We stopped by on emancipation day expecting it to be closed like everywhere else. Instead, we were treated to the BEST meal we had on the island. Lobster and stone crab were both out of this world!! Incredibly fresh!!

The Front Porch is a special place. A very small establishment as it is out of their home. The crab boil was so delicious it completely melted in your mouth! Definitely worth a try if you’re in the area!
