“Yumm! Broad menu, everything was good...”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Dropped by for a late lunch while out for a little drive around enjoying the sunny spring day. Waitress, Courtney, was a delight: fun, funny, helpful, patient and very accommodating. The menu was quite extensive and given we were hungry, EVERYTHING looked good. Of course we over-ordered... but we are still enjoying the take-home leftovers, so it's all good!

Ambience/décor: Pretty old/rustic style. Lots of wood booths: quaint but small and a tad cramped. Main room is rather dark and view out the windows is not exactly "scenic" (but the natural light helped lighten the feel in the room).

The meal was universally GREAT:
- Clam chowder was steaming hot, very flavorful and lots of clams
- Clam and scallop dinner with onion rings: YUM! Clams were a bit smaller than I like, but to be expected given the season. Scallops, large and sweet. But the onion rings made all the difference. PERFECT -- not too thick, perfectly crisp.
- Pulled pork sandwich: generous portion, good flavor, loved the BBQ sauce, topped with... the yummy onion rings. :-)
- No room for an ice cream, but the waitress gave my husband an generous spoonful for tasting the purple cow. A perfect end to a very nice meal.

We were interested in the evening special, but were too early. We CLEARLY need to come back! We are betting, "in season', this place must be PACKED.

“Great service and excellent food”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Great Waters Music Festival has been using Morrissey's Front Porch almost exclusively for performers meals the past three years. We sometimes call on a (very busy) Friday night with 10-15 individual orders and the service has always been fantastic! The person taking the order is always pleasant and professional and the performers ALWAYS let us know how great the food is. Thank you Morrisseys Front Porch for all you do!

“Affordable, delicious and soooo many choices”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Can't get the butternut squash out of my mind, it was the highlight of 3 days of dining out for me. I had the terriyaki steak tips and they were great. The fried clams were tasty, but I like a clam with more of a belly. The pie was great and there were many ice cream flavors to choose from. One in our party had rum raisin and another butter crunch. Waitress was awesome and the chef came out and was friendly. No fancy decor, just clean old fashioned wonderful!

“Nice place for lunch”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

We stopped by this restaurant on a drive around the lake. The waitress was very friendly and we were sat at a nice table with a view out the back garden. I had green cob salad and my wife had French onion soup. Both were really nice. We then had a ice cream sundae each. Both were great. The interior seems to be very old and quaint. Would highly recommend

“Return=disappointment”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Remembering a dish from last year, we returned. I ordered the same Seafood medley with Creme Rosa over linguini. ICK. watery tasteless creme rosa over limp linguini that was way past al dente--closer to al gummy---and the seafood was not seasoned, scallops like rubber, lobster stringy and tough, shrimp and crab the same. This dish had obviously been microwaved to produce that level of molten lava. What happened to the delicious dish of last year? My husband was very disappointed in his fish and chips as well. Suspect frozen and nuked.
I will say their white chocolate bread pudding with butterscotch sauce and whipped cream was almost worth the sugar coma, but over all the food was not good and the coffee is terrible.
The staff is friendly and cheerful.The restaurant was not crowded so we were served very quickly. One would have thought the chef---- who I observed leave the kitchen and use the rest room no less than 6 times in the hour we were there----- would have had time to prepare the food properly. Adding insult to injury we dined at several other places much more upscale and paid LESS than at the Front Porch. Will not return next year
