The Back Porch
Food & Drink

What started as a little beach shack serving seafood and oysters with a view has turned into a beachfront dining destination, serving delicious Gulf Seafood in a laid back and casual setting.

They are known for inventing the chargrilled Amberjack fish sandwich, and popularizing this not popular fish in the Gulf. Or try one of the other fish sandwiches like snapper, grouper or fried oyster. House specialities include Grouper Destin grilled and topped with shrimp, porch crab cakes, or crab stuffed Gulf shrimp. If you are hungry and to sure what to order try the Fisherman’s trio with Gulf grouper, Amberjack and yellowfin tuna!

At the Back Porch the oyster menu includes fried oysters, back porch style topped with cheese and crab, and of course oysters on the half shell.
