Front Porch Restaurant is all new!!!


bg_wrapperIf you haven’t been to the newly renovated Front Porch Restaurant, you are in for a surprise. Owner Wayne Wescot has knocked out the wall between the restaurant and the store next door, and has more than doubled the seating capacity. The Front Porch, both before and now is a wonderful place, but the restaurant always felt cramped and crowed. Not any more.

The new space has been given a complete makeover. The ceilings and floors are covered in worn pine, the wall painted a soft blue, and nautical touches abound. There are oversize stunningly beautiful black leather booths, and the lighting is made to look like portholes. The feeling is akin to being on the deck of a ship, except that it’s not raining and a fire is burning in the fireplace.

The food has some surprises, too!!

The menu has been heavily revamped by the new chef and includes appetizers such as Crispy Duck Spring rolls, Oysters on the half shell and creamy Vidalia Onion soup. Interesting salads such as Beets and Balsamic, as well as the standard Garden and Ceasar salads are also available.

Main courses include a variety of Flatbreads, Rissotto of the Day, Chicken Penne, Carab and Linguini, pan-seared salmon and Black and Blue Ahi Tuna.

Many of the staff have returned from last year, and the service is excellent. Put that together with the new surroundings, and a chef with a great technique and good ideas, and you have the mmakings of a legend. Of course, it already was a legend!!!
