Our dinner service was great! 6 girls ate the last night before the MN shutdown and we couldn’t have been more pleased to eat our last meal at Porter Creek. The salmon paired with a red blend was the best!

Food is average. Nothing outstanding. Service was also average. Goat cheese appetizer was very disappointing. After we paid our bill, we sat at our table for another hour as we finished our bottle of wine. Our waitress never came back to fill our water glasses. Maybe she left but another wait person should have stopped by. Table waiting 101.

Everything went great. From the hostess greeting me, recognizing my reservation right away and leading me to my friend that was already seated.
We went early due to evening plans and enjoyed Happy Hour on our wine and food.
The service was excellent!

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.
