BBQ Review: Front Porch BBQ & Seafood

Front Porch Barbecue and Seafood – Hattiesburg, MS 

Front Porch Barbecue and Seafood is nestled in a development just off of highway 59 in Hattiesburg, MS. It’s easily seen when driving on the highway. The establishment is clean and well designed. It’s a buffet style so you will have access to more of whatever tickles your fancy.  

 The atmosphere is very friendly. I’m a huge fan of the meat, so I enjoyed the ribs having their own special location in the restaurant with a server dedicated to helping you find the exact piece you wanted. The sample that I tasted was actually quite tasty, but a bit dry. Honestly, that’s not often achieved so that’s a check in the plus column itself. If I had to guess, I’d say these particular ribs had been out for a bit. I imagine with the right timing, one could acquire a stellar version of the same entrée.  


I tried the sausage as well, but it didn’t quite cut it for me. It was good, but it just seemed like something I would get from the store. I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t anything to write home about.  

Now, before this comes across as negative, let me tell you about the beef brisket. If I had tried nothing else, this would have been worth the visit. The brisket is sliced and melt-in-your-mouth tender. Truly, this is the golden dish at Front Porch Barbecue. It was tender and savory. Once it was gone I instantly wanted more. My only caveat would be that it didn’t have the famous brisket “bark” on it with some crunch. However, I’d go back again regardless.  


Along with the brisket, I have to highlight the side dishes. There is everything from mashed potatoes and gravy to a full salad bar. I stuck with the turnip greens and the sweet potato casserole. Each sample was fantastic. I like my sweet potato casserole a little lumpy so I’ve got something to chew. This offering delivered that in spades.  


If you’re looking for great value and great food, Front Porch Barbecue can deliver. I wouldn’t say it’s the finest barbecue I’ve ever had because overall it lacked that “X” factor. However, it’s absolutely worth a once a week visit. Give it a shot. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
