Food was excellent, service was great. Just not an ideal place for lunch outside in July!! Worst part, turning to leave and seeing a fan not being used!! Inside was minimal seating. Better suited for drinking not a lunch with the family.

Unreliable food. One friend said the burger was great. Others were not satisfied with fried seafood quality or quantity. Not much seating. Not enough wait staff.

The best feature is the view of the Beaufort River and the marina. Nice parking lot. Food is slightly above average but the service has been bad.

We had a very nice meal and fun time. Can sit indoors or out, full service bar. Menu is not fancy, but has good variety. Staff was very attentive and took good care of customers.

A great location overlooking the Port Royal Landing Marina, with a nice menu of finger food, salads and sandwiches. Not fancy nor expensive, but good old at affordable prices and a picture perfect location.

We usually love Back Porch but the service is sketchy at best. Some days it's great but on our last visit there was only one other table on the deck with customers. After waiting 5 minutes we left went to Mexican and was served promptly....More

This is not the venue. I would think it may be to casual and not big enough. It would be fun for a fewer people
