    We were seated in front of the singer and it was so loud that we couldn't carry on a conversation at our table. The food was just OK. One meal was luke warm. Maybe it would be better during the week. The bar only had beer and wine.

    Enjoyable place to dine. Dinner party had a mix of different meals ranging from Salmon Cakes, Petit Filet and hamburgers. The burgers were good, espicially the blackened burger. The 4 ounce petit sirloin is just that, petit. The blue cheese chip appetitizer was very good. All in all, everyone enjoyed their meals.

    The food was fair for the most part. I ordered a steak well done and it came with blood running out on my plate. The waitress did not come back to see if we needed anything else until the meal was over. There was only two other people in the place so there was no reason for her not to check on us. They did take my steak off the bill, but I left hungry.

    Morrili
    Dined on 3/27/2012
    The house salad was delicious as were the loaded baked potatoes and filets that my husband and I ordered. However, one of the cuts of beef had a very tough portion. We were pleased to see bananas foster on the menu and the two of us split one order for dessert. It was delicious and big enough to share. One thing that drew us to this restaurant was advertising that they feature wines from one of our favorite local wineries (Blackstock) but we were disappointed that they only had one in stock.

    Pros: High quality steaks, perfectly cooked ; smaller portion size options available; creative menu; generally fine preparation; pleasant rustic ambience Cons: Server was completely unable to answer questions about dishes on the menu or local brews on the (unprinted) beer menu; salad was served family style and came heavily dressed with no choice of dressing type. Mixed blessings: Mussel appetizer was very tasty, but completely different from menu description (Cajun/ tomato/sausage broth vs. lemon /garlic/wine) which could be a problem for those who don't like spicy food; fried green tomato appetizer was creative but huge and heavy with too much goat cheese.

  • Great Valentine's Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/14/2012
    Once again, Porter House proves that the staff knows what they're doing. My wife and I went there for Valentine's Day. No fixed overpriced menu's, just the same great food they always have. We weren't looking for super romantic, just good food in a reasonably quiet atmosphere. We each had a Bourbon Sirloin, and they were outstanding. Cooked exactly to order, and the sauce is very good. Salads come family style, and they're good. They have a tiny bit of pepper jack cheese crumbled in, which gives them a unique kick. The bread, which is crusty, fresh and hot, comes with a compound garlic butter that's great. Don't go looking for a bar-it's beer and wine only there.

    We enjoyed a Christamas Eve dinner that will be an unforgettable experience. The atmosphere was special with Christmas lights and live music. The steak and crabmeat special was excellent and the service was first rate! It will be hard to beat the atmosphere of Dahlonega on Christmas Eve. We will be back during the new year and next Christmas Eve.

    We loved our dinner here. We were out for a romantic dinner w/o the kids, which doesn't happen very often. The tables for two are a bit on the crowded side - there was someone RIGHT behind me. Other than that, the service was good, the wine was decent, and the food was wonderful. We had the appetizer special ~ goat cheese w/ crostini; the bread and salad served w/ every meal were yummy; I had the pecan crusted trout w/ cheese grits, and my husband had the horseradish steak with mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious and since we're local, we'll definitely be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/4/2011
    This restaurant came highly recommended however we found it to be expensively mediocre. Items were well over-priced with food that was just so-so. Beef tips were tough as nails with a good bit of un-chewable cartilage left in. Bourbon chicken had good taste but small portion (one half of breast). Salad was most notable. Evening dining with a solo guitarist and banjo was too loud to enjoy table conversation. Staff unable to accommodate change. Reservations made two months in advance yet our group celebrating a special occasion was seated right next to guitarist, the door and all the in/out traffic.

    This was our first visit to The Porter House and we were absolutely blown away!! The ambiance was fantastic, (perfect for either a romantic dinner or a social gathering with friends), the food was excellent and our server Kyle was absolutely wonderful. He was knowledgeable pertaining to the wine selection and was quick to offer tastes before we selected a wine. We will definitely visit again and certainly will be recommending this restaurant to anyone looking for a great place to sit down and relax with a bottle of wine and friends.

    Our visit to Porter House was awful. The service was abysmal, the food was slow (lunch took us nearly 2hrs) to come and when it did come was cold, lacking in quality, and portion sizes were small (I have seen kid menu burgers better looking than the ones we got). They ran out of every imported beer except one. To add to our problems my father had stomach issues. Please avoid this restaurant and dine elsewhere.

    We met some friends here for lunch before touring a local winery. Because Dahlonega is a 'touristy' town, we expected over-inflated meal prices. We were very surprised to walk into this nice, comfortable, and friendly restaurant and to see that lunch prices were well under $10.00. The food was delicious . . . I really enjoyed my blackened salmon sandwich. The fries, in my opinion, were a bit too greasy and needed more salt or seasoning. Other than that, everything was perfect. Very friendly wait-staff, quick with refills. We enjoyed our time here!

It was quite busy when we arrived, but thanks to our reservation we were seated in minutes. There was a live performer and the ambience was great. Def.
