They have a new menu coming out next week. Prices have doubled. I ordered a quesadilla that is 5.49 on menu. (4 small triangles with no sides). On the new menu next week, it is $10.99. DOUBLE!! They tried to charge me that, but did change it when we complained. Waitress was nice, but prices will be outrageous.

We walk in and every table looked like they dont have anyone who cares to clean tables. Of the dirty tables we selected we proceeded to stand by that table waiting to be serviced and watched helpless as waitress after waitress walks past us. After relocating to the only clean table on the patio after more failed attempts at flagging... More

We've been here a number of times. When it's nice weather on the lake and you want to eat, you can usually get a table quickly vs Sams boat or Wolfies. We've always known that the service is usually not stellar and just accept it and the food isn't anything to yell about... Today, the service was better than usual,... More

Only went there once for crayfish and if you like walking through a smoke filled dining room to be able to sit outside then this place is for you. Wait staff is terrible, wait forever to get food or drink. There are better places on the water to eat.

If you want to dock your boat at the bar after a long day on the lake and have an average beer in a plastic cup, this is your place. It seems like a Rockin place on a Saturday night in the Summer though. I wouldn't recommend it as a lunch spot to take your spouse. It's purely a boat... More

This place is on Lake Conroe and has a smoky bar if you like that kind of thing where you can meet the locals and also a back porch, smoke free, with a nice view of the lake. Typical beer, burgers, and fries "ice house" but location and staff make it exceptional for these places.

There are some great burgers at The Back Porch. You build your own with all kinds of great stuff. I have read some of the other reviews, but we had a great waitress. She got everything right, even though we all had special instructions for our meals. I'm not much for noise, and it was very loud inside so we... More

This place has gone downhill big time. We went yesterday and waited a good 20 minutes before any of the waitresses acknowledged that we were there. I had to wave my arms to get their attention. The staff are extremely lazy and could care less about the customers which is a shame because I usually tip very well, however, due... More
