what can you say about Porters on The Lane? its clean, crisp and very friendly. The staff here stays out of your way but is always nearby when needed. they are fantastic. This place carries the best lobster roll I have ever had. The steaks are like they are from a top steak house. all of the food here is fresh. and delicious. try it.
Took my wife, mother-in-law and my mother here for Mother's Day Brunch. The menu choices were wide enough that my wife was easily able to find Gluten Free options for her meal. Overall terrific service and waitstaff with good food at a reasonable price.
We had an early Mother's Day dinner and it was delicious as usual! Appetizer's of Filet Mignon Tidbits are so tender, potato soup very good, and mini fish tacos were yummy! Meatloaf, hamburger, and ribs were all done to perfection and plenty of food! We usually eat half of our meal and save the rest for dinner the next day and that enables us to share a dessert! 😊 My only complaint is we were FREEZING the whole time we were there! Usually they have the fireplace going in the back area where we were seated but not this time! It actually felt like the air was on while it was rainy and cold outside! Next time I'll dress a lot warmer! I dislike being cold especially while having a nice dinner out!
The service was good, but it took almost an hour for our entrees to be served. The food was hot and very tasty. I would recommend the lobster roll, and the pulled chicken pot pie!
Best Lobster roll ever... Thanks for bringing it back. staff is always great
We always enjoy eating here. Great place before a show.
My New Favorite Restaurant.. food is absolutely delicious and well priced best happy hour around. Lobster roll is hands down the best I have ever tasted.
Absolutely love Porter on the Lane! One of our favorite restaurants for any occasion. We usually celebrate birthdays there and we always have a great experience. The food is delicious and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend it to everyone!
Just what we wanted..we stayed over 2 hopers with nobody rushing us to leave
Delicious food, good atmosphere, we were seated beside a beautiful fireplace. A little pricey though. 250.00 for a party of 4. Non drinkers.
Hands down one of my favorite places. Service is always great, food outstanding and a very sweet place. Great for a date, for lunch, or a special occasion. If you haven’t been there you’re missing out. Have the profiteroles for dessert!
celebrated Mom’s birthday. Everything was perfect!!! the service, the food, the atmosphere!!! Top notch!!
Good food and a varied menu with seafood and steaks in a charming historic building. Gluten friendly. Go mid week or sit outside if you want to converse.
Charming place. I little loud, thanks bar crowd 😒. Attentive service but not pushy. Food was good. My husband ordered clam chowder which was heavy on the potatoes, light on the clams but tasted good. The burger was good and so where the fries. I ordered a salad which was one of my famed ordering mistakes. It came exactly as described, plain (boring). And I had a crabby cake, delicious.
absolutely brilliant restaurant food awesome service excellent from hostesses to bartenders to service people were brilliant definetly worth the trip
We always enjoy Porters. Very consistent with their food preparation, and the wait staff is very friendly. Had the chicken pot pie which was delicious!
Food was delicious. An overall enjoyable experience.
Have been coming to Porters for years now and they never disappoint. Food is always great and the service is excellent. I highly recommend their steak and they always have great seafood dishes.
Excellent food & service....we will be back & highly recommend.
Porters is a great place to meet up with a friend for a drink or casual meal. The crab cake sandwich with a side of potato bacon croquettes was very tasty comfort food, though not exactly diet friendly. Maybe I'll go for one of their lighter offerings when I go back and I will definitely go back :)
The wait staff was very friendly. The bar area was a bit crowded and loud-but I was a Friday night an definitely expected.
The food was fantastic, the drinks were delish, and we can’t wait to come back again!
Steak was tough and chewy, truffled mashed potatoes were bland and cold, sweet potato fries were very good, will not return
Always enjoy the food here. Service was excellent as usual. Porters is one of my faves
Nice place good goid
Very pleased with Jess the bar tender who we had two cocktails with. Then we moved to our table for dinner. After at least 15mins and no one said hello or someone will be with you., or any acknowledgement that we were there it would have been ok. It’s not like they were super busy either. We went back to the bar, had another drink and dinner there. We like attention and jess gave us that. I almost felt like the servers were snobs and we were beneath them. Don’t plan on going back there anytime soon.
Excelllent food. I had the filet mug in which was perfect and delicious.
Loved it!! great atmosphere, food is very very good and the staff is very friendly and helpful
Very noisy table next to ours, but overall dining experience was very good. Waitress was outstanding!
loved the Lobster Roll, had to be one of the best I have ever had.. its off the menu now for the winter but I am already dreaming of it coming back. shrimp cocktail is delicious they do something to it that has this magnificent flavor staff is always top nitch
never once has this establishement disappointed. delicious all around
Nice place bar busy but not disturbing to meal for two. Wife’s dinner was great mine okay
Food, service and atmosphere excellant!
Delicious steak and apps! The red wine steam sauce is so amazing I always have to get it!
Valentine’s Day we expected to have to wait a little before being seated, but we sat right down and not more than 10 minutes later had our drinks! The service was outstanding, the food delicious. We did not feel rushed at all and our courses came at just the right time. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food and service have eaten here many times
And STILL does not disappoint
Food was very good. I cant say anything bad about the overall dining experience. Server was very attentive and food was delivered very quickly.
always perfect. Thank you Porters.. staff is so much fun
Our first time at "Porters on the Lane!" Very nice neighborhood gem! Excellent and friendly wait staff! Requested a table by the fireplace as it's somewhat quieter from other comments I read on Open Table regarding this restaurant! Good idea! Enjoyed the Filet Mignon Tid Bits appetizer! Yum! 😋 Boneless ribs dinner was delicious as well! Our dessert was warm Bread Pudding with vanilla ice-cream! We will definitely be back very soon! Thank-you for a wonderful dining experience!
Delicious Love dining here. food is the most consistent anywhere I have been staff is always friendly and accommodating
I go several times a month here. Always a great experience. Lots of food options and they are all good but I especially love their salmon, steaks and they make an incredible risotto. Just go, best decision you will make.
