The Back Porch – Destin FL

The Back Porch is an overall great pick when you’re in the mood for some great seafood in the Destin FL area. The view on the outside deck is 100% amazing, so be sure to bring your sunglasses if it’s sunny! It wasn’t very busy on the Sunday we chose to go, and my wife and I were seated quickly to a nice 4 top outside on the deck, literally next to the beach. Talk about a great seat and a great view!

We decided to check out the Back Porch in Destin in the off-season, which is likely a good idea, as I am sure it will get busy during peak season. It was a sunny, 70 degree day and we were quickly welcomed and seated on the, well, back porch area with the amazing view.

Our waiter was nice but a little busy as it appeared there were only two working the entire outside seating space. Nonetheless, he was nice and took our order. We had to try the Back Porch Oysters (not pictured, sorry) and they were great, with some cheese and crab on top. We also got the Crab & Shrimp Salad, which was ok, nothing special, but tasted good.

Our overall take on The Back porch in Destin is it’s a great seafood place in Destin. A little overpriced, but it is in a very busy tourist area, the same as many of the area restaurants. Our score for The Back Porch is a 7 out of 10. They get extra credit for the amazing view if you are able to get an outside seat!
