We enjoy sitting outside to eat but the food and service wasn't much. Everything we had was cold, even the soup and double baked potato one person ordered. It took a long time to get what was mostly sandwiches and nothing was tasty enough to...More

We LOVE Proffitt's Porch! The sandwiches are made on thin Hoagie-type bread. They are really, really good! They come in whole or half sizes. We usually order a whole and split it: my husband gets a cup of red beans and rice while I get...More

Very casual place out in the woods by the water. Not a wide variety of menu choices, but what they do, they do well. The red beans & rice and seafood gumbo were very good and the hot seafood sandwich was awesome. The crusty French...More
