    My husband and I LOVE Porter Creek. I'd made reservations through OpenTable and we were walked to a wonderful table next to the fireplace. Excellent food, as always. Our favorite server, Megan, is in that area so we were very pleased to have her take care of us. This IS one of the best restaurants South of the River! You will not be disappointed.

    Food was very good, as usual. My wife's steak was wonderful, though my salmon seemed a bit dry, not as moistas it was at our ladt time there, a week ago. Reservations were made about a month prior. However, we were seated right next to the servers station and is was more noisy with their communication and chatter. I don't recommend having a dinning table there for that reason.

    Frustrating that I gave the hostess my name (on the reservation for 3 people) and I was seated near the door at hostess's urging, so I could notice when the rest of my party arrived. Found out after waiting 15-20 minutes that the rest of my party was already seated in the front room. Hostess hadn't figured out that the 3 people under the same reservation were seated in opposite areas of the restaurant. Wasted time and frustrating for wait staff as we had to abandon table settings and resettle.

    We were served drinks pretty quickly after sitting down, but immediately we noticed every other step of the way was slow. We didn’t receive bread until it had reached an hour of us being there. The server did everything at half speed, and the steak was amazing but all other food was underwhelming and seemed like it had been sitting under the warmer for a while. Overall would not be a top choice for a “high end dinner”.

    Dinner with family prior to our church Christmas concert! We were seated promptly and Larry took excellent care of us. I had the bone in pork chop which was excellent and ample portion. Great evening! The only complaint was that the fireplace room was a little cold! 🥶

    My husband and I had our Anniversary dinner at Porter Creek Hardwood Grill in Burnsville. I placed an inline reservation. We arrived a little early and the host welcomed us and seat us in. The server was friendly and nice. It was our first time and she suggested food on the menu. We just want to have fun and enjoy our dinner. The food was good. My husband loved his beef rib and I had the New york Strip steak. They gave us free dessert for our anniversary. I love the ambience. It was packed but it doesn’t feel like crowded. We had a great time. We will be coming back back for sure!

    This continues to be our favorite local restaurant. We've tried two of the dishes from the recently updated menu and have enjoyed both. The teres major was excellent and the prosciutto-wrapped black cod, though a little salty for my taste, was also a unique and flavorful dish. The staff continues to be professional and fun, whether sitting at the bar or a table. It seems to be getting busier again, so a reservation is recommended.

    Sorry, to say… unfortunately, we do not have a good review for this visit. Sadly, it is no longer a favorite. Honestly, it had been a while since our last visit which also wasn’t great! After changing their menu, reducing portion size of apps and meals and dropping a few menu favorites. We’ve decided it’s no longer our go to!

    Made our reservation the night before for 7pm Friday night. The place was very busy but we were seated immediately on time! Our server, Elizabeth was very friendly and attentive. I had the Halibut, it was prepared and presented wonderfully, and delicious! The other meal was the Roasted Chicken salad which my husband also said was wonderful. We didn't have dessert we didn't have room. Unfortunately we don't live in the area or we would definitely be back.
