Great Food

This place is really busy so get there early or if you have to wait have a drink at the bar.... I have been many times and the food is always great. Although there is no "front porch" there is a piano bar upstairs and in the summer the windows are open and you can hear the singing !

1 star for the food, 4 stars for the entertainment....average is 2 stars, although I am hesitant to rate it this high bc of our awful experience with our meal. We had a reservation, and despite my husband requesting for us to be seated in the side room, the hostess attempted to seat us at a high top table in... More

After reading your review... Ive decided that you must get out of your Cubical more! First we do not offer reservations, second our Piano Bar is full from opening to closing (must be doing something right).. Perhaps you liked it so much but couldn't get closer to the music because you are rude! Or perhaps the FREE ENTERTAINMENT was the... More

I've eaten here several times over the years and have always had a good meal. The kitchen is open late and the service 'was attentive. And there's always the piano bar upstairs.

We are were in Ogunquit for a girls night of spa and relaxation and chose the Front Porch for an early dinner and quiet entertainment where we could still chit-chat and hear ourselves, or like-wise join in the singing if we wanted to.

This is an outstanding restaurant right on the corner. Easy walking distances from any hotel on Beach or Shore Road. The menu is limited but outstanding. The fish is fresh. The servers are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the encrusted fish which was outstanding. It is a little pricey but well worth it. While we have seen children there, I... More

No matter how many other places I try on the coast of Maine or in the Portsmouth NH area, I always return to the Front Porch. The food is outstanding, the upstairs piano bar is great fun, the bartenders - Matthew downstairs and Brian upstairs are top notch. This is always the place that I bring out of town guests... More

Great drinks upstairs in the Piano bar and that is just the tip! Singing show tunes around the bar and with friends old and new is an amazing feeling in this small town in Maine.

World class cuisine, definitely a surprise "in the middle of nowhere" just as the best restaurants in the world are! Go for the mussels in blue cheese and wine
