Porter's Steakhouse in the Read House Historic Inn & Suites - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Terrible service! Waiter shattered glass all over us-clothes, shoes, etc. He did nothing to rectify the situation. A decent restaurant makes up for ruining your anniversary dinner. This restaurant is not worth your time or money. Food is over seasoned and over priced. We were really disappointed.
Our meals were excellent - every item was cooked to perfection. The service was friendly, but slow and disorganized — the biggest annoyance was that dishes weren’t cleared in s timely manner. In fact, there were so many dirty dishes on the table next to us that when they tried to make room for dessert on the table some dishes fell off onto the floor and broke. A little more attention to detail on service would have made this a 5 star experience all the way around.
OK Restaurant. Nothing special. Better options in Downtown Chattanooga for sure. Service was slow, food was just OK (My . For a "Steak House" it had very limited selection of cuts for meat. I had heard good things about this place and been looking forward to going. While it was a good restaurant, I was ultimately disappointed with the experience.
I am sure at one point this restaurant was great, seen it's better days. We left without eating. Dirty/stained table cloth, dirty/stained napkins and dirty presentation plates upon being seated. Made it difficult to stay and expect the food would be worth the price.
Someone needs to begin paying attention to details and cleaning the place up, too many better choices in the Chattanooga market.
Went to Rodizio Grill and spent less money and a wonderful dining experience.
Our waiter was fantastic but the food was mediocre at best. The steak marinated in peppercorns was overpowering in pepper. The flavor of the meat was lost in the marinate. We ordered a martini off the menu and they did not have the ingredients to make it. Would not recommend.
Wait staff lackadaisical and uninformed about menu items. Another patron paced through the dining room ranting in a loud voice on his cell phone and then conducted a conference call standing behind our table. Management did not address. Service was unprofessional for this type of establishment. Will not return.
The food was delicious! I ordered the Ribeye with Spinach and Mushrooms. My wife ordered Salmon with Asparagus and Spinach. Both meals were cooked to perfection.
The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. It was a nice restaurant but felt somewhat casual as well. You could wear anything from shorts and a collared shirt to a full suit.
The host was very welcoming and the waitress was very friendly and helpful! I look forward to visiting Porter's again soon!
This is a traditional steak house with great steaks. Some seafood and an amazing chicken Marsala. Great large sharing sides, good salads, quiet refined atmosphere. Even my pescetarian daughter enjoyed it. I think they accidentally switched mine and my wife's cooking temperatures. Even so, my medium well lamb chops were excellent and she surprisingly enjoyed her medium NY Strip.
Worst food ever. Actually had to spit out the vegetables. It might have been the 3 whole cloves of raw garlic. Beef Wellington was covered in stringy raw dough. Sent back and chef said it would just come out the same so order something else. The "famous" steak, much better at any chain steakhouse. Mushrooms tasted like they were done in an A1 sauce reduction. Frankly I couldn't believe any of it would even end up on a plate. $100 later, left most of the food on the plate and went out for dessert to get the taste out of my mouth.
(She Crab soup was very good however). Wow, I heard that place was haunted, it must have been the ghost doing the cooking.
my only complaint was that when I reserved a table the only time available was at
either 5:00 pm or 9:00 pm. we got there at 5:00 and left at 7:30 and the reasturant
was never fuller than 20 percent. we could not figure that one out. we would had rather
gotten a table at 6:30 but could not. there was only 6 couples in the dinning area the whole
time we were there.
Wonderful dinner date for Valentine's day for my husband and myself! Our food was great, quick, and tasted delicious. The manager was a very gracious host and treated us like we were someone special. Our service was exceptional and the staff was very kind and conversational. We will definitely be back!
First things first, the food was absolutely exceptional. Just really great flavors, cooked to perfection, very yummy! Our reservation was perfect. We arrive a little bit early even and went right into a table. The servers were super friendly and very attentive. We had a really great evening there.
