Had a burger that was “award winning” yet I’m not aware which award it revived. Burger was not well cooked, bun was extra soggy and the fries tasted old.

My co-worker has a César salad that was pure lettuce with no other ingredients.

Nice place but terrible food.

Porter Kitchen and Deck was a very good place for our family lunch. The only real problem we encountered was the "roll call" for plates as they were delivered to the table. I was in the biz for many years, there are multiple ways of communicating which entrée goes to which guest, but somehow they didn't get that right. Otherwise, everything was top notch!

Sitting along the river was peaceful and liked the inside decor of the restaurant.

Had the tomato soup and half of egg salad sandwich - not very exciting but was okay.

Great location, with alfresco dining (just loud when El went by) and food (apps, entrees and desserts) was delicious.

Although we had a great service and nice view, the food really came short of expectations.

Porter is fine, especially the lobster roll. If you can get a table on the river, you should, just don't expect fine dining.

Great location right on the river and food was good. Had the rosemary chicken and it was very delicious, Only negative was service was very slow and waitress wasn't very friendly. But location can't be beat.
