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!

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.
Nice comfort location, food not up to quality of the high prices
Loved it. Desserts were delicious.
Excellent as always! Will be back soon
This Restaurant is in an old old historical building but there is nothing old about the food and service these kids are young and well trained. extremely friendly and never a bother. you feel right at home in this cozy spot weather by thr fireplace on a cold winter night or on the porch in the summer brunch lunch and dinner are all superb..
Porters never lets us down. Food is always on point and delicious. My only complaint is the noise level. The acoustics are really bad and it’s difficult to converse at times due to very loud back ground noise. However, I will never stop going there. Hands down my favorite restaurant.
Received a gift certificate and it was well worth it. Great service & the food was exceptional.
Food is always superb
Noise level can be high
Fabulous food and we loved sitting by the fireplace We were seated immediately and our waitress Corinne was very friendly and attentive.
Fabulous food. Great service.
Most delicious strip steak At least 16 oz and real mashed potatoes. Service was very good.
Awesome food great appetizers great entrees and very good dessert it never disappoints I would give it 10 Stars if I could my wife and I love eating there
Delicious dinner by the warm fireplace. Food is great. Staff is perfect
A very comfortable neighborhood restaurant. Definitely ask for the room with the fireplace, it's a little quieter than the main part of the establishment. Solid menu, fresh salads, excellent soups & fresh oysters, Steaks were prepared just right and very ample and tasty. asparagus cooked to perfection. Service was friendly and ample, but we were talking a lot - probably didn't want to disturb us too much. Would definitely return and it's worth the drive if you come from within a hour of the place.
