    The Front Porch is home to some seriously juicy cornmeal-encrusted friend chicken, piled high and deep in a cardboard bucket and dramatically presented tableside. Read more

    This funky, soulful hole-in-the-wall has become an instant success with its neighborhood. Don't miss their crab and grits. Read more

    Rocking chairs with blankets? What a great way to recover! Chicken and waffles (with bacon baked in) was a godsend.

    For brunch today, try The Front Porch. Chef Matt Marcus has done an awesome job revamping the menu. Pro-tip: go for the crab cake Benedict. He has a bomb hollandaise sauce. Read more

    I had the shrimp grits and it was as good as it can get... although I think creole cuisine is not my favourite.

    Laura G. P. · September 29, 2014
  • Jimmy B.

    it starts and ends with the fried chicken. crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside - and deliciously seasoned!

    Amazing southern cookin! Fried okra, bacon wrapped dates, fried chicken, Mac and cheese make this place a gem in San Francisco.

    Fried chicken and waffles, stoner's breakfast. Oh and if you like spicy, be sure to ask for extra spicy for the shrimp and grits!

    They have a heat lamp if you're sitting outside.

    Tasty biscuits and eggs Benedict. Poboy bread isn't authentic New Orleans, disappointing.

    Jason Daniel · August 30, 2014
  • Danny Y.

    The fried chicken is perfect - crispy, delicious skin with juicy, moist chicken. Dr pepper braised ribs will melt in your mouth and some.

    Abita's beer on tap and the Stoner stack were really good. I didn't like the fried okra so much, though.

    You'll find the classiest bucket of chicken in town at The Front Porch. And while it may be a little fancy, it sure is tasty. Read more

    Fucket, get a bucket! Seriously. The fried chicken is glorious. The fried pickles and okra apps, not so much...

    Rob Owen · August 12, 2014

    We had a few starters: beignets, fried okra, & mac 'n cheese. I had their incredible fried chicken & waffles- the bacon in the waffles takes the dish over the top. Everyone left feeling fat and happy!

    Amazing brunch. The Stoner Stack was perfect and be sure to get the grits. I'd pass on the Bloody Mary.

    Comfort food staples are done right, with everything from melt in your mouth braised short ribs to mac and cheese. It's got a cozy atmosphere, with rocking chairs and a checkered floor. Read more

    Bring a boo thang for dinner (start with the bacon wrapped dates), and bring him back in the morning for the chicken and waffles.

    Stoner stack is possibly the greatest fried chicken sandwich of all time.

    The brunch is insane, maybe the best in the city! Fried chicken here can't be beat and they make one hell of a bloody Mary

    If someone offers you a biscuit, gravy, fried chicken, bacon, cheddar with a side of grits, you put on your elastic pants and say yes. (Stoner stack)

    Sarah Bruning Meron · January 1, 2014
  • Dan K.

    Great, juicy fried chicken! The biscuits and Mac n' cheese were top notch delicious. A bit pricier than your typical Southern fare.
