A bar trying to be a restaurant? Or a restaurant trying to be a bar?

Always our first choice in Ogunquit. It has become, however, less of a piano bar and more of a restaurant, which is a disappointment. But there's nothing else like it anywhere I've traveled.

Having made a walk in reservation (a telephone call an hour before arriving, made at the restaurant's request), we were seated promptly and graciously in a lovely dining room. One member of our party had raved about the lobster risotto. I thought it was delicious! Creamy risotto and practically a whole lobster on top. Also excellent was an appetizer of... More

We ate here on a Friday night in late August and called ahead which saved us some time( 30 min wait) . The restaurant and bar downstairs were busy. When seated we started off with the crab and corn dip with tortillas. This dip was decent and tasted fresh but it was sort of on the bland side of taste.... More

After reading reviews on TA, we decided on this spot. We were lucky to find a place to park...the sign over our parking spot said 30 minute parking only and we were parked there much longer than 30 minutes. But there was no ticket and no problem when we came back to our car. The restaurant was warm and inviting.... More

Went to The Front Porch after our Inn Keeper told us we have to go for the lobster risotto. We sat upstairs where it was fairly busy, but we loved the piano music. My partner and I both got the risotto and it was horrible! I've never had such chewy rubbery lobster. We asked our server (Victor or Vinnie) if... More

Sorry you had a bad experience! WE DO not have frozen lobster meat it is delivered every day fresh. I would be happy to treat you again. Perhaps it was over cooked by our Culinary Team Either way I stand by my product and want you to be happy. Please come have dinner on me and I will assure you... More

This is our second time visiting the Front Porch for dinner. The atmosphere and decor was very inviting. The food was fantastic and our waitress Maria Gerace was the most friendly, funny and informative waitress we have had. Being new to the area she was so helpful with places to go and things to do in the area. We really... More
