Dine and view the Connecticut River from The Back Porch

The Back Porch – a great waterfront restaurant directly on the west bank of the Connecticut River just before you reach the bridge on I-95. Within a mile from the highway, and with equally good view and food, it’s well worth a detour. Casual dress, moderately expensive, altogether a memorable spot.
