The Front Porch

An autumn evening in Ogunquit.

One of the few places to go for a great dinner and entertainment in Ogunquit (in November) is The Front Porch right in the village.

The building used to be a pharmacy.  Now it's a restaurant/cafe, bar/lounge and piano bar.  The ground floor houses the cafe and bar and upstairs is the piano bar/lounge where they have live entertainment.  Khris Francis usually performs and he is very funny and raunchy.

The menu is covered in cork and has a great logo.

The dining room is quite cozy and filled with autumnal ambience.

(Spring rolls)

We started with some spring rolls.  Very tasty!

(Salmon with chopped salad)

I had the salmon salad.  The salmon was well seasoned and it was a huge portion.

(Trout and lobster croquettes with cauliflower gratin)

Neil had a decadent version of fish and chips made with trout served with cauliflower gratin and lobster croquettes.

(Lobster croquettes)

The lobster croquettes was something else!  New Englanders seem to like their seafood fried and battered.
