This quaint intimate road side restaurant did not disappoint! It was the best seafood we had our entire trip, very fresh and cooked to perfection! My husband and I wished we would have visited earlier in our stay instead on our last night in Eleuthera....Frances owner/Chef made sure to come out and ask what we liked before offering his recommendations for the evening. We ordered the The seafood sampler and it was amazing, the stone crabs were my favorite ❤️ Sorry forgot to take photos Would highly recommend.More

The best restaurant and meal we had in Eleuthera. I've had stone crabs at Joe's in Miami and Washington DC. Nothing compares to the Stone crabs at The Front Porch. I would like to compliment the incredible staff who include waiter,Demetrius,Chef and owner Francis and...pantry chef and owner Gina and Stephen the bartender. You made my 75th Birthday a very,very special day. Thank you for a memorable evening.More

We drove past nearly every day for 2 weeks. Stopped our last night for an early dinner. We should have sopped sooner! Owner and staff were great. We had fish and junkanoo shrimp. This was by and far best meal on Eleuthera from 3 visits....Lovely little restaurant — 6-8 tables? We were lucky we stopped early so suggest calling for a reservation. This will be a regular stop on future visits.More

We had lunch on new years day at the Front Porch in Hatched Bay. Francis the owner and chef is super friendly and the ambience is warm and inviting. We sat outside and looked out over the bay. We had the guava glazed chicken wings...and the Bahamian shrimp. Both my picky 6 year old and his grandmother enjoyed the meal. Highly recommend!More

This is a lovely little restaurant, which was blessedly open in the low season. Excellent fresh food, prepared by the very friendly chef, Francis, with support from Gina. Let Francis guide you on the meal of the day. The fish was nice and fresh. We...enjoyed the appetizers (for me, a nice and spicy conch chowder). They make great drinks, too! No holding back on the rum. Thans for a splendid evening!More

We ate Conch and curried Lobster just the 2 of...us looking out on Hatchet Bay and were made to feel like we were eating in a private dining room by the owners daughter our server.

The staff is friendly but the prices are shocking! My husband and I don't mind paying $30-$40 for an entree on vacation. The dinner entrees at the Front Porch ranged from $42 to $63 and the view is nothing spectacular. I understand many ingredients are...imported, but I believe these prices are extravagant and unnecessary. Maybe try to go at lunch time.More

Very overpriced. You really can’t see the water but you can hear the noise of the ferry that goes to Nassau and smell the gasoline. Flies descended on our food as soon as it appeared. They lit 2 stereo cans to chase them away to...no avail. Not a nice smell. Awaiting our check. Think it’ll be the most we’ve spent here. Going to go to the Rainbow Inn to end the day on a more positive note. Check came in $198 OMG for 2 people with a bottle of Josh Sauvignon Blanc.More
