Description: Back Porch Oyster Bar Restaurant is inspired by coastal North Carolina cuisine, our seafood is fine dining in a fun atmosphere. Our menu runs the gamut from simple fried catfish to Ahi tuna tartare, pan seared Chilean Sea Bass in a lemon beurre blanc, and cold water lobster tails. We also have a wide selection of cold water oysters from Northeastern U.S. and Canada. Yes you can find great seafood in the North Georgia Mountains!!

OK. I live in Charleston, SC. I am pyschotic about seafood. Has to be fresh, has to be really good, has to be properly prepared, not over cooked, etc. What are the odds of finding a place in the mountains that does it better than most in Charleston?? Well...here it is..the Back Porch is excellent in every way. We have been several times while in Dahlonega..on one of our trips, we ate there 4 nights in a row. It is that good.

The food was good, service was okay, BUT prices were a bit extreme. I mean $19.50 for fried shrimp! But overall the visit was great and we enjoyed it. We will be back! Owners were NOT rude, in fact they both chatted with us before and after our meal.

Owners very rude. Wouldn't tell us where other good places were. Food very costly. Service poor. What a shame. Right on square and would be a great location to just chill.
