The last time we ate here was in 2006 (TA wouldn't let me go back further); the time before that was 2005. In that year, something had gone awry with food/service, which was average and cursory at best. Since we'd been in the past and had a good meal (thou somewhat expensive for what you get; let's face it: much of the enchantment about this place is the atmosophere and proximity to the beach). We chalked our bad experience up to a the restaurant simply experiencing an "off" night. The next year my elderly father and I ate there and before dinner had even started, he literally fell into a hole on the porch and nearly injured himself. In the process he upset the table and water went spilling everywhere. The man who I believe co-owns Back Porch was seating us that night and he never even bothered to apologize, nor did he offer to replace the sopping tablecloth. He only set a pile of napkins on the spill and left the rags there throughout our dinner. Once he realized that we were not ordering drinks, he wanted nothing more to do with us. This was a distinct difference in the way we had been treated the year before; being then a large group of five, all ordering drinks. There are much better, more reasonably priced, and less pretentious places to eat in Rehoboth. One we particularly like is Big Fish Grill on Rt. 1. It doesn't have that boardwalk feel, but it has fantastic, fresh seafood, good prices, and great service. And, you can eat outside. Ah, but alas, there are no holes in the floor to fall thru.
