But our food was not good. The limb crab hush puppies tasted like regular hush puppies. Very minimal crab meat. The chicken wing appetizers weren't crispy like I asked them to be. The skin was chewy and the wings themselves weren't well seasoned (I took only one bite and the sever saw that the plate was otherwise untouched, so took them back and graciously did not charge me). . My green goddess salad was probably the best item. My husband's beef and cheddar sandwich was fatty. He did not enjoy it. My 5 year-old who loves anybody's chicken tenders and fries ate his fries, but only took one bite of the chicken tenders. He said he didn't like it.

That was the end of our good experience. I will start by saying I have left very few negative reviews in my life as in the few bad experiences I’ve had over the years I believe in giving a business the opportunity to correct/resolve an experience first hand. I’m writing this as it was very off putting to be made to feel that our time and experience was not important. We ordered a bourbon drink &ask specifically about the way it’s made, the server to assured us it’s as we wanted. The drink took over 20 mins to arrive, ok no problem, it’s busy. But it was not made with the description she promised & with no acknowledgement from her for telling us incorrect info but ok let’s make the best of it now that the food has arrived. After tasting the drink it was clearly made wrong so they took it to be remade, we didn’t get it back until we had basically finished what we could stomach of our meal. It was good when we finally got it back, just crazy that it took almost an hour to get 1 drink. We ordered an appetizer and entree to share. The cheese bread was stale like it had been sitting out drying for days &the tomato soup was more like a Luke warm marinara sauce. Ultimately it didn’t matter that we couldn’t get a spoon. We requested the salmon have crispy skin but not be over cooked. I will attach the pics of the undercooked mush we received. When asked if everything was ok we expressed that the food was disappointing, cold soup & undercooked mushy fish. We got an “oh sorry.” She brought us the check w/full plates. We paid $60 for a drink that came at the end of the meal & 2 dishes that should never have left the kitchen. We still tipped our server as it’s not her fault if the bar is behind or the kitchen had an off day but quite frankly her lack of caring &treating us w/ a “oh well” attitude was the worst part. Do yourself a favor & eat anywhere else. Food&service is awful

But waited 15 minutes until another waiter said she would have to help. She seemed very busy and was wonderful but was being pulled in multiple directions. My husbands fries were really cold and stale. My kale salad wasn’t good. Under seasoned and under dressed. Got the grilled salmon on top, and it was very undercooked:/ really wanted to like this place since we were staying in the Marriott but we probably won’t be back.

I ordered salmon medium rare, and I got a large portion a little more rare than medium, but that was OK. My wife ordered fried chicken because she had never had it, and she got a large portion well prepared. They had something like 2 dessert choices, and the one we shared was excellent.

Menu is limited and the food was mediocre. Server was pleasant but slow and not knowledgeable. It took me 20 min to get my drink because she didn't know how to ring in a negroni, and when it finally came it was not very good.

I expected my salad with my meal and all were served together ... not sure if that is their standard, or how it just happened ... not the end of the world, but you may want to specify if you want your salad before. Portions were just right. Limited menu, but great food. Prices are a bit on high side; however, not terrible for a convention hotel restaurant, as the food quality was outstanding. I highly recommend and would go back.

The hostesses were great as was the manager that was there when we checked in. The servers were excellent, both Belle and Michaela. The cheesy monkey bread and tomato soup was fantastic and we were very pleased with our other selections. We will definitely be back when the weather is warmer to enjoy the open air concept.

The “menu” was four items on a 4x6 photocopied piece of paper - cinnamon roll, oatmeal, yogurt, and eggs. When we asked if this was all that was available, the hostess/manager curtly said “yes”, turned around, and walked away. The kitchen couldn’t prepare poached eggs and refused to add onions into the hash browns. Compare this to Repeal, a few blocks away, where they have a full menu and kitchen willing to cook for their guests, and there’s really no reason to eat at Porch anymore. The only bright spot was our waitress. I think her name was Amanda. She was very attentive and helpful.

Since COVID, the menu has shrunk due I imagine to staffing and supply chain issues. That said, they have begun adding items back so they’re making progress which I was delighted to see! The food is absolutely excellent, always. It’s sort of modern home cooking with a southern flair—which a fancy way of saying you can pick winners from the menu blindfolded. It’s all very good!! I’ve eaten here many times since it opened and I always come away very full and very happy!!

Worst coleslaw I have ever tasted, gravy for mashed potatoes was thick and had huge chunks of mushroom. The brisket nachos were decent. The fried chicken was dry, only thing that saved it was the honey drizzle. Service was excellent!

Sat in a corner with a view of the city. Just loved taking it all in, seeing the artwork & catching up w/ family members. The menu is not what we would normally eat, but wanted to try something new & this place did not disappoint. Welcomed by staff/employees immediately & our server was great from start to finish. We were able to catch a few different games being played on the various TV’s. We will be back!!
