Been here multiple times - usually for special occasions. We sat at a table this time versus a booth. The tables are jammed together with people on top of people. Zero atmosphere.....

I was expecting the prices as everyone said it was a spendy place, but was floored by the GLASS of wine at $17 each... That wasn't called for. It was nice but I can't see going back. Food is good, but can find good food lots if places. The people though, they were top notch. Excellent service and overall customer service.

The steak was great! It was cooked perfectly. Also, I have special dietary needs, and the waitress was very helpful with making sure that I got the necessary food. I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, too. It had a warm and cozy feel while still being nice.

My husband and I joined friends to dine at Porterhouse. Three out of the four of us ordered streak, done to perfection. The New York Strip is 2nd to the hanger steak for our favorite cut meat. It was flavorful with a great sear on the meat. My friend who is a vegetarian ordered a stir fry of veggies which was not on the menu but they prepared it just for her. They were excellent. To end our time our server brought out a dessert for each of us complimentary as we were celebrating our birthdays. The crème brulee was one of the best I have had! Our server continued to take care of us well beyond our meal, refilling our waters and checking in with us. I would highly recommend Porterhouse for a pleasant dinning experience.

Great place to go for date night or to celebrate! The crab legs and ribeye were delicious! Loved the ambiance. It was a little noisy but all good noise, everyone enjoying themselves and it was very busy. The service could have been better, a little slow and inattentive.

Our visit was wonderful. We were there for our 12yr anniversary on a night just us, without the kids (we have 7). Our server and the staff all congratulated us on our anniversary and we felt well taken care of. We were called away due to a sick child and had to take our main meal with us. It would have been so much better fresh. Maybe next year :(. Will go here again!

I felt for the price, portions are small. All 4 of the steaks my group ordered were cooked the same although we ordered medium rare to medium well.
Fist half of service was slow, then new server took over and speed improved. Maybe it was between shifts.

We eat at Porthouse regularly because it’s close and the food is decent. We met friends there at 7 pm on a Sunday night. Made reservations because always crowded. Well, it was particularly noisy and non conversation friendly that night. There was a big family group including toddlers seated in the middle of the restaurant. They lingered after eating and after they left the table,they stood next to us like it was a cocktail party. Not a good atmosphere if you want to enjoy a pricey meal. Also, I have pointed out in prior reviews that the servers pace poorly. Almost always bring main courses when still eating first course. Hello—that makes diners feel rushed and the clutter of dishes on the table is annoying. Lastly, I wish they would trim the LONG stems off the spinach in their salad. Can’t eat it without cutting the whole salad up! For these prices, the kitchen can do better.

First time there for my birthday. Steaks were great and my daughter enjoyed her salmon special too. It is more of a special occasion restaurant as we didn't get out of there for under $100 for the 3 of us. We were charged extra for the additional toppings on our baked potato which I would have skipped had I known since I didn't use more than the cheese anyway. The steaks were done to perfection. The waitress didn't rush us and overall it was a very nice relaxing time. Will return and recommend.

As always Porterhouse never disappoints us in the level of knowledge and service from the servers. They are so intent on making sure that we are having a wonderful time without them even seeming that they are there. Food is excellent as always too. We are so fortunate to have this establishment in our neighborhood.

The food we ordered was great, however the service just about ruined our night. Our server was very patronizing from right off the back and when we received a ribeye that was very cold and very inedible she told us that was how they did medium rare. I can excuse a mistake from the kitchen, (and it was a mistake, that steak wasn’t even close to rare, I would be surprised if it was even over 100 degrees) but when I’m told that a raw steak is “just how they do medium rare” and that I’m wrong, that is inexcusable service. Very disappointed, because the rest of our food was good.

We really enjoy eating at Porterhouse and everything is typically exceptional; however the last couple of times we've eaten there we've been disappointed with their filets so not sure if we'll be back any time soon. This most recent time my husband ordered his filet medium and asked that they not char it on the outside. Of course the steak arrived charred so a total bummer. Rather than wait on a new one he cut off the charred pieces and ate around it, but just an unfortunate experience.

Atmosphere - Very warm, friendly and inviting.
Waitstaff - Awesome, very attentive and they know their stuff.

We started with a Spinach salad with warm bacon dressing - can I leave it at that or should I say "best salad I've ever had"!

We went for steaks but they have seafood items as well. We'll be trying the scallops and the Alaskan King crab legs on our next visit.
My husband ordered the 28oz Porterhouse steak, cooked medium and he ate it all the way to the bone so I'm assuming he liked it ;)
My choice is always the Ribeye cooked medium rare. I went all the way and ordered the 24oz! My steak was cooked to perfection!

With that being said I did have to ask if the steak was actually a ribeye because I associate a ribeye with delicious marbling which this steak had none. So I felt like I was missing some flavor. Besides that the steak was delicious!

Will I return? Hell yeah I will!

We've driven by here for years and finally decided to eat there for our anniversary. The ambiance and service were great- glad we had a booth as the tables seemed close together all lined up in rows. The food was above average but not stellar. The walleye was less flavorful than what I've had elsewhere. Perhaps it was the lemon butter. Order your meat more well-done than usual. Medium rare was raw basically except on the outside. We will go again at some point but I'd order something different.

We have been to Porterhouse several times in the last 4 years and usually have an exceptional meal. This time however, my husbands porterhouse steak was very tough on the N.Y. strip side. So tough most of it could not be cut with a knife. The tenderloin part of the porterhouse was very good but by the time he got to the other part it was too late to get a new steak so we ended up having it taken off our bill. Also very noisy (there was one large rude party that was making a lot of noise.). Something should be done with the open ceiling as it amplifies the sound. We will continue to go to Porterhouse because the food is so good usually.

Ordered a petite filet, medium rare. It was delivered medium rare, but was tough and had several areas (at least 5) of gristle that was not chewable. I had to leave it on the plate. I have had dinner there two times over the past year. The first time the steak was overcooked, and the waiter quickly agreed with me, bringing a 2nd steak. Of course this delay inconvenienced my dinner guests, and I didn't like rejecting the steak for that reason. Rather than again inconvenience my other guests (there were 4 of us), I put up with the poor quality cut. Not again
