We ate out side. They didn't have any heaters, but the weather was nice. The Walleye balls were yummy. They had the best chicken sandwich that I have ever tasted. We enjoyed the drinks and the service. Overall, it was a positive experience! I would recommend.
As always it was very nice. The menu is limited but good. Service, as always, attentive and happy. Thank You Smith and Porter team. It was really nice.
Great service. Comfortable atmosphere
As good as ever on a Sunday night. We always feel special.
This ia a great place in the heart of the Guthrie zone. Very nice patio that's set well back from the street, with a welcoming staff and good food at reasonable prices. The dry rub wings were yummy, and we shared the tender steak salad. We will definitely return.
If you haven’t experienced this restaurant don’t wait , food, service and ambiance were incredible! Value for the money was perfect! Thanks to the entire team for making my evening so enjoyable.... and best bowl of soup I’ve had in years!
Food was very well prepared and tasted great. Wines were excellent. Interesting food selection. Service was good. Only gripe was that they brought my main course (the Tacos from Taco Tuesday) about 2 minutes after they brought my salad. I'd definitely eat there again.
As always we felt welcome and served with great consideration. We simply love Smith and Porter.
Great dinner and ambiance!
Great food and service! And OMG the smoked old fashions are great!
I don’t know how this place can survive in the North Loop/Mill District. It’s like fancy suburban American food but no where as good as the competing restaurants nearby. But the prices aren’t low either

Try the Vegetable Steamed Buns! Seriously the best thing I've tasted in a very long time.
Hi Nick, Thank you so much for your review. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed the Vegetable steam buns, as they are one of our favorites! Look for some seasonal entrée changes coming on October. Warm Regards, The Smith & Porter Team
My husband and I had dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was lovely.
Thank you for making my spouses birthday a wonderful experience once again.
Hello, Thank you so much for your review and for sharing your special occasion with us once again. Warm Regards, The Smith & Porter Team
Delicious summer salad with peaches, blueberries, walnuts, avocado, and mozzarella. The Walleye bites appetizer and the carrot cake were also very good. Disappointed at 5:30pm the Vilandloo vegetarian dish was sold out.
Steak was done perfectly. Limited menu but everything on the menu was done very well
Meh food at high prices. Service was apathetic too.
Hi Jeff, Thank you so much for your review. I am very sorry to hear your visit was disappointing. I would love the chance to hear more about it, so we can make it right and so this doesn't happen in the future. I can be reached by phone at 612-249-5503 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, Vanessa Cortez
Great space, food, n services
Food was okay, but it felt like a mediocre country club.
Good, but limited menu for to covid. I would like to go back when it gets back to normal to see it in it's full operation.
We are regulars for a reason. Excellent service, good food, nice ambience and enough space to be comfortable.
Absolutely Delightful food, a hidden gem in the city!
Was nice to sit outside; Took advantage of restaurant week.
Restaurant week. We were looking forward to the pork chop. However it was not up to expectations it was not very moist and rather tuff.
As always, we love Smith and Porter. Very good service-we are being spoiled by close attention.
We sat outside. Was nice just us. Minneapolis was pretty deserted on this particular night (Friday in July 2020). Food was good. Seemed to be a small menu.
Good value during restaurant week. Awesome gin martini: new Amsterdam gin, drapo vermouth.
Went out for restaurant week. Enjoyed a nice date night. Food was fabulous.
Went with my S.O. and my parents who were visiting for the weekend. Decided on family feast. Best burgers I've had a very long time. We will be back for more. Highly reccomend! Our host and staff were awesome.
In the world of Covid, patios are just the best. there was a cute little puppy next to us who barked whenever she wasn't napping, but we didn't mind. The food was great, the servers were awesome, and the drinks were on point (besides serving a Negroni in a Martini glass, haha.) Everything was wonderful and I'd go back again in a heartbeat.
I liked the new menu and enjoyed the outdoor patio. The staff is friendly, masked, gloved and tables 6’ apart. Great place in the neighborhood.
Such great service! All precautions taken. Abb n’ d the good is amazingly delicious!
Very good experience with very attentive and friendly staff
Hi Darrell, Thank you so much for your review. We're delighted to hear of your positive experience. We hope to see you again soon. Warm regards, The Smith & Porter Team
I enjoyed my reservation at Smith and Porter. Their drinks are well-made and food is delicious!
Hi Allie, Thank you so much for your review. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your food and drinks. We do hope you visit us again! Regards, The Smith & Porter Team
Gloria and I have been there a couple times since they reopened. We live in the neighborhood so we like to support local places. Would like to see the menu change or get a little bigger, while I understand it’s difficult under the present conditions.
Hi Hank, Thank you so much for your review and your continued patronage. We are slowly expanding the menu as we adjust to the new norm. We just added a few items this past week! Menus are updated online in case you'd like to sneak a glance. Cheers, The Smith & Porter Team
Especially taking the changed circumstances, Smith and Porter is doing a wonderful job adjusting. The seating is considerate, service good, as usual, the reduced menu very nice. They also have adapted to the need for accommodating people with special dietary needs, like gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, all now nicely marked on the one-sheet menu. Love it!
Wonderful service with proper social distancing. It was my first time out in 3.5montjs and it was wonderful. Thank you All.
Hi Seafoodfan, Thank you for your review. We're delighted that your first visit post-Covid was a wonderful experience. We hope there are many more to come! Regards, The Smith & Porter Team
Great outdoor seating on the patio and service was great.
Prompt, excellent, thorough service. Excellent food. We felt so welcome and comfortable.
Hi Stan, Thank you so much for your review. We're honored by your kind words about the staff and food. We do hope you join us again as we are slowly introducing more items to the menu. Regards, The Smith & Porter Team
