    We have never been disappointed with any of our choices at Porterhouse & always look forward to going there. We are only in town for half the year so don't get there as often as we'd like.

    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.

    I rated the ambiance a 2 because its incredibly dark which made reading the glossy menu very difficult. Good thing my cell phone had a flashlight function. We started with the Crab cakes which were very good for Minnesota. The Caesar side salad was good and I was pleased I was offered anchovies. I ordered the "Black 'n Blue Ribeye which was an excellent value. My wife had the regular Ribeye. We both had the small size steaks and ended up taking home the leftovers. We requested the steaks be cooked differently; mine med rare and my wife's rare. They mixed up the order but was quickly corrected. Along with the leftovers, we took home a nice piece of carrot cake which was very good. The wine pour was generous which I appreciated.

    This was our first visit, of many to come. Food was superb and wait staff were exceptional and attentive (but not too attentive). Obviously they only hire experienced waiters. I already have plans to visit on my own even, and grab a seat at the bar for a salad and the wonderful Malbec I enjoyed.

    The food and service has consistently been outstanding. The energy at the restaurant is upbeat, but can be hard to hear your dinner guest when sitting near groups celebrating an important event. The modest size of the restaurant keeps the restaurant full, efficient and neighborhood friendly. Love it.

    The setting was beautiful and the service was personal, warm and friendly. The food was delicious and delivered to the table exactly as ordered. For such nice visual atmosphere, attentive service and tasty food the noise level was quite loud. If there was background music it could not be heard over the sounds of conversation. We had to strain to hear one another. If we return we may request a booth to see if that helps with the noise level.

    We were celebrating our birthday together. The service was attentive. Ordered the filet mignon (pink) and it just melted in our mouths. The spinach salad with the warm bacon dressing was very tasty. Enjoyed the Minnesota Blend wine. Since we were celebrating our birthday we were served a complementary dessert. The cake was light and airy and was not disappointed. We definitely will return when we celebrate another special occasion. $$$

    This is a beautiful restaurant. The food is exceptional with the best steaks we have ever had. We chose this restaurant to celebrate our 46th anniversary because we knew, having been there once before, that we would not be disappointed. When I booked the reservation, I noted we would be celebrating our anniversary. We were disappointed the fireplace was not running...it doesn't put off that much heat but adds ombiance to the setting. I expressed we was there to celebrate our anniversary... I had assumed we would receive a complimentary dessert but we didn't....sad because the class of this restaurant would warrent it. We drove thirty miles just to celebrate at this restaurant....we drive thirty miles to celebrate at this restaurant.

    We have been there several times and the food and service are always fantastic. We had split prawns for an appetizer that were delicious and huge! I ordered parmesan crusted walleye and my husband had a filet that was 1 1/2 inches thick. The table next to us had dessert - carrot cake - that could feed and entire family. Everyone from the hostess, bar staff, waitress, and management were super friendly and checked to make sure everything was perfect. They never disappoint.

It melts in your mouth, and is always cooked to perfection! Fish is great here also, and great service too. You get a discount coupon on your birthday and anniversary if you join their "bread club. Prices are moderate to high, but worth it in my opinion!
