Small dining experience, cozy and quaint. It makes for a nice place for good conversation. If you go for your birthday don't plan on them providing a dessert for celebration. They don't offer that service.

Consistency is what we enjoy about the Yellow Porch. The food is excellent and the service is always superb! They have a few staples on the menu, but also have a nightly special that is delectable as well.
