Finally made it to this Rehoboth Beach institution. Delicious bellinis, a lovely salad and scones. The four of us chose various egg-based dishes. I had the Eggs Benedict which didn't disappoint. Topped it off with a cappuccino. Looking forward to the dinner menu next season.

Basically, we loved this place. The atmosphere is old-school funky sea-side, with wooden beams and ceilings, and then white table cloths in contrast to the interior. We were seated in a corner table in the bar, the restaurant was quite busy and bustling around 8:30...More

Ignore their website - the pictures there imply the inside is sort of dark and overdone. It's actually really cute, staff was awesome, owner was onhand and super friendly, food was great - wonderful wine selection. Eager to return!

The Back Porch was our choice for our intimate 50th anniversary celebration for two and we couldn't have made a better decision. From beginning to end the experience was delightful. We started by sharing the soft crab appetizer, substantial enough for an entree for one....More

I had dinner with a friend at the Back Porch on Saturday, September 23rd. The atmosphere was very nice. We had two appetizers: the chicken stuffed with escargot and the tuna. The tuna was unremarkable. The chicken had an interesting sauce but was largely unimpressive....More

You will have no trouble finding the restaurant since it has been in business over 40 years. It is a "fine dining" experience for both lunch and dinner. The wine list is extensive. The cooking is flavorful, creative and thoroughly enjoyable. Please include this in your listings.
