This is Southwestern Pennsylvania cuisine at it's best. Beautiful location in a small town and great service. The combination of spices and side dishes to the main course are always fun to try. Portions are large so there is always leftovers to take home. The...More

Our waitress was outstanding, the food was tastyand attractive but the room was a bit chilly - even the men thought so. Price was good and we had plenty of food.

We’ve eaten here several times including for our anniversary. Everything has always been very good although the onion soup was a bit salty one time. The deserts are excellent but usually we’re stuffed from dinner.

I have been going to the Back Porch for over 20 years. I have never been disappointed by their food. A must have is the Lobster Bisque. It is excellent! Also, save room for dessert! They are all home made and absolutely delicious!
