Diner Reviews
  • "I would make a return visit, my husband happened to get a bad cut of meat - we did have the Porterhouse. His cut did have a fair amount of gristle and the chef accommodated us on the bill and compensated us with a generous piece of chocolate cake. Delicious Overall it was very good and the service was excellent. I was just unfortunate the he received a bad cut of meat."

  • "My husband and I dined here for our 34th wedding anniversary. We had received a gift certificate and that's why we ate at this restaurant. The service was good. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was good. We felt the price was high. We may eat here again but only for a special occasion. The only negative is that I don't think the atmosphere is anything special. It's a nice restaurant, but for the prices I would expect more ambience. The waiting area was nice--large comfortable chairs. We sat in a booth which was fine but I also noticed there was a tear in the seat on my side which was a little tacky. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant. I would say it's a good place to eat but nothing exceptional."

  • "Food as fantastic as the knowledgeable, attentive staff. My guest was a first timer - was very impressed & pleased with choice of this restaurant for our special occasion celebration. Not a "regular" like I'd LIKE to be, the food has always been prepared as ordered and DELICIOUS, and every visit the entire staff has been professional, friendly & warm - even when just stopping in to purchase gift certificates."

  • "My husband and I love dining at the Porterhouse. We go there for every special occasion. Recently we went there for my husbands birthday. We started with their sinful Spinach Artichoke dip. The best I have had! I had their prawns and my husband always get the filet mignon. I have never been disappointed with a meal yet. From the outside you would expect an average steak place, but go inside and have a great meal! We highly recommend the Porterhouse for any occasion!!!!!!"

  • "This is a good place to eat!!! The steak was excellent and the service was fantastic. We were looking for a place closer to work for convenience and had several choices. Royal Oak is closed (Too bad) and Lake Elmo Inn is too far away so we took a chance and went to the Porterhouse. I am glad we did. This is a small place but the food makes-up for it. We will be returning."

  • "Porterhouse never disappoints. The Black and Bleu Ribeye is the the best Ribeye I've ever had. Our server was very polite and checked up on us to make sure everything was ok. I highly recommend a visit to Porterhouse."

  • "This was our first visit to Porterhouse. It is is usually booked up when we want to go, but Monday we got right in. The higher end supper club feel comes from the wood and booths. The service was excellent and the food very good. The filets were melt-in your mouth and the spinach salad a pleasant surprise. We will go back again!"

  • "We really don't feel we could recommend this restaurant. My filet was tough and tasted funny. It was dry on the outer edges and raw in the middle. The asparagus was good, but kind of greasy. My companion's NY strip was very tough though more favorable than the filet. We sat with nearly empty water glasses which went unnoticed by our server, who was pleasant but inattentive. We also felt the prices were high for the poor quality beef."

  • "As a first timer for this restaurant, I was not impressed. Even with reservations and arriving prior to our scheduled time, we still had to wait for our table when many other people were sat before us. We were told that they were waiting for our booth to open, but for some reason others had booths ready for them. Our waitress was excellent. She was very personable and prompt. For going to a higher end restaurant, we expected a higher end food. I felt I would have received a better value for my money at Outback. My food was lukewarm at best. The steak had little flavor. Unfortunately, I will not be returning to this restaurant."

  • "We've been to Porterhouse several times and our food never disappoints. However, we've had the same server a few times in a row and will be requesting a different one next time as she is not friendly, doesn't introduce herself, say thank or "have a good night" or anything. Very curt and that kind of ruins it for us as service is almost as important as quality of food in our opinion."

  • "First table we were given was in the bar and very small. Not enough room to sit across from each other without one of us being stuck in a high traffic area. We requested to be moved and managed to get a two person booth in the main restaurant. Appetizer was excellent. My dinner was also very good, but my husbands steak was rare when he had asked for medium. After an initial "is everything okay" from the waitress while we were putting the sides on our plates we didn't see her again until the meal was over. No water glass replenishment was ever received or offered. My husband ate the steak as presented but would have enjoyed it more had it been cooked to medium. We were told we could have sent it back to be cooked more, but too late."

  • "Amazing food, wonderful, attentive staff, never lets us down. Absolutely reliable, consistent in everything they do."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Quality of the steaks we had, blackened ribeye and filet mignon, just slightly below the boutique steak places at 2/3 the price. Monstrous portions, so don't upgrade to a larger size unless you're going to share. Prompt, friendly service but not overly attentive. Plan on spending $100 for two with a glass of wine, no appetizers, and tip."

  • "Friends have been telling us about this place for years - we are glad we finally went! Attentive & friendly staff, hot delicious food - try your steak "Philly style" - very flavorful and tender steak! Sauteed onions made a perfect topping! No wonder I always see cars in their parking lot! Try it out!"

  • "I have to say the service and professionalism was wonderful and fantastic, the food a little overrated and over priced for what we received. Maybe it would have been a better experience with just appetizers sitting at the bar top. We were looking forward to our experience, however the quality of food didn't match the price, while celebrating a milestone in our lives it was disappointing. But as I said the service was absolutely wonderful."

  • "Every time I go, it is outstanding! I usually have the Filet and Walleye combo and is delicious. This is the BEST pan fried walleye I've ever had and that is saying a lot since I grew up spending summers and fishing on Mille Lacs lake! Porterhouse also has a very good French Onion soup, and the Spinich and Artichoke dip is one of the best I've ever had. They also have fresh fish specials with the Chefs special sauces which are awesome as well. Great place to celebrate a bday, anniversary etc. They have a complementary house cake that is not overly rich but is soooooo awesome. It is a cake with fresh whipped cream all over it drizzled with chocolate. Really good. End with a perfectly made Grasshopper or Brandy Alexander.... yum!! A++++"

  • "We have been to Porterhouse Steak and Seafood in Little Canada MANY times and this was the worse dinner we have had. New chef?!?!? The baked potato was baked to a crisp, hardly anything left in it and one dinner was suppose to be a ribeye, but was more like a New York Strip. After inquiring, we found out that we were served the end cut of a ribeye, which indeed is closer to the New York Strip, so it's texture and taste was more of a New York Strip - very disappointing. We have recommended this restaurant many times to people, but now I'm now so sure."

  • "I feel a bit boring because I always say the same thing about the Porterhouse. ALWAYS an outstanding meal, everything is so good. Service is outstanding, we all love this restaurant. As they say, if it ain't broken, don't fix it. They have this business down to a science and its absolutely one of the best. A+++++++ on everything. Keep up the great job. YOU NEED TO ADD MORE CHARACTERS TO THE AREA WE WRITE IN DIRECTLY TO THE RESTAURANT. WHAT YOU CURRENTLY HAVE IS RIDICULOUSLY LOW. WE HARDLY CAN WRITE TWO LINES TO THEM."
