“Great spot”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

The Front Porch was one of our favortie places we enjoyed. Loved the view from the patio, loved the food and enjoyed the gift shop. The stone crab was amazing. So happy we were able to experience such a great spot.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

In the 2 weeks we spent in Eleuthera we enjoyed the food at this restaurant the most. They serve fresh, local food with an emphasis on fresh seafood. The stone crabs are amazing and if you go to Eleuthera I recommend that you find this place and order them. We we went for dinner to Front Porch the night we arrived (Thurs) because we had heard so much about it from other Trip Advisor members but we were not able to get in due to a booking by a group. We went back the next day (Fri) for lunch and there was a sign on the door saying "gone fishing, back at 5pm", we went back at 6 and the sign was still up and the restaurant was closed. This went on for Sat, Sun, and Mon. We didn't try to get in on Tues because we were at the other end of the Island that day but we went back on Wed and the doors were opened, but when we went inside the owner informed us that Wed was their day off and the restaurant was closed!!! My goodness! We went back on Thurs and had a fabulous meal and over the following week we ate there another 4 times. What can I say, it's Eleuthera, roll with it :)

“Fantastic Seafood”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Family owned and serviced. The seafood sharing plate for $75 was great value and couldn't have been more fresh. The steamed seafood was amazing but the fried fish was some of the best I'd ever had. Enjoy.

This was the best dinner we had during our vacation. So fresh; well seasoned and excellent home cooking. Very relaxed, but attentive staff.

“Great home cooked meal and family charm”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

This place is really nice. The owners, Francis and Gina, do it all from catching the fish to cooking to serving to cleaning up and to entertaining. As a result, don't be in a rush. Just relax and enjoy.
