Had the 1/2 chicken dinner - it was great, do not remember when we have eaten that much skin - the breading was great. Corn bread, green beans and mashed potatoes were great. Pie was good but not great Service was super fast so throw out the latest comments about that - did not even get time to finish salad... More

We come here often. The same problem is a constant….slow fried chicken. We are seated quickly, watered up, ordered up after checking on the wait for the chicken (coming right up we are told) and then 30 to 40 minutes later I get my order of fried chicken. Please strive for accuracy on your estimate, or better yet, get another... More

Nothing is fancy at the Front Porch but everything that I have tasted there is good. Down home, country vittles type good. The employees are all friendly and welcoming, and the service is good too. The fried chicken is so good that I have a hard time ordering anything else, but when I have, the other items were good too.... More

We tried this place a couple years ago & didn't like it. Had to sit out in the smoking porch & service was awful. A friend encouraged us to try it again & happy we did. Food & service were excellent. Had a half Cuban press & bean soup. Hubby had a burger, both were very tasty & responsible priced.... More

We have eaten here two times in two weeks. Great home cooking food with a great atmosphere. The food is always home cooked and outstanding. They give large portions! It is a must. Tuesday is Chicken and Dumplins day! YUMMY. No MSG in the food....good thing!

My family and I come to Dunnellon to visit friends and we make sure to always make a stop at the front porch. The food is always great and the service is too. We have also ordered pies to go and they are delicious. We have been lucky and never had to wait to be seated but I hear that... More

We discovered this place after cruising through downtown Dunellon. We had our dogs with us and they were so welcoming, giving us a nice table on the breezy porch and bringing us water for our thirsty beasts. The food was old fashioned and good. Homemade soup was excellent. Pie was good if a little pricey (nearly $5 a slice but... More
