Fodor's Expert Review Back Porch Restaurant and Wine Bar
What looks like a cozy little cottage in the woods actually serves stellar seafood like crab cakes and fresh diver sea scallops. There are also vegetarian options on the menu as well as meat-based dishes like a pecan-crusted chicken breast in bourbon sauce. Enjoy your meal indoors or on a screened porch. The wine bar has a respectable wine list. If you need picnic fare, the Back Porch Lunchbox, just a block away on North Carolina Highway 12, has sandwiches, snacks, and sweets to go.
