great. I ordered the shrimp and chorizo flatbread. It was wonderful. Unfortunately, my husband and daugher both ordered cheeseburgers cooked medium and... More

We ate at the Front Porch on our most recent visit to Ogunquit - this was the first time we've eaten there.. we normally just have some drinks upstairs in the Piano Bar. We were both very impressed with our meals but the service made our experience! Our server was excellent, very friendly & funny! We will definitely be back!

This place is still called the Front Porch but gone are the porch chairs, lattice work and even the mural which defined the place for the last 40 years is virtually gone...relegated to a lowly place in the stairwell only to be seen when one is exiting the premises. Apparently there are new owners. Now it looks like every other... More

This establishment lives up to it's reputation for excellent service, food/drink and atmosphere in any season. This New Year's with our family did not disappoint.

We went with a group of 7, with no pre-planning. Called them about 5:30 pm, and while they were very full, they accommodated our group (as long as we came early). Drinks and food were all very good, staff was wonderful. Sat close to the piano bar and listened to some great music - and lots of people singing. Never... More

My husband & I stopped by the Front Porch for dessert & drinks tonight. We had the creme brûlée which was delicious, and drinks were nice and strong, and reasonably priced. Great lighting and music as well. Service was a bit slow but we were in no rush anyway, and our waiter was very nice and friendly. I would definitely... More

Food was good, but a little pricey, but the Piano Bar was fun, ambitious and made the night very enjoyable. Go and have a great time!

We were in Ogunquit in late Oct. 2013 and went to the Front Porch Restaurant for dinner our first night in town. The restaurant was highly recommended by our innkeeper. We were surprised at how beautifully decorated the restaurant was. The entire place sparkled with white twinkle lights, they were everywhere. They had the most beautiful and unique indoor "tree...
