  • "great dinner and the service and personal were excellent"

  • "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."

  • "Steak was not as good as priced. Ribeye was cooked correctly but lacked the marbling and tenderness found in most prime cuts."

  • "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."

  • "It was my second time and my significant other's first time- he can't wait to go back and neither can I! We went to celebrate his birthday and the server surprised him with a generous and delicious serving of cake. The only issue we had was finding a parking spot for the first ten minutes."

  • "Very good food and service except that even though we made a reservation we did not get a table until at least 30 minutes later. To make it up to us, the seconds we were seated, a manager or supervisor came and offered us a free appetizer of our choice from the list. We got the walleye strips and it was delicious. Our server was very good. She stopped by several times making sure we got everything we needed. I wanted my steak to be medium rare and I got exactly what I asked for. I could not say that it was the best steak for me but it was exceptional to my standard."

  • "I had been wanting to try the restaurant for a while now. I decided our anniversary was the perfect occasion to go with another couple. The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. I would have to say the only thing I did not like was we felt very cramped in our booth and the seats were low and the table high. It was uncomfortable. Next time I would request a table."

  • "The food, drinks, and service are always excellent at the Porterhouse. For special occasions or just dining out, it's a great choice."

  • "This was the first time that myself and my husband went to the Porterhouse. It was our 27th Anniversary and it was a perfect place for us to go. The food was amazing and I can't wait to go back and try something new."

  • "The ambiance is clubby steakhouse. It is obvious a neighborhood favorite for good reason. I ordered salmon, my husband steak, both were cooked to perfection. The servers are always friendly and very accommodating. The spinach salad is unbelievable. Every time we visit this place we leave full and happy."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • " The previous two times we had excellent service but this time the waiter was always in a hurry. We felt very rushed. He didn't even ask if we wanted another cocktail. He put very little effort into explaining anything. We went along with it because we know the food is always excellent."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "We had reservations and were seated immediately. However, it took a little over 10 minutes and me inquiring for a server to come to our table. She was extremely apologetic and offered us a complimentary appetizer for the mistake. There were 4 of us, we were celebrating my husband's birthday, and we all ordered different things from steak to seafood. Everything tasted outstanding--even the steamed broccoli! When compared to other steakhouses, this is definitely one of the best! You don't have to order everything ala carte for an extra charge. Their entrees come with potato and salad/soup choice, along with bread beforehand. One suggestion would be to have a variety of different breads in their basket for differing tastes."

  • "I am so glad I found Porterhouse, because the food is definitely something to write home about. The service was top notch. It wasn't too intrusive, and if you needed something, they were right there. Salad, bread, and sides were all excellent, but the real gem is the steaks. I have never had a more flavorful steak that was cooked to perfection. I can't wait until I get an opportunity to dine here again."

  • "We went to Porterhouse for the first time on our 25th anniversary. The steak and lobster was litteraly fabulous. Our server, Jennifer, was fantastic. A very memorable evening. Thanks Porterhouse!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "It was our anniversary. We were seated in a booth next to a very long table of guests who'd been placed in the middle of the restaurant and we had difficulty hearing one another. We used our 'happy anniversary' card, and appreciate that, but maybe there's a way you could try to seat parties of two a bit away from the group. Sliding those tables down to one end could've made it more of a nice experience for us. Thank you for maybe considering that improvement for future guests."

  • "Our dinner was terrific. Excellent food (steak, pork chop, salmon, spinach/artichoke dip appetizer) and good gimlets and martinis! all four of us would return! Nice booth, not too noisy on a summer Wed. evening. Good service by knowledgeable waitress. the supper club atmosphere is nostalgic and enjoyable. We also appreciated the "smaller portion" section of the menu; good option for "lighter" eaters."

  • "The food was excellent, the service was wonderful and overall the experience was just wonderful. It was a bit of a drive for us from Hopkins but it was well worth it!"

  • "We were greeted cordially and seated promptly at reservation time. The server presented the menu and explained the specials and what we might consider for dinner. Wine selection was fully explained. It did not take long for our order to be ready and served. It was delicious! Our server brought out a special cake, with a candle, for our special occasion. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone who want to have a good mean and an enjoyable evening. We will be back!"

  • "We were celebrating a 60th wedding anniversary. Our hostess and wait staff had subtly made accommodations for a walker, and through the meal managed issues with hearing and comprehension very respectfully . All of the steaks were cooked to perfection and all the sides and special requests handled masterfully. This is a place that is #1 in the top ten for food and service, and yet not so ostentatious or pricey that normal people are unable to enjoy. We love it here and come for every special occasion, and sometimes just to treat ourselves."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Great service and unbelievable food. I've worked at some high end steakhouses and I thought their meat was perfect and cooked just as ordered. Creepy black guy sitting alone kept staring at us, got the "off duty employee" vibe from him. Would still give it 5 stars though."

  • "Porter House in Little Canada is a great place to celebrate life. Whether it is a special occasion, or just a casual get together with friends, this restaurant never disappoints. The food and service are always above par."
