The food at Front Porch is so good that we ate there 2 times in the 6 days we were in Eleuthera. It is in my opinion the best food on the Island. If I come back eating here will be my first stop. The crab clown are as big as my hand and the guava hot wings were so... More

My wife and I went to this wonderful restaurant twice on our four-day trip to Eleuthera. We would highly recommend it. While it is, like most other decent restaurants on the island, not cheap, if you're on vacation, you really can't worry about that. The owners were charming, and the food exceedingly fresh, and not overdone. We particularly enjoyed the... More

We waited 2 years to come back to Eleuthera and the Front Porch! Neither disappointed us. The Front Porch can't be beat for a delicious fresh caught meal. Hats off to Francis!

We ate here 2 times while we were in Eleuthera. We had the Stone Crab Claws both times and a Lobster once. They both were huge and wonderful. Francis and his wife were extremely friendly and the view was fantastic.

Passing through Hatchet Bay, we decided to stop for lunch and had a meal on the Front Porch. The food was fresh and prepared to order, completely worth the wait.

During our week long visit to Eleuthera we ate at the Front Porch twice. Francis and Gina, the owners, are gracious and kind. The obvious pride that they take in their establishment is evident in every detail. The lunch specials of grouper fish cakes and conch wontons were so good we came back later in the week for dinner. We... More

We started outside on the deck. Sunset was gorgeous. The bugs were vicious. We moved inside and they weren't much better but we lathered in spray and continued with dinner. Very nice people. Dinner was great. Had the stone crab, lobster and shrimp dishes.
