Amazing food! The best burger I’ve ever had! Service is excellent, atmosphere the Porsche heaven. Noise level is moderate because it is on the raceway. Every detail is Porsche because there is no substitute...lol.
The only bummer was that the retail store was closed.

We love 917 Restaurant and have dined there several times pre-Covid. So we took advantage of the outdoor offering for my daughter’s birthday. They were so accommodating. The menu is very limited. And we missed the ambiance of the indoors. But the food is delicious. Unfortunately the outdoors downstairs seemed to suffer from the odor of a nearby garbage bin. But these are hard times. I can’t wait to return after pandemic precautions are lifted and highly recommend 917 to everyone.

I had a wonderful lunch at 917 and I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Now, because of the pandemic they are not in their usual upstairs location but the staff and menu was still wonderful and I would still recommend this restaurant. I bought one of the driving experiences at the Center and the lunch at this place really hit the spot afterwards. The staff was very nice and professional, it was a very broad menu for being lunch time and I enjoyed the seating in the shade. I thought the complimentary pretzel rolls were outstanding and I really enjoyed the burger I ordered. I had an amazing time at the Center and the lunch was amazing. I would not hesitate to try 917 again.

Great experience in the current Pandemic state. 917 has opened for lunch on the Patio where you can see the cars all lined up for the Porsche Experience customers.

The menu is understandably limited though we all got to choose something we liked and they still have the Porsche touches like the 911 shaped butter.

Service was quick, attentive and friendly.

We plan to dine here again.

Outstanding food and great selection on the menu- something for any taste. Oysters and scallop appetizers were fabulous, the Filet Mignon main course was cooked as ordered and to perfection, and the meat was as tender as you can imagine. Deserts were a great way to compliment a wonderful meal.

My wife and I can be categorized as regular patrons. In addition to the dining experience(s) for parties of 2-4, I have also hosted a birthday celebration in my wife's honor with 28 guests. We have never been disappointed by the ambiance, food, or service.

On this occasion our Server Nestor, maintained our historical satisfaction in all criteria.
