This was by far our favorite meal while in Eleuthera. The food was delicious and lovingly prepared. Seasoned just right with perfect balance. We had the best garden grown arugula salad and an amazing mushroom soup with crab claw meat. For entrees, we had the grouper and lobster. Divine! Gina and Francis were both so lovely and welcoming. It was... More

The food was delicious but expensive. We went on New Year's Eve and there was a special menu which was probably more expensive than usual. This place only had 3 tables. It is TINY. There is no view - the back overlooks a parking lot and the ferry dock. But the decor is cute. The staff were all extremely nice... More

We had dinner at the Front Porch for my husband's birthday and we had a blast! Everything is great: food, decor, service, music...! Francis and his team made all possible for us to have a birthday cake with candles and they were so friendly and welcoming :) Good people and good food make you happy! The menu is a little... More

Front Porch was by far our most favorite place to come for dinner while enjoying a nice view over a nearby bay and their mooring below. The owner Francis was welcoming and kind. We had plenty of great meals in the Bahamas but Francis dinner was memorial. And after some research prior to our arrival, we had discovered our cruising... More

My husband and I ate here on Thanksgiving and had an amazing meal. We didn't miss the traditional turkey and dressing at all. The owners were incredible and they made the experience over the top. Going back tonight.

I saw the surf board signs the 2nd time we past it ans remembered that the front porch was rated well on trip advisor so we stopped. The meal was good, the view exceptional and the staff the best part of all. We got to talk to the owner/waiter (fransis) while we lunched as we were the only people in... More

Our group stopped in heading back to Gregory Town from Governor's Harbor after 1648 and Rainbow Inn were both closed, and we were very happy with the decision! The food was the best we had on the island and the Goombay Smashes were up there too! Great porch overlooking the harbor in Hatchet Bay, great little gift shop, pretty gardens,... More

Front Porch was by far our most favorite place to come for drinks and dinner while enjoying a nice view over a nearby bay. The owner Francis made our visit even more enjoyable by treating us like family. We had plenty of phenomal meals here, including fresh crab Francis had caught himself. This is a great spot to finish your... More
