Consistently one of the best meals I have when dining out. Food, service, ambiance - perfect. Don't miss the coffee flambe!

Our experience here was not great. Bland bread. Not so great lobster salad appetizer. Tasteless grilled pork dish with a nasty tasting sauce that covered half the plate. Our server never even asked how the meal was. The salmon was pretty good. Would not return. So many better places in Rehoboth.

It is extremely hard to improve on an outstanding review, but these folks have done. After twenty years of dining at the Back Porch Cafe, they outdid themselves with a delicate menu, exceptional flavors and great service. The sautéed sweetbreads should not be missed! Solid wine list. Congratulations on excellence year after year.

Nice atmosphere and an ambitious menu. Otherwise, it was disappointing. The waiter needs training on how to serve wine. Nothing was awful, just not well prepared. My salmon was over cooked and served on cold something - not as described. Across the group, we had beet salad, frois gras, beef carpacio, duck entre, rockfish entre, the steak, and my salmon. Ho hum.

Some of the reviews weren't too positive but we were happy with our experience at Back Porch. We made a reservation in person (or you can call) for dinner. We went on a Monday night when glasses of wine are half price. Our food included crab ravioli, diver scallop (outstanding appetizer), beet salad, lobster salad, beef tenderloin and pork tenderloin. We saved the best for last....crème brulee!! It was the best crème brulee ever!!! We are wondering if they are short of help. Our waitress seemed to always be rushing and appeared a bit overwhelmed. She was fine but we wondered if she was working more tables than she should have been.
