Porterhouse Steak and Seafood - Little Canada
Great ExperienceI have been to Porterhouse several times and I am always impressed. The food is incredible at a great price. The staff is friendly and helpful and the service is incredible. It is a great combination of everything I look for in a restaurant and it is a great value. A great price for incredible quality and great quantity of food - there is no way to walk out hungry.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT foodThis is a great special occasion place. Very " old school supper club" vibe. The food was fantastic and the service is top notch. The steak comes with a sharp knife, but you don't need it! The butter knife went right through!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak ever!We love this place, have been twice now and would consider this our favoirite steak house in the Twin Cities!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food, classic ambianceIt was a Thursday night and the restaurant was crowed, we had a reservation for 19h00. The first impression is the decoration which looks very ancient, classic with its wooded decorated wall. I think it goes with the customer which average age was approximately 65 years old. I took the petite filet mignon served with grilled esparagus - perfect cook and match!
My friend took the lobster tail, the presentation was perfect and taste was great.Overall we were satisfied of our visit. Especially for the taste of the food.We would be seeking for a better recent decoration,, but I think this goes with the restaurant and its reputation, so if I were the owner I would not change too much the recipe, it seems to be working well!!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak and SeafoodThe food was fantastic. This is a great place. It is expensive but worth every penny.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThye have great food and theThye have great food and the service is exceptional.

French onion and clam chowder soups were excellent. Steak and seafood combinations were well prepared. The house salad was only average in our opinion. We'll return again to try other selections.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FoodI enjoyed the food with two other friends and all of have a good impression about this experience.

The food was super good and the service was excellent. My wife and I have tried many upscale restaurants like Pittsburgh Blue, Wildfire, Oceanaire and The Porterhouse is in the lead.

Super yummy!!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary DinnerWe celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary with dinner at Porterhouse. Once again, we had a very pleasant dining experience.

We could actually have a pleasant conversation without shouting.
The presentation is excellent, the steak quality is consistently superior.
Very good appetizer selection. The Spinach, Artichoke & Parmesan Ramekin is a must. The home-made New England Clam Chowder and French Onion Soup are terrific. This place is a gem.
Surprisingly, the fresh salmon can match any fresh daily catch on the East or West Coast. Amazing for Minnesota!
We've been to every top-rated steak house in town, and now we only patronize Porterhouse. Absolutely the best steak house in the Twin Cities.
The best Carrot Cake dessert you will ever experience. (Huge4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMPorterhouse Steak & Seafood-great!Fantastic food and service again at Porterhouse. My petite filet was delicious.

As always, every table filled.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe often come here for specialWe often come here for special occasions since the food is great.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLiverThat piece of liver I ate was fantastic. The portion was huge for average 5'3' body.
I brought the rest in the box, and ate for next 3 days. It was very delicious, moist, well done, so tasty. Asparagus was gently done, not overcooked or undercooked.
In generally, the prices are very high; I can afford it maybe once a year for very special occasion.
The drink that I had - Martini Flash (peach) was good, too. It comes in a shaker which waitress left with us and we pour in our glass as often as we want.
I wish the waitress would approach to us more often, seemed they had shortage for that day.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy diner at PorterhousWe always enjoy diner at Porterhouse.

We've been to some wonderful places over the years, downtown Mpls and St. Paul.
In my opinion, I liked Porterhouse the best. The location, the atmosphere,the delicious food, and the reasonable prices. And it was just more my style. I'm not a downtown kind of girl, I'm more jeans and sweatshirts.
The food was outstanding and the service matched. We were treated so kindly. The pace of the food delivery was something we all noticed too. We weren't being rushed at all.
The only thing that was a challenge is the parking!
I will definately go back, and take others with me!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice evening of quality diningBoth the food and service was superb.
