What does one associate when he or she thinks of a porch? Perhaps a laid-back summer evening (quite possibly with a mint julep or sweet iced tea in hand) in the company of friends and comfort food comes to mind…with the high ceilings and open kitchen, the design of Porch allows for something completely unique not only to the south valley but also to the greater Salt Lake area. With Chef Jen Gilroy of Meditrina Small Plates and Wine Bar also serving as the owner and Executive Chef of Porch, she will bring her culinary flair with a big helping of the American South to the table at Porch.

We went for my husband’s birthday and it was great! The food was so good.
Everything we tried was delicious, thoughtfully prepared, and creative. Will definitely be going back to try my items!
Overall it was a good experience, food was good. Timing of entree delivery was off, received one of the three entrees 10-15 minutes after the first two. Food quality was excellent.
Love love the porch. I go at least once a week. Really love the staff so friendly. Food is great
We had the fried chicken, mac and cheese, bruschetta, Brussels sprouts, cornbread, and stroganoff. All of the food was good. None of the items were particularly amazing, but all very good. Service was also good. Would probably go back again next time we are in the area.
We love coming here for Sunday brunch. The chicken and biscuits are a must along with the grits. The food is always fresh and flavorful. If you save room for dessert I recommend getting the banana Johnny cake, you won’t regret it.
Great service and food!
It's pretty much perfect. Not much else to add. Keep up the good work
Disappointed! I had the shrimp and grits which are usually pretty good. The grits were way undercooked and crunchy. The shrimp wasn’t cooked all the way through. The ham was hardly warm. The whole dish overall was barely room temperature.
They were out of the Wagyu beef which was the sole reason we booked our reservation. We ate other entrees that were good but not as good as their Wagyu. Service was excellent and next time we’ll call to make sure they have the Wagyu in stock before making our reservation.
Always great from start to finish! Staff is always friendly and helpful. Food was even more amazing than last time and prices are very reasonable! The grits are amazing as are the chicken and biscuits! Don’t forget to order the biscuits!!
Porch is delicious. I love the ambiance there and I’ve loved everything I’ve ever eaten. Always well recommended to all.
The food was very delicious. It was very expensive and more expensive than advertised
Went for my birthday dinner and was not disappointed
Love coming here! Staff were attentive and made recommendations! Love it!
Just do it. Porch will become your go-to cozy darling eatery with touches of industrial, rustic, live plants excellent food and service!! Server was engaging but not obtrusive, knowledgeable and professional in addition to demonstrating a strong desire to be of service with excellent follow-through. Ice tea was unobtrusively replenished continuously without prompting- delightful dining experience. Solid 3-Diamond listed restaurant.
I took a reso here by accident instead of Porch in CALGARY, didn't get a call but good job guys
Intimate restaurant with a small menu packed with great food. Very good service.
Burger was super raw, so I just ate long the perimeter. What I ate was good. Wish it had been cooked a slight bit more.
Great food and service
Restaurant was not open at 6pm! It was a birthday! App allowed reservations to be made
Safa is the best! Amazing food, amazing ambiance!
Great food, service and staff! We’ve been back 4 times since our first visit.
Service was great. The server did a good job of making sure we had drinks while we waiting for our appetizer. They seemed slow at the time but food was coming out very slow. I think we waited like 45min for our entrees. The steak was over cooked but they made it right. The chef and waitress made sure to put a rush on the replacement dish. Been going here regularly for sometime now and this was the first hiccup we’ve had. The strange part is they just didn’t have many tables there and we were surprised it took so long to get our food.
The place is small but looks nice. Lots of greenery. The ony thing is in the winter it is really cold. The seats are super small and uncomfortable. Would love to see them get new chairs.
The food is really good. The mushroom burger was amazing! The brunch menu is really good!
Holly was a great server, very attentive. However, the cajun Caesar was nothing but green lettuce and parmesan shaved, I had chicken added to it, but that was all it was chicken, lettuce and parmesan cheese, Caesar Salad? It was really a complete waste. My husband ordered the burger and it was good.
It was a great place for a girls brunch. Not too loud and was a fun place
Great meal and service. Would recommend.
The food was delicious and the portion size was good. Our server was amazing. I will definitely return.
Great food. Possibly the best shrimp and grits I’ll every had.
Great food and service!
Having just moved back to Salt Lake, we were delighted to find tasty treats from Chef Jen Gilroy still available at Porch, including a couple of old favorites, like Brie and Mushrooms. Tapas were as good as always, and the wine list was a winner. Looking forward to our next visit.
always an assume experience. Brunch on the patio is great and menu is unique and enjoyable, service was great.
Great food and service as always . Thanks!
Fantastic all around!
The worst restaurant experience I have ever had in my life from the lying hostess to my reservation time ( still had to wait over 30 minutes to get a seat ) to the food everything was horrible! waitress decided to wait over 20 minutes to let us know that they ran out of the items we ordered. we were there for about two hours and still did not get any food.
I will never return to the porch and I would never recommend them to anybody!
Our waitress was great, but it took an hour and 15 minutes to get our two burgers. We were there with our restless 5 month old.. so it wasn’t that great of an experience on our end! We will definitely come back, but hopefully during a time of day where it won’t take over an hour to receive our food.
The Porch always has quality food and drinks. Safa is a wonderful waiter and we always have a good time here. I found out you can BYOB on wine. The wine list is ok but they don’t have any of our favorites so next time we’ll try to remember to take one from our cellar.
