You don’t go to the Back Porch for awesome food. You don’t even really go to the Back Porch for average food. It’s just about the view. It signifies salty sea air, the beginning of a no worries vacation and eating while gazing at the ocean. I think I might have wrecked the Back Porch last year – I was really irritated with their crappy seafood nachos and the horrible, cranky service.
Just to be clear, there ARE a few menu items that can be delicious. But, I don’t always feel like shelling out $30 for something that should be half that. I have my pride and all. 😉 Well, sometimes.
Our service WAS awesome this time. Back Porch also redid the whole entrance and gift shop area. Makes for a more pleasant waiting/exiting area.
I love the Back Porch day because it means our best friends have arrived in Paradise!
Time to celebrate with a cocktail – Key Lime Freeze
My ONE redeeming factor of the Back Porch and it wasn’t as good this time. Not very lime-y.
Like always – I’ll post food pics and mine will be last.
My son’s – what 14-year-old boy doesn’t want and/or love cheese sticks?
Blackened Amberjack Sandwich
Okay – and the next picture is supposed to be mine. Either I had a major fail and didn’t take a picture OR my camera was just randomly deleting things. I’m going with the option that’s NOT my fault.
I got the Angry Amberjack sandwich – the description is Spicy Fried Amberjack with cheddar cheese. Well, I got the Fried Amberjack sandwich but the spice came from some random, sort of like buffalo sauce but not really slathered on top. So very off-putting. It’s too bad because the fish part was good – the sauce just sent it spiralling into gross-land.
I’m still not in love with the Back Porch. It serves its purpose and is what it is.
