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!

We had a girls night out at the Front Porch this past Friday night and it was fantastic. We arrived early to get a seat upstairs at the piano bar before the music started and it filled up, which it did around 7pm. The music started promptly at 6pm and the first performer played non-stop until 9pm. He was very... More

It has been a few years since we last visited Ogunquit and the Front Porch, but after our experience we will be back often. We spent an overnight in Ogunquit for my partners 40 Birthday. We were going to the Playhouse and I wanted it to be a special, stress free night. Knowing that the restaurant does not take reservation,... More

We stopped there for dinner, food was ok, drinks were "light" the entertainment was interesting-piano with lots of locals singing show tunes. Very loud, so if you want to talk to those who traveled with you...not the place you want conversation is hard! Staff was friendly and fine. One in our party had a bowl of soup...very shallow bowl for... More

The food here is a solid bet for the town. Prices are reasonable enough. About $60-80 per couple full meal app-dessert. The Salmon is usually excellent. The Sweet potato frys(though outsourced) are very good.The Chicken is excellent as well.

I've been to this restaurant many times and always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Thurs nights off season offers a special menu at a special price. Price was good, menu was OK, but not very inspired. The worst part of the evening was the table at the other end of the room. 6 to 8 people having a good... More

I've visited the Front Porch for a number years. The food is usually very good, the drinks are excellent, and the entertainment upstairs is the best. Michelle Currie and Jason Weber are great entertainers, and the staff is always very friendly.

I didn't eat there, but we went for a couple of drinks upstairs. They have a sing along piano bar, and the atmosphere is great... We were earing people singing from the street, and decided to get inside, and see what all the fun was about. It is really a lot of fun. A lot of atmosphere, and the people... More
