Would love to see you offer smaller sized entrées and salads at a lesser cost. Your portions are always way too large and for salads that is not something you can bring home.

This is our “go to “restaurant whether it is date night or as a family. It’s also a great place we bring people visiting from out of state. The menu has a great selection and variety. We can never go wrong. We always tend to visit more so during the fall/ winter months and really look forward to a time in the summer so we can enjoy their beautiful outdoor patio. The staff and food are absolutely exceptional!

Have been there several times and enjoyed it. This time they forgot to put the "Love" in the food?!?!
The chicken was great but the veggies were undercooked and the potatoes were just OK....

Good selection of food choices. The lamb shank was especially good and very tender. My husband's flat iron steak, however, was very chewy. The service was very good.

I like this place yet the pot pie was loaded with garlic and salt. Very disappointed. I didn’t want to say anything to anybody because I was with a business client.

Service was good not great. A key indicator for me is always water refills, and plate pick up. Both were slow and often had to ask for it.

Staff was personable and on task. Seating was immediate. There was a very large party near us. Did not seem to impact the timing of our orders or the service to our table. Nice menu selection. Meals were good.

We had a wonderful birthday celebration here. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 2 children. Everyone was able to find something to eat. We will most likely go back again.

This was one of my favorite restaurants but we had a very bad experience on Saturday, January 18, 2020.

Two of us had to send our meal back, mine was too salty. Two others ordered the famous salmon entree and got hard, cold potatoes. Sadly, neither one spoke up during the meal. I personally saw their potatoes. They were literally hard, grayish and cold.

My husband, who is gluten free, ordered an entree that was gluten free only to have someone in the kitchen put a couple pieces of toast on top.

Our wait and host staff were wonderful. I'd really like to go back to Porter Creek but only if they fix their issues in the kitchen.

Food choices were interesting and delicious.
Daniel our server was attentive and helpful.
We chose the molten chocolate pudding with caramel sauce but asked for no peanuts (I have an allergy) and vanilla ice cream instead. I think this pudding needs to be served with vanilla ice cream as without it it would have been too sweet for us.
Excited to see you serve espresso coffee, so often restaurants don’t.
We will be back ... thank you for a great dining experience.

Very nice, warm atmosphere. I had the New York Strip with the herbed Chèvre on top. The steak was done as ordered and chèvre on top added a nice buttery component. My husband had the duck which he also liked. It could have been a touch rarer for his taste but it was still flavorful. The couple that we were with had the Cobb salad and the Southwest salad. Both looked great, in fact I would probably order the Cob the next time we eat there. They only thing that I would rate as poor is their drinks. I had a very very weak long island which had basically no alcohol. It had a very strong sour flavor. The waitress said that they make their own sour. I liked the sour but there was way more sour than alcohol. My husband had an old fashioned that seems to have quite a bit more soda than the described "splash". Much like their partner restaurant Doolittles, go for the great food and atmosphere and skip the drinks.

Beautiful decorations (around Christmas). The restaurant is a very nice setting with a great look. Our server was friendly and attentive without hovering or rushing us. Her recommendations were helpful. The food was delicious. I had a lamb chop special, my wife had a seafood stew. Both were flavorful, nicely presented and thoroughly enjoyed.

Overall, food & service was great!
The place was pretty busy and Travis was very on-top if it (our waiter). He was always there when he’s needed, super tentative.

Thanks for an excellent service.

My tenderloin was more well done than medium well and I asked for double asparagus instead of potatoes and got very little asparagus. One other in party ordered tenderloin too and it was more medium rare than medium well. Kettle seafood was very light on fish and seafood. Service was great and quick.
