While our food (especially the sides) were not very hot, everything was delicious. We wolfed down everything from appetizers to dessert. They also make an excellent martini. Will definitely be back again.

It was a great experience! I went with my wife for our first anniversary. I really appreciated the drinks available and the effort that went into crafting some of the classic cocktails they offered. Our steaks were excellent and we were very satisfied.

Went to Porter's to celebrate Father's Day. I ordered the pork chop, and it was delicious! It also was HUGE. Brussel Sprouts also are delicious. We had them as one of our appetizers...so yummy!

The 14 oz ribeye and filet were both seasoned and cooked to perfection. The hint of hickory was perfect with the Steaks. The grilled broccolini had the hickory smoke flavor that added that special touch. Highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion as the service was also outstanding.

Our food was fantastic, our server was horrible. I gave him an 8 % tip and I never do that...I would have given him 0% if not that I was taking our son out for a nice dinner. Our server - 1) was aloof 2) took away a 1/2 finished cornbread and had to ask to bag up 3) got coffee and he didn't offer cream, sweetener or a spoon. I had to ask. 3) Brought our dessert without a knife or fork. We got the donuts, they need silverware. 4) In general, our server was un-attentive, on the verge of rude, did not care about us and pretty much made me feel my $100 casual dinner was a waste. On the other hand, the food was on point.

I typically go to Porters because it is convenient for my work (many guests stay at the George, so we can walk over to Porters for dinner). The food, service, etc is predictable and of high quality. It is not as good as the Republic (for steak) or Veritas (for fish), although the quality at Veritas seems to be dropping off.

This is probably the best restaurant in College Station. The food was impeccable (the wagyu flank steak was seasoned to perfection) and the service was wonderful. I highly recommend Porters to anyone looking for a high quality dining experience!

We had a great dinner at Porter's while visiting my daughter for the weekend. We made the reservation on Open Table, but had to add to and revise the time. We were staying at The George Hotel, so I stopped by Porter's the day before, and they graciously accommodated us in getting the time and guest number changes we need. When we arrived for our reservation, we were promptly greeted, and our meal and service for the night was outstanding. I'd recommend Porter's to anyone visiting College Station and looking for an elevated dining experience.

The host, Justin was very helpful. Our waitress, Savannah was very courteous. We enjoyed our service. The steak is amazing, but the salmon and Mac-n-cheese could’ve used a bit more seasoning. Overall, we really enjoyed it and will be back.

I needed to try the food here, for a potential private party later. Boy, did I get my answer. Everything we ordered was bad except the salmon entree: the egg roll appetizer was dry and sparsely filled; the 14 oz prime ribeye had gristle at almost every cut, although it was seasoned well; the macaroni and cheese was bland and grainy. The brussel sprouts were too burnt, and missing the 'meat' of the sprouts. I think they simply scraped together burned outer leaves for us. I normally would complain about something (namely, cutting so much gristle off a $46 steak). If I had, they may have rectified the situation, but I had been driving for hours and was too tired to complain about food.
