We go there often. Staff is very friendly. Really go all out when decorating for Christmas. I love the turkey club sandwich. The bisque is great. I recommend the eggs Benedict for breakfast. All meals are large.

Spent a leisurely breakfast out on the front porch overlooking Boggey Bayou. Perfect day! Eggs Benedict was superb accompanied by a fresh fruit dish! Waitress was efficient, friendly and attentive. Absolutely enjoyed the morning.

An unassuming little place with a ton of charm. Very friendly staff, quick service, excellent food, and the best/smoothest coffee I've ever tasted. Definitely will be back here.

Had the big fish, be less the bread. Very good! Most dishes are great. Today, 17apr17, they had lobster bisque that was very nice with not too much cream.

I have only tried breakfast here but I can honestly say that it was one of the best I have ever had. I tried the crab cakes with grits, of course. Huge portions and excellent taste. I highly recommend!

The Front Porch in Niceville is a hidden jewel. For an old fashioned country breakfast you can't beat it. Not much atmosphere, but really good food.

We love mom and pop dining places, but this was disappointing. We went on a Saturday around 11am. Inside was tight and crowded. There was a wait because they were busy. Usually a good sign. We got seated and got coffee. And...that was the last...More
