    This was my first time at Porter Creek. We had a 11 A.M. reservation on Saturday the 28th of May. I had the walleye, and my friend had a large salad. She had a glass of red wine and I had two mixed drinks. We finished the meal by sharing a cheesecake. The restaurant was nice and quiet. There weren't very many people there. The servers were friendly, attentive and made our time at Porter Creek better. My walleye was too heavily breaded and came with small red potatoes and spinach salad. I also ordered a Cesar salad. The walleye cost $29 which was not worth it. The amount was reasonable, but the taste was sub-par. The mixed drinks (screwdrivers) were both very weak. The Cesar salad was small and nothing to get excited about for $5. All in all, the service and atmosphere were commendable, but the food was not.

    We went to Porter Creek to celebrate our anniversary. It was a busy night - with multiple tables of prom groups. Our servers were attentive and conversational even with the amount of tables they were covering. And the food was excellent! We even got a free dessert for our anniversary.

    My wife ordered a filet with roasted vegetables, she sent the steak back 3 times, and the vegetables were burnt and over cooked. Terrible meal. The Mgr. Came over and comp. The meal, give us a dessert. For the prices they charge, I think this restaurant really needs to find a new chef.

    Once again, Porter Creek provided an excellent dining experience. The food was epic, best steak I've had in years. My date enjoyed the Spare Ribs. They weren't served with a knife, quickly noted the Spare Ribs were so tender that a.knife was redundant. I made a.special request, to have my beverage served when my steak was presented. Even after shift change had another server step in, my request was perfectly fulfilled. Never had to ask for drink refills, they just appeared when our drinks became.low. Both of our veggies were perfectly cooked, the other sides.were perfect. The server(s) were attentive yet unobtrusive. Their product knowledge was sharp, accurate.and on point.

    A great choice of restaurants for Birthday and late Mother’s Day dinner with the sisters and mom. We always love the food and wine (1/2 price bottles on Tuesday!) New summer menu looks great, although we stuck with our favorites this time. Service was excellent and they found us a “less noisy” corner so we could easily chat.

    Overall it was good. It was Mother’s Day, so very busy. The host was less than friendly and rather curt. She also seemed impatient with her fellow staff. However our waiter was great. Friendly and informative. I’m sorry I didn’t make note of his name. He did the perfect up sell on wine, got us to buy a bottle and he was right, it was a very nice rose!

    Porter Creek is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. If we want a special day out with a meal PC is where we go. When we make reservations for lunch on a nice day, (like many others) we request a table on the patio -and a high top is best. My husband is disabled, uses a walker, and the patio is the most convenient for him, along with a high top. On 5.7.22, I made 1:30 reservations and requested the patio. I recognize there is a statement that patio seating cannot always be accommodated. We checked in and the front desk person, said he had a patio table and when we got there, that was not available, we understood, and took a table in the adjacent interior sun room. It was perhaps 2 minutes and two tables opened on the patio. We told the person who took our drink order that we had requested a patio table and noticed two opened. He left with our drink orders, and someone else brought our drinks, and we again mentioned that we saw there were now tables on the patio, which we had requested... no response. It worked out okay, yet I would have expected better customer service, it was almost like our request was no longer a concern as we were seated. Had I have not asked about the available patio tables. it would not have bothered me, but I saw the wait staff's follow-up customer service as not the usual that we had expected and received in the past. Our server, Amy, was attentive to our food requests and pleasant, our food was very good, as were the drinks, yet we were disappointed that our patio request could have easily been made, had someone demonstrated they cared or it mattered. We will go back to Porter Creek, Burnsville again and if is a nice day, ask for a patio table, and understand if all are not available. Yesterday, however, was a different situation. Plus, I will insert that because of my husband's disability (Parkinson's) it is easier and more comfortable for him (and me) to be on the patio. We are still fond of Porter Cree and will return.

    We visited Porter Creek for Easter. I was a little surprised they didn't have one additional special menu selection for the holiday, but they did not. What we did order tasted good. The service was excellent. I enjoy the overall ambiance of Porter Creek. Excellent experience overall.

    Open table reservation was not found by the restaurant. If I had not brought along my confirmation number the evening would have been a disaster. This isn’t the first restaurant that I have had this experience. I think someone should look into it. Too many times I have not gotten credit for using Open Table. It is probably easier to just call the restaurant to get a reservation. That way I will know for sure that I will get a table.

    The food was excellent. However the service was slow and I believe there was a shortage of wait staff. Our server did not come around very often due to probably having too many tables to cover. When he did he was very courteous.

    Two of us ordered the short ribs. What came was not a short rib but some kind of flat cheap cut of beef. The 3rd person ordered the walleye which came on a bed of spinach. The walleye was good but the spinach was way overly salted. When she nicely mentioned it to the waitress, the waitress was rude & said the chef didn’t salt the spinach. The wait person asked us 3 times if we wanted dessert-each time we said no, just a check-but she kept asking. We finally got a check. Like this place but this time not so much.
