The Back Porch Seafood & Oyster House got started in a small, A-frame building on the beach. We instantly made a name for ourselves by serving delicious gulf seafood with the best view in Destin. A few years later we invented the Amberjack Sandwich, and the rest is, well, history. Over the years, a few things have changed; the gift shop is now where the kitchen was, and most of our neighbors are now 12-stories tall! But inside The Back Porch, things are pretty much the same as they've always been. We're still the best place in Destin for families and friends to get together and enjoy fresh gulf seafood, and we've still got the best view in town.
Best place to eat with or without kids. They have a great play area for the kids and a GREAT Bar for the adults. They are always busy, you may have to wait but it is well worth it! We eat there everytime we are in Destin, in fact we are going there tonight! Yum Yum, can't wait!!
Great view, fabulous food. Be sure to try the garlic smashed potatoes instead of fries! Great for families. Nice beach playground for kids, and a small bar on the beach while you wait for your table. Cool shirts, too!
Excellent food, service, ambiance...and the most beautiful view of the Gulf. Cute little gift shop attached for buying a reminder of your visit. Oh, don't forget to grab a handful of mints on your way out the door not only do they help refresh your breath after the meal they are the best mints you will have ever have.
The food is mediocre, over-priced, and greasy. It's crowded and full of sweaty people. I'll choose elsewhere next time. I especially recommend that you do not take your children here...it's smoky outside and dirty inside.
The Back Porch is the best place for. The amberjack, fried shrimp, scallops and fish was outstanding. The orange cake was also the perfect dessert for the perfect meal. The dining area view is so calming. The entire experience was great and we will be back for more.
This was the first time we went to Back Porch and we went on a recommendation from a friend. I can't say enough about it. It was an almost perfect dining experience. Service staff was awesome, very pleasant and very fast. The atmosphere was great, being right on the beach, very open and airy. The only problem I see with this is that it could be uncomfortable on a hot day. We went in the evening so this wasn't an issue. The food was just superb. It tasted very fresh, was well cooked, well presented and delicious. It is pricey, but I think you pretty much get what you pay for. I highly recommend the calamari and twice-baked potato. Visiting Back Porch will be mandatory every time we visit Destin from here on out.
