The North Carolina Coast Restaurants

Back Porch Restaurant

Updated 10/12/2012

Fodor's Review

At what looks like a cozy little cottage in the woods, seafood stars, whether it's crab beignets or cream and butter baked scallops. Find notable beef, chicken, and vegetarian dishes, including pecan-crusted chicken breast in bourbon sauce and spinach and chick pea curry over rice. You have the choice of enjoying your meal indoors or on a screened porch. The wine bar has a respectable wine list. The Back Porch Lunchbox, just a block away on Hwy. 12, offers sandwiches, snacks, and sweets to go.

A GREAT place to eat!

I guess the Back Porch must have changed hands or management or something since that review from August of last year. My fiancee and I ate there at the beginning of June during a trip to Ocracoke, and a couple weeks later when we went back to the Outer Banks with what turned out to be a few extra vacation days, we made a point of going BACK to Ocracoke just to eat at the Back Porch. The food was incredible. Very high end, well presented, but without

being too hoity-toity or snooty. And our server was the greatest! VERY knowledgeable about the food and wines. Second trip was even better except that the waitress from the first time wasn't around. Second waitress was great also, but the fist one was just too cool. You know the type. That rare person who's not just good at it, but it's almost like it's her calling. Oh, and the bread IS fresh-baked. Again, not sure what was up in August, but things have changed. No ugly pink unicorn either. I'd write more, but my mouth is already watering and it'll be at least 6 months before I get a chance to go back, so I don't want to torture myself going on and on about how great it is.
