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.

We had a wonderful time at The Back Porch this past weekend. The food was delicious. My husband missed having his usual Caesar salad, but otherwise everything was perfect. The service is also wonderful, friendly and knowledgable. The tables are TINY. Be prepared to have...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!

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.
