We have passed this restaurant many times over our 5 visits to Eleuthera, this time called and made reservations for 4 adults and 2 children on 4/1/16 after reading Tripadvisor reviews. All of us, kids included, voted top 3 of restaurants we have had meals at over the years. We will most certainly be back next year. The stone crab... More

We have been 8 times to the Front Porch and this restaurant is definitively our favorite for fine dining when in Eleuthera. Francis and Gina are great chefs and wonderful hosts. The seafood, lobster, crab, fish are always fresh of the day, perfectly cooked with a creative touch, and the sides are great as well. The place is intimate, inviting... More

Walked up from Hatchett Bay to pay our mooring fee and thought we were walking into someone's home until I saw the tables set up on the porch looking out over the bay. This is probably the best food I've had since coming to the Bahamas. Perfectly done, very fresh, excellently seasoned food and the atmosphere couldn't have been nicer.... More

This is our third time visiting Eleuthera and our second time eating at Front Porch. I called on Monday to make reservations for Thursday. Francis the owner answered the phone and accepted our reservation for two. I asked if he will have stone crabs and he said yes. We arrived on Thursday evening and was greeted by Francis. He said...

We were hungry, it looked cute, we stopped- SO GLAD we did! Decor, service, food, friendliness. Wendy was wonderful, warm and inviting. The spot is colorful, clean and overlooks the boats in the bay. The food was super fresh and so good. These are hands on small business owners that care about their guests and their establishment. If you are... More

From the moment we walked in the door we not only felt welcomed but it was very clear that the owner valued our business. He told us so. The service was "island prompt" - remember, all the food is made to order. The view off the porch was lovely. Food was very good and just the right portion size. The... More

The Restaurant is right on the Queen's Highway; signage does not do it justice. Small bar/restaurant with outside seating overlooking boats in the bay. We had mushroom soup with cracked crab --- awesome! Delicious!

Arrived on a Thursday evening and the place was empty. Owner was a nice enough guy but everything felt a little too informal, like we had just dropped by for dinner at an acquaintance's place. What turned me off immediately were the little lizards and bugs on the walls as well as the very drunk and overly chatty guy at... More

We made a reservation at this lovely spit because we knew stone crabs would be on the menu that night. When we arrived we were the only patrons there. We were greeted warmly by Gina and treated to fresh stone crabs for an appetizer and grouper and mani for,our entrees. Everything was perfect including the hospitality. Be warned, the stone... More
