    We invited 2 friends who had never dined at Porterhouse before. My husband and I have had many dining events there. Our friends loved the food, the drinks, our cozy corner booth, it was a win-win evening. Porterhouse serves the best steak I have ever eaten. I don't order steak at any other restaurant. It is prepared just like I like it.

    This popular neighborhood restaurant offers great food. The atmosphere is that of a traditional, wood paneled steakhouse - nothing fancy or particularly romantic; it's more about the food. It is a very busy place and I would recommend reservations. We enjoyed a filet and a seafood selection. Both very good.

    My husband and I have been to Porterhouse Steak and Seafood in Little Canada many times and each time they out do themselves, service-wise and food-wise! We mainly dine there for our Anniversary or Birthdays, and the cake they serve at the end of the meal is a wonderful treat! We will defiantly be back!!

    Everything was great from the apps, the cocktail sauce is fantastic with the horseradish bite. Steaks and fish were perfectly done. Drinks were well crafted,I love the blue cheese olives with my Vodka rocks. They even brought us a cake after dinner for our aniversary. I would be a more frequent diner but it can be hard to get a table if you don't plan in advance. I would rather eat and drink at Porterhouse than any of the "big name" steak houses in downtown Mpls.

    It was my first time going to Porterhouse Steak and Seafood & I have to say it will not be my last! I ordered the ribeye & my bf had the porterhouse steak. The steaks were so juicy and yummy! The mashed potato was also delicious. Altho, I wish they had more options for veggies. All the employees were so nice and respectful. It was my boyfriend's birthday and we got a complimentary dessert- it was huge too! :) Thank you so much Porterhouse Steak and Seafood! We will see you soon! :)

    I recently invited four family members to join me for dinner at Porterhouse, in appreciation for their help during my recent move. I had been there previously for the first time, and was so impressed, especially by the food, that I wanted them to enjoy a meal there as well. Everyone had a steak, and we shared two appetizers. We all thought that everything about the place was terrific, and it was decided that more of the family members needed to come and enjoy dinner here. We were seated right away, and our server was excellent.

    My wife and I split the Black and Blue Ribeye. It ranked as one of the top ten steaks I've ever had. At 58yo That's saying a lot. The Baked potato made the list as well, My son said it was #1 on his list. Thank you Porterhouse!

    First time dinning at the Porterhouse. The food and service were outstanding! The only drawback, and that was minor, was a noisy party close by us. They left a short time after we were seated and the noise level returned to a normal level. We'll be back again, just wish we lived closer!

    The Porterhouse is a great place for steak and seafood. The Filet Mignon is one of the best I have had. We shared the filet and an order of Crab legs, delicious! Very nice atmosphere. Wait staff is professional and attentive. Always a great experience.

    We wanted to find someplace different to go for our anniversary. I wanted seafood but my husband wanted steak. I googled those key words & found Porterhouse Steak & Seafood. We were seated in the bar area in a cozy comfortable booth. The décor is nice, the restaurant is clean, and the staff are friendly (and quick). I ordered the petite filet and the walleye filet and OH MY- it is honestly the best meal I have had in a long time! The meat was cooked perfectly and had such great flavor. The walleye was out of this world delicious. My husband ordered the prime rib and said it was delicious. To top off our evening, our waitress brought out a complimentary cake for our anniversary- yum! What a nice touch. We highly recommend this restaurant!

    A varied menu of steak, seafood and great appetizers guarantees a nice experience for carnivores. Vegetarians might be disappointed in the lack of veggie choices. Also, need some better potato choices for those steaks. Steaks were cooked to perfection.

    The food is always excellent at the Porterhouse, however we had a table of six seated after us and right next to us and they carried on like they were in someone's basement at a home bar............language was less than polite and they were quite loud. We cut our stay short because of them. I think they might be regular customers, but I would ask to be moved if I get seated near them again.

    My wife & I go to Porterhouse several times, a year. It's our favorite place for dinner, & it's always been great food & service. Last month, though, I had a "less than desirable" beef filet. I reached out to management, in an email & unfortunately, have had no reply. This issue will not likely keep us from returning, but I'd have hoped that the manager would have felt the need to follow up.

    Our service was slower than usual, but I understand one of the waitpersons did not come in that night. We felt Porterhouse handled the situation exremely well. Three of us ordered baked potatoes and they were not hot enough to melt the butter! We did not send them back, though, which we probably should have done, but we knew you were pressed for waitpersons. Another diner in our party ordered broccoli, which was delivered to her very cold, so she did ask for a replacement.

    I love the Porterhouse. When I moved to Mn. 18 years ago, I started going to the PH by myself and I felt comfortable. The bar area is enjoyable and you always find someone to talk to. The bartenders and wait staff are excellent, friendly and fast. Now I go whenever I can either with my fiancé or with a group. We were there Thursday 8/21 with 8 people and they all loved it. Especially our birthday lady. She was surprised how nice the cake was.
