Modern Australian dining.
Porters owners, Zoey and John of Williamstown opened their doors in September 2018. Wanting a challenge, they built a diverse but delicate menu to coordinate with their glamourous, but expansive restaurant footprint.
Evening dinners are available Wednesday - Saturday from 5.30pm and lunch on a Sunday 12pm or enjoy drinks in The Lounge from our award wining wine list.
We hope to see you soon at Porters. Call for your reservation: 03 9397 1251 or book your reservation online.

    Fantastic quality, very helpful service with charm, excellent food and drink menu. We had the steaks off the 'specials menu' which were perfectly cooked and full of flavour. Lovely tiramsu dessert...in a tea cup!! Always a great restaurant to visit and great welcome from the team - Thank you Porters😁

    Had the winter warmers specials x 3 and very good. Only small issue was my wife asked if she could have mash with steak rather than chips and told not possible. Otherwise vv good

    Ambience, service & food were all great. A little pricey, but not a lot of choice for an up scale restaurant in Williamstown. I'll be back

    Went for a Sunday roast and was the best beef roast I’ve ever had! Meat was cooked to perfection and was so soft! Would definitely come back for the Sunday roast, and at $25, was great value!

    Thank you Chantelle, for your wonderful review. We're delighted you enjoyed your lunch with us last Sunday. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

    Unfortunately steaks were over cooked, requested sauce on the side however came out poured over the top. Scallops cooked to perfection.

    Porters provides an affordable dining experience with its 'specials' option available Wed-Fri and Sun. All the while still providing a friendly welcoming ambience with great service and excellent wine and beer choices. Highly recommend - you won't be disappointed....oh, and the dessert are heavenly too!

    The food and service is good, but because we go regularly we have tried the whole menu and it gets boring eating the same thing.
    PortersResponded on June 19, 2024
    Thank you, Robin, for your continued support. We're excited to inform you that we've added some new dishes to the menu this week for you to enjoy. Also, have you had a chance to try our $25 specials, from Steak Night to Fish Night? We look forward to your next visit!

    8 of us had a lovely dinner, staff were friendly and attentive. We bought our own cake and paid per person plate fee but the staff served it to us along with ice-cream on the side which was a nice touch! An enjoyable experience overall.
