My companion and I recently had Saturday night dinner at this restaurant. We enjoyed a wonderful meal and starting by sharing the appetizer of scallops, lentils and salmon roe. The scallops were well seared and meaty, the lentils firm and tasty and the roe had a superb briny flavor. For entrees I had the pan seared halibut that was fantastic.... More

Jazz weekend is a great experience in Rehoboth. Combining the best restaurant in Rehoboth and being able to sit outside in 70 degree weather for brunch at the Back Porch made our weekend. The brunch menu is all inclusive. It is not just eggs, although those dishes looked fabulous. The bread basket served at each table is like nothing we... More

Had our first and not the last Sunday Brunch at Back Porch. Food was fantastic and you can tell by the quality that the Chef knows his trade. Great taste, really good sauces and the pate was excellent. Would highly recommend and have a feeling I am just playing catch-up, that the locals already know about this great restaurant.

We went to the Back Porch towards the end of the season. It had been several years since we visited this establishment and shame on us for not going as often as we can, even with parking meters and Rehoboth Beach traffic! We had a delightful dinner and everything was seasoned perfectly and just excellently prepared. Our waitstaff was great... More
