It's a charming busy restaurant. Excellent for adults I'm not sure my kids would enjoy it. Great wine choices and southern seafood. Lots of delicious choices! Put it on your list of musts!

We really enjoyed our dinner here, the food and service was very good. They have a very nice wine list and the porch area is a neat place to sit.

Family and I enjoyed our dinner. I had the pecan encrusted mahi mahi with jumbo lump crabmeat and that was a satisfying and elegant dish. The jasmine rice and mixed summer vegetables on the side truly complemented the entree. I even finished my husband's -...More

My wife and I have frequented this restaurant for more than 20 years back to the time that Debbie Wells was the owner. Always excellent for many years but now, even though the prices have kept pace, the quality just isn't there any more. I...More

We come back annually and the Back Porch always delivers a great meal. This year we devoured the shrimp empanadas, the ribeye (wow) and the pecan crusted mani, topped with crab and beurre blanc, oh my. The fish was perfect. Perfect. Dessert was the ever...More

Steady fare, appetizers quiet good, bar menu and "lunch-box" (ham sandwich is a star) facility are an excellent options.

Hi Tim! How can you air condition a screen porch? If you want to sit in AC at the Back Porch go sit inside at the banquette. It's cool and charming. I live here and rarely go out to the screened in porch. Too hot in the summer. Too cool in the winter. Still my favorite place to go have a drink after work. Bar menu is spectacular. Beatle knows how to make any drink you can come up with. Wait staff is full of local color. Sorry. I digress. So, can you tell me how you would go about air conditioning the screened porch?
