About
The Back Porch Seafood and Oyster House has been serving Gulf seafood, raw oysters and ice cold beer since 1974. We were the first to serve chargrilled Amberjack along the Gulf Coast. Stop by The Back Porch for a great meal, fantastic Gulf views and an unpretentious atmosphere that will take you back in time. We hope to see you soon!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We just ate at the Back Porch PCB and it was great. The food was excellent the best fried shrimp and best crab claws we have had on this trip. Our server was Cas from Jamaica. She was awesome. She was very friendly and kept...our drink glasses full. If you go there, ask for her as your sever and you won’t be disappointed.More

This place is located across for a very popular place, but will have you in and out while others are still on the waitlist for the other place😂 Great food and portions are huge, we had appetizers and it was a meal in itself. Staff...is very friendly and accommodating!More

We eat here on every visit to PCB. The Admiral’s Feast is a favorite of ours and my husband and I share it and have some to take home. Carley Hankins was our server this trip and was very attentive.

Flavorless Experience Though the server was very kind , the food was subpar. I ordered a cheeseburger and it was a tasteless concoction of beef with a dry bun. The star of the cheeseburger is the meat and this place misses the mark. When I...told the waitress to advise the chef that the burger was devoid of flavor, they made no effort to make it right. We won’t be back. If you want a a dining experience, this place isn’t it.More

This is our second trip to this restaurant on a four night stay. The food is excellent, and the service is fabulous. Today we had a relatively new waiter, Trey. G. He was attentive and did a marvelous job. I had the grouper back porch...and it was amazing. We also had the firecracker shrimp as an appetizer. Crispy and good. I honestly could’ve taken it a little spicier, but certainly would be something to order again. There were a lot of shrimp on the appetizerMore

We drove in from Oneonta, Alabama and went straight to The Back Porch! It was the Friday before Memorial Day and we walked right in. We sat in the patio and the food, atmosphere and our server, Trey G, were all excellent!!! I had grilled...shrimp and scallops and my husband had grilled fish. We highly recommend The Back Porch!More

We were a party of 4. Came in for a late lunch. 3 of us had fish sandwiches and 1 had a fish basket. The fries were decent and the Cole slaw was good, decent service. The rest of the meal was something like you...may get at Captain Ds. This is definitely not one of the top seafood places in PCB.More

Plenty of food . Ordered stuffed shrimp and twice baked potato.. large portion . Also ordered crab cake sandwich.. good . Recommend the smoked tuna dip as appetizer . Side salads are big enough for 2 .. and if you order in addition to entrees...plus the tuna dip you’ll be carting it home . The tuna actually comes in a bed of lettuce that is comparable to a salad (plus crackers). Server was great .More

I’m not sure. It didn’t look run down by any means. It’s one of the larger restaurants at Pier Park right across from the beach
