Diner Reviews
  • "This steakhouse beats the "famous" ones. Everything is included with the meal, great salads, bread, vegetables and potato. Not ala carte add ons. The bar offers a generous pour and the staff is very friendly. Great selection of sizes to the steaks as well; my daughter and I always order from the small plates page and have always had enough (probably because of the generous sides)"

  • "The quality of the food and the excellence of its preparation set Porterhouse apart from other restaurants. The atmosphere tells you that this is not a predictable chain restaurant experience. The servers are well trained and have high standards of attentiveness. This is my favorite place to eat."

  • "It would've been nice to have table cloths, I asked for a quiet table so we could reflect on our years together.. and were seated next to a table of 10. Not to romantic! Ambiance is dated."

  • "We ate at the Porterhouse Steak & Seafood restaurant (Little Canada, MN) to celebrate our anniversary. Pricey -- but we decided we had never had a better steak dinner! We appreciated the quiet atmosphere and great service. We mentioned it was our anniversary and to our surprise we were given a free dessert (delicious cake) to celebrate. All in all, a wonderful evening. We will go again and will recommend the Porterhouse to anyone who asks!"

  • "Food was great! I've always liked going to Porterhouse, but I think I will pick a different evening when it is not so incredibly busy and noisy. The waiter, Ken, seemed a bit overwhelmed and distracted at times."

  • "My son remarked that this was the best steak he had ever had and he said it more than once. He has trveled the world so I consider that huge compliment to the chef. Prices are a little high but well worth it. Be sure to make reservation as they are booked every night of the week."

  • "My wife and I visit here about once a month. Food was a little off this visit but still good. I had a blackened ribeye that was not seasoned like they had been in the past but still very good"

  • "It was our first time to Porterhouse after hearing great comments about it for several years. We were very impressed with our food and service. Everything was awesome, especially the steak and spinach salad! Then to top it all off, we received a delicious cake for our anniversary. We can't wait to go back again! The only suggestion we would have is to dim the lights a bit in the evening."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Our only complaint really was that it was suggested we order "medium plus" if we wanted slightly pink on our steaks, and both came more medium, almost medium rare. You never want to send a steak back to the kitchen, so we ate what we could and took the rest home to make hash. This was our 3rd visit and felt not the best, we probably won't be back for awhile. The service and food was at best, mediocre."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "If you're in the mood for a quiet evening with great food and a classic ambience, Porterhouse is for you. Its not concerned with contemporary/modern decor or minuscule portions plated expertly to look like a piece of art, but it is serious about great food - from the steak to the seafood to the sides, the portions are generous and cooked expertly. It's also located in a small suburb outside of Saint Paul right off the highway so there is ample parking and it's easy to find!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "The best place for steak and seafood in town. Better than Jax and it is more reasonably priced. We had the seafood. Salmon and walleye and it was delicious (but the steak is great too). Great wait staff (we love Julie and Carrie the best) and the cook brings the food to your table. Sometimes it can get loud, especially if they have a large party (which, by the way the place is not set up for, they should NOT allow large groups in this very small restaurant)."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Such a great meal at a great restaurant. The service is great and the food exceeds expectations. You've go to try the Smokehouse Shrimp - huge shrimp wrapped in perfectly cooked bacon and covered in tangy barbeque sauce. The black & blue ribeye is also out of this world. Drinks are huge and the desserts look humungous! (I've never had room for dessert!). "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "The Porterhouse never fails to meet up to our expectations. We'll miss this place when we retire in August of this year, but will make sure to stop by when we're in town."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Service was great as usual. My husband's filet was not medium as ordered. It was rare. Had to send back. This was unusual from other times we have dined there. Loved the free desert for our anniversary."

  • "We have been to Porterhouse for quite a few occasions, and can't think of a nicer way to spend our Anniversary. The food is always fantastic, the service is wonderful and the restaurant is accessible with free parking. We feel like royalty when we dine here."

  • "Our friends chose this restaurant because of a birthday celebration and also to use a gift card they'd received. We found it to be overpriced for the quality of the food. Nothing in any of the courses was outstanding. The bread was just bread, nothing special about the taste, nothing special about the butter served with it. The salads were again nothing special. I had the walleye and baked potato. Again, nothing special about either one. In fact, I found 3 bones in the walleye. One gentlemen's steak was ordered med rare and he found it over cooked. There was a complimentary birthday cake, which was a nice touch. Overall, it was just a disappointment because we've always heard good things about it. "

  • "Our first trip to Porterhouse was to celebrate a special occasion. The food and service was exceptional. The only downside was being seated at a table with a cold draft (HVAC type draft rather than a draft from a keg)."
