During this time of COVID, Porter and Luke's is a great place for social distancing. We dined during the brunch hours and the bottomless mimosa was the highlight of the meal. The drink is a great price at $6. We'd definitely go back and try different menu items. The food was good and was served in a timely manner.

Porter & Luke's is very conscientious about the safety concerns right now and that's the main reason I like going there. They take things seriously and you are able to relax and have a great dinner and not worry about being packed in next to others if you want to get out for a nice dinner. Thank you for taking precautions for us older folks who would not ordinarily go out due to safety concerns. You're the best!

We always enjoy our outings @ Porter & Luke's in Metairie LA. Service is always great, staff is very accommodating. Saturday night we upped our reservation from 4 to 9 family members at the last minute. No problem. Kids plates are generous size servings. A good time was had by all, 6 adults & 3 kids.

I was a bit nervous eating out during this covid time but Porter & Luke's took every precaution and were very inviting. Masks were worn by all the staff and tables were quite distant from each other. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. We will be back!

We always enjoyed going to Porter and Luke's before the stay at home orders and LOVED coming back! Thank goodness a lot of the staff were still there. They have taken EXTRA precautions for the dining area and we were very happy that they are respecting the older crowd's safety especially when it comes to COVID. The food was as delicious as always as was the service and the atmosphere (even though there were a lot less tables)! We can't wait until they are back in full swing but for now, we will be returning soon!

Our first venture out after quarantine and Porter and Luke's welcomed us. The staff was nice, restaurant was clean and spaced out well, cook time was quick. The experience was as personable as it could have been with masks on. Food was very good as always. Glad they were open.

Food was meh. Hamburger meat tasted old. Pecan curusted catfish was beautiful, but old fishy tasting. Caesar was ok, but dressing tasted pretty bad, sour aftertaste. Second visit. First was much better. Crab dip was great on first visit.

I think the kitchen was over loaded with the Valentine crowd. The meal came after a lengthy wait. I had the salmon dish and a very small piece of fish . They had to many diced potatoes.

The service from our young lady was great. the food was very good. We had hard time holding a conversation as it was very loud in there, nothing to absorb the noise. Would go back but probably for lunch, it was a bit pricey for the dinner experience.

The first table we were sat at in a pretty empty restaurant was a 2 top near the kitchen doors. When we asked to not sit at the kitchen doors, we were then sat at the bathroom doors. Come on. We had reservations but we were then ready to go else where. Miracles of all miracles there was a third option of a table at the front. The food was fine and the service was great but the whole table thing at the start of our meal put a damper on the evening

Was a little concerned due to mixed reviews, but no need. My jumbo shrimp, farfadell pasta special was just that special , and hubby's pecan crusted fish seemed to satisfy. Our waiter, Brian was right on, attentive and prompt. Will return.

We have been to P&L several times and it is one of our favorite go to restaurants whenever we are meeting anyone for lunch or dinner. They have a varied menu and the prices, quality, and quantity of food is unmatched by an other restaurant in the area. Parking is easy and we love the staff! Don't pass up this neighborhood gem!

This was our first visit to Porter and Luke's. We came on the recommendation of Torrye Skaggs who HIGHLY praised your food and dining experience. We had a party of seven and we were seated promptly with our reservation. This was our Christmas dinner with my elderly father so we wanted it to be especially good - it was! Two members of our party split a main course and it was well more than enough food for both. Thank you for a great evening!

Birthday and Christmas get together for 11 friends. Perfect restaurant for this. Lively and fun. Just the level of casual we wanted. We were not rushed but were attended to every minute. Our waiter Collin was superb. We would ask specifically for him again.

Catfish pecan was over fried in rancid oil. Vegetables were very over cooked. Fed Allemands catfish was not much better.
They charged another table to my bill and couldn’t figure out how to correct the error.

Too many things went wrong resulting in a very unpleasant evening.
