“Great Bar”
Reviewed 7 September 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!”
Reviewed 31 August 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”
Reviewed 24 August 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.

“Party in Port Aransas”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

I live in Port Aransas, TX and frequent the Back Porch Bar with friends and clients. It is an open air facility on the warf next to the Harbor Grill. You can sit and enjoy a cold beverage with your friends, enjoy the view of the harbor boats and watch ships go through the ship channel. FRIENDLY people and staff and they even provide water and treats for your nice dog, yes, I did say dogs are invited. They even have great bands several times a week that start at 9pm. Wacky Wednesday with $2.00 dollar drinks. When you get hungry for a meal or hor'dourves just order from the Harbor Grill that also provides great sandwiches, seafood and nachos for a very reasonable price. Spend the day fishing or on the beach and party at the Back Porch Bar.......
