We drove to this place twice to enjoy the best crabs anywhere. Everything on menu is just as good. You won't be sorry.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Spent our anniversary in Eleuthera last summer. We have visited the island several times, and even re-newed our vows there a few years ago. We had read about the Front Porch, while scouring the internet for new places to eat while there. This place is AMAZING!! Hands down THE BEST restaurant on the island. We told the owner it was our anniversary, and he prepared a feast for us, fit for a king. Every dish he prepared was amazingly delicious!! The service was outstanding. The evening we ate there, ( our anniversary ) the restaurant was closed. However, they opened up just to us, which made us feel like rock stars!
If you ever go to Eleuthera, DO NOT miss this place. Amazing food. Amazing service. Amazing location.

“This gem should be rated the #1 restaurant in Eleuthera!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Francis and Gina are the most welcoming hosts, we quickly became friends, and eating at the Front Porch was wonderful. Francis is a talented chef, the food was fresh and incredibly flavorful. We enjoyed it so much that ate there 2 times during a 4 day visit and it was excellent. We enjoyed the fresh grilled seafood platter, the Junkanoo Shrimp and the "Stoned" crab claws. They used herbs from their own garden. The stone crab claws were as large as a man's hand! We love this place!

“It was like dining with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

What a delightful meal! Friends had recommended the Front Porch to us so we made a reservation since it was during the holidays and the island was busy. Very glad we did. There are only 4 or 5 tables and the food is cooked to order so the tables are not "turned over " as they are in most restaurants. The proprietors, Francis and Gina were the nicest and most friendly couple. There was a menu, however Francis suggested the freshly caught lobster and fish which we gladly selected. The food was prepared nicely with potatoes and green beans and everything was absolutely delicious!!

“Best cooking on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Francis and Gina are the most welcoming hosts--they have quickly become friends--and eating at the Front Porch is always wonderful. They really know how to cook--the food is always fresh and incredibly flavorful--never had even a mediocre meal there--it is consistently excellent. The Front Porch is relaxed and informal but the food is top notch. We love this place!
