    Loved the atmosphere and the view. We didn't wait long considering they were busy. I had the Mahi Mahi stuffed crab and it was delicious along with the twice baked potato. Mmmm

    I've eaten at The Back Porch many times and have never been disappointed. Their seafood is always fresh and I've never had issues with bad service. This time I got the grouper and it was great!

    The smoked tuna dip is awesome!! Crab cakes were ok, but have light batter on them... But the twice baked potato is also equally amazing!!

    One of the best seafood restaurants I've been to. My family members each ordered different things (boiled shrimp, raw oysters, stuffed mahi, stuffed flounder, crab cakes, stuffed shrimp...) ALL delish

    A favorite when in Destin. The latest addition of the beach porch is the best Great Mahi, grouper destin and fresh fried shrimp. The service however varies. A return visitor more than twice.

    A place where the chefs can be trusted: everything we tried was absolutely delish. The blackened amberjack was top notch. + Friendly service & beachfront location = highly recommended.

    The Back Porch Oysters are a huge disappointment. Solid concept but horrible execution. The oyster themselves are small, covered with enough crab and cheese to drown out any flavor what so ever.
