Came here for my mom’s birthday. Made reservations. Staff very welcoming. After being seated, noticed on top of menu, a Happy Birthday message to my mom, which was very nice. Food and drinks were incredible. Definitely glad I made the trip from Modesto and plan on coming back again.

It was delicious!! I’ve only been there for Brunch, but really enjoyed the dinner!! My boyfriend said the Shrimp and Grits were one of the best he ever had. The fried green tomatoes were out of this world!! Our drinks were fun and interesting!! Our server was excellent!! I feel bad I don’t remember his name!! I think Nick?? He has worked there for 5 years and his mom now lives in North Carolina and we were sharing stories because that’s where my granddaughter lives!! He was so pleasant and helpful with his recommendations! Thank you for a lovely dinner followed by Music Circus and thanks for the 10% discount!!

I think it was the host's first day, as we checked in for our Noon reservations at about 11:50, waited ten minutes and our table was given to another party. So we were seated in an in-between table near the bar. Server hardly visited our table, refilled our drinks once. Soft-shell crab was undercooked, as the shell was not crunchy like it is supposed to be once fully cooked. Overall I'd recommend this for someone to try if they've never been, but don't have any reason to go back.

I usually love The Porch and this is the first time I've been less than pleased and left underwhelmed. The server was very friendly, but we had to constantly ask for refills of our drinks (coffee, ice tea, water). Glasses would sit empty for a long time and the server was never proactive to fill them. Also, my friend got the chicken and waffles. We've had it before and it's fantastic. This time, however, the chicken came out in small scrap like pieces and was a much smaller amount than other orders going by. Also, no butter for the waffle and only 1 slice of bacon where it was supposed to be 2. We were with other people and my friend didn't want to say anything to get it corrected. That's on her... She should have done that. Still, they were off their game that day and the experience was lacking. I'll be back because I know they are good, but if it had been my first visit I may not be as inclined to give them another chance.

Not that friendly at the hostess stand. Very noisy. Waited too long to get refills on coffee. Took a little longer than expected to get food. Very friendly waiter. Pricey for the proportions and the food was just okay.

I have eaten there before and loved it. Maybe it was just a bad day ???

Not a huge place so if the crowds are there be ready to speak up. Sac PD should also park outside and wait for all the DUI drivers lol

A nice spot for special occasions - they wrote Happy Birthday at the top of the menu and supplied a birthday dessert. The menu is limited and has lots of fried items on it - but you can find some yummy items on the healthier side too.

The place was fantastic. We were there with a group of 5 with a reservation and we were seated 15 mins early. They had customized our menus with my fiance's birthday on top. The place was cute and clean. The drinks were delicious and the food was phenomenal. The location had street parking but it was bad for a sunday brunch.

I truly enjoyed my experience.
I just moved to Sacramento, CA from Long Beach, CA and The Porch was my first dining experience.
I tried making reservations for my birthday 9/9/2019 but was unable to get a reservation...will try again.
I love the food and atmosphere.
My best friend will be coming to visit me soon and the porch is on the agenda!

Went to brunch for a work colleague's birthday. Were able to sit out on "The Porch" and had a lovey meal. Portions are hearty and everyone enjoyed their menu choices. Nice touch was to add the birthday girl's name to the menu for the day and a surprise scoop of ice cream with a candle after our meal. We'll be back.

My first time at The Porch. It was a Sunday evening after a Music Circus show, so I expected the restaurant to be quite busy, but and there were a lot of open tables. They even had a sign giving a discount to Music Circus attendees showing their tickets. This made me a little worried initially. However, the server was polite, professional, and was attentive without being smothering. The menu is a little limited with options, but the food was excellent! We started with the cornbread appetizer and the jelly it's served with is the highlight. I had the chicken fried steak and could cut it with my fork. It was served on a bed of mashed potatoes with a fantastic gravy on top. Portion sizes were very generous. We also tried the fried chicken entree and it was beautifully cooked, crispy outside while staying tender and moist on the inside. Ended he meal with beignets served with fruit and more of the exceptional jelly. Overall, a great meal and I plan to go back soon to try more menu items.

There was a little discrepancy with our waitress who overall was wonderful. I noticed at another table that the waiter cleared the appetizer dishes and silverware. Our waitress did not. Not too big of a deal.
However, she ordered the wrong wine for me that I didn't notice until I was looking at the bill. I asked for Chloe which was $8 a glass and she charged me for the chardonnay that begins with a M. that was $10. We chose to make up the difference in her tip.
And the place is super noisy.

I love this place! The service is always great, and though they are not a vegan restaurant, they have delicious vegan options and are quick to accommodate in any way possible to provide a delicious vegan meal.
