Busy place but always fun.

The piano bar upstairs is the place to be, but you have to go early if you want to eat dinner at a table. Seating is first come first serve, so we lucked out and got a place at the bar. We enjoyed our dinner and sang along with the piano player. Lots of fun.

We were in Ogunquit for 3 nights in August 2014, our first trip back to Maine in almost 20 years. We had been to the Front Porch 20 years ago and were thrilled to find that not only was it still there, but it was going strong! It was clear there had been some renovations since our first trip and... More

What a fun spot. There is a piano bar upstairs that gets everyone into a sing along mood. You can also get a full menu upstairs but it tends to get a little loud due to the singing. However, whether you are upstairs or dining downstairs, the food is wonderful.

The food is great but the best part is the piano bar. Where else could you go on a summer night and get involved in a Sound of Music singalong? This place is the most fun place on earth. When I am walking past on a summer night, it does my heart good to hear the crowd inside singing along... More

If you want to go to a great restaurant and experience excellent appetizer choices, great choices of wines and truly remarkable entrees, come here. We were upstairs and thoroughly enjoyed the piano bar where everyone was singing along with the tunes. Maybe because it was December and the town was decorated to the max, but sitting at our table by... More

Had dinner with my wife there tonight. She has hanger steak on a spinach salad and I had the lamb chops. The food was fantastic and waitress has great. I ordered a Martinez up with olives. It was very generous in size and very good.

I was visiting during a recent work trip with a colleague and found the piano bar upstairs. The staff was friendly and inviting and very helpful trying to shuffle tables around to make room for us when they were jam packed. The locals were friendly, music was great fun and the good very good. Great night!
