This place is always packed . If you are starving then not sure if this is the right fit for you since everytime I been there it’s always full of people. The food is good and the service it’s also good.

We visit the Front Porch every time we’re in South Beach. Today was especially good: fresh fish, good wine at happy hour prices. What could be better? Excellent service by Stefan A. This was out second visit this trip; we’ll probably go back tomorrow. Forget...More

Had breakfast there twice. I had their granola pancakes and a ruben omelette. Both were excellent. Great place for people watching. Menu is extensive. Good service.

Budget friendly menu with good assortment of items. My wife had a shrimp pasta and I had blackened Mahi Mahi. Both were delicious. Service was very good. Had both indoor and outdoor (covered and uncovered) options.

Saw the good reviews and noticed that the online menu was very extensive if a bit expensive. Tried it out and was glad I did. Lovely setting though set back from the beach. Helpful and pleasant staff.

We ate here after just wandering around Miami Beach. The food was good and the drinks were strong and excellent! The location is what makes this place great with open air seating close to the beach (not a beach view).
