    I'm not sure what happened. New chef? Supply chain issues? How does a Southern Comfort food restaurant run out of gumbo before the dinner rush? Frozen cauliflower and corn? Only enough mint for 2 julips? The Porch should rename itself to the "Back" Porch as you'll probably need to send something back to the kitchen!

    It was Mothers Day and they were able to accommodate us indoors even tho reso was for outdoors. Ended up being a cold day! Service was excellent and food was delicious. We were the last reservation of their day, but they did not try to hurry us out at all. Was a lovely meal!

    The Porch was a nice brunch out for Mother's day. The Hostess was super, the wait staff seemed a bit harried, as if they were short handed. The food was good, although not too many low sugar/carb/calorie options! Price point reasonable and good value these days!

    I took my mom to the Porch for Mother's day brunch. It was very nice. The food was good and the mimosas were well priced. Looking around, I think all the moms having were enjoying themselves.

    The only take away from all 5 stars. They brought the appetizer at the same time as my dates dinner salad. Then like 30 minutes later, they brought my dinner, and my dates fries.

    This was a Mother’s Day celebration dinner. We all enjoyed our food…esp. the fried chicken plate with sides, the fried chicken strips over a waffle, and the jambalaya. Our server, Robert, was excellent. Thank you!

    We drove all the way from Benicia, Ca to have lunch with a friend for her Birthday. I scouted out restaurants and thought this one would be a good choice….not. When I ordered the Shrimp and grits at 3:00 in the afternoon, I was told that the cook said they were out of grits and it would take an hour before I could get an order. Now any cook knows that it doesn’t take that long to cook grits. Then after I said, that’s fine I will wait ….they magically showed up 20 minutes later. Then I ordered Fried chicken, greens and Mac and cheese to go….I do not know how anyone could sale food so bland and lacking taste. It was such a disappointing dining experience, I will never go back again.

    I’ve eaten here many times, and always look forward to it. Today, something was just off..when both our plates arrived at the table the food was barely Luke warm. I ordered Biscuits and gravy. The biscuit was hard requiring a knife to cut it. I’m sure it was cooked the day before. The gravy was cold and not enough to enjoy both biscuits. Everyone has a bad day sometimes, I get that. I will be back, however if this happens again, I’ll move on.

    A nice Southern style menu. We ordered the Brie as an appetizer that was wonderful. While eating that we ordered the fried chicken. After 30 minutes the waiter came back to our table and said there wasn’t any chicken. We were surprised it took so long to tell us. We ordered Jambalaya to share. When it arrived there were only 3 shrimp pieces. Another waitress who brought it told me and my husband she would get us more shrimp. We hadn’t asked. She offered, except she never came back with the shrimp. When my husband wanted a refill of his soda he had to get up and go to the bar to ask. Nobody came and followed up. I think with the right service this could be a great place. The waiter discounted our bill. We waited over an hour for our Jambalaya. Unfortunately based on many restaurant experiences this one is unforgettable and I wish I could say in a good way.

    It was a great restaurant! Food was amazing! Waiter was perfect! Very personable and able to handle our joke about "No latte's." It would be nice to have an espresso machine, as that did sound good. Had a great day out with my best friend and my boyfriend. The brie, bread, apples and greens were so yummy! So was the grilled cheese eggs benedict. Will definitely come back!

    We came here for a business/friend dinner during a busy time. Our waiter was friendly and efficient while having a lot on his plate. We are casual and don't worry about having to wait for our food order but it was a while before we could get our food. Overall 9.5/10. Would definitely return again.

    Great food, but the staff seem kind of angry. If you're going here before theater, plan accordingly. It took us 45 minutes to get food, and we had allocated an hour for lunch, so we had to hustle to eat and get the check.

    Sunday late afternoon birthday brunch (outside seating) at The Porch; special menu with the birthday girls' names (nice touch). Food was good, service was good, traffic noise was problematic (lots of very loud motorcycles).

    Our server was inattentive. Food took over an hour. Other diners were served and left before we were served. Had to take food to go because we ran out of time. Had to ask for our server to come to our table twice and eventually she had the food wrapped up and our bill ready. The restaurant was not busy. We won't be back. Hopefully this is a great place and we just had a unique experience.

    We were excited to come back to have the chicken in waffles. It had been so long but decided to make the trek downtown for my husbands bday. The server greeted us and told us ticket times were long so we should order ASAP. Not only did it take upwards of 45mins for the food but surprisingly it was pretty cold. The chicken was dry and the waffles soft. The kids meal had the same if not more chicken with fries but at less than 1/2 the price. Odd. I would definitely say that waffles and syrup are not worth $12 more. Overall just bummed that it wasn’t what we remembered.
