    We arrived on time and the reservation was acknowledged without a delay. The service was what we expected. Prompt and yet not overly intrusive. Food was served adequately and was hot and tasty. It was a special occasion and they treated it as such. We will go again.

    Early to our reservation, we were still promptly seated! Our server was pleasant and injected her personality into her service, so that is always nice. It was a nice way to celebrate a birthday--though, I'm not sure I would go back for just a random night out unless we went to the bar side. The food was very well prepared overall, though the chowder was a bit over-peppered and the bread was though it had been pulled from a fridge (why not take a minute a warm it?). The carrot cake is wonderful, even if they don't make it on-site. The ambiance is warm and inviting, the decor is a bit random. Kind of like this review! :) Overall, a good experience that didn't require a trip downtown.

    Originally we were seated in the open next to a large group, but on our request the waitress and hostess moved us to a booth. The booth allowed for conversation. The waitress was knowledge about wines and the menu making several wonderful suggestions. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

    We chose Porterhouse for a special dinner with our former neighbors who remain good friends. We ordered the stuffed mushroom appetizer, the combination dinner with the 9 oz fillet and scallops, and the creme brulee. The food and service were excellent. We also had a Manhattan and Martini before dinner. The drinks were OK, but seemed a little "watered" down.

    Our anniversary dinner opportunity had us searching for someplace new and special. We had considered Porterhouse for our groom's dinner, a few years ago, but decided on a different locale. This year's visit was going to be a special adventure, but it turned out less than good. We made a reservation, but were made to wait for 30 minutes on arrival. My wife's steak was heavily salted, and her vegetable was oily from cooking oil. My walleye was flavorless and disappointing. Several peripheral things were great, including the creme brulee, carrot cake, bread basket, wine and my frozen drink, but it was the dinner of a quality in keeping with the price we were paying which brought us to Porterhouse. We might stop in for dessert some day.

    They do everything the right way there. Friendly and knowledgeable service. Drinks made by a professional. The meats are from the best cuts, and prepared just like one wants them. The overall experience was excellent, and consistent with our prior experiences for dining there. I hate to label it a "10", but that's what it gets as we have not had a bummer episode there.

    Both of us had the filet (cooked perfectly for each of us) and the garden salad. I had a baked potato and my friend had the bacon-cheese-horseradish mashed potatoes, which were incredibly good and new on the menu. The wait staff was thoughtful, informative and prompt. We will be back!

    We had eaten there one other time. Loved it! This time we enjoyed the ambiance, server was great, apps good Wine flight was also wonderful. Where it lacked this visit was temp of food. Bread was cooler than room temp. Potato on wife's plate barely melted butter - room temp. Her steak was suppose to be med-well. Even said a little thin layer of pink only. But it was red/pink all the way thru. (I liked it!) but she was a little bummed. Mine was suppose to be Medium (how hers turned out) but it was RARE. center was cool and uncooked. Again I was bummed. but we were short on time and didn't want to re-cook it. We will likely go again but for a more expensive night, the food could have been better. (Again first visit we had was perfect!)

    Good food, chilly service. As a regular at Chianti Grill and having eaten a few times at Porterhouse I would recommend either. However, the server made us feel unwelcome with an icy demeanor. Good, friendly service is a huge part of a restaurant's total experience. Food was spot on!

    You don't have to drive downtown Minneapolis/St Paul to find a great restaurant. Porterhouse has better food, better service, and better prices than anyplace downtown. Their staff goes out of their way to ensure everything is perfect. I can't recommend this place enough!

    This is our usual special occasion restaurant and the food didn't disappoint. The ribeye and porterhouse were the steaks of choice by most of our small group. They were prepared exactly as specified and tasted delicious. Several members of the group chose to dine on the walleye, which was also well prepared.

We ordered crab cakes, spinach salad, petite filet mignon and shrimp. Great drinks! Nice ambiance! My husband was given a delicious piece of cake to take home for his birthday as we were too full to eat it at the restaurant! All in all, we had a great time! We will return!!

    One of my favorite steak houses in the entire metro, hands down the best south of the river...and it is 10 minutes from home instead of 45 to downtown. AND it's not an ala carte menu, so you get a fantastic meal for half the price you would pay at the big name steakhouses in Minneapolis. We had the special, bone in buffalo ribeye..it was FANTASTIC!! The martinis are always delightful...especially when Andrea is behind the bar! It can get quite loud when at capacity, so if you want to have a quiet dinner, this is not the place for that. However, my s.o. and I like that everyone around can't hear our conversations, so we enjoy the atmosphere. Be sure to make reservations far in advance....they are very busy due to their delicious food!!

    My Husband and I love this restaurant. The food is absolutely fabulous and delicious! It is very welcoming, the staff goes above and beyond. Very well organized. Very well trained employees that cater to all their customers. We dine at this restaurant for special occasions because of the higher prices. For us it is not just a pop-in stop, reservations are needed. Porterhouse is always, on any day of the week, packed with customers. The ambiance and décor are wonderful and relaxing! It is the best restaurant for us within a short distance from our home.

    Thank you for a lovely evening as we celebrated our 44th anniversary. The Open Table reservation online was the way to go. We arrived with no waiting for our table due to having our reservation ahead of time. Very romantic atmosphere. Our waiter was a fun with an outgoing personality. Was impressed how the entire team of waiters and hosts all worked together to make sure our water glasses were always full and empty used plates were taken away without us even knowing it was happening. As a surprise we received a desert of choice due to our anniversary celebration, all the food was delicious! A very nice experience, thanks to everyone who works at the PorterHouse, we enjoyed our time spent with you!

    We've eaten at Porterhouse Lakeville several times. This time the potato was not as soft or tasty as usual and the "medium" porterhouse steak was not as tender as in the past--more the texture of a sirloin-- (and had a huge bone). My Caesar salad had little to no dressing and was small amount of lettuce, with very little cheese. Our waiter was not warm and friendly like we usually expect.

    We knew going in with a group of 7, it would be pricey. However, the rib eye was mouth watering delicious. Great marbling and seasoned just right. Who needed a steak knife? Maybe more of a place for bringing a client, or a couple on a special occasion rather than a big group. Service was magnificent.
