Had never been so I wasn't sure about it. The food and service turned out to be great! She loved it! Nuf said.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSouthern Hospitality in MidtownThis was our 1st visit to The Porch, I'm always up for an adventure, so because it was Mother's Day, I had the pick of the draw for restaurants in mid-town Sacramento, I chose wisely. We had a lovely waitress, she recommended the brisket & biscuits, my meal was PERFECT! We had a leisurely brunch and walked the waterway in Old Town, it was a perfect day!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great Mother's Day brunchHad a great Mother's Day brunch at the Porch. Service was excellent. My mom is from the south so it's great to see low country food taken to the next level.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect dinner on the Porch!Except for a couple of dishes please be prepared to enjoy some high calorie southern food. We did have the shrimp with cheese grits which satisfied this low carb gal. The kids fried chicken was to die for as well as the fried okra and biscuits. So great was the service!!! Our server, had the best smile!. Coming back to this downtown eatery.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome birthday celebrationI made my online reservation and gave instruction on what I would like upon arrival of my mom and The Porch was ah-mazing! I am so impressed. They provided the best service and most delicious food. The buttermilk fried chicken was ridiculously good. Never ever have I had such fantastic honey butter. Great cocktails and the MAC N' CHEESE, can we say hello just five more times.
I will be back asap to The Porch. Prices are high but well worth the cost. I would not bring kids here because the food is a bit expensive. Also, the entire experience says adults-only. But, everyone was nice and accomadating. Even down to the two bar tenders that made our drinks so that the other person would not have to wait! Love Love LOVE THE PORCH.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousWe go every year here to The Porch. Their staff is so friendly and it exudes southern hospitality. The food is excellent. The menu changes everyday. Upon asking for something I usually order that wasn't on the menu, they were willing to accommodate me. What a nice atmosphere!! It definitely feels like your out in the country on a porch drinking juleps.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe Porch is one of Sacramento's best restaurants. They treated my friend and I fabulously and for her birthday, we received personalized menus with her name at the top with birthday wishes and a memorable skillet cookie, compliments of the house. Oh, that skillet cookie....served hot, with chocolate sauce and pecans and blueberries and house-made buttermilk ice cream... Its worth a return trip just for that. The grilled cheese sandwich is ridiculously good, as are the sweet potato fries and the house-made ketchup. On a previous trip here I had the fried green tomatoes and fried chicken and grilled brie...everything is worth recommending. Its located on a cute and quiet block of K St. Just go.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll give it another try... But ...I wish the food was seasoned better. My meal was tasteless . However , I ordered the collard greens and they were delicious!!!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal SacramentanI'd be surprised if you were disappointed in a night out here.

We scraped our plates clean!!
A lovely night to have The Porch serve it on, too. It was quiet, guests are not as crazy as they are by the weekend, and people were chatting and just enjoying! I had Bbq'd Shrimp on a bed of Cheddar Polenta. Divine, melt in your mouth divine! My husband couldn't talk while he devoured his Crab Cakes Benedict. Can u just smell it!
Wine was wonderful. I had the house red, and it was a fabulous choice!
I will return again and again!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at The Porch---lovedFirst time at The Porch---loved it. The dishes were all excellant and the portions where very generous.

Great food, great waiter, great time.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDO YOU WANT TO AWAKEN YOUR PALATE..The food was so unbelievable. It took awhile because is was so very busy for the best Easter Brunch ever. The waitress was so very friendly she took time to speak to us about and answer questions about their menu overall. She stated that their menu changes all the time. They are ALWAYS new things. There is a happy hour available here as well that we want to go and experience as well.
IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND FANTASTIC FOOD!!!!!!!!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a review of an EasterThis is a review of an Easter brunch. The kitchen was overwhelmed, leading to excessive delays in food service. The Porch was aware of the problem, and had spaced out reservations so there was little wait for our table, and provided some mini-muffins to ease the hunger pangs. The food was almost worth the extra wait. The waiter noted to us this is a problem on most Sunday mornings, and suggested the Saturday morning brunch or dinner for a more enjoyable experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMComfort food for the soulWe love this place! The food is wonderful as is the service and ambiance. People look happy. That's a good sign!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our Easter BrunchWe enjoyed our Easter Brunch at "The Porch". It was some place new for us and the menu looked like something we would enjoy. It was right, we did enjoy our breakfast. I'm looking forward to going back at dinner time and find out what else is good.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff were very friendlyThe staff were very friendly and knowlegable. We had our 7 year old daughter with us and I appreciated the kid menu and how nice our server was to her. The portions for the kids meal were huge. If I could order it for myself, it would be the perfect size! The red velvet brownie dessert is AH-A-MAZING!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great brunch SaturdayHad a great brunch Saturday with family. Our waiter Garrett was awesome - very friendly, helpful and good with the kids. Food was excellent - I had the Avocado Scramble and would recommend it! Cute décor inside, very pleasant staff. Can't wait to try it out for dinner!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCute place, quaint atmosphere,Cute place, quaint atmosphere, good menu to choose from, accommodating with requests, attentive and friendly service.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA Sumptuous, Classy ExperienceThe menu selection has something for everyone; and,like any good restaurant, offers locally grown and organic foods - their flavors are incredible! I ordered the buttermilk fried chicken which came with my choice of 2 sides. I chose the cheesy grits and fried okra. This was an overwhelmingly flavorful dinner. Their beverage list is also outstanding! We ordered their Whiskey Sour Punch for 4 that was served in a glass punch bowl and ladled into small glass punch glasses. Serving your own drinks from a punch bowl at your table was a special treat. It set a tone. Later we tried their Flights of Whiskey. We ordered 2. For only $11 per Flight (3 3/4 shots in each), we were able to taste 6 of their best whiskeys from their selected whiskey list.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place that never disappointsGreat place that never disappoints when I am in Sacramento. Always great food!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMcompletely unique sweet gemFun little gem! Classy southern food with a twist. It is definatly a restaurant one of a kind. Only negative is we went for dinner and everything was sweet. Sweet buttermilk chicked, sweet sausage, sweet mashed potatoes and gravey. Had a blueberry lemonade cocktail and sweet tea. Both were excellent. Quick friendly service. Will have to go back to try breakfast one day.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Porch certainly met ourThe Porch certainly met our expectations. The food was excellent, as well as the service. Only one negative: our waitress informed us that they were bringing a special dessert to the table, as it was my husband's birthday. When we received the bill later, there was a charge for the dessert. I don't think it is typical in any restaurant to bring food to the table, not ordered by the customer, and then charge them. Everything was so wonderful though, I decided not to mention it.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIntriguing Southern menu.Intriguing Southern menu. My wife and I enjoyed the fried chicken (and we typically do not eat fried foods) and the sides were excellent...maple mashed sweet potatoes, ocra, collared greens. Large portions and would suggest going light on appetizers and small on salads. Service was friendly and attentive. Looking forward to going back and exploring the menu further.1/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
