A few weeks ago I was driving home and I spotted a new restaurant called The Porch. From the outside it looked like a really cool place to grab a bite to eat. I figured it would be a fun new place to go!

I found their Facebook page and discovered their menu full of delicious sounding choices, at extremely reasonable prices. The reviews on the Facebook page were all great, so I knew I had to try this new place! I went with my dad and brother for dinner Thursday night.
When you first walk in you go down this long walkway with twinkling lights strung above. The restaurant is split into two sections with a bar in the middle. One side is indoor the other is patio (but still covered). The menu boast a variety of different choices, there is something for everybody. The environment of the restaurant is very upbeat but also laid back. The crowd is very young, I think it will be a great place for the Rollins crowd.
I chose their Power Hour Salad, a mixture of spinach, kale, seasonal fruits (strawberries and blueberries), sunflower seeds, chicken, and acai balsamic dressing. It was a great salad! Honestly, I didn’t even use the dressing, the fruit added just enough sweetness to the salad. My brother and dad split the Big Dipper (their take on the French Dip)…another good choice. Watching the food come out from the kitchen I have to say my next trip will include a burger!
So if you find yourself in the Winter Park area looking for a low key (not too expensive) place to eat dinner I definitely recommend The Porch! Like I said, they have something for everyone, including lots of sports on many tvs for the guys, and the outside atmosphere is always good for kids. Check out their menu on their Facebook Page!
