This was one of our friends suggestions and it was very good. Other than the lack of air flow where we sat, the food and atmosphere was great. Todd was a great server and was the best service we had all week by far. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we all agreed this will have to replace another spot to make it on the list.

If you are Destin and craving for good seafood you have to eat here. I ordered grouper in several restaurants in Destin and nothing compares to the one served in The Back Porch. It's cooked extra carefully to keep the fish moisture during grilling.

Great food and drinks. We had great food but the staff were a little snippy guess its end of the season and they are burned out!

We were looking for a place in the beach with fried pickles. Well we found The Back Porch. We absolutely loved the food!! What a great Beach Restaurant. Perfect location!! Outdoor seating looked nice, but we had a group of 9 so we had to sit inside. It was pretty pricey, but so is almost everywhere in Destin.
Service was great, even on a busy night we didn't have to wait long.
