Porters on the Lane Ratings and Reviews
A new find for us...just moved to the area and are getting trying out local restaurants.
This one is a keeper. We will def. be back for other items on the menu that sounded delish.
I enjoyed a lobster meat cocktail for an app. so fresh ... and the flank steak, which was more like a filet mignon, with shoe string fried onions. My husband had the baked clams and thought they were the best he has ever had... lobster Mac and Cheese. Out of this world...
Staff was profesional, service was great and food presentation was spot on...Drinks made well as well...Desert was a special and was ok...wouldn't order it again. Shouldn't have it anyway...
Quaint and charming ... GO!
Went to this Restaurant after seeing a play at the Gateway Playhouse in Bellport, LI. Great choices to eat. Try the Filet Mignon tidbits with the Gorgonzola Fondue, excellent. Short ribs were great. Also the French roasted chicken. Vanilla Creme Brulee for dessert. Would recommend this restaurant and would go again.
Just a great place! Delicious food, yummy drinks, wonderful ambiance. All servers are so friendly and seem to really care that customers have a great experience. There's nothing better than having dinner on the porch on a summer evening while watching the sun set. Would highly recommend Porters to everyone.......and I have!
I have been going to Porters for years and enjoy especially sitting outside on the terrace looking out to this charming village
The other night had the best lobster and tuna tacos.
Usually it's a very friendly crowd but the last night we were there the rudest people were all around us being rude to the staff The owner did the most amazing job protecting his staff especially our sweet waiter Eric and that night especially
Porter's is the kind of restaurant that can host an everyday lunch/dinner or a special occasion. In this case, an everyday dinner in between late meetings at work. We each ordered the Market Greens salad. Fresh ingredients, well blended with a light dressing. The American Dip sandwich with a side of House Cut fries for her and the Flatiron Steak with red wine reduction and sauteed string beans for me. Everything prepared to perfection and full of flavor. It was too warm for New England Clam Chowder so I'll be going back for that next time.
This was our first visit to Porters and we were completely satisfied with every facet of the dining experience. The main dining area is tastefully decorated in a nautical theme. The service staff was attentive and helpful. The food was prepared well and tasted great. They have a huge selection of wines and beers.
Good (not great) food. In a quaint little village, short walk from the Great South Bay. This restaurant is very busy in the summer, particularly on the weekends. The dining area is loud. The waitresses and waiters are very courteous, overall it was a good experience.
Always a good meal, but always way too Loud, I'm in awe that after all these years they STILL don't put drapes up to absorb the sound. If you want to catch up with friends and DON'T want to yell, don't go here. It's and easy fix for the restaurant, I guess they consider it "vibrant" .
What a mixed bag! The service was friendly and helpful. The food varied a lot: the tuna-taco appetizer was delicious, the salmon and shrimp entrees were OK, the profiteroles included stale cakes. The bar was uncomfortably noisy and the dining rooms not much better, but the porch was very nice.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The calamari was amazing and the salad was refreshing. The table was split on the salmon – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the short ribs . Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
Second visit in fourteen months. The first time was great. This time it just didn't measure up. Soup had turned sour. Tuna tacos nothing special. Lettuce wedge good. Two filets excellent, size and taste, truffle fries soggy asparagus good. No desert or coffee. Two mohitos. Bill $134 who tip.
