“Like a visit at mee-maw's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

My husband and I enjoy trying out new restaurants nearby, so we headed out for a Sunday dinner at the Front Porch in search of fried chicken. The restaurant is in a home built in the mid 1800's and I imagine we were eating in what used to be the parlor. You'll think you were visiting family as you get a friendly, folksy greeting at the front door. Meals are served family style, in that generous
"put some meat on those bones" way grandma would approve of. Southern classics are served here in abundance: fried chicken, meatloaf, pork chops, fried fish etc. along with numerous tempting side dishes like cornbread soufflé and crowder peas. Mashed potatoes come with a big slab of melted butter and God help me, gravy served in a gravy boat. Mm, mm, good. Don't forget to eat dessert (apple cobbler that day). After that feast, you'll need a nap on grandma's sofa...of, I mean, back home.

Outstanding, food was excellent, arrived hot and delivered within five minutes of ordering. Will be going back to the Front Porch next trip to Kennesaw. Price was great.

“Nice dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

We went on a cool Saturday afternoon with our family. I was quite impressed with the beautiful house and the warm and friendly staff. The food is quality Southern food with family dining. The veggies were fresh and the meat was wonderful. If you are in downtown Kennesaw, you must visit.

“Good food, excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

Everything was very good---- just need to remember to ask,, if you can order white meat chicken, if you don't care much for dark meat. But Still tasty and plentiful.

“Beware Food Coma; a wonderful side effect of this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

We are always looking for new places to try and although new for us; this restaurant has a lot of history behind it. History buffs will love this house. Built a little after the civil war and even occupied by a Kennesaw mayor. There are a couple of rooms open for dining with several tables between them (maybe 35 seats) and on a nice day there are tables outside. Do plan on going for a leisurely lunch or dinner, and plan for a nap afterwards as you will be in a food coma. We went for a late-late lunch/early dinner and opted for two meats and four sides. We would have been better off selecting the one meat/three side lunch as it is an excellent value. Our favorites were the meat loaf, fried green tomatoes, and believe it or not the mashed potatoes and white gravy. Cornbread muffins were also good. It is all you can eat and includes your tea and dessert (day we went was peach or apple cobbler). Owner even told us to take the leftovers home. Very nice and eating on china was a special touch. Check out their facebook page as we found their daily menu on it. The food was fresh and delicious. We will return.
