Very nice place to eat

My husband and I ate there. He had an awesome hamburger. I had a good salad, however they ran out of the vegetable soup I ordered. Interesting how they converted this small home into a restaurant. Waitress was very friendly. Note they are only open for lunch.

I went here planning to get the plate lunch, but the vegetables sounded pretty ordinary, therefore opted for the chicken salad sandwich, which was okay, but I would not say anything special. Will try something different next time.

The Front Porch is the kind of eatery one dreams of finding in every small town in the USA. Far too many have been forced to close their doors. It is welcoming with a friendly, efficient staff. The food is southern fresh. On our last visit we had the soup & quiche, but it is the pie that keeps us... More

Charming atmosphere in an old house. This time we sat on the front porch (it's enclosed) and it was quite comfortable even though it was cold outside. Lunch was good as always. Smart to go with the daily specials which were hot and more appealing on a cold day. The salads are great in the summer. Service is good and... More

I was pleasantly surprised to discover the availabilty of good healthy food at this restaurant. They offer a vegetable plate with a choice of four vegetables which I gather changes from day to day. I enjoyed all the vegetables even though a couple of them were cooked southern style but they were not greasy! The salad contained a variety of... More

Nice resturant placed in an older home in Dickson's Downtown area. They have very good daily cooked food. There is always a daily special or you can order off of a menu. It can get a little crowded, but it is worth the trip. Everytime we have food catered to the office, we are delighted when we find out they... More

Visited on Sunday. A more limited menu but everything was good. Our party sampled everything on this menu. Quaint atmosphere.

Ensconced in a former residence, this a lovely, tea room like, cafe. Very tastefully decorated, it is a perfect spot to enjoy a civilized lunch. There is a very good menu, but the treasure lies on the special board which changes daily. Service is very good. Prices are reasonable.

This restaurant does not handle large groups well. We had a group of 18 the restaurant starting to run out of food and started to make the portions much small than the first plates that come out.
