BP was sliding and its obvious that competition on the island has brought them back. Way to go guys, revised menu, continued excellance, very nicely done entrees and wine list, deserts and the house salad.

The setting is average, but the food was very good. We had heard the fresh fish was excellent. The chef accommodated our special request. However, this was not the best fish we ate while in Ocracoke.

I have visited this restaurant each time I go to Ocracoke, NC and each time it gets better and better. The seafood is cooked perfectly, steaks are cooked according to your preference and the staff tries so hard to make sure everyone is satisfied with their meal.One person in our party is on a specific diet and the waitress took...

We always enjoy Back Porch. The service is great and food well prepared. A very pleasant experience every time. We just wish they could support being open all year!

Second time here. Deja vu! Same table and waiter , Tristan! He was very pleasant and helpful. My husband had the seafood platter. Great portion and very tasty. I opted for the special..sheepshead! Done with capers and tomatoes, it was delicious! Loved the rice and fresh veggies. Rice is bland but goes well with flavors of other foods. The bread... More

Our party was disappointed to find that the only local fish on the menu was bluefish. Although many options were offered in its preparation, it is still bluefish. This is the least desirable fish to eat from the area.

Stopped by for dinner on Friday evening. Town was still crowded due to fair weather this Fall, so I opted for an early dinner to avoid the congestion and noise. Ordered local bluefish broiled and a Caesar salad. Both were properly prepared and served with care. Fish was local, fresh and moist. The fish was clearly selected and prepared by... More

My husband and I love to try local places when we vacation. We try to read reviews about places before visiting. This is a quaint place with a relaxed atmosphere. I had the pecan crusted chicken. It was moist and flavorful with a slight sweet taste. My husband had the fried local shrimp. It was lightly breaded and fabulous! We... More

Fresh fish is always the right choice. If you are lucky enough to get a young blonde waitress by the name of Erin, she will make your experience better with great service. Nice setting here that most couples will enjoy. The shoulder season is ideal for coming out here for sure.

I was here for my first time on Ocracoke Island from Friday afternoon before Columbus Day to Tuesday after Colombus Day. I've got to say that most of the restaurants here are at least forgettable; a few make my "never, never again would I consider going there" list. Back Porch Restaurant is quite different. Ocracoke is basically a small town... More
