    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.

    Salad dressing a little too sweet; Salamon a bit overcooked & dry; steak was fair. Dessert was fair. Food overall - not memorable or standout.

    The food was awesome as well as the service. This was our first time and we were blown away with the quality of the food and the right size portions too. The wait staff couldn't have been better! Very friendly, knowledgeable and eager to help make our experience even better. I would recommend this to friends and we will plan to go again, soon.

    This experience was very disappointing, the last thing I expected was a tough $34.00 porterhouse steak. The service was very good and the ambience wonderful. I don't think that I will return, you can have all the bells and whistles but if the food in not good why come back ?

    My Wife and I always have our special occasion dinners here. Never been disappointed! The food is outstanding, the filet mignon is the best! 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!

    This was a great dining experience. The food, wine, dessert and the service could not have been better. The steaks were cooked to perfection and presentation was exceptional. Our server took her time with us and made great wine suggestions. Dessert was ENORMOUS, enough for four people. We will certainly go back.

    Wonderful service! At first I was disappointed to see the Prawns were not on the menu; that is my all-time favorite dish at Porterhouse. Lucky for me they had a special appetizer that included prawns so they offered to create an entree for me. That made me very happy and my dinner was excellent. Please, Porterhouse, bring back those lovely Prawns!!!

    We recently dined here for our anniversary. We were seated immediately just outside the kitchen door, which was very noisy. After switching to a different table we ordered drinks off of their very nice bar menu. They had a nice wine list as well. Dinner arrived promptly. The scallops were beautifully plated, and were moist and delicious. The black and bleu steak was cooked to perfection and tender. My personal highlight was the horseradish mashed potatoes; you really have to try them! Our server was attentive, but not hovering all evening, and she offered us a free anniversary dessert. The Creme Brulee was delightful! A wonderful evening for both of us, and we will certainly return!

    The french onion soup was a little different this time with less chese that before. Also the porterhouse had some tough and chewy areas on it. The rib eye and creme brulet was excellent and so was the service.

    Our family gathered to celebrate my mother's 75th birthday and it was a treat for all of us. The server was gracious and helpful, the food was outstanding. I had the petite filet with 'the works', sauteed onions, mushrooms and bearnaise sauce, enough to share. They also brought a complimentary cake out after dinner, large enough for eight to share.

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    We (4) came here for our birthday bash (3/4 have birthdays in July). Each year some one else plans it. This was my turn and I chose Porterhouse because I'd been here once before and loved it. As expected, the wait person, Bonnie, was a delight and catered to our every wish. My finicky sister-in-law ordered a petite filet mignon medium - it came out medium rare and was sent back for more cooking (twice) until it was to her liking. She should have ordered it well done, so I can't fault Porterhouse! We all thought the steaks were excellent and sides good too. As an added bonus, we were presented with a complimentary cake for dessert to celebrate the birthdays. Ambience is terrific here. A perfect meal.

    Porterhouse was a perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was very attentive, friendly and professional, the food was delicious with many options of how to combine steak and seafood for the perfect meal. I appreciate that the salad and side is included in the meal, unlike many other fine dining places where everything is ala carte. My only suggestion (very minor) is that the plating/presentation could use a little work. Thank you for a great experience!

    Have been there many times. Always request the same thing. They never read the reservation till you walk in the door. Then they argue with you when you point it out. We love the food but the host staff is never friendly. The wait staff is generally very good. We will use up what we have left for gift cards and then wont return.

    Horrible
    Dined on 7/22/2014
    This was my first visit and chose my birthday to go. Service was horrible! We waited 10 minutes just to get water. We brought our 10 year old son and they only had one kids meal. ONLY ONE?!?!? We got our food and the steaks were awful. No flavor at all. My sons meal consisted of a corn dog, garlic toast and a Jello pudding cup. They didn't even bother to hid the fact it was a jello pudding cup because all they did was remove the lid and add whipped cream. How tacky! The waitress was consistently not available. Once my husband copped an attitude, she did the same. Not cool! We spent $90 and had the worst meal and experience ever. Way to ruin my birthday!

    Then filet of mignon was excellent along with the baked potatoe, but the mashed potaoes with bacon I did not care for because their was to many chunks of fatty bacon , two people that had the potaoes had the same view. The service was good, and the apmostphere was also nice,
