The Back Porch Story

The Back Porch Saloon opened its doors to customers in 1972 and was run by Al and Dori Lang.  Cincinnati native Jim Schmalz passed by the "Porch" one day and thought to himself what a great location it could be.  Prior to acquiring the Back Porch, Jim owned and operated Barleycorn's in the mid-'70s. 

After years of trying to purchase the "Porch", Jim finally succeeded in 1983.  The original saloon had only 44 seats and a small porch. Today we have grown considerably thanks to all the wonderful friends and customers who have visited the "Porch" over the years.  We appreciate the friendships we've made, the good times shared and the continuing thought they will only grow.

 One thing will never change - we at the Back Porch Saloon are totally committed to giving you the best service, quality, and value we possibly can, in a fun and friendly neighborhood atmosphere!
