A word from Porters on the Lane
Porters on the Lane features an American menu. Highlighting steaks and seafood. Served in casual atmosphere with a choice of dining areas & menu options for any palette. There are four dining areas to choose from as well as the bar - The main dining room is spacious with navy & white decor located at the front of the restaurant with windows overlooking the porch & Bellport lane. Then we have the fireplace room which is located in the back of the restaurant, this quaint room has beautiful ivory tin walls & ceilings. A working stone fireplace from floor to ceiling which always makes this room popular in the winter or for private parties! We also have seating in the bar section at high top tables. Then the last option is the front porch which is open seasonally & weather permitting. This is a beautiful space for outdoor dining & certainly the most requested area when available.

    Porters is one of our most favorite local delights. The menu is changed seasonally and the nightly specials are always of variety. The summer Risotto is a must have, along with the striped bass. Specialty drinks are of enjoyment and of reasonable pricing.

    Greatly enjoyed our first time at Porters. It was an interesting menu with just enough selection for fish lovers to the steak enthusiast. Service was excellent and the feeling friendly. I definitely will be recommending this new find to my family and friends with complete confidence. Loved, loved, loved, the quaint atmosphere...very homey feeling. The food was good... especially enjoyed the many appetizers.

    Place is very cute, but the noise level was truly deafening; like being at a wedding band so loud you cannot have a conversation. We will find alternative when going to theatre. Not at all relaxing.

    Several dishes with truffles including mashed potatoes which were delicious. I came here on a recommendation. My nephew raved about the truffle raviolis but I was enticed by the roasted chicken with truffled mashed potatoes and I'm glad I chose it. It was very tasty and juicy. It was a Friday night and the bar was busy but not Rudy. The dining room is separate. In warmer weather you could have dinner on the tables outside. The only negative is that the waitress didn't come back to check on us until the meal was done. She was initially attentive but not after the meal was delivered. Not as attentive as I would expect. I will be back for those raviolis.

    There was a table near us which was VERY noisy also noise from the bar was also loud. It was so bad I kept saying "sorry I can't hear you" . The woman across the table from me kept saying "what I can't hear". The noise ruined what I think would have been a really nice dinner. I would lthink long and hard before I would go there again.

    We liked everything about Porter's on the Lane, except for the noise level. We could barely hold a conversation with our friends whom we hadn't seen in a long time. We couldn't wait to get out of there. The food was excellent. We will go back, but request an outside table when the weather gets warmer. They really need to do something for noise reduction. Drapes, rugs, or something to soften the all wood restaurant might be helpful.

    We recently enjoyed a dinner with friends and family at Porters on the Lane for my wife's birthday. We had a large party (of 9) and all had a great time. The food, atmosphere, and service were all awesome and although the restaurant was very busy, we were happy to see that our table was ready right on time. Highly recommend the short ribs, and the dessert trios are a must try!

    Enjoyed our dinner very much. A little loud but it was Saturday night and very busy. Food was well prepared with generous portions. Service was quick and polite. Surprisingly it did not feel like a restaurant in Bellport, both the ambience and clientele seemed more like what you would expect in the Hamptons or even Connecticut.
