“I live here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is not a restaurant, but a bar that has great music. You can purchase good food next door, about 50 steps away. The music venue changes, but my husband and I have never been disappointed. Check the website for upcoming music. The atmosphere is awesome and you are right on the marina side.

“Lotsa live music with a terrific view, but”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We went to Port A a coupla weeks ago and dropped in for a few sun-downers ... we really enjoyed the music, but the staff was a little slow ... they need to add a coupla of more servers for better table service ... we moved to the bar and the service didn't improve ... I've been to the Back Porch many times and it's always the same story about service ... "Island Time " for sure ... I'll always go back 'cause they have great live music and they stay open late ... go with friends and have a great time ... just remind the girls that good service gets good tips!!! ... No problema

“Great Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

You can't eat at the Back Porch but the Harbor Grill is next door and is great. The Back Porch is right on the water, cold beer, great service, and a great place to meet friends. We have made alot of new friends at the Back Porch. They have live music all the time with very talented artists. The down side is the bar closes in late October and does not open again until mid-March.

“Fun Night!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We visited here for late night music and a few drinks. Thomas Michael Riley provided the music and it was great. This guy loves to have a good time and it shows in his music. I would definitely
come back here.

“Great Outdoor Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

SO MUCH FUN! This place is uplifting, fun, full of locals AND tourist and friendly to all. Please disregard the review that said that this bar was not "hot chick" friend. Many of my good looking super model girlfriends have been treated with more than superior service. Possibly, this reviewer had "Attitude" on her face because the women bartenders are often very attractive. Any waitress would avoid a negative looking patron.
