I have yet to come here and have a bad experience. The staff is always super friendly and laid back. The food is always on point. The barbacoa tacos were delicious. My friend loved the chicken parmesan.


Great outdoor seating. The food was good. I had sweet potato fries but they were too sweet. They put a sugary topping on them. Shrimp and grits are great and salad is very good.

Great service, food and outdoor seating. The app with sausage and cheese curds are where it’s at. Stick to the southern cuisine and you can’t go wrong.

Literally the best restaurant in the area hands down. From appetizers to pizza, sandwiches, it's all about quality and great service here.Don't miss out on the killer happy hour at the bar. Half price bottles of wine , makes it a fun place to end the work day.Parking: Great parking available all around the restaurant


Shrimp n grits in red eye gravy. Flavorful with a bit of spicy.

The Front Porch in Hoover AL is awesome! Friendly staff, amazing food, atmosphere, and music to enjoy while you dine. Food came out really quick too! I had the Stacked Pork, sweet tea and Bread pudding for dessert! It was amazing!! Thanks to Ellie for the recommendations! Had a great time trying someplace new!

This is a hidden gem - absolutely worth the drive. We came her with a group for dinner. We were visiting Alabama froM Texas. We were a little worried about the drive but once we got there we quickly realized it was well worth it. Great selections on the menu. The bacon wrapped sausage was soooo delicious. I ordered the chicken and it was amazing. Decent drink selection as well. Perfect spot for dinner. Love the atmosphere. Highly recommend.

This is a nice spot in a hip part of town. It is in a small residential area with many of the residents rolling around in golf carts. They have an outdoor patio, a decent sized indoor dining area and bar seating with a full bar, signature cocktails, beer and wine. They have music playing out on the patio and in the dining area and you will find a couple of televisions over the bar and in the dining area as well. The staff there is very friendly and helpful here. I decided to sit outside on the patio since it was a a very nice day and the dining room was full anyway. They have some unique and exotic items on their menu like bacon wrapped sausage. They serve sandwiches, burgers, wings, wraps, steak, salad, fish, and pizza. They also have a large selection of draft, craft beers and wine. You may fine a food special here and they offer catering. I ordered the Cowboy Burger with a side of onion rings. It took about 10 minutes for me to get my food and it was warm and fresh. The onion rings were pretty good and had a different flavor to them. The burger was not the best that I have had, but it was good as well and had a grilled taste to it. I got a lot of onion rings and my meal was very filling. I ate it all and was full when I left. I got one of their cocktails to wash down my food, the Blackberry Lemonade. It was savory and thirst quenching. Very good. There is limited free street parking available. It has a 2 hour limit and I did not have any difficulty finding a spot. This restaurant has a cool/hip/casual vibe. I really enjoyed my dinner here. It was very low key. The service was awesome and the food was good. I would definitely come back here and recommend this joint.

Hamburger was very good. Desserts were the best part of the meal- Carmel Brownie is a must have!!! Service was slow but I can overlook when they are trying/make sure you're not in a hurry and you will be fine.

We finally got a chance to try this restaurant and had a flyer for a free appetizer with no expiration date which they honored even though we had it for a while. The chips and queso was very good. Our drinks arrived at the table quickly and fast as if you were seated at the bar. I ordered the shrimp and grits and my wife ordered the chef salad. We had enough time to finish the appetizer before our entrees arrived. The Shrimp & grits was outstanding. I thought the dish needed just a little more grits but I am probably being too critical. My wife’s chef salad was fresh and delicious and what she didn’t eat for dinner was my lunch the following day. Our side order of sweet potato fries was awesome! It has been a long time since we’ve tasted sweet potato fries this good. For dessert the scoop of ice cream with chocolate and caramel was generously applied. It was like my wife snuck into the kitchen and made it herself. The staff is super friendly and attentive. Our server Elle was great and it is clear why this restaurant is a favorite hangout of the locals. We sat out on the patio which is dog friendly. We are definitely looking forward to returning here in the near future.
