As reported in the NFW Daily News, the hour-long television program, which will be broadcast at 9 p.m, will take a look inside the kitchen and dining room of the Destin location of Back Porch Seafood and Oyster House along with other seafood locations across the nation.
Horton and Anthony Doria, executive chef, both agreed they couldn’t divulge on any spoilers, but Horton said the show would “highlight the exciting aspects of this establishment.”
A favorite with the locals since 1974, The Back Porch Seafood & Oyster House in Destin got started in a small A-frame building on the beach (pictured above). We instantly made a name for ourselves by serving delicious Gulf seafood with the best Gulf views. A few years later, we invented the Amberjack sandwich, and the rest is history.
The Back Porch in Destin was the first restaurant along the Gulf Coast to serve its customers Chargrilled Amberjack. Back in the early eighties, General Henry Cobb wanted to serve his customers something unique, so he went to the local boat captains and asked them for their opinions. They told him that the locally caught Amberjack was a really good tasting fish, but no one was trying to catch them for restaurants because Grouper and Snapper were so popular. The General struck a deal with a few local boat captains and was the first to serve Chargrilled Amberjack to his guests at the Back Porch.
