Then we have the fireplace room which is located in the back of the restaurant, this quaint room has beautiful ivory tin walls & ceilings. A working stone fireplace from floor to ceiling which always makes this room popular in the winter or for private parties! We also have seating in the bar section at high top tables.

Porters on the Lane Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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.
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.
We went here for an impromptu New Years Eve early dinner. Unbeknownst to us, they had a prix fixe menu for the evening which we thought, at first glance, was pricey. However, when we saw all that it included and the choice of an appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert, it was actually an amazing value. I had delicious twin lobster tails and my husband had surf and turf (lobster tail and filet mignon). Everything was absolutely delicious and we couldn't have had a nicer dining experience. Thank you Porters!
We've been to Porter's several times now and the food is consistently good. Always a lively crowd, it can get a bit noisy as there is a lively crowd at the bar, but never unruly. I love their use of truffle in some of their menu items. Surprised that the steak did not come with a potato or veggie at that price point. Always friendly staff.
service was not very good and I ordered a crab cake that was lathered in some type of sauce which really masked the crabmeat-I probably should have sent it back. Waitress failed to check back at the table to clear or offer additional drinks in a timely manner. I've been to porters many times--usually for dinner--and it's always been much better than this time (which is too bad because it was a bridal shower). Christmas decorations ere very pretty and the fireplace was nice.
Was at Porters last night to find I was sitting next to a very rude and snobbish couple.. we watched and heard them belittle every one on the staff. when a manager came over (very sweet young lady) they verbally assaulted her because a busser cleared a plate that literally had a tiny tiny pc of bread on it.. the complaint was that there are starving children in Africa.. was nice to see the owner come out and defend his staff and escort these jerks out. which brings me to my point the staff is always great here,., friendly and happy and this is why. they are a family.. a team food speaks for itself.. always outstanding in every way
