Great place to grab a drink, chill out and watch the action (at the bar and on the water). Service not real quick, and we had to belly up to the bar to get waited on. ???Maybe shift change? Looks like it's a jumping place.

What do you want? This place is great! The beer is cold and you have a great view. I can smoke my Davidoff's and not get a hard time. It's a bar and I will be back as soon as I can.

The Back Porch is a great place to have a drink outside and enjoy live music. Very casual atmosphere, so throw on flip flops, shorts and a t-shirt and you are good to go. Feels like it should be in a Jimmy Buffet song. It can get crowded so don't expect a romantic atmosphere; be prepared to get to know the people sitting next to you. Heard the place was just sold; hope they don't change it!

Can't beat the Back Porch for lots of activity. Locals, tourists alike all flock to the this outdoor bar on the pier at the water's edge. Beer's cold, service is great & you can't beat the fresh air, live music and a dolphin or two swimming by. Doesn't get much better & always on my list when in Port A. Great new outdoor furniture this season too!

Only one question ~ since when does a beer brewed in Texas become an 'import'? Seems like a lot of places in town consider an in state brand to be an 'import' when it comes to pricing. Gotta admit it's worth the extra buck but 'import' come on...

Port A is definitely a world class drinking town. And our favorite place is the Back Porch. They have great music and any kind of drink you want. Next door is the Harbor Grill and it has the best fish sandwich on the island.
