Description: We specialize in delicious scratch-made food. You will not find pre-prepared or frozen, heated up foods here. We use local ingredients wherever possible and our culinary creations span from Granny's recipes to fine dining at affordable costs. We opened on September 1, 2012 after an extensive renovation and we really enjoy what we do. Come on down and enjoy old favorites like fried green tomatoes and catfish, or try a Lowcountry Bucket or Shrimp and Grits. Whatever your tastes, we have a dish for you and some unique things, too. You won't find fresher food or friendlier people that are genuinely happy to serve you. It's what we love to do.

It was a wonderful lunch! There were 5 of us in our group and every single bite we had was great! The price is extremely reasonable, the fried green tomatoes were delicious and the specials of today - Filet Tips and Honey Salmon were excellent and have forever spoiled us!Give it a try, the portions are huge, the staff is great, friendly and add to the whole atmosphere of the restaurant. The only regret we had was that we were all too full to eat the chocolate cake!

The staff were so friendly - Barbara & the gentlemen were great hosts. The food was really good too. We ordered mozzarella "logs" as our app, which were definitely homemade (fried in tempura batter?) and not a waste of stomach space. For dinner we had the fried green tomato BLT, which was great with the basil aoli instead of bacon as a vegetarian option. I probably could've made a meal out of just the veggie sides - Cajun macaroni & cheese, fried cabbage, green apple slaw. Delicious!!

Had a most delicious meal at the Front Porch. The 6 oz. filet was so tender that we cut it with our fork. The food was unbelievable, the service (Barbara was our server) was outstanding, and the management was checking on everyone to make sure they were happy with their food. OOO, and the homemade french dressing...UNBELIEVABLE!! If you are down that way, be sure to stop in!!

I am a local and have eaten here before...I brought my yankee friends from Illinois and all thought it was the best steak they ever had...simply outstanding....and outstanding service....if you go, ask for Barbara...she's the best! And if you go on Saturday nights, you get to hear live blue grass music....I would say this....Guy from Drive ins, dinner and dives needs to visit this place...if you are in our area...go to the Front Porch!
