This is one of our favorite places! The food and service never disappoint! It is a bit expensive but worth it!!
Very enjoyable. Good service. Lobster roll and cesare salad were a 10.
Our go to restaurant the New Zealand lamb chops are incredible so tender and juicy they fall off the bone
One of our favorite restaurants in the area. I would recommend this restaurant.
really good food, friendly service, will try again
Family visit from Virginia
A very cute spot with fine dining selections. I only wish the acoustics better lent themselves to quiet conversation with others in your party. Look forward to returning so that I can try dining on the piazza.
Much too loud! We were happy to be seated away from the bar but it didn't
seem to matter. We couldn't wait to get out as the noise level was deafening
Food was sooo good! Waitress was awesome!! She was super friendly and very thorough. We’ve been here many times and we are never disappointed!
Delicious as usual and great service.
It was my girlfriend’s birthday & we both had the Chilean Sea Bass with brussels sprouts & truffle mashed potatoes. For an appetizer, we split the wedge salad & topped it all off with specialty coffees. The portions were generous & delicious. Back room was quiet enough but it was cold and damp out so it would’ve been nice had the fireplace been lit. It was chilly inside the restaurant! Service was swift but dining room was also not crowded at that time; we were one of four tables. Entrance/bar area was VERY noisy but the doors to the dining room blocked out most of the noise. All in all, a good experience & I would definitely go back, maybe on a Sunday when the bar crowd may be smaller.
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.
Everything good EXCEPT it was freezing and noise level too loud to have a conversation without raising voice. Food and service great.
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!
