Every time we go to Eleuthera we make it a point to eat at the Front Porch. Wonderful owners & wonderful food. What more can I say? Simply the best food on the island and TFP would be a favorite restaurant anywhere in the world. Call ahead and make a reservation.

My wife and I recently had the great pleasure of dining at the Front Porch restaurant. Until we visited the Front Porch, we had found that most of the food on the island was overpriced and of mediocre quality. This is absolutely not the case with the Front Porch. The quality of the food at Front Porch is unsurpassed by... More

Francis and his wife were amazing. They treated us amazingly and the food was excellent. This is the best restaurant on the inland everything made to order. They only take reservations so it is very quiet with a great view of the harbour. We will eat here anytime we are on the island in the future.

Every time I go I try something new and each dish is as delicious as the last. Best food on the island in my opinion. The people are amazingly friendly also, feels like I'm at home each time I visit.

This is our third trip to Eleuthera and we finally managed to get to the Front Porch - and we were all very glad that we did. The food was excellent and Francis and Gina, who run it, were very hospitable and welcoming. We had dinner one evening and lunch on the day we left. Both were excellent. Francis learned... More

We found this place just driving down queens highway, walked in and was greeted with very friendly local staff. The service was quick, and the food was fresh. Made to order style . The view out back was a cool site, the food was a little expensive but did not feel guilty paying for it. It wasn't crowded which was... More

Francis was on hand to assist us with a very special lunch. Everything about this restaurant is like being at home. Our friend Scott loved Max the dog. Everything was impeccable well done and delicious. Crawfish salad, grouper cakes and shrimp cocktail. So good! Every attention to detail with the vegetables and spices. So well prepared. You must stop at... More

Went to eat lunch and it was absolutely fantastic. The Jerk shrimp was wonderful. We also had the wings as an appetizer and they tasted great. We had great service and they were very friendly. I would recommend this highly.
